When you conduct your test is important, though. Create a rule set for yourself and follow it. For example, you can establish that you’ll execute your test every time you: go to the bathroom, have a glass of water, see an attractive person, get up from your desk, talk to a certain person, etc. If you can, try to incorporate the dreams you’ve been having within your rule set. For example, if you’ve been having dreams that poke at your social anxiety, make uncomfortable social situations one of your triggers for a test. Or if you’re afraid of heights and you have dreams about that, do a test every time you feel that fear.
This is exactly what I have been looking for! My Great-Grandmothers where 1950s house wives and I remember as a kid thinking that they kept their homes so perfectly! I have struggled to maintain a neat and tidy home, its clean but messy (last night I spent my New Years Eve playing catch up again! I finally fell into bed at 3am after 5 house of cleaning and still the house wasn’t done!)
With 2 little boys I knew I needed to change how I have been doing things (cuz clearly it wasn’t working!) and felt like I should “go back to the basics” and do things how my Great-Grandmothers did. Thank you so much for your blog! It is going to help me get my house back to order this New Year!
Smith said there are plenty of other reasons why elders of both genders have night time urination problems. A common issue is edema, or swelling in the legs. When people lie down, that fluid dissipates and eventually is expelled as urine. Diabetes can make people urinate more often. People who are waking frequently may go to the bathroom to prevent a trip later on. The chemical signals in young people greatly diminish urine production at night. Those signals weaken as we age, so older people are producing more urine while also trying to sleep.
