Once again, I woke up entirely too late today.
Once again, upon waking, I realize how much of the day I’ve wasted in sleeping and dreaming.
There went my self-esteem, right out the window. I had Plans for today. Glorious Plans! Like…that one thing where I…do….stuff….
Ok, so maybe I didn’t have any plans, but I still felt down on myself for over-sleeping yet again.
It’s my own fault, I know. If I would take the melatonin at a decent hour (i. e., around 9 PM), then I would be able to get to sleep at a decent hour. I would wake up refreshed and ready for the day around 6:30 AM, ready to help my significant other out the door. And then stay awake for the rest of the day and do stuff!
Even before I was fired, sleep was a huge problem. You would think that having a regular job with a regular schedule would help me actually go to bed and sleep at a decent time.
I don’t know what it is, but the daytime just seems like it was meant for sleeping to me, and the night time for staying up. Without that natural sleep-aid, I just can’t seem to fall asleep when I need to.
I probably need to exercise. One website I read said that in order to have a healthy life & sleep schedule, one needs to do 30 minutes of aerobic exercise four times a week.
Again, that sounds simple, especially since I’m in between careers right now. But, it’s not. And I don’t know why.
All I know right now is this: My cup of Earl Grey is really good, even if it did need three packets of Equal in order to taste right.
