Sleep Deprivation

Why is that when I have to get up early, I always sleep the worse? Any other time, I have no problem with sleeping. I slept horribly the night before, and I slept horribly last night/this morning;  hence me being awake at 4:57 AM, typing out this post. For the past 20 minutes, I have been “trying” to do yoga,to no avail. Be cause I am sleep deprived, I am having a hard time focusing. I have to be at work by 7; a phone interview at 2:30, and an in person interview at 4; FML!! Hopefully once I get some java in me, I will be able to perform normally.

I have been reading up on meditation for months now, but finally decided to “try” it out last night. While meditating, I found it to be very calming and relaxing. As I sat there for a couple of minutes, I found that I was actually able to clear my wondering mind. I felt a heavy sleepiness was over me, and I thought I was going to have the best sleep of my life. As soon as my face hit the pillow, my mind started racing again. I pretty much think about the same things; my son, my future writing career, jobs, money, etc. So I could not fall asleep, so I did the worst thing imaginable; went on social media!!! I know, I know; social media is a crazy distraction! While on Instagram, I saw one picture, after another that I liked. I laughed, I cried, I “awwww’d;” the usual. Lol. I got in the bed 5 minutes to 11, and the next time I looked at my phone, it was 11:36. UGH! How am I going to function? I have never been one of those people, that could function without at least 6.5 hours of sleep. My whole mood changes; usually I am very bubbly and upbeat, but on less than 6.5 hours of sleep, I am cranky and borderline rude. Being that my job is based heavily on excellent customer service, I would say this demeanor is not conducive to productivity at work.

Hopefully you guys slept waaaaaay better than me, and are able to function. Please pray for me…
