I have an idea.
I’ve spent my whole life feeling that I am not getting enough sleep. Every morning, getting out of bed has been extremely difficult. I get around 7 hours of pretty good quality sleep each night but I wake up desperately tired and angry at the world for making me get out of bed.
I wonder if maybe I am getting too much sleep. Everyone’s needs are different and maybe mine are too. Sometimes after taking a 15 minute nap I wake up feeling refreshed. A full night’s sleep does not refresh me. Something not right here.
I usually wake up a few times a night and maybe go to the restroom. I notice that during those wakeups, I don’t feel so tired. I think I’m going to try a new experiment. I’m going to just get up and do something for a while. If I feel tired I’ll go back to bed until the alarm goes off. It couldn’t hurt to try and I might enjoy it.
The shortness of waking time I am allowed weighs heavily on me and having a little more would be really nice. I think I might give it a shot for a few days and see what happens. It might also help me to fall asleep more quickly at bedtime.
A few weeks later…
Yeah. That’s not happening. I am not feeling like staying out of bed in the middle of the night. Nevermind.
