It's my 21st birthday today!!! I get to enjoy the ENTIRE day! it's actually kinda strange. I get to 1/3 more birthday fun than usual.
I just woke up from a nap a little while ago. I didn't really sleep though. It continues to happen, but I force myself to lie down and keep my eyes closed. This way I fall asleep 75% of the time, and at least catch half a nap. I'm sure that the next one will be better at 3:30. I'm gonna go treat myself to one of Ty's fabulous peanut butter smoothies. =)
Been a while since my last post. I'm still on it. I had a falling out around Thanksgiving with 3-4 days of extreme oversleeping. Where I'm at right now:
I tend to oversleep daily. Just random times. Seems out of my control. Like I will sleepwalk, turn off my alarm, go back to sleep. Or randomly fall asleep at my computer, or find myself in my living room, very confused as to what's going on and what time it is.
I'm usually really exhausted and out of it at 6 am-10am, and then feel fine after 11am...almost like clockwork. But then I will oversleep at other random times when I actually feel okay, like 2pm.
I set Nap as a required daily activity a bit back.
It's been marvelously amazing.
The first few hours after waking, in general, are just so much better for willpower and creativity.
A decent nap -- sometimes even just 20 minutes will do, sometimes longer -- seems to give 90% of the benefits of "just woke up for the first time.
It's really marvelous. Try it. I'm mandating it for myself under normal circumstances, rearranging my schedule to nap, etc. It's that good.
