So tired…

bed with eyes

I have not been sleeping well lately. I’m being good and going to bed at a reasonable hour, turning off the light and going to sleep, but even if I don’t toss and turn before I drift off, I end up waking up three or four times a night. Quite simply, I am tired of not sleeping.

I don’t really know what to do about it and I have cycles of this and it tends to go away in a few days. This particular stretch of bad sleep is already on its third week however, and I’m ready to see it go away. I’m now cutting down on my caffeine and don’t eat right before bed.

I need to get some exercise in my life and unfortunately I like to put this one off. During the summer, it is relatively easy to stay active (as long as my bike is in working order). During the winter, I have a much harder time getting the motivation to do it though. That said, I think I might join a gym again and see if it carries me through.

Unfortunately, the side effect of being this tired is I am not happy with my writing. I did work a little on Jacoby Figurine tonight, but I am skeptical if I did well by my plan. I’ll reread it tomorrow and see how it goes, but right now I’m ready to toss out tonight’s work. I did get through another 3 or 4 pages though, so I’m not disappointed by that at least. Still, if I am going to finish the ending by the weekend, I’m going to have to step up my efforts for the remainder of the week.

Okay – I’m done. Sleep now. Promise me that sleep will come…

    You hit the nail on the head about exercising. If you get into a regular routine, you’ll sleep much better.

      Exactly… luckily there is a bit of snow falling right now, so this is a convenient excuse not to go out…

      I did shovel the driveway – I am saying that counts.
