Morning Brain Reset

I’m not sure I recognize the symptoms of being tired. Sure, I recognize sleepiness, but tiredness, and the symptoms like crabbiness and brain malfunction (having to reread something two or three times to get the message for example), I don’t attribute to you being tired. I think more along the lines that it’s the end of the world.

I don’t really think it’s the end of the world, but I don’t consider that it’s a temporary condition cured by a night of good relaxing sleep. At which I am, as you know, an expert.. Ha!

Even if I’m not a good sleeper, my brain seems to reset overnight and I feel better in the morning once I get up and get going.

that’s my sleep talk for today, happy hump day!

heavier-than-air toxic gas

Last night I was asleep, dreaming about why I couldn’t sleep. I deduced there must be a toxic, heavier-than-air gas in the area that I was sleeping. As I move around, I stir it up, sometimes inhaling it, sometimes not, sometimes mixing it with good air. I decided I was sleeping in some type of bowl and when I woke up I would have to use a fan to blow all the heavier-than-air toxic gas out of the bowl. Then I’d sleep well.

Overall, I woke up thinking I slept well. And according to my tracker, it was one of my best night’s sleep ever. Dreaming about not sleeping was just a dream

Have a wonderful day!

I Think I’m Awake

But I’m Not

Last night, I was lying in bed. I thought I was awake, but part of me knew that I wasn’t. I was trying to do simple three count in three count out breathing and couldn’t do it. It was very difficult. I was trying to NOT think about Daisy and the dog across the street but I could not.

I often wonder why I think I’m awake all night but my sleep monitor shows me as being asleep. It’s because even though I’m asleep, I’m aware. I cannot fully control my thoughts in this state. Counting 1 2 3 was very difficult and I kept making mistakes. Breathing was difficult along with the count. It is a bizarre sensation/state of mind.

and now I’m off to work. I think it’s payday but it might be tomorrow

Have a great day!

Quiet Rainy Weekend

It was a very quiet weekend . Saturday afternoon was a workshop on meditative breathing and yoga pose alignment. It was quite interesting and seemed too short

During class, I felt like I had a feather in my throat. A tickley cough. By evening, it was a full blown sore throat. I went to bed before 7 on Saturday night and got up after 7 on Sunday. Sunday, it seemed to be a cold. Hopefully now I’m on te upswing from my first Cold in years

Im exhausted after a long, sleepless night.

Ba humbug

Quarter Till Five

I set my alarm to go off at 4:45. It’s been seeming like I’m a little short on those in the week-mornings, so I’m getting up earlier. This morning, I was laying in bed, certain I had made a mistake, that the alarm wasn’t going to go off at all, but I refused to look at the clock. Finally it did go off and here I am

Above are some pre sunrise pics from this.morning. it was very red.

Have a wonderful Wednesday (seems like this is the second Wednesday this week, doesn’t it?)

Ciao!

Best Sleep In Years

Last night I slept good for the first time in years. I didn’t even get up once and usually I get up half a dozen or a dozen times. I still only got a fair sleep score but a new I slept good when I woke up 5 minutes before the alarm. Hope I can do it again!

have a great day

Early Bird VS Night Owl

about 4 minutes

After watching the video above, I wonder how my cicadian system is. I have a pretty regular schedule, and I get quite a bit of sun I’d say.

I go to bed at 9:30:or 10 and wake up a little after midnight. I’m pretty happy in life most of the time, I have a lot to be grateful for and I am, but between midnight and 5, when I’m insomniaizing, I’m very miserable. I’ve learned not to pay too much attention to it, because I know it’s a temporary state.

Getting a good night’s sleep is something that has eluded me for years. I would love to go to sleep at 10, and not wake up till 6. I can’t take any sleep aids, they all say “do not take if you have glaucoma”. (I have glaucoma)

Many people my age seem to have a difficult time sleeping it seems like.

have a wonderful day!

Cotton Bedsheets

I’ve been a world class insomniac for a few years now. I lay in bed thinking “this is incredibly uncomfortable*, but at the same time, unable to pinpoint any discomfort.

After a while, I realized I was burning up and freezing at the same time. I was hot, and clammy with sweat, but the sweat felt like a thin layer of ice over my whole body. Under a sheet, melting hot, no sheet, icy freezingness.

It occurred to me to check my sheets. I thought all sheets (except silk) were 100% cotton. No, mine were part plastic, some material I can’t remember the name of now. So I got some 100% cotton sheets, and it seems to make a difference. No more frozen fire sensation. Of course, we’re still in the testing phase.

Now if I could just get these dawgs to let me sleep!

Happy Hump Day!

2 in a row!

Below is this mornings sunrise, because the pic makes the post!

I slept good again last night, 2wo in a row. Can it be as simple as not laying on my back? Will it last? Below is the sleep tracking from my watch, I barely woke up at all, usually I’m up a dozen times or two.

I’m excited, going to work today,. (That’s quite possibly the most insane sentence ever typed on this blog) I don’t know why that’s exciting. Hopefully I can swim at lunch, got a lady cleaning the apartment and she’s doing a really good job She started yesterday and will finish today.

Things are looking good! Have a great day!
