No more nightmares
Sleep is not something that I enjoy. I’m a bit funny that way. You can’t get me to bed, I’m never done my day, but in the morning you can’t get me out of bed. Luke used to be the opposite; he loves mornings. He also sleeps soundly all night long with barely any dreams. I was always envious of that.
I used to have the most vivid dreams that haunted me the rest of the day, even to the point of me believing things had happened in reality when really it was something that person had said in a dream. It’s almost got me in trouble a couple times! My dreams weren’t usually nightmares, but every couple weeks I would have a series of nightmares that would continue night after night; the same re-occuring dream. With all of the vivid dreams I’ve had I’ve learned to be able to control them when I’m sleeping, how to wake myself up, etc; but, when these nightmares came there was no stopping them no matter how many times I had watched the horrors night after night.
I am SO happy to say that me eating healthy has brought on a whole new sleep mode. I’m actually sleeping! Barely any vivid dreams and a true feeling of sleeping like a rock. I wake up and my body could be cemented to the bed, I’m so relaxed into it. It’s wonderful.
I’m not improving on going to bed on time, unfortunately. The extra energy from the food isn’t helping. I gotta say though, every morning I find I’m jumping up earlier and more refreshed! I hope this keeps evolving into even better thing as I’m enjoying how much of a day I get!
Still working on figuring out if the coffee I drink during the day effects my mood later on. (poor Luke) Tomorrow I’m going to try no caffeine and see how I get as the day goes on. I’m going to miss it!
