i am "working" on my sleep.
having spent decades working nights and 12+ hour days in restaurants, i am currently working from home, at a job that i can "do anytime". previously, most nights i'd get in bed around 2:00 am and would naturally wake up between 7:00-8:00, feeling like utter s**t. a few times per month, i'd allow myself to go back to sleep if i didn't need to be at work, but would wake a few hours later feeling groggy and out-of-sorts.
am making myself get to bed by midnight now most nights and wake between 5:00-7:00 raring to go. i sleep like a log. will try to dial bedtime back further as time progresses and see what happens.
it's only been about 2 weeks of trying to manage my sleep. WOW. what a difference. i know this doesn't really relate to bi-phasic, but i often wonder how weeks/months/years of poor sleep has impacted me?
i also live in a not-so-nice hood so can't imagine wandering the streets at 2:00 am, lol, looking for neighbors.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
