>I tell lies.
I’ve always said that “I’ve tried EVERYTHING!” when it comes to getting a better night’s sleep. That is a slight exaggeration. A white lie that I tell so people won’t tell me to do things that I know won’t work (like taking valerian – valium doesn’t work with me, alright?). You tell people that you have difficulty sleeping, and all of a sudden, everyone is a fucking doctor.
Ahem. Rant aside, there are a few things that I haven’t tried because frankly I find the idea of them distasteful. But I’ve grown sick and tired (ha ha) of not sleeping, so I’m willing to finally give them a go. Here they are:
1. Give up food to which I may have a sensitivity. Bye-bye wheat, sugar, dairy.
2. Get up at the same time (7am) every day. Apparently “every day” includes the weekend. *sob*
3. Eat breakfast every day.
4. Get sunlight in the morning (Meaning “go outside”. In the morning.).
There are a few more things that I’ll add to the list as I go along, but for October this regiment sounds painful freaking enough. If I start feeling better though, I’ll start a few more things to see if I can become the greatest sleeper that ever lived.
