Last night, for the first time in a VERY long time, I slept. ALL NIGHT. It was amazing. I woke this morning feeling like a different person.
Ironically, Dr. Oz said on his show yesterday that if you’re waking more than ONCE A WEEK and if it takes longer than 30 minutes to fall asleep a night, then more than likely stress is a factor and it’s a real problem.
Well, thanks for the advice, Doc. But I’m pretty sure I knew that waking every hour on the hour for at least 2 years was stress related. Especially when I used to sleep like the dead. (not the undead. I’m not a real fan of coffins…)
Life is changing and change is good…but it can be so stressful sometimes. I have always embraced change–I’ve never been one to let life happen to me. But these past couple of years I’ve done a lot of waiting and that really isn’t something I do well. I’m pretty impatient. I like action. And my life has been on hold and that has affected every corner of being. I haven’t slept well, my health has taken a few hits, my motivation has been waning, and even reading and writing hasn’t been fun.
That’s changing now. I’m happy again. I’m sleeping again. And as of today, I’m writing again.
Now if I could just win that lottery…
