Requirements [Apr. 9th, 2009|08:55 am]
[Current Mood |exhaustedexhausted]

The doctor gave me a new list of requirements yesterday.  I'm going to try to keep track of them, and note my progress here.

-Get up at the same time each morning.  if I wake up early, do not go back to sleep.  Go outside for a thirty minute walk as soon as I get up AND it's light outside.
-Start a bedtime ritual.  Take medication, brush teeth, possibly take a shower if its relaxing, read for a bit.  After 30 minutes, go into a dark, quiet, cool room and fall asleep.  If partner snores, sleep in a separate room.  (I know I won't follow that last little bit.  Probably should have talked about it more, but I was too tired).
-Get the book Say Goodnight to Insomnia, and read it.
-Eliminate as much caffeine as possible from my diet.
-Start exercising as soon as possible.
-Eat better.
