Insomnia Anyone?

Faithless explains it best ... 

Deep in the bosom of the gentle night 
Is when I search for the light 
Pick up my pen and start to write
I struggle, fight dark forces 
In the clear moon light 
Without fear ... insomnia 
I can't get no sleep

Insomnia is trouble falling asleep or staying asleep through the night. 

I typically run on four hours of sleep daily. I think that's by choice because I find staying awake while the rest of my household is fast asleep rather magical. I love the darkness. I could hear a pin drop. My time is mine. And I get to spend time alone with my thoughts. I birth ideas. I write. I read. No one to answer to. No one to call my name. 

So when I realized that even during the four hours I was depending to fall asleep, "I toss and turn without cease. Like a curse, open my eyes and rise like yeast" I decided it was time to find a solution. 

... And my first thought was to change my pillows. And in doing so, I nearly missed SCANDAL at 10pm on Thursday night. Uhhh, anyway my daughter woke me up to tell me it had started. The one time, I got to bed early, I was awoken and not very happy. Anyway that quickly dissipated 'cause SCANDAL was enjoyable, making the blood run faster through my veins. Probably gave me high blood pressure. 

It's best to try sleeping on a new pillow. Although it seems simple enough, many individuals forget how important a pillow is for getting a perfect night's sleep. The proper pillow should be comfortable, and help eliminate stress in the neck and shoulders. Using a pillow that isn't suitable for your posture can cause back pain, neck pain and insomnia. 

Again, as Spring approaches ... freshen up, buy some new pillows! And don't do like I initially did, and purchase cheap pillows. Invest in some proper pillows. Think hotel type pillows. There are all types of pillows.
