Hello, everyone! How are you all doing? Well, I hope! I’m doing fine, counting the days until the holidays so I can get some rest – which includes a lot of sleeping, hopefully.
Sleep is, and has always been, elusive to me. I do my best to go to bed early-ish, at around ten. Regardless, I rarely manage to fall asleep before 1 am. Why? Who knows?
I usually keep a nightly ritual in order to try and relax. I take a shower. Drink some water. Put some soothing sounds (such as rain) on. Close my eyes, find a comfortable position, and… don’t sleep until my brain is too exhausted to keep me awake. And then I wake up as soon as the sun rises, and can’t quite fall asleep again, which gives me about four hours of solid sleep. Yes, it’s a lot of fun.
I have tried pretty much everything – including medication -, but my sleeping pattern is basically this. Unless I have the time to sleep during the day. Then I’ll sleep like a baby. So, I guess what I’m asking is: how the heck do you sleep at night? Is there a magic formula?
Seriously, though, do you all sleep well at night? Or are you night owls too? I’m curious!
See you on the next!
