Can’t SleepPosted: August 21, 2009 Filed under: Random Thoughts Comments Off on Can’t Sleep
I have been having a lot of trouble sleeping lately. I decided to try and figure out what the heck was causing all this sleep trouble. I know that I suffer from low blood sugar. I need to eat pretty frequently throughout the day, but I don’t always do a good job of it. When my blood sugar drops during the day, I get tired and kind of crabby. As soon as I eat, I usually feel better.
Well, my sleep has been less than desirable lately. I have tried going to bed early, going to bed late, drinking herbal tea before bed, taking a bath, reading a book before bed, etc, etc, etc… I usually end up waking up several times throughout the night and once 5am hits, I seem to be wide awake. So annoying. I feel sluggish all day. I need to get some better rest. Well, this article that I found suggests eating a snack before bed- one that is high in protein. I think I might try eating Turkey before bed. I will let you know how it goes.
