Have you ever had one of those nights where you are lying in bed, desperately trying to sleep, but you find yourself completely incapable of doing so?
I have one of these nights about 3-4 times a month. I'm having one right now, which is the reason I'm writing this post.
As far as I can see there is absolutely no reason for these sleepless nights; no worries keeping me awake, no distractions, no dodgy food/drink choices. Nothing that stands out and says "I am the reason".
I even kept a sleep diary at one point to try and track down the cause..it didn't work.
I've tried yoga, meditation, calming music, lights on, lights off, reading, warm temperatures, cool temperatures, whale sounds and of course, Ovaltine/Horlicks. None of it works.
So on nights like these I find myself getting very annoyed. I have a million and one things to do in the morning. I need sleep! But instead I'm wide awake writing this, because I've already exhausted my Twitter feed, no-one is awake on Facebook and the man is fast asleep.
Another huge annoyance for me is that when I'm the only one awake in the house every noise is a burglar. This stresses me greatly.
In simple terms; I can't sleep = I get annoyed and stressed = I definitely can't sleep.
One day I will break this cycle, but until then I hope you're all enjoying your slumber.
Night, you annoying sleeping people ;) x
