I actually have a new year’s resolution this year. I’m usually not sure about resolutions you know. I don’t think I’ve ever actually had one. The thing is that they are always things that you don’t really have the willpower to do. Otherwise you would just do it anyway, instead of waiting until the new year to do it.
But this year I’ve decided to try and get my sleeping sorted out once and for all. Having problems sleeping scares me a bit. I know that sleep is very important, but I have always been a terrible sleeper. Apparently even when I was very young I used to stay awake until quite late.
Nowadays I find it difficult to fall asleep, which can mean two or three hours just lying in bed listening to the radio. But then when I do fall asleep I’m out for the count. Or when I wake up I don’t feel like getting out of bed. I might not get out of bed until about 2 or 3pm if I can help it. So my days are long and my nights are even longer, and the whole cycle starts a bit later every day. I have been known to go right the way round the clock so that I was back where I started.
And I’m kind of fed up with that sort of thing. I really want to try and improve my sleep. It’s probably not a good thing that my parents got me a coffee maker for my Christmas! But now it is my resolution, and I should really have a good go at sorting it out.
I was thinking of starting a separate blog to track my progress on this. But I’ve gone off the idea a little bit. Any thoughts?
