It is almost 530am,and I can't sleep to save my life. The kids will be up in 4hrs-so it isn't like I have a shot of sleeping later, so rather than stare at the wall-figured I'd ask- have u ever had one of those weeks that isn't quite normal-and life seams off balance overall?
I feel drained-not like myself this week.
I hope you can get sleep HC, try to sit down and think if something is bothering you, take your time, plus you need to sleep so that you can take care well of your baby,
sure u wuld feel drained...did u try meditation?..it works for me...
its going on 4 in the morning here and i cant sleep either ... i was asleep but now im awake ... it kinda sucks lol
Your telling me-i have so much on my mind-cant even start to sort things out... I want to escape to dreams-but my mind is being cruel
I have had many nights like this. Too many things on my mind at the same time that seem to be in competition for first priority.
It helps if I can hold onto one thought long enough to relax in it. Sleep soon follows. When my concience mind can not handle it all, give to my subconcience. Usualy awake with some awareness of how I "should" handle them.
I don't always do what I think is best. This is usually "MY" problem.
I got to sleep at around 4:30 last night UK time. hate it when my mind is working fast but my body can't keep up!
My house is silent-im not even at computer, I'm posting from my cell, so I don't wake anyone...
I fell asleep at midnight and have been up since 2:30 am. Don't know why I can't sleep, but I have alot to do today and I could have used a good nights sleep.
I am glad I am not the only one who has sleep problems, I have trouble stopping my brain too. It's only just after 9pm here though. I found out recently my personality type means I often lie awake planning. Seems I am in good company here!
It's tough not being able to sleep. I usually get a couple of hours a night. Sometime I will not sleep for 4 or 5 days. Eventually I will crash.
Take it easy today, and be careful what you say and do. Try not to take a nap during the day.
I hope you sleep better tonight.
Sweet dreams tonight.
That sucks, happens to me too. Your going to have one tired day, but if its anything like when I can't sleep, if you taeka long nap today, youll not sleep again tonight. Try ome yoga, stretchign and breathing exercises through out the day to calm you mind. Avoid drinkng alot of alcohol, but one glass of wine before bed and a hot bath can help. Also, Ive never treid it, but i have freinds who swear by melatonin.
maybe write in a journal all the thougths that are bugging you, and then you can read through it and decide which problem to focus on solving first, and let the rest of it go.
Happens to me often too - glad to know I'm not alone - brain going too fast, writing in my brain, but too tired the next day to do it!
I don't usually wake up too early, my problem is not being able to fall asleep. Tuesday night was one of those nights, I lay in bed writing a hub in my head! After I finished, I was able to sleep and in between appointments yesterday I got it typed out. Still tired today though lol
I'm joining the club here... I wish someone would invent an "off" switch for the brain. I do have some luck w/ meditation and breathing excercises once I'm in bed, but there are nights where nothing seems to cut it.
Sometimes I find that getting up and getting the thoughts OUT of my head and onto actual paper helps.
Get some rest my sleepy hubber friends!
I get the same too at times.
There are so many night owls here on HP's.
You need to either read a book, or concentrate on some peaceful, relaxing situation. Either something from your past, or imagine walking through a quiet meadow or forest, where all you can hear is the sound of nature.
Perhaps a look at my latest hub would help. Go and have a nature walk, why don'tcha.
I have suffered insomnia and it can be awful. I found that getting plenty of fresh air and sunshine and exercise helps. And creating a clam mind by concentrating on something repetative, a mantra or simple prayer.
