I’m such a night owl, and have such poor discipline when it comes to going to bed early. I like to stay up, usually on the computer doing different things. even now it’s 2:30 a.m.!
How do you discipline yourself for this? I’ve been this way most of my life…I want to look good on my wedding day, not full of eye bags and wrinkles.

Me too!! I now have a job working 11pm-7am…..I hate the sound of an alarm clock in the AM!!!
Do you like to read? Perhaps start reading a 1/2 hour before bed to make you sleepy? I’ve also read that attempting to get ready for bed 1 hour before you want to – start by turning off the lights, put the tv on low (if you have one in the bedroom), take a shower….eventually overtime its supposed to trigger your body to get sleepy when you start you pre-bedtime rituals.
They say to also start off slowly….if you normally go to bed at Midnight…the next night aim for 11:45….then 11:30…and so on…

take a sleeping pill for a few nights before the big day….nothing major, but at least then you can get a few days of really good rest. Plus, if you try it out prior to the night before, you can make sure you dont have icky side effects.

Hmm…I like the 15 minute earlier thing.
I did try that once. It worked for a little while. But then just went back to my old ways. But I can try again! 🙂

When I am at home I am usually in bed by 10. I have found that on days that I don’t work out then I have a harder time sleeping. Of course when I travel for work I have a hard time sleeping. I watch tv or mess around on the internet when I should be sleeping.

Yes, I am still up. Ever since I stayed up late typing a paper a few weeks ago, my sleep pattern has been off.

Especially this week, I’ve been having a rotten time sleeping between the new puppy and the rotten weather we’ve been having.
