Sharing my sleeping habits

Di is our host for SYW

Here are your questions for this week:

1. Do you find it relatively easy to fall asleep at night?

Since I’ve had my stomach surgery, sleeping at night has become easier. The doctor said that this surgery gets rid of sleep apnea and snoring. So not only do I sleep better but my husband does too as well.

2. Do you remember your dreams?

Very very rarely do I remember the details of my dreams. I often remember how it felt. Like a good dream or a bad one.

3. If you can’t sleep, do you watch TV, read or listen to music in the hope you will nod off?

I play games, do puzzles, or coloring on my phone. Sometimes I catch up with my WordPress reader and answer the comments too. Though experts say that the phone screen awakens and agitates the mind and then sleeping is even more difficult.

4. Can you literally sleep anywhere (chair, sofa, bus, train, flight etc)?

No, I cannot fall asleep anywhere but on a bed and have to be horizontal on that. I even find it difficult to fall asleep in a strange/ new bed the first night. I envy people who can sleep anywhere, anytime.


I am grateful for all the sleep aid medicines available that help me go to sleep even when my body or mind doesn’t want to. Melatonin is a good sleep aid. So are Advil, most allergy medications and sometimes I take a doctor-prescribed medication like Valium too. It is better to sleep the night instead of tossing and turning, thinking and overthinking about life, and then feeling tired in the morning, unable to perform even the basic functions of life.

I managed to capture the sky just before sunrise today.

Thank you Di for hosting SYW!

  1. I have a restless brain that rarely allows me to sleep peacefully -lately I have found a good spoonful of chawanprash with warm milk does wonders. I also choose a reader on Librivox with a particularily boring voice reading something incredibly dull – that always works wonders. I am so happy your surgery went well! Best wishes!
