Weird topic, huh?
This morning I woke up feeling refreshed and had the thought that I needed to share this simple fix for those who (like me) sleep poorly. When I became a mom in 1979 I stopped sleeping well through the night. I never got over it after my children were no longer young. Every noise wakes me and my sleep has been restless.
Somone I know had suggested earplugs and I bought some. Then I was reluctant to try them- for many months. I hate things in my ears, I have small ear canals. Well, my excuses seemed endless. Finally one night I was ready to try them (exhausted, darling husband snoring)... I had to roll the part that inserts into your ear canal until it was compressed to even get it in. It expanded to fit my canal. It took a couple of nights to get used to. But now I sleep soundly for hours at a time. Last night I slept 6 1/2 hours, which is a record for me. I am still trying to get up to the optimum (science backed) of 7 1/2 hours a night, but even with 6 I feel so much better!
Someone had said they may be helpful in a situation where you are close to others and hear strange noises (like camping for example). I have found that they make a huge difference even in my own home and bed. So I share this with you in case there is someone out there who also does not sleep well. This may help you, and it is cheap to try.
