Last week I admitted that I was sleeping terribly and something needed to be done. So I proposed a Sleep Makeover, with the goal of getting 7 hours of sleep a night, every night. And how'd it go?
Well, about that.
It turns out it's not as easy as I thought. Going to bed at 11pm, for example, does not guarantee that I will fall asleep at 11pm. I might still, in fact, fall asleep at 2am regardless of when I go to bed. Frustrating, right?
The stats behind my week (because I love me some stats): I slept a total of 40.75 hours the whole week for an average of 5.8 hours a night. Ouch. More than an hour of sleep less than I wanted per night.
I feel like my main issue is that my body doesn't want to go to sleep earlier. Despite the earlier bedtime, the approximate time at which I actually fell asleep was 1:30am. An improvement over 2-3am which is what I was doing before, but still. So this week my goals are a little bit different: I'm less concerned with my hours of sleep and more focused on gradually making my bedtime earlier and more consistent. And we'll see how it goes!
