weird habits confessional
Sometimes (like this morning) I wake up between four and five, feeling very hot, very awake, with my mind racing. I have never been a great sleeper, but this pattern emerged around 2007 after major surgery. Looks like it might be here to stay.
So... rather than lying awake worrying about getting back to sleep to clock up a few more hours..... I have found a formula that works.
I get up, unload the dishwasher, do a few jobs in the kitchen and the lounge (which are apart from the bedrooms), make myself a cup of tea and breakfast, watch the tv or do a bit of blogging. After an hour I have cooled down, my mind has cooled down, and I start feeling sleepy again. I then go back to bed for a couple of hours and sleep like a log! It works really well when I don't have to get up too early for appointments or work commitments....in fact... on days like today. So - bye for now..... zzzz
What is your weirdest habit?
