Today's Friday Love post is inspired by the LACK OF SLEEP I've had this past week. Seriously, it all started last Friday when I stayed at my parents. I never get a good night sleep there unfortunately but it's a free place to stay in midtown Manhattan so I can't complain right? Well, I complain anyway. And all week I've been having trouble staying asleep. Falling asleep is no problem, it's just the continued waking up in the middle of the night that kills me. What do you do for a good night sleep?
While I still get sleepy even if I drink a cup of coffee an hour earlier, I'm sure my love of coffee is playing a part in my lack of sleep. I gotta cut down. And don't tell me to drink tea, I hate tea.
I already spray Lavender on my pillow before I go to bed. It's a nice smell, it use to work well for me where when I wake up I feel rested and ready to go. Not so much lately.
I admit that I do not have a calm mind. It's the hardest thing for me to do. This is why I don't keep a physical To Do list. My mind works so fast that checking an actual list gets put off to the side. I often say my mind is on overdrive and it's what also probably wakes me up at night. There is a lot of stress offline that I won't get into and my blog & Etsy are my escape so I'm also thinking about what more can I do for those things too. I'm not asking for much right now, just maybe 12 hours of sleep straight with nice, pleasant dreams. I'll save my weird dreams for another post. Happy Friday!
