Guys, I’m tired!
Yeah– I’m a mom to a 14 month old, but I can’t really blame my baby for my sleep deficit. My boy has been a great sleeper for months and months. He rarely wakes up during the night.
No, my problem is that I’m staying up too late. There are many things that I can’t get done during the day, while I’m taking care of my son and the rest of the household. Therefore, I do my little projects (like posting on this blog!) after he goes to bed.
What does this have to do with prolapse?
I know that getting quality sleep is vital for optimal healing. I know that sleep is one area that I can definitely improve upon. So, I’ve got to get more disciplined about my bedtime. I can’t continue to allow myself to stay up until 11 PM (or even later)!
Historically, I feel pretty good if I can get to bed before 10 PM. There have been times when 9 PM was even better. My point is– I’ve never been a night owl. I get up early. These days I’m awake at around 6 AM. Often, I wake up earlier than that because we have a small house and I can hear my husband getting ready for work. My baby wakes up between 6 and 7 AM.
I need to facilitate my healing in every way that I can, and I can’t underestimate the restorative power of sleep.
So, for the record, it’s exactly 9:50 PM now. Once I hit “publish,” I’m going to bed. I’ll be peacefully sleeping very soon! I’m going to make 10 PM my goal bedtime (or earlier) from now on.
I am healed.
