Early to bed, early to rise, early to bed again, early to rise again, over and over it seems to go every night.
If it was just for a weak bladder or bowel then maybe I could accept it.
It seems for me at least, to be for a multitude of reasons.
I seem to sleep in hour or hour and half segments.
It sometimes seems like my nightly job is to make sure that the clock is still functioning.
My brain seems to be on over drive sometimes. This has some benefits as some of my best ideas come from between my many one hour sleeping sessions.
So do I try and go back to sleep, nope I try and remember my thoughts and put them down into some kind of written form.
When I do get to sleep sometimes my dreams are so vivid that I have had the odd accident.
Once I was trying to save Sue in a dream and ended up actually punching her in the face. Needless to say she woke up as well.
Served her right for sleeping while I am awake !
Then there was the time I fell out of bed and hit my head in the corner of the end table. Just missing my eye . Wow head wounds bleed!
Fortunately there have been only those two incidents so far.
Dreaming seems to be no problem, its sleep that is the problem.
A friend of mine in the hockey system is doing a study of the effects of meditation and possible benefits of athletes getting to sleep easier
This would benefit the athlete in various ways, one of which is giving the body enough rest so that it can heal itself to some extent.
Enabling the athlete to perform better.
The way I understand it , is meditation brings the athlete down from and aroused state.
The body performing better and aroused state?
Hmm, Sounds like a whole new topic of discussion.
Might have to explore that at a later date.
In the mean time, sleep tight or how does that song go? “I couldn’t sleep at all last night.”
