For the past couple of weeks, I have been an insomniac. Could be because my time is too short, and I have too many things due for school and less time in which to do it all because I started my new job. Could be because I'm stressed out about all of that, plus regular stuff like money and being sad over losing one of my best friends. Could be because I haven't been exercising enough and I have been eating too much junk and my body has extra energy to burn.
So, here's the plan. As long as the insomnia is here, I'm going to make use of the time – I'll be a productive insomniac. I'll catch up on readings for school (some of which should help put me to sleep!), or on paper-writing and editing. I'll clean, or do laundry, or yoga. Or I'll post something on my blog. 😛
And in addition, I'm going back onto my low-carb diet on Monday, so that should help – no sugar, no hyper. And I'm going to get back on track with regular exercise, rather than the sporadic workouts I have been doing. And, I'm going to take my St. John's Wort. It always helps. As long as I remember to take it. I'll have to make a post-it note to myself to remind me. I don't know where I'd be without post-it notes.
I've always complained there aren't enough hours in the day – I guess this is one way to get more: just don't sleep!
