Last winter, i had trouble sleeping of a night time. Actually getting off to sleep was the hardest.. I put it down to the boys mischief at night time. But over summer I've been falling asleep quite easily. So I've come down to these 2 reasons for my bad sleep habits.
I'm not a coffee drinker, although i do love mocha that's as far as i go and it sends me crazy. (alot gets done after having one of those!!) I drink tea, during summer i only have my morning tea that's it. It's enough to get me started for the day. In winter i seem to drink more tea, because it's so nice and warm and comforting on a cold day.. So that last week has been cooling off with lots of wind around. So I've been drinking more tea, sometimes 3 cups a day.
My other theory... After the boys are in bed, i love nothing more than to have some mummy TV time and watch some adult shows!! especially in winter, snuggled up on the lounge with a blanket.. But these shows drift on into the late night. I have been caught out many a time very late at night still watching them, then realising what time it is. Because its so late I've managed to surpass my tiredness and go into mummy stealth mode and not be able to go to sleep, as my body thinks things need to be done..
These are my bad habits and this winter i am going to try and curve them and start being GOOD, so I'm not tossing and turning in bed for 2 hours before finally going off to sleep...
Do you have bad habits??
Only 2 cups of tea a day (mainly in the morning). If i want a warm drink, i need to drink a hot chocolate!
I don't really need to watch TV, are the TV shows really going to be that upset that i missed there show at 10.30pm??? I think not!! So to bed at 9.30pm at the latest, if i'm still feeling awake, i have MANY books i can read myself to sleep with!
Here we go, now i'm thinking i might need to write this down on BIG pieces of paper and post them around the house!! We'll see how i go tonight!! LOL
