Hey Everybody! How's it going? More interesting stories for you all today! On this latest episode of The Beats and Speaks Podcast, I talk about having trouble sleeping and not being able to figure out why! Can't sleep, clown will eat me! Really, I can't figure out why I'm having trouble sleeping. I work late into the night/into the next morning because that seems to work out REALLY well for me. I usually get to bed between midnight and 2 in the morning because once I get started working, have a flow, get into a rhythm, it's SUPER HARD for me to just pump the brakes and stop! I decided to call it a night at around 2 o'clock this morning, August 14th, and normally that's not a big deal, getting to bed, getting some shut eye, and about 7-8 hours of sleep is a guarantee, and I would wake up refreshed and ready to kick off my next day! However, last night decided to throw me a HUGE curveball! I got into bed, after shutting off all my equipment and moonwalking into my mattress, wanting my brain to shut down and recharge, but I just couldn't shut my eyes! My brain was still running at a million miles an hour! I ended up tossing and turning for an hour, got back out of bed, worked for another 15-30 minutes, at this point, it was 3:30, and I REALLY, REALLY WANTED TO GET TO BED AND GET SOME SLEEP! Lot of good that did me! I was just tossing, turning, had a ton of creative ideas, and just couldn't get to bed. I'm sure I caught some Z's because I felt my eyes shut eventually, but it didn't last long. I rolled over, looked at my wrist watch because I don't have an alarm clock in my room, and saw that it was 6:45 IN THE MORNING! I had managed to sleep a grand total of 4 hours and 15 minutes, YAY! As of writing this post, it's 7:40pm Eastern Time on August 14th, and I'm still wide awake! I honestly thought I would've crashed by now, but hopefully I'll sleep good tonight, that is the goal, along with GETTING TO BED EARLIER! It was an interesting day to say the least. Like I said at the beginning, I'm not sure why I am having trouble sleeping, it's happened more times than it hasn't lately. I hope it's not insomnia! Have any of you ever experienced anything like this? Get to bed late, only to wake up mere hours later? Let me know! I will say this about my lack of sleep lately, the older I get, it seems that I can function at the same rate, if not better on much less sleep than I did when I was younger, although doing it as constantly as I have isn't ideal.
