Lately I'm finding myself to be like a walking zombie. I know the reason is that I'm staying up much too late. Last night I didn't go to bed until after midnight. And with our usual wakeup time being somewhere around 6:20 a.m. (6:50 if I'm lucky!), I'm spending my days exhausted.
So what am I doing when I stay up so late? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. Well, actually it's more like surfing the internet, reading blogs, and watching TV. Nothing of any real importance.
The reason I stay up so late is that after the kids go to bed is the ONLY me time I get. I need to relax and unwind with a little something for myself. But really all that doing nothing and staying up so late is pretty unfulfilling and leaves me like a zombie the next morning. I think it is a sick cycle that I need to break. I am hoping that tonight I attempt to go to bed early. I'm sure I could use some extra beauty rest.
I'll let you know if going to bed earlier helps me feel better in the coming days.
How do you unwind once the kids are in bed?
