Fixing my sleep
I woke up this morning before my alarm went on. For the last week, I have been working on regulating my sleep. Since the pandemic, I noticed that my sleep has been inconsistent and less.
I have been feeling more tired in the mornings.
I established a daily plan to improve my sleep. The plan required changes in my daily routine. I had to rework my nights and mornings.
I expected suffering to fix my sleep. In my mind, I forecasted it was going to be painful. I said to myself: It’s going to be hard to get my sleep back on track.
To my surprise, it was not that bad at all. I made readjustments, and I have been able to stick with them.
I had to warn my husband and kids of my plans. On the first days, there was little resistance from them. I had to stay firm about my commitment, but to my surprise, they also benefitted.
After a week of doing my sleep improvement plan, I can report that my goals are on track. Today I woke up naturally after sleeping for 8 hours.
And another brilliant achievement, the plan is rubbing off on the family.
Everybody in the house is also sleeping longer. I also noticed that my kids are getting up easier in the morning. That it’s a fantastic thing when you have a teen and pre-teen.
Why did my plan work?
Because everyday day counts, establishing this new habit will take me more weeks. I’m ok with that. The key to getting my new sleep routine to stick is not to take a break.
I can’t let it go for a day. It is possible to train our body to get good sleep. Repeating the same routine has been my power tool.
Being a consistent person can help you learn, create, and change any habit. Once the habit comes naturally to you, and you do it without even thinking about it, you are set. Not until it is that easy, you need to make an effort to make every day count.
