Sleep and Cheese
Friday, August 21, 2015
Sleep. Sleeeeep. It even sounds yummy.
Then why am I so resistant to going to sleep? I stay awake until 3 am reading ebooks, or watching Netflix, or being on my phone on social media. Then I wake up with a sleep deprivation headache, dizziness, grogginess, and mental fog that takes forever to subside. Like being sleep-sick. And I know the cause, the cure, and both are in my control, yet I do this night after night after night.
Obviously exercising when you are sleep-sick sucks. So there's that.
So here I am, sleep-sick, no motivation, feeling a little dehydrated, and knowing that my current sorry state of how I feel is completely my fault and was preventable. Every. Day.
It's not like I'm not exhausted when I go to bed. I have dropped my Kindle on my face while reading because of falling asleep, but then I reposition and keep reading.
It's like watching a mouse keep trying the wrong path in the maze over and over and you wonder "What's wrong with that mouse? Why doesn't he try a different route?" There is simply no cheese reward by not getting enough sleep.
Change your path, Woman!
