I usually wake up frequently and have trouble falling asleep at night. I’ve tried many things to improve. Melatonin, Relaxation, Exercise, Trazodone… I have been doing better most nights.

Last night I couldn’t sleep. I rested which will help me get through the day. I do not know what brought this on.

Yes, that is a dog above my head.

Facty Health has a very good description of the symptoms.

  • Difficulty falling asleep
  • Waking up during the night
  • Waking up earlier than usual
  • Still feeling tired after a long sleep session
  • A lack of energy and tiredness during the day
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • A lack of focus
  • An increased chance of error or accident
  • A reduced memory

Personally I think that anxiety and depression may be the cause rather than a symptom. It’s one one of those situations like which came first? The chicken or the egg.

Today I may end up taking a nap. I am that exhausted. Usually, I try not to nap unless I am not feeling well, because I sleep better at night.

Do you have trouble sleeping? If so what helps you sleep?

Love, Peace and Light! Rita
