Trick Your Mind To Get Up And Go

Cool Outside

Just one reason of many to stay in bed

I don't want to move

I feel so comfortable

There are lots of things I could be doing

Today is my day off

I want to just sleep the day away

Yesterday at work was quiet

I shouldn't be that tired

Our home is silent and peaceful

I move around an attempt to get up

Then decide to go back to bed

I carefully ignore any thought in my mind

That takes me away from such a wonderful feeling

The phone rings and I make no attempt to answer it

Earlier the time read 8:30

Now it quarter to twelve

I would of eaten breakfast already and starting lunch

I decide one more time

To drop my head deep into my soft pillow

Once again I stir

I'm still not awake

The time is almost two

It's a struggle to eat

My eyes barely open

I get dressed and make the bed

Tempting as it may be

I had enough sleep for one day

I'm not sick

But I was tired

Maybe emotionally exhausted

I wonder is there such a thing ?

I make my way to the standing position

Where I will stay

Having a yogurt and a one a daily vitamin

All is still

Outside my door is airy

The same feeling right before rain

The sky is blue and I can hear a few birds chirping softly

You can barely hear them

As if not to wake me

My cat keep circling inbetween my legs

Now right smack in my face

She's not hungry

There is plenty of food in her dish

I think she was trying to motivate me

Say hey

Lets get moving

On with our day

Hey, Dream On. I know the feeling. Sometimes it is hard to get motivated to get out of bed, but I have four cats and three dogs..so imagine what you go through and multiply that by seven. At 7.00am and 4.00pm precisely they let me know it is feed time. In the morning they do not let up until I get up :)

Jodah I don't think you realized it but you have created the perfect personal wake up service. You are never late for an appointment even if you try to stay in bed. (Lol) I love animals and for awhile we had two cats. One an outdoor and one an indoor. Both became family but didn't adjust to well. So we had to keep them apart. It was a struggle and it made my days and nights crazy. We loved them both dearly and both have passed away since. Now our latest cat is from a neighbor one of seven. I told my wife we shouldn't split up the family. She said really would you like them all. I said one kitten will be just fine. The other kittens ended up in different families or the pound. It is so sad when people have pets they can't take care of. I love as big as your family is to see all of them in one sweet loving family. Thank you for reading and I love your contribution to my hub. It is 3:31 A.M. our cat couldn't sleep so she starts digging her claws in the side of our bed. I get up to give her company and found your comment and she curls up in a ball next to me and goes fast asleep. You have to love our pets. They are smarter than we know and I still can't figure mine out. I think I may be up before you this morning. Good morning and a wonderful top of the morning to you.

The autumn rains have arrived and my cat Sid has moved back into the warm bedroom. As usual he has found a new spot to sleep which is inconvenient to me because I had to remove stuff from the top of the shelves so he could accommodate himself but there he is sleeping and has been sleeping for most of this rainy and cool day.

I just commented on another hub of yours about sleep. I sympathize with those who have issues with it, but highly recommend and hope for them all to develop a positive personal relationship with sleep!

Learn from that cat. It's really a kind of faith at work, believing you don't need to fight it and can have it as a 'right' of life. And if you wake up earlier -OK - that's good when it happens. It doesn't mean you need to dread waking up early from then on.

Let your body tell itself what it needs and go for it, like that kitty does. Actually we do have a natural sleep cycle and can use it when we know we can!

Thankfully, people need fewer hours sleep than cats - since we don't have owners to provide for all our needs haha.

Gypsy Rose I think Sid and Charlotte have a secret pact where they text each other what their next plan is and have us buffaloed. Charlotte is quietly laying by the slider in the kitchen after causing an hour of non stop crazy cat antics early this morning. She wipes me out.. It's hard to believe she is the same lovely, adorable kitty cat. Thank you for sharing. Nellieanna do to our crazy schedules I have to substitute a few cat naps to get the same effect of a power sleep. Charlotte is napping now how much would I love to crawl right beside her and sleep the day away. Sunny and cool here. I absolutely love it. ( Shells)
