In today’s 24/7-world, sleep is a hot commodity—no matter what your age. Older adults are especially vulnerable to a sleep deficit as medications, sleep patterns and physical and emotional ailments converge to make restful slumber more difficult to achieve. Yet, according to the National Institute on Aging, seniors need the same amount of sleep as all adults—about 7-9 hours each night.
“There’s a general notion that seniors need less sleep,” says Richard Shane, Ph.D., behavioral sleep specialist in Boulder, Colorado, and founder of Sleep Easily. “That’s not true. While research shows seniors do get less sleep, it’s not because they need less.”Read more.

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Daylight Saving Time, which begins this Sunday at 2 a.m., seems to take most of us by surprise each spring.
Our minds and bodies typically lag behind the clock for a couple days in the aftermath. But you can buck the trend this year and spring forward with zeal by using these tips.
Your Body Is Your Temple
Be careful what you put into your body in the hours preceding bedtime. WebMD and BetterSleep.org both suggest eating a light and simple dinner, and try to have it a little bit later each day in advance of the time change.Read more.
As a military spouse, there’s a lot of things we have to do alone during a deployment. We raise our kids alone, we celebrate milestones alone, and we learn to fall asleep alone. During my husband’s first deployment I struggled with sleep. I had a lot of anxiety and it was very hard to get to sleep easily.
Whether you have kids or not, bedtime is (or should be) a quiet time. You’re alone, your mind wanders, and then the worries start. It may be from the stress of the day, wondering if your husband is okay, or just worrying about being alone in the house at night with all the creaks and strange noises.
Don’t let this be you! There are plenty of things you can do to relax and help yourself fall asleep faster!
Relax at Bedtime & Get to Sleep Easily
1. Take a warm shower or bath.
I don’t know about you, but I love a good, hot shower! I hop in the shower sometimes when I am upset or just need to think or pray and I just let the water wash over me while I think, pray, or cry. The warm water is good for your body and helps you to wind down and relax. I suggest 10 minutes at the very least before bed.
2. Write your spouse a letter or write in a Journal.
If you’re worried about your spouse write them a letter or email with what you’re thinking or even just about your day or how much you love them. You can also write out your thoughts in a journal if you don’t want to worry your spouse with your fears or if you just need to get your thoughts out on paper. Need a few ideas to get you started? Check these out!
3. Read a book or the Bible.
I don’t know about you, but I always can get lost in a good book, especially a good fiction book! A book has the power to wrap your mind into a story so to take your mind off of your troubles and to make you feel. just for a few minutes like you are a part of the story. I know for me, even reading a few minutes of a story would help get my mind off something I was worried about. It helps me relax more and gives me something to think about before I drift off to sleep.
You can also read a passage of Scripture. I usually choose to read in Psalms or Proverbs because the verses in those books are very encouraging and help me to feel better. Look up verses on sleep, fear, or peace. I guarantee after a few minutes of reading and studying you will feel better about going to sleep alone!
4. Listen to music or soothing sounds.
Listening to music before bed can be very calming and relaxing. The type of music you choose is up to you, whether you prefer instrumental, meditative, or hymns and worship. You can also listen to soothing sounds such as falling rain or ocean waves.
Do you find yourself drifting off to sleep at work? Or do you lay awake at night tossing and turning?
