30 Days to Greater Happiness - Day 2

Wednesday, November 02, 2011

So today Spark says get at least 7-8 hours sleep to keep you energetic and less moody. Unfortunately, I do get about 7 hours a night, and yet don't find myself either energetic or less moody.

However, I have noticed that if I have a good eating day, I sleep better. Probably because I tend to do my overeating at night, then I go to bed and all that yucky crap is rattling around in my belly. So maybe I'll have to add "don't eat before bed, AND get 7-8 hours sleep a night." Sounds good to me. I've really been trying to meet that goal for years, and can't seem to get into the consistent habit of not eating at night. Gotta keep trying, because the alternative is not good.

Okay, so today is another day.. of course, I could also try to take yesterday's tip to help me with today's goal..if I'm busy with a hobby, perhaps I wouldn't be foraging for food.. Hmm, I think I've said this before..maybe this time it'll take..

    I agree with you. If I don't snack before bed I rest much better.

    I guess I missed day one so I'll have to go back and read it!

    You sound like my kind of changer! That late night munching is a challenge. I like the idea of using a hobby to counter it. Maybe if I have a rule "play the guitar before you graze", I'll get distracted. Worth a try....

    I have found that more water throughout the day helps keep me energized. A lot of times lethargy is caused by dehydration.

    Good luck!
