Sleeping towards better health

Thursday, January 22, 2015

I got a lot of sleep last night, and when I got up at 9 am (wow!) I still felt like I could sleep more. Alas, I did not fall back to sleep until this afternoon. Lots of down time, resting, sleeping, with one very cozy cat. I can feel storminess coming in, my wrist was killing me for a while, so used my soft "beanie" that goes in the microwave to help that.

One of my aims, has been increasing my sleep, and trying to wean myself off my electronic gadgets in the evening. It is a work in progress.

My other aim, that I nearly reached the week before I got sick, so the week before last, was achieving 5000 steps per day. I nearly made it, as the days I missed 5000 was by mere hundreds of steps or less. Silly me, I just didn't check the app on my phone to know how close I was.

So, right now, I have a pinch more energy, but not much. I am in that place where I want to do something more than I am doing, but my "oomph" says "So? what do you want from me?" Therefore I tossed a little bit of trash from my desk. Not nearly enough, but I can see the desktop now. Barely. Hopefully more rest and sleep and tomorrow maybe I will feel well enough to do more. I know. I am supposed to be home sick. I am. I guess I just don't feel as bad as I could, but just bad enough.

My sinuses are full, my lips are perhaps 10% better than yesterday. Still a little chilly.

Sigh. Winter. Colds. Sniffles.
Hot tea, warm blankets.
One day at a time.
One step at a time.
One moment at a time.
Getting healthy is my job, especially when you're sick.

    Glad you are getting a bit more sleep and you need to rest and relax so you get over this.
    Getting rid of clutter is a process. Every little bit helps. I worked on 2 areas last summer. I pick a couple of rooms each summer and go at it-can't be outside in the heat anyhow so nice to work inside in the a/c.

    I am trying to get organize enough to prioritize ME.
    Last night I vowed 10 pm but it was 11pm but it always has been late after midnight this year.
    Tonight will be 10pm. We had a long consult on long term care. I am behind because of the Dr. visits but that is getting me better so I am prioritizing everything, HUGS Pat in Maine
