SLEEP: Day 1-3 of 30 – How Am I Still So Sleepy?!

How Am I Still So Sleepy?!

30 Day Challenge Accepted Sleep

I’ve gotten more sleep the past three days than I normally do.  On Days 1, 2, and 3 of the 30 Day Sleep Challenge I averaged 6-1/2hours a night (my  norm is closer to 5-6hours a night). Yet I feel even more tired during the day now than I did before.  What is going on?

12:30am-7:00am (6-1/2hours), Hit Snooze: 1x

Hubby got a work call at 3:30am that woke me up. Have a mentioned that I’m a very light sleeper.

Day 2
12:30am-7:00am (6-1/2hours), Hit Snooze: 0x

Slept right through the night, yet when I woke up I laid there for 20minutes before finally getting out of bed.  One of my future challenges will have to be the Morning Challenge.

Day 3
12:15am-4:30am, 5:00am-7:30am (6-1/2hours), Hit Snooze: 3x

In the middle of the night my son woke me up when he crawled into our bed.  Then I couldn’t fall back to sleep because my husband started snoring.  So I went to sleep in the guest room, stopping by my daughter’s room to give her a kiss, but she wasn’t in bed and I got scared.  Thought maybe my son had come to our room because she crawled into his bed, but she wasn’t in his bed either.  So I ran to wake my husband, and there she was… tucked by his side, hidden from view.  Unlike her little brother, she knows how to sneak into our bed without waking me.

I thought it would be a struggle to go to sleep earlier than 1:00am, but instead I’m finding struggling to stay awake by midnight.  I was expecting with more sleep I would have more energy, but instead it’s like my body is begging for even more sleep.  Apparently I’m supposed to be hibernating. So off I go… good night.

    This reminds me of what this sleep training author named weissbluth says. “Sleep begets sleep”. You are sleep training yourself. 🙂
