Day 89 - Just Tired.
Day 89 - Hey there sleepy head. Who else is just plain tired? I bet there are a couple of people reading this post that woke up this morning and said "I'm still tired." We all get worn down from emotions, responsibilities and expectations. Carting the kids around, managing the boss, keeping up with social media, connecting with friends, caring for a sick loved one, getting food into our bodies, going to school, managing a career and the list just keeps coming! Who has time to sleep for crying out loud? Of course we are always feel tired! I was exhausted just from tying that list.
Also, we should also talk about that once it has been GO, GO, GO we can't fall asleep. We just sit there wanting to fall asleep. Dreaming of sleep. Hoping for sleep. That too is exhausting.
However, sleep as we know, is incredibly important to our well being. I googled "National Sleep Foundation" for some tidbits on why we need sleep. My favorite fact is "Humans are the only animals that delay sleep." Oh is that right?! Well, forget it. I'm going to bed right now. Well, after I finish this post anyway, in three hours. There I go delaying sleep again!
Which brings me to the project today. Create a nightly routine that gets you to bed and helps you fall asleep fast then go get some sleep. Here is a list of "8 surprising tips and tricks" from "The Telegraph." I'm going to try the "4-7-8 breathing technique" and see if the sandman takes me away slumber town which sounds slightly creepy but I'll take it if it means I will fall asleep for 7 hours straight.
Let me know if you catch any zzz's and see you on the other side!
