Everybody has experienced waking up in the middle of the night extremely hot or extremely cold. But my hot/cold episodes happen much more frequently than they should, and that has to do with the temperature and setting I place myself in. When I go to bed, I'm normally drowsy and ready for sleep so I don't feel like taking the time to make my sleeping setting just right. This article has given me the motivation and good tips on getting my setting to its ideal condition because I sometimes lose hours of sleep since I wake up several times a night due to temperature discomfort. The article suggests sleeping in between 65 to 72 degrees as room temperature, but the comfort level for temperature varies on each person. So I will experiment with hotter or colder temperatures to see how frequently I wake up and how sound I sleep each night. The article states that a mild drop in body temperature induces sleep. So if my room is slightly cooler than usual, that's the standard for most sound sleeps, and I will have less hot flash episodes in the middle of the night. I will also start wearing socks and a hat before going to bed because if my feet and head are warm, the rest of my body will be warm as well. Reducing the amount of times I wake up in the morning in uncomfortable temperatures will be beneficial to my health and amount of sleep I get.

The hardest part of my day has always been waking up in the morning. I wake up at 4:45 AM every morning since I have zero period, and even if I go to bed early, the fatigue is still present once my alarm goes off. I read this article to gain inspiration on how to improve my morning routine of waking up. The part of this article that I find most intriguing is that it infers that there is no complicated recipe on exactly how to wake yourself up and feel motivated to get out of bed. You just do it and get it over with. To expand on that, nobody ever wants to get out of bed in the morning. If I did things that I wanted to do, I would still be in bed by now. The secret to not sleeping in is just making yourself get up when your alarm clock goes off. A good tip that the article provided and that I will try tonight is to set my alarm clock across the room so I have to get up in order to turn it off. In getting up, I will naturally be waking myself up. Waking up at the same time every morning is the best way for getting my body and mind used to the early rise. Patterns and routine activity is how the brain makes strong neural connections; thus, going to bed and waking up at the same time every day will make it easier for me to get up in the morning. Another good old-fashioned tip that the article reminded me of is just doing warming up exercises in order to feel rejuvenated. I haven't done this since I was young, but it helps tremendously to do a few jumping jacks, pushups, and lunges in order to eradicate morning fatigue.

Rachel VanHorne's curator insight, April 11, 2013 1:09 PM

Because I'm an athlete, I need the best types of food to give me energy without weighing me down to preserve the most efficient use of my time and energy during a workout. I will try baby carrots and bananas throughout my workout. The carrots' natural sugars sustain athletes throughout their workout without making them feel heavy. Before I worked out, I usually have heavier foods like a sandwhich or bread. Another fun way to get excited before a workout is trying a light smoothie before working out. It's important to eat before and after working out, and I was never sure on what type of foods were good to eat without weighing down the athlete. The most filling snack that I can try if I start to lose energy before working out is a granola bar. It's filling with the nuts, berries, and granola, but won't weigh me down like more cholestrol foods will.

How Green Tea Help to Lose Belly Fat in Men | Benefits of Green Tea

How Green Tea Help to Lose Belly Fat in Men | Benefits of Green Tea | Health and Sleep | Scoop.it

A 2007 Japanese study of people with visceral fat suggests green tea may help get rid of belly fat. Visceral fat refers to fat in the tummy area that is deep enough to affect internal organs. In the double-blind study published in "Obesity," subjects ingesting green tea extract with a type of polyphenol called catechins lost more visceral fat and had smaller waistlines after 12 weeks than people ingesting green tea extract with fewer catechins. Additionally, in a 2011 study, feeding mice a high-fat diet enriched with high doses of green tea extract resulted in decreased weight gain and prevented the accumulation of visceral fat.

Can You Cure of Insomnia with Green Tea | Benefits of Green Tea | Health and Sleep | Scoop.it

Caffeine may keep you perky in the morning, but it can lead to insomnia, even if you drink coffee in the early afternoon. Some people are so sensitive that even a cup of coffee at lunch can lead to insomnia. Diet Coke and Pepsi can be a problem to those who are sensitive. Also, avoid energy drinks.
Caffeine is found in tea (including green tea), certain soft drinks, chocolate, cocoa, and of course coffee. Caffeine is also found in certain herbs such as guarana and kola nut. Many people do not realize that drinking green tea, at least more than two cups a day, may be a cause for their lack of rest at night.
Smokers experience withdrawal symptoms at night, and they have a harder time both falling asleep and waking up.
