Sleep Challenge Day 9

Thursday, August 09, 2012

Good sleep, good nutrition, good exercise . . . and compression socks. What do they have in common? All things which might help the leg swelling which the Primary doc says is due to the varicose veins. If I'm very successful, perhaps I won't need to fight the compression socks every morning.

It's funny how putting a favorite activity on the back burner can affect you. I "allowed myself to paint last night before bedtime, and it was as beneficial as playing the harp was a couple of nights ago. Possibly not as great as the nighttime swim, but it's not too safe when it's storming.

I'm developing a list of activities that assure a good night's sleep so that I can switch them out if something prevents me from doing one, and it will also help me to rein in the randomness. If it isn't on the list, it can't be done before bed time!!

So, it's that time, and I'm going to put on my playlist for sleeping, paint a while, and then play a couple of songs that are calling me to the harp.

Maybe tomorrow's weather will cooperate and allow a swim AND painting AND playing the harp!!
