Pre Emptive Resting.

Oh blast. Second afternoon nap this week. It felt great, but it means a rubbish night ahead, and a messy day tomorrow. Looks like it went for about 90 minutes, which means sleep before 3AM is unlikely, and tomorrow I'll have a hard time not napping again too.

Worst bit: this has arisen because I've been again trying pre-emptive resting. That is: timetabling in rest periods throughout the day as a way to be able to use my energy in a more targetted way. This time I set my rest periods to 15 minutes with a timer, specifically to try and rule out the option of falling asleep.

I've been aiming for 4 rest periods on the average day when I'm just at home.

To add insult to injury, today's nap took place on the couch. Another way to prevent sleep was to _not_ lie down in bed, particularly on a day like today when I was actually sleepy to start with.

To further make me grumpy, I'm on a new medication for which my valerian pills are contraindicated.

~~~

The ridiculous irony of all this is that I am constitutionally incapable of doing is going to bed at night and falling asleep in less than an hour. Or getting up before (for the last several months) 11AM.

~~~

Mind you, while I sound all grumpy now, before I had my unintentional nap I was even more grumpy!

Oh...I hate that when it happens and it happens to me with increasing frequency. I don't have your medical conditions but I do have "I'm getting to be an old lady and my eyes close automatically at certain times of the day" syndrome. The worst part is not being able to fall asleep at night again.
