Unable to sleep

Right now, I am laying awake and unable to sleep. Strangely, I don't feel tired at all however I know that in the morning, when I have to get up and go to work I will be feeling exhausted. After falling asleep at about 9:30, I only slept for about 3 hours before waking up, wide awake. After reading for over an hour, unfortunatly I am still not feeling as though I would be able to sleep so I have resorted to writting a post. Then, if I still cant sleep, I will probably put a series on.

Although I know that staying busy like this is probably the worst possible thing when you are trying to sleep, I just find laying there and trying to sleep far to frustrating. Atleast this way I dont get frustrated or angry about ot being able to sleep. Do you have any tips or tricks that you use whe you are unable to sleep? I honestly don't know why I am suddenly having trouble sleeping as my sleeping patterns have been a lot better lately. I guess that it is just one of those things that happens to everyone sometimes.

I don't know if this happens in the rest of the world but today is the day that we put our clocks forward one hour in Australia. In fact I just watched the clock on my tablet go from 1:59 to 3:00. So I have literally just lost an hour or sleep time too (Not a good thing to happen on a night when you are already struggling to sleep). This means that when I go to work at 8:30 in the morning, it will actually be like going to work at 7:30. Crazy right?

This also means that it will stay darker later of a morning which isn't a good thing as I was really enjoying going on my early morning walks with Tess in the sunshine. But atleast now it will allso stay daylight for an extra hour each night so I will have more time to walk Tess after work each night. I honestly don't know which one I wwould prefer more, having more time in the morning or in the evenings of daylight. Probably the mornings as I am more of a morning person and usually just like to stay home and relax in the evenings anyway.

Well I hope that you are having a great day, wherever you may be in the world :)


  1. I hate it when that happens! Do you have trouble with sleep a lot? I used to use an over-the-counter sleep aid called Restavit, which I think was doxylamine (an antihistamine, of all things!). It's not something you can take every night, but it's an option for those nights when you just can't sleep.

    Watching the clocks change is so weird! Because of the new public holiday, my mum and brother and I all went to bed on Friday thinking it was Saturday, and thought yesterday was going to be Sunday! Sigh.
    Look at it on the bright side - if you can't sleep, then you've lost an hour of being sleepless in the middle of the night, and you're an hour closer to sleep. The rest of us just lost an hour's sleep! :P

    Take care <3

    1. I used to have trouble sleeping much more when I was underweight but my sleeping patterns have become much more normal now that I am a healthy weight and am eating plenty each day. Thanks for sharing your own experience of having trouble sleeping, I hope that you have been sleeping ok lately though. :) x

      Haha, you are right! I never thought about it like that. It did mean that I didnt have to lay there trying to get to sleep for as long :) I hope you are doing ok Bella! <3 xx
