How many times have you heard yourself say that during the course of the day, or for that matter how many times has someone said it to you? I feel like the one thing everyone has in common these days is no one seems to get enough sleep. Whether it’s because of our schedules, or the people you live with, or the neighbors or whatever, odds are you too are probably not getting the sleep you need.
I see it every day on my way into work. People just look miserable. During your next commute, I challenge you to look at the people driving around you. They’re all half asleep as they make their way into their jobs, and you never see anyone smiling. If you do, you’re going to want to get away from that guy, cause there’s something wrong with him.
I don’t get it though, it seems like it’s the easiest thing to do, but for some reason or another, a good night’s sleep seems hard to obtain. On top of all that, even when we do get enough sleep, some of us are still tired when we wake up. Maybe there’s more to it than just not getting enough sleep, maybe the problem lies somewhere else.
Personally, being tired all the time may just be my biggest issue. I try to get to bed at a decent hour, but lately I’ve had a hard time achieving this. Writing this blog every day for the last 17 days hasn’t helped my cause much either. Most nights I don’t even get started until 9:00, and then it takes me a good two hours to come up with these literary masterpieces. I knew this challenge would make it difficult to have any spare time, but I hadn’t counted on it contributing to my sleep deprivation.
Not only does this project keep me up late, but because I’m tired from the night before I have a hard time concentrating and I can’t focus on what I’d like to say. As it is, right now It’s almost midnight, and I’m struggling to stay awake while I’m writing this, and I’ll be lucky if I’m able to finish before I fall asle
