The 54th Deadline: The Right Amount of Z’s
My sleeping patterns are too erratic, and I know it needs to stop. I either get too little sleep or not enough. Either way, I am screwing up my everyday activities because I essentially put myself in a weird spot. I can be too tired during the day to do things 100 percent, or I spend so much time sleeping that I feel like I am wasting hours in the day instead of using them.
For instance, this morning I literally woke up at 1 p.m. Yikes! This is laughably outrageous to sleep in this much. I went to bed around 3 a.m. as well… I just feel like I ate up half of my day without doing anything productive. It makes me guilty because I want to accomplish so much.
The thing is, I do in fact enjoy sleeping whenever I can. I love taking afternoon naps, though I know I probably should avoid taking them all willy-nilly. So it is odd to me when I find myself becoming such an insomniac in the evening when I know I should just be hitting the hay and catching those Z’s.
Maybe it is because I want to stay up to watch more shows or play video games, but I find myself regretting it more often than not like today.
Ugh, I cannot believe I have reached a point in my life where sleep, something we all need to do on a daily basis, has become such an obstacle. It makes me tired just thinking about it.
