This morning, while searching for things to do in the morning when everyone else is still asleep, I ran across this article I thought I would share: 17 Ways to Wake Up Feeling Fresh in the Morning.

Yes, it has a long name, but it made me realize (even more) the importance of having a regular schedule and healthy habits.

I would love to hear your thoughts about any/all of these and any other suggestions that have worked for you to have a restful sleep and wake up feeling good. :)

May the Force be with you all!

I've had sleep issues for many years now. I'm a light sleeper and I frequently awaken during the night. On top of that I am also a heavy snorer (my fiancee loves this) and suffer from sleep apnea. The fact that I have to get up at 5 am doesn't help either. So I'm usually always tired to some extent.

Nobody should underestimate what a good night's rest could do for you. It's not only beneficial physically but emotionally and mentally as well.

Thanks for posting this. I hope some of these can prove helpful to me.

That's a good article and there are a few pointers I definitely need to be better at:

1) Get up straight away (no snoozing)

2) Go to bed and get up at the same times each day (something I'm failing at as I type this, haha)

----

On the other hand, I am definitely a night exerciser; if I exercise in the morning, it seriously tires me out the rest of the day. I exercise at night and am usually exhausted and fall right to sleep.

Anyway, thanks for posting the article!

I think I'm going to bed now, haha.

The other person in the bed can be a distraction if they toss and turn. We tried getting rid of the big mattress but kept its base and got 2 single mattresses onto the larger base... and it was enough difference to not notice the other person rolling around. Pillow top mattresses seem to make the edge borders, which would otherwise stuck up in the middle, almost unnoticeable - so its just as big, but better buffered being technically separate. Works good!

PS: King base + 2 Long-size Single mattresses fit perfectly, so 2 long singles beds next to each other must be the same as a King size bed but probably cheaper!!

What about sleep number beds? That's what I have. It's a king and it's on the ground on the bases.. There are two bases..?

That's a really good idea Adder. I'm a fitful sleeper, constantly kicking and tossing and turning. I think my fiancée would like the idea of two separate mattresses on one frame.

Yes your right Reliah, the King is on two seperate frames, but we have the little hook thing connecting them so a it tends to behave like a single unit. Its also really easy to move the bed if you move houses!!!! Sorry for the confusion. I hadn't seen sleep numbers, looks interesting thanks.

I've always had trouble sleeping, there are times where I lay in bed and can't feel tired or even drift into sleep at all, or constantly awaken. Then there are days in which I sleep perfectly, wish I could pinpoint whats going on. But I might have to look into changing up my sleep habits even if it might be a tad difficult :P

There's an app I got on my HTC called SleepBot and basically it tracks how long you sleep for each night and then shows how much debt you have. So if you need to sleep more or less. Its been really useful recently

    • Suicide (Last post by KDave)
    • I have had personal experience with deep depression and attempted suicide. The trials of life sure make ending it an attractive solution. I think it all comes down to your Will. Do you have the Will to fight on? or the Will to let go of your troubles? or the Will to say 'I'm not done yet'? We all must face our battles. Win or lose, we must learn from these battles. Accept what has happened, then LET IT GO. I believe that our spirit can't rest if we die uneasy. We need to find peace of mind and acceptance of ourselves in order to move on after death. Our spirit can't rest if we 'had to end it.' Some believe that we reincarnate if we die with acceptance and peace: We get to do it again, hopefully, better the next time. My experience is: I only wanted to kill myself because I didn't seek peace of mind, understanding, and acceptance. Now that I am on the Jedi path, suicide isn't needed anymore. I can now accept, learn, and LET IT GO. With the Force, there is no suicide. May the force be with you

    • Bjj has been doing the same thing in many cases. The way we roll in the dojo, or in visiting another dojo is not like doing so in a tournament. The rules do not allow spine locks, neck cranks, or reaping the leg if you are wearing a gi. However, all of that is still taught and trained. Same with Judo. Competition usually hits the lowest common denominator in what is allowed, and in some ways I get it. In BJJ, there has been a rise of submission only events that allow anything to be used and those are a lot more attack oriented, and in my opinion fun. Technically, in 2016 there is no such thing as BJJ as it was in the early 90s when the UFC came out. Its as I call it(coined by Jeff Glover) "Mixed grappling arts" because yes, you see Judo, Sambo, Wrestling, etc, all incorporated in these days. Then, there is always the Vale Tudo aspect of BJJ, which, you can still find the older guys that did it and will teach you some wicked stuff if you are willing to listen, suffer(always), and put in the mat time. Most of them are willing to share if you seem like a person willing to put in the mat time. The information is still readily available for those intrepid martial artists who seek to keep improving their game.

    • The Avengers and Phil Coulson endorse Hillary. (Last post by Merin Kyo Den)
    • Quote: I'm not sure they "endorse Hillary" so much as "Suggest that Trump is a bit more of a risk" (I don't have a horse in this race. I'm sure they're both as awful as anyone else in politics) This has always baffled me. How exactly is Trump more of a risk than someone that's participated in the destabilization of the middle east for 8+years now, voted for CISPA, NDAA, The extension of the patriot act, so on and so forth? I'm sure if you asked the families of the weeding party where we drone bombed 70+ people, many of them children, who was more of a risk, you might get a different reply. Trump is more of a risk in that he's an unknown. He's never held any office, never been responsible for policy, and was in fact pretty chummy with the Clintons until a little before this election cycle. We really can't say with any certainty what Trump will do, but we can say what Clinton will do, just ask Libya.
