Get some Zzzz’s with Hyland’s 5 Day Sleep Challenge #giveaway

Say it Rah-shay By Mar 12, 2015 27 Comments

Winter found me picking up a really bad habit. I would get home after my work day, do the evening routine, and then settle in for the night with my knitting and catching up on my shows. At first I had a regimen: work for an hour or so and then finish up for the night doing my decluttering routine and heading to bed. I took a few days off from work and there were a few days in which I had no commitments and had lazy days. I allowed myself to get off of my routine until my exception become my rule: I would find myself regularly binging American Dad episodes at 3AM and yawning, but refusing to go to bed.

Work was, well, work. Oh so sleepy and in a fog, drinking cup after cup of coffee to try to stay alert. I would go from task to task trying, unsuccessfully, in getting through the day only to repeat my behavior at night. One evening as I found myself drifting off on the couch, The Bee urge me to go to bed instead of staying up and I did. I had the best night’s sleep I had had in a while and I was rested and the next morning I was ready to seize the day, or at least had the skills to deal with screeching children playing Dora games.


So when I was asked share and participate in Hyland’s third-annual  Hyland’s 5-Day Sleep Challenge, I was like, “Yes! They are talking to me!”

The plan is comprised of five challenges, one each day, that will supercharge your health by showing you steps you can take to ensure you get a great night’s sleep, every night. Monday, March 16th through Friday, March 20th: Join us each day on the Hyland’s Facebook page to receive your challenge. What could you be doing to help yourself get those much needed zzz’s?

    My husband’s snoring keeps me awake!

  5. SHAUNIE says:

    Not being able to turn off electronics

  6. My biggest hurdle is my early wake up and realizing (every night) that it was my “bedtime” at least an hour ago!

  7. Jennifer Gaffney says:

    My biggest obstacle is shutting my brain off…saying its time to shut down & relax

  8. jenn says:

    I have such a love hate relationship with sleep. I love it and it hates me. If I’m not awake because I can’t shut my brain off of all the things I didn’t get done in the day that I need to do the next day, then it’s my body telling me it quits! Lol

  9. Sarah Donza-Hughes says:

    I think my kids in my bed are my biggest sleeping obstacles 😉

  10. Rachée Fagg says:

    YES! I've been unable to sleep for two weeks fretting about things!

  11. My teen is the opposite! All she wants to do is sleep.

  12. Annette says:

    My biggest obstacle is back pain; it causes me to toss all night.

  13. Steven Epstein says:

    getting up to use the bathroom lol

    1. Rachee says:

      I’ve noticed more night time bathroom breaks too! Then, of course, I have to putter around the house doing little tasks!

  14. Kelly McGrew says:

    my biggest challenge is turning my brain off and also stopping my fluid intake 2 hrs before bedtime

  15. Maeghyn Koehler says:

    disruptions, baby, puppy ferrets husband

    1. Rachee says:

      Puppy, ferrets AND a baby! Whew! I hope you get some rest!

  16. Britnee says:

    I just can’t seem to put the electronics down at a decent hour.

    1. Rachee says:

      I have taken to leaving them downstairs or just using them until they run out of power. It works better than I thought.

  17. My baby still wakes me up to eat at night.

  18. Lalo Jordan says:

    Frequent Waking children and a husband who snores terribly loud

  19. My biggest obstacle is that my 2 year old daughter just doesn’t like sleep and doesn’t require much! She has one or two nights a week she sleeps more than 6 hours.

  20. Marilyn Nawara says:

    Chronic back pain keeps me from a full nights sleep.

  21. Ashley says:

    My biggest obstacle is letting go the stress of the day to get relaxed to sleep

  22. I have always tried to get at least 8 hours/night. Sleep is golden. I can’t get enough.

  23. Em Mahr says:

    My biggest obstacle is turning of my brain and actually falling asleep. My husbands snoring doesn’t help!

Your turn! Tell it to Rah-shay!
