Things I do instead of sleeping

Let’s talk about sleeping. Well not quite, more about not sleeping, at all.

I sleep about 4 hours a night and not because I have to.  My little guy sleeps from 7:30 P.M.  to 8:00 A.M. every night and rarely wakes up throughout the night. I am also on summer break from college so I have nothing to wake up to do other than be with my family, do household chores and shop for food, etc.

I feel so tired during the day that I am practically passing out but as soon as I put my son down to sleep, BOOM! Wide awake.

Now without further ado, here is the list of things I end up doing at night when I should be sleeping.

Netflix: Now I use Netflix during the day but at night, I re-watch movies, shows, etc hoping to just hear familiar things and drift off to sleep on the couch without worry of missing something.

Reading: This is a huge problem of mine, I have ended up pulling all nighters because I picked up a new book and literally read all night and into the early morning.

Cleaning: I get my best cleaning done when I can’t sleep.  The kitchen becomes spotless and reorganized, all the laundry gets done and folded, stuff gets donated.  Seriously, I think my boyfriend loves it when I get on a cleaning kick.

YouTube: I catch up with my favorite YouTubers, find new DIY projects, listen to new music until I can no longer keep my eyes open which usually ends with me sleeping on the couch with my Macbook on my lap.

Blog: Yup, this is a big one. Night time is when I sit down and write out new concepts, new blog ideas and respond to emails related to this blog. Seriously, if I’ve ever responded to your email, you would see that it was probably between 1:00 A.M. and 4:00 A.M.

Nothing at all: Seriously, sometimes I am so physically tired but my brain is awake so I just stare at the wall, ceiling, etc. I just lay there begging for sleep as the hours tick by.

This isn’t all of them but you get the idea.  I do everything except sleep at night and it turns into a vicious cycle.

Cheers,
