I passed out earlier than usual on a Friday night only to wake up just before 2AM and it is now almost eight o’clock in the morning Pacific time and I’m still awake. I tried going back to sleep but I kept waking up. I just can’t seem to shut off my brain since waking up a couple of hours ago. Sometimes I don’t mind it as I notice that I get really creative at the crack of dawn but right now I really need that elusive sleep as I need some energy to attend one of my bestie’s baby shower. I really hope I can get even just a few hours of shut-eye before heading to the celebration at noontime. I should’ve taken some Melatonin earlier and perhaps right now I’m still in snoozy land instead of whining yet again about not falling back to sleep. I just don’t know how to quiet my busy mind most of the time but if I’m preoccupied with something like writing or reading then it doesn’t take long before I pass out.
Anyway, I’m going to TRY going back to sleep now and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I get at least a few hours of well rested sleep.
How about you? What do you do when you can’t sleep or fall back to sleep? Any tips? 🙂
