I used to be a great sleeper- would sleep 8 hours no problem my entire life until my son was born. He of course woke several times a night to eat, but after 4 months when he started sleeping through the night, I kept waking up. I used to look at... (more)
It's actually natural to wake up once in the night. It always happens in experiments where people don't have clocks and rely on the sun to know when to go to sleep. Just occupy yourself for an hour and go back to sleep.
please help me hack my sleep. it seems like i have everything right. i go to bed at 10-11 every night, usually sleeping for 8-9 hours. i take some natural calm before bed. my diet is solid. i'm doing yoga twice a week and some minimal other... (more)

How is your caffeine intake? I went from about 6 cups a day, always stopping before 1:00 thinking if I did that it wouldn't matter, to a strict 2 cup a day limit (cups not giant travel mugs) and I have seen vast improvement in my sleep and energy... (more)
