What kind of sleeper are you? Do you drop off like a stone and awaken refreshed, or do you need pitch black and silence to drift off to dream?
These days I’m a pretty light sleeper. I get awakened by the slightest of noise or the movement and or if someone switched on a light……..in the building next to mine! Yes I am that bad.
I find it easier to fall asleep but waking up at odd hours of the night or early morning and then finding it difficult to go back to sleep. It doesn’t help that it’s been bloody hot & humid these days, especially the evenings and nights and what with mosquitoes buzzing in your ears and flying up your nostrils it just makes sleep harder. And once I wake up, no matter how tired I am, it’s so hard to go back to sleep so I find myself bleary eyed and zombie like (unless I make a huge pot of strong black coffee and have it fed to me intravenously) for most of the morning.
Naps are fine when I can manage one to freshen me up. I do need mostly dark (a little light far away is ok) and then I can drift off into my dreams which are so much more interesting than reality anyways.
