Please choose only one option in first 5: the one you think you do the most frequently
Please choose between 6-7, or you can leave them if you think you sleep on time
Please click the appropriate options in 8-9-10

You don't have to leave a comment

It's not much scientific; I'd rather do it with more options including questions for different blood types but it's enough to make me curious.

Thanks

Hmmm, me too... Sorry, being it allowed me to check multiple choices I did. Hope it doesn't invalidate your survey




If you keep doing what you've always done, and you keep getting what you've aways got, perhaps it's time for a change...

SWAMI O+ Gatherer, Healing from Fibromyalgia

I ALWAYS wake up needing to go to the toilet! I always have, since I stopped wetting the bed at age 7. If the bathroom is occupied, I'd rather stay in bed a few more minutes than get up and not be able to pee immediately.

My kids aren't like this. It's always amazed me, how they can wake up and start watching TV or playing on the computer and 'forget" to pee.

I usuallly sleep late, or wake up on time with difficulty. Since having kids I've been a lot better about getting up when needed and NOT hitting the snooze button 5 times before getting out of bed, but naturally my body is slow with transitions- it's hard for me to fall asleep and hard for me to wake up.

I'm trying to both eat and live according to Dr. D's recomendations, but I'm certainly not perfect. I've been in dietary limbo the past couple of weeks, trying to decide between BTD and GTD, and eating a whole lot of "sometimes foods" over the holidays, but for the most part I follow the diet. The lifestyle part is hard for me- Os are supposed to exercise a lot, but I have fibromyalgia and can't do strenuous exercises right now. I'm definitely doing my best to exercise as much as I'm able to, but it's still far less than Dr. D. recomends for my type.

I interpreted that to mean "I eat right" meaning I follow one of Dr. D's dietary plans (BTD, GTD, or SWAMI) and "I live right" to mean following Dr. D's other lifestyle tips, such as exercise type and frequency.

sorry voted before I read

Any way during summer I wake with an urge to pee
right now I wake up With a need to stay in bed
It has to do with me getting a bit too late to bed ( work evenings) and have to get up early with my daughter.
However in a months time or so Ill wake up energized again.

Generally have to pee RIGHT NOW when I wake up

I sleep about six-seven hours or so, then I'm up and ready to face the day. A brief nap later in the afternoon works out well. I'm usually in bed by 9 and up by 4. I love the early morning hours--the house is quiet and I can spend an hour or two writing in the silence, watching the sun rise. Sleeping in makes me tired and cranky, so I don't do it unless I'm sick or really hurting.

Yes, you are right Isa. For the last few years menopause (and work-related stress) has really disrupted my sleep cycles and my adrenals have suffered to some extent, but there doesn't seem to be any way around this problem at the moment.

I usually wake up around 1 a.m. and it takes me a while to fall back asleep. I used to turn on the light and read, but that just made things worse. So now I just lie in bed and rest until sleep comes back. That has helped quite a bit with fatigue. Adrenal stress has gone down to some degree too, I think.

I do take valerian and on occasion, melatonin. Both are very helpful in getting me to sleep and helping me go back to sleep when I wake up in the night. Melatonin in particular always helps me get more restorative sleep, but I try not to take it too much so that my body stops producing it.

As long as I get to bed early, I feel good. Staying up much past 9 makes me way too tired in the morning.

At the moment, no. My knees have been giving me a lot of trouble since last fall and I got out of the habit of exercising--very foolish. I'm easing back into it with some low-impact yoga postures and isometric exercises. I also just bought a 'crunchless abs' DVD, we'll see how that works out. I've used Linda LaRue's routines before and she's great at getting you moving even when you're not very mobile.

Usually the urge to pee is what wakes me up.  On the weekends I go back to sleep.  On work days, I hit the snooze alarm a couple of times before running to the potty. What foods I eat are according to my Swami.  I didnt choose live because I exercise to my own routine & eat 1 portion or serving of something at a time.  The # of servings I eat per day may not match.
