EARLY TO BED AND EARLY TO RISE

EARLY TO BED AND EARLY TO RISE

MAKES A MAN HEALTHY,

WEALTHY AND WISE.


A great saying but as adults do we really practice what we preach?


I love this very old quote and I think it must have been written for women going through menopause.

When I was going through menopause I realise that I got into a bad habit of not getting enough sleep.

Unfortunately we can get quite used to this but it is definitely not good for our health.

During menopause I seemed to be hot all the time and therefore many times a night I would stir or completely wake up.

Bad sleeping habits is something that creeps up on you.

I have always loved my sleep and of course having 3 children, working sometimes long hours can sometimes be a luxury at times.


It becomes a pattern.....

During menopause.....


I would wake up hot a few times every night....

put the fan on....

and eventually getting back to sleep......

I started getting used to only getting a few hours of good sleep per night.


Anyway..... I started to make more of an effort to get a good nights sleep.

so....

I decided that I would start to get to bed by 9.00pm at least some nights in the week. No excuses and no distractions. I even turned off my phone just in case someone wanted me or texted me just when I got into bed.

so....

Yes I woke up twice hot but tried not to disturb myself too much and went back to sleep.


I feel that our bodies can get out of sink very quickly and adapt to new patterns. When I forced myself to change this pattern and be consistent the new pattern started to become my normal.


Now I have found that this is the first winter for years that I have actually been cold....

OMG it is so cold but I am sleeping well.


A big reason to be grateful.


Menopause is over.....

Sleep is great.....


Amazing......
