I am currently in a sleep pattern in which I crash at about 9 PM, wake up at 2:20 AM, stay up with my monkey mind jumping all over the place while fretting that I need to get up in a few hours, get back to sleep between 4 and 4:30 AM, and wake up at 6 AM completely exhausted. Lather, rinse, repeat.

This is not a good situation.

I am now on the couch wrapped in a blanket because I was tossing and turning and didn't want to bother my sweet husband, who also never gets enough sleep.

Insomnia is a bitch.

Here's something cute--Ceeya at the park about 12 hours ago:

This one, of course, is now sound asleep and snoring. Sweet, sweet thing.

I am going to sign off now and try to meditate to clear my mind and start my week. Peace out.

If I have difficulty sleeping I get out of bed immediately. That way I am not fighting that losing battle of trying to force sleep.

Then I will read or work on a simple project or watch mindless tv in the middle of the night. all of these activieites can be done with a soothing cup of tea.

Try it and let me know how that works for you.

@mamasez, oh, I get out of bed, too. But then I end up falling asleep in a weird twisted position on the couch! LOL
