Wednesdays Question

questionIt’s Wednesday so that means it’s question time. It’s time to ponder and then answer just one question. Okay, you can add all you want as a reason for your answer too. We’d all like that.

So here’s this weeks question: Is it easy for you to fall asleep and stay asleep all night?

Now that I’m retired I don’t have any problem falling asleep and staying asleep for a good 8 hours. When I was still working and doing lots of shift work I had a hard time. My body clock just never seemed to work right. I could be exhausted after working graveyard and only sleep for a few hours. When it was time to shower and go back to work the next night I was ready to sleep. Retirement rocks.

    Funny you should ask….it's 5:30 and I've been up an hour because I got up to pee and couldn't fall back asleep. Sleep is something I struggle with, both staying asleep and falling asleep.

    I get to sleep quick and before married, always slept all through the night. Since marriage, my hubby wakes me up when he bounces the bed getting up or turning over, taking my covers and the cat comes to join me so have to pet her then. The good thing is, I get back to sleep quickly. Sweet dreams!

    I have no trouble falling asleep. I've gotten better about staying asleep. However, regardless of how late I am up, I will always wake up between 5:30 and 6:30. I hate not being able to sleep in.

    I fall asleep right away and my bladder gets me up a couple of times during the night but I usually go right back to sleep. Sandee, you have a great day. Smoke and Joe came home last night.

    It takes me some time to eventually fall asleep. Due to my prostrate problem, up at least 3 or 4 time in the night but here I'm able to quickly fall back to sleep. The best sleep I get is when I'm on my cruise. It must be the rocking of the water because I never have any problem falling asleep. I guess that means I'll be sleeping well in two weeks. Cruise time.
    See ya. Have a great Wednesday Sandee.

    Mom has to say yes to both. It's always been that way for her and remains; though, she is retired as well. For us kitties, not as hard if we stay on Dad's side of the bed. He can sleep for ten hours straight…no problem. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    As Russell says " One can never retire too early" We are busier than ever…don't know how we would fit in work! As for sleeping….I am alight sleeper and once awake find it hard to go back to sleep after 6am….I get about 6-8 hours…but never feel sleepy until we watch tv at night…then it can be lights out for me! Cheers!

    I was like you when I used to do night shift Sandee, just couldn't sleep much during the day. 'Cos I get up at 4:30am each weekday for work now since being on morning shift I get to sleep fairly easily. I often wake up during the night though to go to the loo then have trouble going back to sleep

    Willie don't sleep very well. Willy bought fitbit exercise bracelet to measure sleep..Willy discovered with bracelet that he don't sleep very good and also that he is a lazy butt. ..It is amazing what you can find out by spending $100.

    It's always easy for me to fall asleep when i first go to bed, and i usually fall right back to sleep after my one trip to the loo in the middle of the night. However, if you wake me up but good, it will take me a long time to get back to sleep.

  12. cube says:

    I fall asleep easily, but often wake up several times in the middle of the night. I don't waste time trying to get back to sleep when it happens, so I watch TV, read or write until I get drowsy again. Unfortunately, when my husband wakes up early most mornings, I'm usually so sleep-deprived that I need an intravenous coffee drip to wake up. He's always been a deeper sleeper… I tease him about falling asleep standing up.

    Again, yes and no. I fall asleep pretty quickly, but I don't often stay asleep all night. It is not unusual for me to wake up a couple of times between 4 and 6 a.m. Anytime I wake up after 5:30, I might as well get out of bed and start my day. I can always take an early afternoon nap. Retirement is great that way. 5-p

    I fall asleep quickly because I'm so tired but I never sleep through the night usually because of a floofy white cat. Lately she wants under the covers so licks my face for me to lift them up – this happens several times a night. Good thing she's cute! Once awake I think of everything I need to do so can't fall back to sleep until soon before the alarm goes off at 5am.

    Hope you're enjoying sunshine Sandee! We're socked in with thick fog. 🙁 Scritches to Little Bit!

    Nice question, Sandee. h-( I very seldom sleep a whole eight hours without waking up. When I do I always can use the bathroom too. That way I might sleep until eight or later (midnight, plus or minus, is my bedtime).
    My wake up time is usually four or five hours, sometimes it is only after three hours sleep. I have no idea what wakes me up. I don't mind it. Sleep tight tonight. 😀

    That is an interesting question. I have of course had many nights where I could not turn off my brain… stressful times of my life. But that goes for anybody you ask. Generally, I sleep really well because I work so hard all day and then go to the gym. Gym nights are major snooze nights. Woo hoo!
