Every single day, I wake up, get Calista’s lunch ready and her off to school. I make the short 10 minute drive to work, and sit at my desk for 8 hours, BORED out of my mind. I have a really hard time staying awake most days. I know a lot of that has to do with the fact that my sleeping schedule is awful. I usually go to sleep between 12am (if I’m really lucky) and 3am (if I’m having a really tough time).
I think I need to start working on a bedtime routine. I preach to Calista every day:
1. Take a shower
2. Brush your hair
3. Brush your teeth
4. Read for 30 minutes
5. Go to sleep
I think that helps her a lot, in preparing for sleep, because every day, she is passed out within 10 minutes.
Maybe I should adapt her same bedtime routine to myself. Sometimes I try to take a sleep assitance medicine when I remember, but more often than not, I don’t. I think that changing my sleep routine will help a lot with the lack of energy I have during the day, which is a HUGE reason I had such a hard time giving up soda before. I felt I needed the caffine, and seeing as I don’t drink coffee, and hate tea…but now, it’s been 19 days without soda, and I need to find another option to perk myself up!
