Unusual sleep experience

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

Usually I sleep well, but sometimes I wake up too early, and my to-do list items penetrate my level of consciousness, like grass blades break through earth in fast forward motion.
The more items emerge, the less chance I have to fall back asleep.

This morning was different.
Woke up around 4 a.m. it was still dark, items started to show up one by one, about four or five... and suddenly I thought yes, I have these things to do, but I can manage them all easily today. And fell back asleep immediately and happily.
When I woke up later, a few minutes before the alarm, I remembered what happened and I was impressed.

    If only we could shut off our minds at bedtime

    That's fascinating, Kriszta! I'm sorry it's hard to fall back asleep when the to-do list is longer. What an interesting phenomenon, though! I've heard of all kinds of dreams, and I've surely had them myself, but I've never before anyone whose to-do list crept into their dreams. You are VERY conscientious! emoticon

    Going back to sleep after waking up is one of the important skills for getting enough sleep. I wish I could say I have mastered it, but the truth is that sometimes I can do as you did today, and sometimes I can't.

    I keep a note pad next to the bed and I write down things that keep me awake (to do list, resentments, bad dreams, etc.)
    It frees me up from the thoughts and I can fall back to sleep.
    In the morning I can't always read what I wrote in the dark; but occasional to-do items still stand out.
