I figured out when I was a teenager that the reason I hated the sound of my alarm clock so much was that it always went off just after I finally got into a good sleep. I think it takes about 3 or 4 hours after I go to sleep for me to really fall asleep. And of course I have to actually go to bed first, which sometimes takes up to two hours.

As I have gotten older I have started to change. I can’t sleep late I the morning anymore. So I have to go to bed a little earlier than I naturally would if daytime sleeping was an option.

However, I used to hate the people who said “just go to bed earlier” like that was the solution to the problem. I can go to bed as early as I want but it won’t make a difference. I will still sleep late and be sluggish when I get up. Unless I have one of those rare beautiful nights when I actually sleep. That profoundly deep mind body and soul relaxing sleep. And then what happens is that I am so comfy and relaxed and happy that I just don’t want to get up.

And that is what I am going to do right now. Go to bed and try to make up for lost sleep so I can have a productive day tomorrow to make up for having a very unproductive one today.
