We all need a good night's sleep to wake up fresh and ready to take on the new day!  With heart disease, or any disease, getting that sleep is very important to maintain good health!  The following article gives you a look a few reminders that may actually get you back in a better sleep pattern.  Good Luck! tongue
 
"How to Sleep Well, Chemical Free"
"Indeed, the National Institutes of Health estimates that more than 50 million Americans suffer from insomnia. The best prescription for effective sleep, however, is also the most difficult: To re-establish good sleep habits."
 
Do you have problems sleeping?

Yes, I have an irregular sleep pattern.  Sometimes depression rears it's ugly head and enters into the picture and just some of the medications that are used to help treat these types of problems create new sleeping irregularities.  I find myself plenty of nights unable to sleep and end up staying up late...if I can sleep in that's not a problem, but plenty of days I'm up early.  Then there's the 'go to bed and close my eyes, and it seems like every hour or so, I'm looking at that clock again!'
 
Do you have problems sleeping, too?
 
Hugs, Teri tongue

Hehehe....ummmm....  yeah yeah yeah
 
I need to work on my sleep hygiene.  I fall asleep on the couch every night.  Hubby wakes me up at about midnight to go to bed.  (That just sounds funny.)  My sleep doc told me that, while poor sleep habits wouldn't cause my arrhythmia, it could certainly make it worse. 
 
I do try to use my CPAP machine every night.  I noticed a couple of problems with it though...the seal doesn't quite stay tight the whole night and I break out terribly where the mask and straps go!!!  Oh well...at least I'm not quite as tired when I wake up.  tongue
