Self employment has destroyed my sleeping patterns. I used to wake up and go to bed at the same time every day; no alarm clock required. No I find myself working all hours of the day and night. It has completely thrown my sleep patterns through a loop.
A few months ago I discovered the nap. It was glorious! I had no idea what I had been missing. Since it is sometimes hard to sleep when I need to, naps help. If I feel one coming on and I can take a break, I do. It is amazing the boost I get from a ten to thirty minute nap. The problem is I rarely get a full nights sleep.
I think the naps are to blame. How can something that makes me feel so good turn around and make me feel like crap? From what I see, the problem is….I actually don’t know what the problem is. What I do know is my body needs rest. If it’s only in ten to thirty minute increments so be it. That’s better than nothing at all. I imagine at some point my sleep pattern will evolve. Until then I will take it when I can get it.
