Sleep

Sometimes listening to people with calm, slowly delivered speech helps me relax and fall asleep. Last night I dozed off listening to Zac Poonen, an Indian preacher who has that kind delivery.
 
A couple of nights ago while trying to sleep, I felt tightness in my chest & my pulse racing. It seemed like a high level of anxiety. I repeat many times the Lord's prayer. Also I asked God to not leave my wife as a widow. A bad thought appeared in my brain - walking off a bridge and splat, into the concrete. A sure way to sleep. But that is an evil thought. Looks like my condition continues to deteriorate. I believe the devil is attacking me at my weak point. He's quite good at it.

That guy's got some wise nuggets. I've liked what I've heard/seen.

Have you tried fasting from coffee?

No. I drink a couple of cups in the morning but that's all. I've been talking with my spouse about some deep things which have been bothering me. The talks haven't been easy but sleep quality has improved. At least I'm sleeping 5-6 hours nightly.
 
I sleep very well, at least fall asleep. Normally very regular, 11pm to 7am roughly and I try to vary it very little, as deviation of more than an hour can mess me up. Diet - sleep - exercise is generally quite in balance with me.

Sometimes I mess up a night's sleep by eating too much of something or other in the evening. That has the effect that I fall asleep but wake up at like 4am or so. Thankfully hasn't happened in a while.

So I noticed a while ago that the supplement ZMA (zinc magnesium amino acid) before bed increases sleep quality, that is I would wake up in the morning feeling better.

Right now I'm visiting, so the food around is stuff that someone else got at the supermarket. Last night I downed some calories late at night I probably did not need and woke up this morning feeling supremely good, in particular better in the head than usual. I thought of what I ate and put it down to the walnuts.

Just had a small read about it here -
11. Helps You Get a Better Sleep
Walnuts contain an amino acid named tryptophan which helps in regulating the body’s clock. Our body uses this amino acid to produce serotonin and melatonin, both involved in regulating sleep.

Thus, having walnuts before bedtime may help improve your sleep quality and support better health, both physical and mental.
Also apparently good for the brain.

So there you go. I normally avoid buying nuts due to the calorie content but ate it again this evening deliberately may add it to the regular groceries.

I like a little walnuts with my ice cream.
