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 binging and bonging to remind me that I can’t sleep. Every time 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. Great, I am locked out. Flower bed, it is!
7 Exercise. Boy, that was a tough workout. I am whooped!! I stink, so I better take a shower. 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, whatcha doing?
