Small Naps

I am learning a way to cope with my insomnia. I brake naps when I get tired, rather than force myself to stay awake in the hopes that sheer exhaustion will make me sleep. That approach has failed miserably.

So here I sit at nearly 0209, awake after a long nap. No longer will I lament what is happening to me, because I cannot control it. This time will be used to start, and perhaps complete, a blog post. It feels better when I turn this middle of the night awake time into something positive.

I already know that the future of this night can go either one of two ways. I will get more sleep, or I won’t. I’m tired of trying to make that decision for my body because it never succeeds.

One thought on “Small Naps

  1. I’m sorry to hear that you’re going through the nap or no nap phrase. The same happens to me, which is why I’m up at 4:30 a.m. writing this comment. 🙂 I used Kava Kava for awhile. It works, but it also slows the metabolism. I gained about 10lbs in 2 months.
