Trouble Sleeping...

When I was in college, I went through three weeks where I had trouble sleeping. I watched movies to fall asleep especially Say Anything. My mom was always one to fall asleep with a TV on I think it was a way to have a nightlight and someone to read you to sleep. The light is not very bright and you are listening to someone else's story. My mom also was a reader she would read till she got tired then she would turn the tv on. Smiling. Needless to say some of these traits rubbed off on me. I have never been much of deep sleeper. I wake up if I have to pee or someone else in the house has to pee. And if I wake up and do too much or stay awake for more than a few many moments than I will be up for hours. I cannot fall asleep at the same time as my husband or it will take me hours to fall asleep. Seriously. We have been together for 15 years and we have fallen asleep at the same time in the same bed probably three times, most of this was because we worked opposite shifts I would like to think. Not just because I am OCD when I am trying to fall asleep, I remember lying in bed as a child for hours telling myself stories and thinking to myself. I digress-- that is the main problem. I digress from sleep.

I received two different sleep aids within a week of one another so it was a nice opportunity check out the plus and minuses of each.

The Somnis worked like this, take 1 or 2, fall asleep, wake up its morning. No groggy morning feel and it completely natural. I loved these and I will keep these in my house from now on. The main ingredients are Melatonin, GABA, and L-Tryptophan. I love when I do not wake up in the middle of the night.#hippiehappy The Somnis does this, Tylenol PM doesn't even guarantee me that.
Slumber Fit-- Not a deep deep sleep but a great invigorating sleep where about an hour before my alarm my brain woke up before my body did when that swirling whirl of 6:10am rings true. So when I awoke it was like I had already been up for an hour and I was much more alert and ready to face the day. I have taken this one a few times when I know I have to be up and moving extra early in the morning. #hippiehappy
