I know the doctors say that getting enough sleep is really important, and if you can sleep, then just sleep. However, I always find myself not getting a good chunk of days where I get consistently 8-9 hours of solid sleep. It's been going on for a while now, and I've found that I have been slowly sort of adapting to it.106 posts and 64 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.
I take naps when I can, especially on my lunch hour at work, and because my brain knows it's only a nap, I fall i to dreams almost the second I actually fall asleep. I only get about a ten or fifteen minute power nap during those times, but I usually remember having two or three dreams.
When I get home, I try to take a longer nap and set my alarm, usually trying not to go over an hour, or an hour and a half if I'm struggling to get to sleep. If I take a full three or four hour nap, I will end up staying up late because Im rested, and then only getting three to four hours of sleep before I have to work again, where as I can usually get at least six to seven.
I've also been working on getting better rest when I do sleep. That new mattress we bought has been amazing, and I elevated the side where we rest our head, for my husband because he gets heartburn. Elevating it also seems to help me stretch my back out a little better at night. And one of the clinic doctors informed me that I can take ibuprofen much mkre often than I was, so my body doesn't ache so much. I also have lessoned a couple of things that were causing stress and started taking my medicine first thing in the morning, instead of waking up in the middle of the night to do it.
It's only been a few weeks since I really got this down, but I've noticed an over all improvement in my health and I haven't been having such trouble with whatever immune problem I have. I still get tired a lot and achy, but the ibuprofen helps, and coffee gives me a boost so long as I don't over do it and make my tolerance too high.
So what's some good habits (or bad) that you've developed for being less tired?
