Does it take more than 1 night? 

      6 Comments on Does it take more than 1 night? 

We have absolutely nothing on the agenda for today. It’s already been a really long week, and a slow day would be much appreciated. 

I did end up going to bed around 10 pm last night, and that was awesome. My goal is to try and get my sleep cycle back on track. It’s hard to do this when you have three kids on the Autism Spectrum, who seem hell bent on not allowing for a regular sleep wake cycle. 

While I’m in a better head space this morning, I’m still helping exhausted. 

Perhaps it takes more than one night’s sleep to make an impact?

To answer your question, it absolutely takes a lot more than one night of good sleep to “make up” for chronic sleep deprivation. For whatever my opinion is worth, and it may be not much, I would think one of the most beneficial things you could do for yourself and your family would be to make, and commit to, a dedicated and thought out plan to have a regular sleep cycle. If you were routinely and reasonably well rested, you most likely would be able to physically accomplish more, you would eat better, you would feel better, you could think… Read more »

I think the napping is a big part of what kills Rob’s sleep schedule. I understand the desire or need to nap after a bad night’s sleep but that will throw you off later in the evening. And I completely agree that it’s time to train the kids that Dad is not the answer to them not being able to sleep. Dad’s bed isn’t the answer, and sleeping on the couch downstairs isn’t the answer. They are old enough to read or listen to music quietly with their headphones if they can’t sleep, and that it can and should be… Read more »

Jimmy I agree. My sleep cycle is so out of whack, it’s detrimental. To be clear, I don’t nap that often anymore. If it was particularly bad night, than sometimes I do. While that addresses the immediate problem, it also creates one as well. I have to force myself to sleep as early as 10 pm.. I’ll likely need a sleep aide for a few days but hopefully I can get this all reset. You can’t make up for lost sleep..

Good points Jimmy
