What do you do if you can’t sleep?
1 Take a nice relaxing warm bath. Oh great! I was so relaxed that I fell asleep and drowned in the tub. Nite nite.
2 Drink some nice hot tea. Okay now I can sleep but am getting up every 5 minutes to pee.
3 Try a crossword puzzle. The only problem is that everyone is sleeping so I cannot get help with a clue.
4 Clean the house. Oh boy, Three other people are awake now. Apparently my cleaning woke them.
5 Ignore the clock. I can’t. The grandfather clock keeps bonging and reminding me that I can’t sleep. Everytime that I count, it reminds me that I have to wake up in so many hours. Yet I am still not asleep. Ugghh
6 Get some fresh air. That feels so good. I am feeling tired. I go to open the door and I am locked out. How am I supposed to get to my bed?
7 Exercise. Boy that was a tough workout. I am whooped!! I stink so I better take a shower. I am wide awake now.
8 Open the windows for some air – Okay now I hear airplanes, frogs, crickets, cars, people, dogs, sirens, and something that sounds like a dinosaur. Really!
9 I am flipping like a pancake and I hear the jeopardy theme song in my head. Okay my phone says try medication. Let me see what I have in the medicine cabinet. This should make me sleepy. Let me get back in bed. Oh no! The phone said meditation not medication!
10 Poke your partner until they are away and say Heyyyyy, you look good.
