Sleep problems...with 8 hours of what?

Thursday, October 24, 2013

I've been working on our daughter's Halloween party which is Saturday, it snowed yesterday, so it's kind of hard to get going on it, normally it's here at the house, so I'm not really in the mood to do it, but I know I need to get going on it. I've been feeling tired, I think it's because normally I go to bed at 2 am and I've been going to bed around 1130-midnight. I don't know why I should be tired going to bed earlier, but man, I really am. I'm getting 8 or 8.5 hours of sleep and I really need to get back to getting less, this is raising havoc on me, for some reason. I'm feeling so drug out it's not funny.

I seem to feel so much better with lots less sleep. I know they get after you for getting 7 hours and less sleep, but wow, I do feel so much better getting 7 hours of sleep, than 8 and more. Is that weird or what? I can't help it, I just can't handle this 8 hours and more of sleep, it's really doing me in. so what do you do when this happens. I'm telling you, I just don't know if I can do this anymore. I've been doing 8 hours of sleep for nearly a week now, and I'm really feeling like I'm sick, that's how bad it is....I don't know if I can do this anymore.

So that's the do I "fix" it...go back to less sleep, or stick with it...I'm lost....any suggestions? emoticon

    I have been having trouble getting 7-8 also. I want to, but my body won't comply! So, I at least "rest". I read an article about resting/sleeping and it said even if you can't sleep a solid seven to eight hours, at least rest. So, sometimes, I just lay there as if I was sleeping and my body rests. Works for me!

    your body has to adapt. I've been there. I'm used to getting 4-5 hours sleep a night and have been striving to increase that to 8. I'm up to 6-6.5 average and there are days that I just feel bad after sleeping so 'long'. but eventually it will be oday. I'm adding about 15-30 minutes every 2-3 weeks so it's slow going and I wake up a lot..but I know that it will be worth it in the end. Keep Sparkin'!
