Red before bed

Red before bed

Would you believe I slept like a giant sized baby last night and it was bliss.

I’ve had a issue the past few weeks with sleep and my brain slowing down and really found I was getting only 3-4 hours of that sleep a night.

I personally cannot function properly on little sleep and it’s been hard to keep to my routine and not give into it. I function best on 7 hours.

Finally last night I slept. What was the secret I hear you say? Detaching from social media for most of my day, and before sleeping, turning the iphone away and just playing with the cats and relaxing my mind so that it slowed down and was almost like a slow steady heartbeat.

A lot has to be said for internet, social media and the like that’s so positive.

But a lot has to also be said about some of the impacts it has on you.

Draxtor Despres has an excellent attitude to it all. Switch off and engage with life.

I’ve learnt that he turns off regularly and spends time doing other things and only goes to social media at selected moments. It’s not 24/7 and actually I think we could all benefit from this.

Most of my issues stems from my Fibro but also I do feel engagement in these electronic activities has a great impact on us.

We don’t notice it until our minds are working overtime. Consider the fact many work on computers all day, then afterwards social media, television and gaming.

What opportunity are we giving ourselves to relax completely and interact with life around us?

We walk the streets and everywhere you look are people with their heads buried in their electronic devices, staring at the little screens as they walk.

What kind of world will we be in ten years from now? Will people even walk out their front doors?

Let’s take a positive action to limit our time and engage more with what is around us.

I need a lift

I need a lift

I need a lift to awake my soul right now.

It’s 1.34 pm here in the UK as I write this. I woke up about 15 minutes ago after a marathon sleep that my body clearly needed.

Exhaustion sometimes takes us by surprise and lately it has hit me like a sledgehammer.

I’ve been exhausted for quite a while now and constantly keeping myself running on my invisible treadmill for fear that if I stop and give in. This could mean a permanent life change.

To some that may sound incredibly ridiculous but to others that know how our own health issues and inner demons affect us, will understand and appreciate.

I am literally exhausted and with all the life worries that I have tumbling around in my head, I have to try and balance them. One accidental movement and the mountain could fall.

I think that’s the best way to describe exhaustion for me right now.

It’s a state of mind and a physical impact. What could change it? I don’t know. But what I do know right now, is that juggling has become my new skill.

I’ve woken up after 13 hours sleep. No more rested than I was before. Go figure.
