I’ve suffered from insomnia my whole life. I can remember as early as 6 years old being up way past my bedtime just staring at the ceiling. The idea of falling to sleep as soon as my head hit the pillow was completely foreign to me. It wasn’t until I was a teenager when I found out most people could actually fall asleep just a few minute after going to bed. Oh, to be so lucky!
My sleep patterns have gotten better over the years. I try to read or watch a tutorial video until I start to nod off and that seems to help. But I can easily wake up two hours later and be wide awake.
I sometimes wake up 30 minutes before my alarm and just stare at it. I might get up to go to the bathroom, but something inside me keeps me from starting my day. So it’s back to bed I go to see if I can enjoy those last 25 minutes of sleeplessness. And then the alarm rings. I’m already up so this should be easy, but nope.
My finger goes right for that snooze button. And like clockwork, something in my mind clicks and I’m able to fall asleep. It’s only 4 minutes of sleep between snooze hits, but those 4 minutes of are some of the best 4 minutes of my morning.
What about you guys? How well do you sleep?
