I usually take 2 benadryl to help me sleep and I use earplugs and a sound machine for white noise, but I still wake frequently. I read somewhere a study that was done about the color of light and its affect on sleep and they found that red lights don't interfere with sleep but others - white, yellow, blue and green lights do. We switched our alarm clocks to red lights - maybe that might help a little for you, Jilly. We have other lights that we just cover with something before we go to bed at night. Sometimes the moon shines through a really high window in our bedroom and that can keep me awake. I don't mind at times, because it's actually relaxing to look at through the tree branches. I used to use an eye mask, but it wasn't comfortable. Instead I keep a small handtowel towel bunched by my face to block out additional light. Whatever works, right?
