Great idea... I will try that tonight and see if that helps. It's weird though, all of this prep to go to sleep. Something I have never had to do. I guess none of us have had to do before the Rise Of The Machines. When it was time for bed, I would, well, just go to sleep. None of this nonsense of getting prepared to get ready for bed.
We do have a nightly routine that happens about an hour before bed. I will try to add all of this to that list. It is intimidating in a way, all of this stuff to get ready to go to sleep. It makes me anxious wondering how I will sleep, how long I will sleep etc. I still fall right to sleep but it is always there... Can I breathe, self analyzing if I am actually asleep as I am asleep or in that SWJ stage. The brain is a very weird thing. I did this a lot last night. I think I was asleep but I was wondering if I was asleep, while I was sleeping. Looking at Oscar, I was asleep- or in some form of sleep. I did keep my mask on last night during one of these wondering periods. I would typically feel that way and take the mask off. In some way I was able to realize, or at least tell myself while I was wondering if I was asleep to keep the mask on, even if I wasn't asleep... While I was sleeping. Or something like that. I can't even begin to describe what my brain does while I am asleep. I am not there and it is out riding a roller coaster somewhere or recalling that perfect wave I caught once. I am not responsible for what my brain does while I am asleep!
Fabulous? I had a really good day. Working on fabulous.
It did feel good yesterday. I would not go as far as a sleep high just yet but I am working on it.
You seem to be doing really good in your journey. I always look for your posts to see how you are doing.
I hope you have a great weekend. It is cold and rainy here. High of 49° today. Fall is coming. I love it! Opened the bedroom window last night- great sleeping weather- Now if I could only sleep all night! ROFL.
