I have not had a good night’s sleep for awhile and this morning I woke at 3:30, laid in bed trying to go back to sleep with no luck. I decided I would read for a little bit and maybe I would be able to settle down and fall back to sleep. No luck. Why fight it? I got out of bed and did some exercising, fed the cat, put away the clean dishes and made my son his lunch.
I was hoping this would help me get some energy but it did not. At 6:30am I laid on the couch hoping to take a 20 minute nap. I could not sleep. I got up made myself some oatmeal and made my son his breakfast. I am still hoping for some energy or some sleep.
Does this happen to you? You have so many things going on in your life that your mind cannot slow down. Do you work through the day or go back to bed and try to fall asleep? I’m always trying to tell myself to keep going and work through it. If I stay awake all day then maybe by the night I will be so tired I will be able to sleep through the night. I’ll cross my fingers!
