Hi all,

It's the end of the month and so it's time for some Hot Tips & Cool Resources...but first...


In truth: I’m tired today, plus my neck is stiff, a headache is threatening, and I’m on the edge of grumpiness. I don’t want to be tired or grumpy. I want to be full of energy and enthusiasm. But my sleep routine is out and I can’t seem to get it back on track. Do you ever have nights like this...??

I try to go to bed early. But I’m wide awake. I play a relaxation mediation. 30-minutes later I’m still awake. Then I need to pee... So I get up, turn on the light, go downstairs, come back upstairs, climb into bed, get comfy again… 

And then my dog wants to pee...Crikey!! Up again. Lights on. Downstairs. Oh boy! Back in bed again. Lights out.

Okay, let's try this again...Get comfy, close my eyes…

Now there’s a gigantic moth tapping out techno beats with its wings on my window. Lights on. Catch and release the over-active moth! Back to bed… 

I finally get off to sleep sometime after 2am…and I’ll be waking up at 5am, so that’s not enough sleep by a long shot. 

It’s the sixteenth day in a row that I’ve been sleeping poorly. I know that may be nothing to some insomniacs. Still its not fun waking up tired, or going through the day feeling like you are wading through mud. 

I’ve tried resting and taking it easy. I’ve taken nana-naps in the middle of the day (but that only made it harder to sleep that night).

Sleep pattern still a mess.

But I know this won’t last. Today I will exercise and tire my body out good and proper. Today I will get to bed on time. Today I will wind down an hour before bed. Today I will stretch my body and iron out the stiffness. Tonight I will sleep.

Well, that’s honestly me in this moment! Despite my tiredness, I’m still turning up and giving it my best.

PS. How are you? Are you sleeping? What's keeping you up at night? Shoot me an email and let me know.
