How are you sleeping?
Do you pay much attention to your sleep? Do you have a routine?
I am very much open to suggestions, please give me your ‘sleep advice’.
I have a very strange relationship with sleep. It’s actually very much a love/hate relationship. I hate having to go to sleep but I also love sleeping. It’s very complicated.
I love sleeping because that’s when I get to dream and my dreams are pretty awesome, most of the time, when I haven’t been watching anything to do with zombies.
On the other hand, sleep robs me of my precious time. If I could function on no sleep I would get so much more done.
However, I am very much one of those people who wish they were back in bed before they’ve even got out of bed…
I am aware that I should create a sleep routine for myself, like a bedtime routine when you’re 5, instead of sitting at my PC until I’m tired, then going off to bed.
Although even then it never works like that, I decide I am tired and that it’s bedtime but it takes me at least half an hour to actually make it to bed.
There’s no doubt some washing that needs sorting, something needs tidying up, putting away, I need to check that the doors are locked (again), the windows are closed, I just need to check if that email has come through yet, what’s going on on Facebook…
For the love of God, woman go to bed!
Please tell me I’m not the only one who does this?
I am going to make a genuine effort to give myself a strict bedtime, with an actual routine so I can get some decent sleep…
My problem is that I don’t have cut-off point, I can still be found, most days at my PC still working at 10pm, much like now. I think once I set a time to ‘switch off’ I will naturally fall into a proper bedtime.
This is going to take some serious dedication and willpower. I, of course, will fail miserably for about a week, because my routine is most definitely not starting tonight, I’ve got loads more to do and I may be watching The Goonies on Netflix right now, because ‘why the hell not’.
