Last week I struggled to drop off to sleep which I put down to being off from work but that has rolled into this week. Monday night I got about three hours sleep, last night was about four hours. Maybe tonight I’ll get five hours……
I’m one of those people that will lay in the dark for ages before I fall into sleep, recently its been hours that I’ve been laying in the darkness. I don’t know if its because I’m too tired, or not tired enough. I thought it may be because I’ve got things on my mind, but there’s nothing that is really worrying me, nothing out of the normal everyday trials of life that is.
Yes I’ve tried counting sheep, although I got bored so I started counting electronic sheep. It didn’t work.
What’s next? I’m hoping this is just a passing phase. I am pretty sure that I have a general issue with sleeping. It’s rare that I am not struggling somewhere along the way. I’ve always been one to lay in bed for a while before falling asleep, but normally I do drop off. But then I may have a very unsettled nights sleep. I’ve woken up at the opposite end of the bed to that I started and even with my head between my bed and a unit at the end of my bed. Thinking about it I’m lucky I’ve not fallen out of bed
Other nights I will wake up three or four times during the night. Thankfully most of these times I drop back off quickly.
If anyone’s got any tips about getting a better nights sleep I’d love to hear them 🙂 I’m not really feeling the effects of the lack of sleep but it would be nice to get past this.
