For Day Two of my 30 Day Wellness Challenge, I have decided to tackle my poor sleeping habit. For years, I was chronically sleep deprived. As a student, I pulled all nighters on the regular. Even as a working stiff, I would keep late hours reading or watching telly as a way to escape the boredom of my waking hours spent in a cubicle. Then, my health took a nose dive. Night after night was spent tossing and turning in pain, trying to count sheep and failing. Because I wasn't getting quality REM sleep, my memory and cognitive functions were impacted. So I figured I might as well start staying up late, aimlessly surfing the Net. Better that than miserably trying to sleep. It didn't help that Monsieur loves falling asleep to the telly. I don't know how many times I have had to get up at 3 or 4 am to turn off the telly. Now, I picked sleep as today's actionable task because this is something that, normally, does not require buy-in from other household members. Obviously, my goal might be a little harder to achieve because I find it very difficult to fall asleep with the television blaring away. But, I am determined to give it a shot because I want to get up the next day without feeling like I haven't rested at all. I am positive that getting a good sleep will help me to lead a more balanced life.I hope you will continue to follow along on my journey. Use #30days2wellnesslbh on Instagram so I can find you!
