I’ve been having the worst time sleeping lately. This past week I haven’t had more than 3 hours of sleep a night, if I’m lucky. I’m grateful for even getting that much but it’s not enough.
Even melatonin isn’t helping and that’s about as hardcore as I can personally get because I need to be able to hear, respond to and assist my kids in the middle of the night.
Stress is a major factor here and while I can’t necessarily do a whole lot about that, there are things I can do.
I’m aware that I haven’t been drinking much water or at least not drinking enough water. That can have a profound impact on sleep quality. Depression is also playing a role in this as well.
One of the things I’m doing to combat that is working out. Unfortunately, that’s more difficult in a pandemic. Inside the next month or so, I will be receiving a BowFlex Max Trainer. I ordered it lastonth and it’s delivery date is about 60 days from the order date.
I chose this because it’s almost zero impact, the kids can use it and it’s safer than a treadmill, should Gavin blackout while exercising.
I’m so excited because I desperately need the outlet and this will help with my weight loss journey as well as helping with my depression management.
I’ve still got about a month to wait but I want to use that time to start building better habits so that when it arrives, I’m in a better place to take it on.
Anyway, that doesn’t help me with sleep now. I need to figure something out because zinxant keep going on like this.
