I was planning to go to bed by 10pm but since I have been sleeping after midnight these days, my body clock couldn’t adjust that easily. How I miss those times when I could easily sleep for 8 hours straight. In fact, I remember during my third year, I had one or two evening classes and I usually went straight to bed after those 2 hour seminars, which was by the way ended at 8pm and journey from campus to home was 10 minutes walk.
Fast forward, I’d be lucky if I get 5 hours of uninterrupted sleep. Waking up in the middle of the night is a norm and when I’m more tired than usual, I tend to get disturbing dreams. Dreams are fine as long as they are not about work. When they do, it usually means I need to control my stress level.
I suppose the older you get, the less sleep you need.
Although I was sleep deprived for the past few days, at least I wasn’t stress. Up until last night when a colleague mentioned about anxiety attack and the twitch of the eye of being a sign of strain.
I thought the cause of the twitch was because of the lack of sleep or something else and had nothing to do with stress. Clearly my body contradicted how I felt, or so I thought. Perhaps I was under pressure subconsciously. The body wanted to tell me but I was clueless, as always.
Maybe it is high time to rejuvenate myself. I have yet to use the spa gift given for my birthday. Probably it makes sense to do it soon.
For now, I could settle with a good rest. The lil one would probably advise me to have a bath with her bedtime bath lavender, followed by lavender lotion. It seems it works for her.
