You know when you start having that problem of waking up too early, and not getting back to sleep?
There are a ton of things I need to get incorporated back into my life – one – doing more yoga. The last time I went – I felt like a train wreck. I couldn’t hold my balance, and even though it hasn’t been that long since I had last been there, I couldn’t handle the heat too well, and kept having problems with dizziness.
To me, that means that I really don’t have great balance in my life. I have learned to read those signals. I am having a number of those other signals right now, so I am trying to figure out how to “rebalance” things.
I mentioned above that my sleep is being affected. Been trying several different techniques, and nothing is working well at getting back to sleep. I thought, “ok, I should try counting sheep”. Ha ha. I ended up writing a poem in my head about sheep…. maybe that will help.
So, I thought I would share it with you, as a light hearted attempt at sleep.
- One sheep, white sheep, looking for the gate
- Two sheep, black sheep, trying hard to wait
- Three sheep, red sheep, lagging far behind
- Four sheep, green sheep, starting to unwind
- Five sheep, purple sheep, full of smiles and sass
- Six sheep, pink sheep, nibbling at the grass
- Seven sheep, blue sheep, sad and standing still
- Eight sheep, orange sheep, sitting on the hill
- Nine sheep, yellow sheep, running to keep up
- Ten sheep, rainbow sheep, chilling and saying “wassup”.
- All sheep, tired sheep, need to go to bed
- Sleepy sheep, cuddly sheep, laying down their heads.
So, I can imagine this being illustrated as a children’s book – anyone want in?
Hope everyone got a restful sleep. Please send any hints to me at how I can try to mitigate this “3 AM” internal clock wakeup call.
