I had the same problem this morning. I went to bed about 1:30am but woke up about 5:30am. I was totally awake and couldn't sleep no matter how I tried. So I got out of bed and curled onto the couch and started to do my word search puzzles. Then once my dog and African grey started to awake I took care of them and started to sweep the floors because my bird can be so messy. I then woke my hubby up for work made the coffee and we ate breakfast together. Now I'm mylotting for about five more minutes and then I'm going outside to do yard work. If it was nightime and I couldn't sleep I usually would just watch tv and hope that would get me tired. I hate it when I can't sleep when I know I should be sleeping. It just throws my clock out of whack.

Finding something to do to occupy your mind is the best thing.It does not happen to often normally I sleep so well, to well,had to start using my alarm clock ,set it up for about 8am .It is finding something quiet to do that does not wake my son up.

It's really uncomfortable because of the hot days. I don't wake up early but it's difficult for me to sleep early at night. So usually, I like to walk in the street. Because it's not only cooler than daytime but also it's benifit for my body.:)

Sleeping in the heat is difficult ,it is normally quite chilly in England but we have had it quite hot for a few days.just not used to the heat.I don't suppose it will last long and we will be chilly again soon.

Now a days, since our children take time at night to sleep, we cannot wake up too early. Even when we wake up early, we are busy in getting ready, or washing clothes, or hanging them, or arranging things in house.

It is a 24 hour job with kids ,if you cannot get them to sleep at night it is really difficult fitting in all those chores especially if you are tired yourself.Mine have all grown up now youngest 18 nearly 19.He brings me a cuppa tea bless him.Tables have turned.Makes a nice change to have a helpful son.

If I can't roll over and go back to sleep, I will get up and fire up the ol' computer... and wait for the brain fog to roll in, at which time I'll lie down on the couch and get the rest of my sleep.

In the childhood my grandparents use to advice,"early to bed and early to rise is a healthy and wise." It is 100% correct. We feel fresh after waking up early. We get more time to devote for work.On the other side after waking up late, you feel a little laziness which doesn't allow you to work efficiently.

I always wake up early. If I am at home, I would start myLot discussion first thing in the morning. Then after an hour, I would do the household chores. But here in my place of assignment, I would have to drink coffee and some cereals then I have to take a bath and prepare to go to the office.

You must be worn out before you get to work.

I work at night and when I return my home in the morning I usually sleep. Sometimes I am not tired and I don't feel like going to bed. Today is one of those days so I decided to switch on my computer and spend some time on Mylot instead. If I get tired while I am writing I will leave the computer and sleep some hours, but right now I don't feel tired at all. My computer is usually my first choice when I can't sleep but sometimes I decide to stay in bed and read for some hours instead of using the computer.

Going on the computer will make it more difficult to sleep my doctor told me that.It activates the brain to much,stick to reading or watching the tv or you will have terrible time sleeping.

Sleeping and waking up is related to how much you enjoy your work.It is more like a cycle.The more you are involved in the day's activities the more pleasant will be your sleep,and a good sleep will get you refreshed for the next day's work.And waking up early is a habit you need to cultivate.

I did get a lot done and had a nap this afternoon.I normally get up around 8am which suits me fine.You are right should be more busy during the day.

that's a good start, i would say. there are many things we can do while we are up. they are just waiting to be done. the early we start, the early we will accomplish those tasks. in the case of mylot, the early we log in, the more earnings we will make.
