I indulged myself a little over the long weekend and stayed up late a few times. This is pretty rare for me because I tend to just hit a wall and fall asleep. On Monday, I even slept in until after 9am!
I usually consider sleeping in until 6.30 or 7am a good sleep in, so after 9am is rare. I honestly can’t even tell you the last time I did that, because I just don’t remember.
Then came Monday night. I was overtired, had a lot on my mind, started stressing out and naturally, I couldn’t sleep! Which makes everything worse, as my brain then goes into overdrive, which also doesn’t help me sleep. The worst part is that I knew I was making myself more stressed and anxious, but I couldn’t think of anything to do about it.
In the end I managed to fall asleep – I’m not sure how or what time. I guess I just hit that wall!
Naturally, here we are on Tuesday morning and I didn’t set my alarm, pull out work clothes or organise breakfast & lunch last night. Sigh. But at least I slept. And at least I have another reminder why I try to keep myself in a routine. Still, I have that feeling right now that I wouldn’t mind another few hours of sleep.
How do you fall asleep when your brain is in overdrive?
