Sure, neighbor!
I got it at Whole Foods, los gatos. It is Guayaki brand Yerba Mate with cocoa and spices. You'll like it!

Good job, Jayneeo!  

Have you tried taking magnesium, especially in the p.m.?  It's relaxing and helps the body let go.  What about a little transdermal progesterone.  I sleep so much better during the days of the month when I am using the progesterone cream.  (I cycle with it as recommended after menopause - a few days in a row each month stopping the cream)



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

We tend to slip to the old default, when under times of stress.

My progesterone levels rose after using the OTC cream, so it definitely was not placebo.

I sleep poorly also.  I read a cure for insomnia at zenhabits http://zenhabits.net/sleep/.  I haven't tried it yet but it sounds like a maybe, at least I hope.

Jayneeo, do you have a lot on your mind? I know I don't sleep as well when I have thoughts going round and round in my head.

curiouser, link didn't work for me, but, thanks.
Drea, yeah, I've got certain emotional issues lately....
Lola, yeah I've got methyl B-12....I think it helps a bit.
Fact is, I may need more activity or ...exercize....just to wear me out.

begin by eliminating the coffee from your life!

Jayneeo, another good Bach Flower remedy for "too many thoughts" is White Chestnut, which is also in the Rescue Sleep.

Coffee definitely makes my anxiety worse. And it doesn't even give me the boost that most people feel. I just end up not being able to sleep.

I know it sounds silly, but if apple juice is on your plan, you could try that instead of coffee as well, to try to get a pick me up if you need it.
