I Sleep Either Too Much Or Too Little

    I Have No Self-Discipline When It Comes To Sleeping.

    Sleep… I've had 20+ years to get it right, yet I still feel that I may just need lessons or something. I've never met anyone with sleep habits more random than my own. Though, I should probably mention that I have a chronic illness. It's not so much an excuse really as it...

    Both *Zzz*

    The point is, in weeknights, I tend to stay up a little too late, sometimes due to over thinking (and I love to read before I go to sleep, or watch tv, or take my laptop with me to bed...bad habits!) and end up not getting enough sleep for the next day, or I stay up late on the...

    It's Very Unhealthy :/

    Most nights I'll only get about 4 hours of sleep.  However about once or twice a week I'll get 10-12 hours of sleep.  Regardless of how much sleep I get, I always wake up tired and am tired throughout the day.  However, I can easily stay up until 5 am if I wish...

    -_-

    These past three to four months, I've slept like I used to sleep when I was 10. Before that, it used to be 4,5 hours every day.

    Can't Find A Happy Medium...

    I do tend to sleep deeply, that much is for sure. However, on weeknights, I tend to stay up a little too late and end up not getting enough sleep for work the next day, OR I stay up late on the weekends and end up sleeping in more than I should and feel groggy and usually have...

    Falling Asleep Yet?

    I thought I was gonna fall asleep the other day after 30 hours of being awake, but then after thinking it would happen, I stopped- well, falling asleep. I've read about and watched programs on so many methods on getting to sleep, but when I try them, I either find they prolong...
