Hey guys, welcome back. So how was your Christmas? I hope it was good. Mine went well (assuming you were wondering). I got evertything I asked for, which honestly wasn’t much, and I was so grateful to have the time with my family. Dinner with my extended family is always filled with laughter and happy memories and is always something I look forward to.
Something that’s been quite odd lately though is my sleeping patterns. Usually, I’m a person who likes schedules and routines so a change in the way I’m sleeping is a bit worrying.
I’ve been falling asleep very abruptly, often as I relax on my bed. If I get a little sleepy, I tend to go lie down in bed just to rest a bit with a book or quiet music until I’m actually ready to go to bed. But recently, as I lie there, I get so tired that I fall asleep with clothes and makeup on, contacts in, the light still shining, door shut, and book/phone in hand. It really isn’t good.
Another thing that’s been happening is I’ve started to nap. I never EVER used to be able to nap. I would try desperately but just couldn’t. Now, it seems to be happening against my will. If I get tired during the day, sometimes I set a timer for ten minutes and shut my eyes, never actually falling asleep, just resting. However in the past weeks, the timer doesn’t even seem to matter as I’ve been falling asleep for hours at a time.
My best guess for this sudden change in pattern is that it’s probably because of anxiety and all the sleep I’ve lost to worrying in the last month.
I hope you somehow enjoyed this strange update kind of post. I really want to take the break from school to re-dedicate myself to this blog because I truly enjoy posting and I’ve missed it so much. I don’t like posting infrequently. I have to learn to accept that there will be negative posts because sometimes I’ll need to release negative thoughts.
See ya soon!!!
