Sleep

10 pm

I climb into bed.  Burro under my flannel sheets, under my comforter, under my weighted blanket.  Ahhhhhhhhh.  Fast asleep in minutes.

11:32 pm

I roll over, open my eyes, squint at my watch to see how much longer I have before my alarm.  Wow!  I still have a lot of time!  Wonder why I woke up?

1:37

I roll over, open my eyes, and squint at my watch.  It must be very close to alarm time now.  I feel rested and ready for the day… Nope!  4 more hours.  Maybe I’ll slice about this sleep pattern someday.  Sweet!  

4:45

I roll over, open my eyes, and squint at my watch.  Still too early!  Why am I awake then? 

5:27

Beep!  Beep!  Beep!  Not Now!  My alarm can’t be going off this soon!

 

This is a common frustrating pattern for me.  I wonder why I wake up so often.  I wonder how refreshed I’d feel without so many interruptions.  I wonder if this pattern can be broken.

  1. Ha! We are having very similar nights. I don’t understand it either. How can I feel so refreshed in the 12:00 hour and then so exhausted in the 6:00 hour?
    Your timeline chunks really brought me in. I loved this post! Cheers to better rest!
