Thanks for all your small week words last it was really important for me to share it with you and I have carefully read all of your stories. Merci !
Today I wanted to talk to you about my insomnia problems and how I'm trying out ^^
I don't remember having problems before sleep my 25 years old. I've always been a big Marmot and I am not part of these fools who found that sleep is a waste of time. I love sleep, I find it sweet, and I could go back to sleep to infinity in the morning or after a NAP. I love this time can no longer fight and where we let ourselves go to sleep, I find that exhilarating feeling.
But paradoxically I've always hated to go to sleep. And as far as I can remember, child I said already “No dodo” When we put to bed, and I am always noted for playing in my room. I spent my childhood to make me yell at because I was never to bed at the time where the child should be.
I'm still at bottom in what I do, It always frustrates me to go to bed, I'm someone a little obsessive, and when I have an idea in mind there it gallops up and there is more room for sleep. But yet when I sleep, I am well and I want to stay there.
I started having real problems to fall asleep last year of DSAA in Boulle. It was the beginning of insomnia, do not sleep until 5 o'clock in the morning Sunday night because I pondered too to my project of end of year. It was hyper productive because I found a bunch of solutions to my problems, but it has exhausted me quickly. I came to my degree exhausted, and I had lost 4 kilos.
I called it my little creative insomnia, I couldn't find that much serious, even if it had somewhat changed my nights of permanently. Since I have to do regularly with these short nights, especially in times of big activity where I think my work continuously. And it exhausts me.
So I decided to finish and find solutions, because I can't keep everything what do I do if I can't find a little rest the night, at this rate I'll take me 10 years in the mouth and out me and I have no desire. And as he was out of the question that I take sleeping pills (My doctor prescribed me something on melatonin but I don't want to take) I have a little thought.
I have therefore sought to understand what makes that I'm not asleep, to identify the different cases and look for solutions adapted to every time. I always do what is called a “sleep onset insomnia” (If I wake the night I am always whole without worries, also in the morning, the problem with me is the initial sleep). So my different types of insomnia :
When I later worked on my computer or that I spent my evening on the sofa on twitter, I feel that it affects my sleep. I have banned my room phone, I should also avoid 1 hour before going to bed. To avoid that the light of the screens have too much impact on me I have several tools : on my comp, I use the small software f.Lux which makes the more yellow light and aggressive months. For the phone I found a pretty con trick but that works : wear Sun glasses :D (Yes I have the air con). It seems that wearing sunglasses 1 hour before sleep helps to find sleep, in any case each time that I did it it worked.
I go to bed, I'm a little tired but not too much, I am quiet in my bed, No distraction, my mind is calm. And I start to think about something that amuses me, or a problem I want to solve, and bim I start pedalling on the small bike in my head. It can be an idea deco or redevelopment of my apartment (I can pick me up, Army of my meter to check measurements), the ideas for articles or. And it can last up to 5 h because I back loop my ideas in my head for not to forget. For this I found the solution : I bought a little pen with a small flashlight(for not waking up my guy with light) and a small notebook, and I note my ideas to free my mind. And hop I sleep quiet.
For no reason I do not sleep, I turn in my bed, I annoys me, I have the impression of wasting my time, and more I do it less I fall asleep. Hell !
Against it I discovered a great trick one day where I was doing a search on light therapy, I came across a site that talked about OLM, a little gadget that helps make the heart coherence.
I already knew this breathing technique that helps combat stress (I use the small relax respi on my iphone app) but I do had never tested it to bed because I have banned my room phone.
Moreover, When we can't sleep and it is pissed it is quite difficult to do only one exercise. OLM is a small light gadget that serves as a guide for the heart coherence, We focus on the light he projects from the ceiling.
I watched the videos of the site of the brand (and have discovered through the concept of insomnia sleep I mentioned above) and it intrigued me, I contacted them and they to sent me a test. I used it already 10 times and it worked 8 both 10. What is a small revolution for me, vraiment ! I never want to turn it on and do exercise but I have to admit that it works, then when night looks bad I turn it.
Bitch small insomnia
I do not want to go to bed !
I called her like that because it really is when I do my small conne I make a. This is when I sleep while I'm tired, that I fight sleep while I should be in bed for 1 h, I start the episode in a series while it is 1 hour from the mast. After I go to bed, It is 2 h, the Sandman is already past, and we expect it to return. Against this insomnia I stopped fight. When I feel that I've let the train pass, that OLM has not worked, I'm getting up, I hold in my sofa, I put my sunglasses (Yes always ridiculous but I give a damn) and watching episodes of F.R.I.E.N.D.S trying to relax. Look at it this is exactly what need me : I spend a good time because I love, and at the same time I did not need to focus because I know the episodes by heart.
I also use this little roll that my sister gave me for my air travel. It became a small habit when I insomnia, I myself spend it on the wrists and neck. I am also using a tea, and all this little ritual helps me sleep. I end up waking in the sofa before an episode that turns and I go to sleep. And all's well that ends well ^^
