It is no secrete that I've struggled with sleep. I've before declared myself some what of an insomniac.
The odd thing that I am dealing with now is that I am getting a fairly decent nights sleep (for me that's about 7 hours) and still feeling exhausted during the day.
My theory is that the first half of summer was littered with nights I would only clock in 3 hours of sleep. I was on the go all the time. The funny thing is that although I was tired I always had the energy. Now I think with my schedule becoming slightly less hectic I am finally slowing down enough to realize how tired I've been.
I've always been the type of person who just pops right up when I hear the alarm. Usually I'm already awake anyway. Recently I hit snooze a million times and after that my hubby literally has to pull me out of bed. All day it is hard for me to get moving. I have small spurts of energy but nothing that is sustained. I've even had urges to take up napping which I've never done or liked to do in the past.
I guess my question for you fabulous friends is what are your tips for staying alert durring the day? I need some advice! I do have a cup of caffeine in the morning but then I switch over to decaf for the rest of the day. Should I considering upping my caffiene intake? I did in the beginning of the summer and I seemed to have much more energy...but then it was harder to stay asleep at night. Grrrrr!
