Guess what the weather forecast is for tomorrow? Ice pellets and snow! Gahhh! This spring, winter spring thing we are having is getting to me. I don’t like the spring, that is when my sleep patterns get all messed up. That is when I am constantly too cold then too hot. I need a good sleep and I am tired of going to bed cold and waking up in the middle of the night in a pool of sweat or waking up frozen after falling asleep comfortable. I say STOP! I like having different weather as much as the next guy but I don’t want to visit all four seasons in a single week.
So you envy those nutty people that workout in the morning and arrive at work all chipper and ready to go. Well I am one of those people most of the time. Sometimes I lose my morning mojo, but I am determined to get it back. It just makes everything else easier!! I’m working on getting myself to the pool for 5AM from now on. I did it in the past with great success and even now when I do accomplish it I feel much better and have less pain from my injuries. It seems I have lost some of my early morning mojo. I Wake up on time but I don’t get up! I bargain and make promises to myself and change my mind.
Bet this title got your attention. I wonder if I can get my site on a banned list this way. Todays topic is sleep. Keep reading long enough and I will get to the hot tub. I have had trouble sleeping for more than 30 years. What do I do about it? Well for years I did nothing. I generally felt OK during the day with 4 to 6 hours sleep so I didn’t worry about it. Generally I fall asleep at my usual time just fine and wake up 2 to 3 hours later to go to the bathroom. This is when the problem begins. I am wide awake. I usually read for 2 to 3 hours and then sleep lightly for another 2 hours. Again I am wide awake and running out of time to get more sleep. If it is the weekend I can read for a few hours and take another 1 hour nap. If it is a weekday there is no more sleep.
