My sleep pattern was always a little bit weird and I never really had an explanation. I woke up numerous times during the night and just couldn’t go back to sleep, no matter how hard I tried.
My husband always snored or made funny noises during the night, something that I never got used to. I could sleep with it, but wasn’t able to fall back asleep while listening to it. There wasn’t a night when I didn’t tell him to “roll over.”
I just thought it was a part of me and a part of my life. I got up in the middle of the night when normal people were still sleeping and I started working. 3 am or 4 am was a normal time for me. I never felt well rested, was tired in the evening, but still didn’t go to bed and continued watching TV with my husband.
Then, last year, when I got sick I moved into the guestroom for a couple of weeks. The first nights felt odd, I wasn’t used to sleeping alone and then, after a few nights I slept. I slept like a baby and didn’t want to get up in the morning.
I moved back into our master bedroom and found myself haunted by my old sleeping routine.
I know I am a very light sleeper and having the love of my life snoring beside me like a bear in heat, just didn’t help.
Our guestroom is now my bedroom. He doesn’t have to listen to “roll over” anymore and I sleep all through the night. I wake up in the morning well rested and full of energy.
Nothing else has changed in our relationship, we just sleep better~!
When was the last time you felt truly rejuvenated and energized? What made you feel that way?
