To sleep, perchance to dream
I have sleep problems; this is no where near the sleep issues that parents of a young child have, those people have all the respect I could ever give them. No, my problems are that I don’t sleep past 05:30 in the morning before then dozing uncomfortably till 08:00. This wouldn’t be so bad if I could sleep properly any time before about midnight each night; I long for the ability to sleep a full 8 hours and feel refreshed. Again I would like to reiterate – parents of young children have it a million times hard off than me, this is just me whinging for no reason other than to get ideas on how to sleep.
Over the past few months I’ve struggled to sleep with me regularly waking through the night as I can’t get comfortable. Some nights I’ve even laid in bed thinking ‘what the hell? Why can’t my body be comfortable laying in bed on its side?’ before tossing and turning for a good 45 minutes. Now I’m certain that a lot of the sleepless nights I have is the terrible nightmare of being awake when really sleeping; as Kate would say: ‘That’s just terrible’.
Can anyone, anyone at all please suggest some good ideas as to how to get a good night sleep? I’ve changed my mattress, altered my pillows, opened a window, changed the side I’m sleeping on and none of them have worked.
Well for once this turned out to be a really short post! Check back for tomorrows and I really am expecting ideas for sleep!
