Sleep has eluded me at times and has been good at times. In fact last night it rained and I slept well besides some weird dreams. But dreaming is good. I defiantly see a difference when I don’t go to bed at my normal time even for one night. It’s like it throws my whole week off!!! Yikes! So, it’s fitting a few weeks ago the Today Show did a segment on sleep. OK God I’m listening :)
First order of business is to really look at my sleeping patterns and implement new ways to get a better night’s sleep. I already do the usual we have all heard before of going to bed and waking up the same time each day… even on weekends…Ugh!, making sure my bedroom is just that a place to sleep not plan, write, read, or watch TV…this does not always work and lastly, try not to drink anything about 1-2 hours before bed so I get continuous sleep.
This week I will be doing three things to improve my sleep. How about you? Is sleep something you struggle with? Or is there another self-care issue you’re going to tackle first? What do you do to get a good night’s rest?
Sleep Tips This Week:
- Note when I go to bed, how long it takes me to fall asleep, what time I wake up, and how I feel in the morning
- Phone Free bedroom
Okay, that’s it for now. I’ll be back next week to let you know how it goes.
