Waking up every three hours needing to eat and pee? I do that now.

It is important to use your online social networks to seek support from friends and family to keep your spirits up and maintain your mental health.

Sleeping like a baby is a good thing? Babies wake up every few hours and cry.

Meh, I take a powerful edible about 2 hours before bed. While not "drug free" my method works and it's a hell of a lot more enjoyable than anything suggested in the article.

I had to resort to my old standby coma cocktail of 2 advil PM, 3 ZMA pills, and 10mg of melatonin for the last 2 months.  for a long time I only took the melatonin and ZMA, but the diphenhydramine is the only thing that puts me out now.

It works but leaves me a wreck for the first 2 hours of the morning.  which i guess beats the alternative of sleeping for 2 hours a night.  Hoping that work from home continues until mid june, as I have had a 2 week vacation the last 2 weeks of the month scheduled.  That would give me a chance to reset my sleep pattern.. hopefully.

you'll sleep better if you limit your protein for your evening/last meal of the day.  focus more on complex carbs/fats and you'll sleep better.

Protein tells the body its time to get up and go.

also, don't eat a big salad for the last meal of the day. lots of vitamins/minerals tells your body to get up and go too.

its a vicious cycle that creates dependency on drugs to put you to sleep.

wanna know why coffee drinkers feel so sluggish in the morning?   they're going thru caffeine withdrawl.


watch the caffeine/nicotine after late morning/noon.

limit or eliminate Protein for your last meal of the day.  focus on complex carbs/fats.  also don't eat a big ass salad for your last meal either.  too many vitamins gets your body/mind going.

cut the lights down around 2 hours before bedtime.  and no blue light from computer smartphone screens. that light will keep you up.

don't do anything stressful or anything that requires thinking an hour or two before bedtime.  do something relaxing.

alcohol interferes with sleep.  it might put u to sleep but then can interfere with brain sleep patterns thorughout the night.

and don't drink alot of fluids within 3 or 4 hours of bedtime or u might be getting up all the time to piss.
