Let's improve sleep quality! What have you done that helped you sleep better?

RE: Let's improve sleep quality! What have you done that helped you sleep better?
I'm learning so much from everyone here.

One hidden message shows. We all accommodate our needs differently.

Some have guest rooms as I do because I move so much.
Some wear full face masks easily.
Others ike me wear a hat or a pad, a strap, and a nasal mask.

I love my covid hair. I've never had curly hair before. That's the headgear I wear at night tagging my much longer hair. Can't think of wearing a sleep mask too. But I sure as heck would if it helped me sleep.

I'm just a cpap user like you. I don't give medical advice. I hope to learn from you, and that's why I share here.

Several years ago I broke my left shoulder. It healed in less than 2 months.

Sleeping was an issue. Maybe there's a lesson there to help others...

First night I put a pillow against my left side. That prevented me from rolling over onto my left side. It was a small pillow A sobakwawa buck pillow.
I slept well every night after I bought the pillow.

Maybe this would work for some people that have tried a weighted blanket and found it uncomfortable.

This forum is the best.

As a young guy I bought a motorcycle. It was like a brotherhood. Still is...even though in one two month period I lost 5 friends. Killed in accidents.
Do the wrong thing and you pay...

Here with cpap we're cut loose by the system here once they sell a machine. It's like, "See ya. Not".

I appreciate everyone's help. I want all of us to succeed. Sharing your successes we all benefit.



That's why I started this thread.

Because little things make a difference.

As they say, the sleep docs / sleep techs / DMEs aren't as interested in your sleep as YOU are. You are the only one with skin in the game. It's your health at stake, not their health. And they still get paid on Friday.
