I've been getting back to my morning swim routine again. It can be so hard to drag myself to the pool at 5:30 am, but I always leave the pool feeling like a million dollars.
I'm starting to feel revived after my summer of events, finally. Swimming is feeling better, and running is feeling better.
Who has suggestions for improving sleep? I've been cutting caffeine, and I'm taking a supplement that seems to help that has a little melatonin (3 mg I think) and some other stuff like valerian root, and it seems to help me get to sleep faster. I still often wake up an hour or two early, though. Partly that's my cat wanting to start the day to play and eat, but it isn't all him.
I'm trying to be better about using my phone in bed with some success. Should I be setting an alarm 30-60 minutes before bed and turning off all screens?
