I climb into bed. Burro under my flannel sheets, under my comforter, under my weighted blanket. Ahhhhhhhhh. Fast asleep in minutes.
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?
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!
I roll over, open my eyes, and squint at my watch. Still too early! Why am I awake then?
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.
