  • Tossing and Turning during sleep

    Been primal for about 6 months now. Everything is going excellent except i'm noticing or my girlfriend is noticing that im tossing and turning im my sleep a lot more especially the last month.

    I cant seep to lay asleep for more than 20minutes before changing position.

    Any ideas on adjustments I can make to regulate a more natural sleep...

    Isn't turning in our sleep quite natural? Unless you're waking up as a result of it, I don't really see a problem here. Does it seem to affect your sleep? Do you feel tired during the day as a result of this?

    Also, I'm wondering, have you noticed any increased dream activity during this time? "Vivid" or intense dreams can also make you toss and turn during the night. I know some people have reported increase in dreaming (or at least increase in remembering dream activity) when taking ZMA suppliments before bed. Are you taking any Magnesium?

      I used to have this same problem. Now I take a magnesium, calcium, and potassium suppliment right before I go to bed, and can sleep all night long.

        This plus, don't eat or drink alcohol at least 3-4 hours before sleep. Digestion is hard work for the body.
