Tossing and turning throughout the night
Wondering if my pillow has been adjusted just right
Growing tired of the continuous switching sides of the bed
Struggling to compete with the racing thoughts in my head
Thinking about work when you have a few more hours to yourself
What do you have to do tomorrow?
What’s wrong with me? Why can’t I sleep?
Hoping to start that workout that I’ve been neglecting
Maybe I’ll push it off just one more day…
No I won’t…not today
I promised myself to do
Away with the excuses
Besides, don’t you want to see results?
Still noticing that I’m not asleep
The bright green glare from the clock seems to be taunting me
Turned my fans up to the highest setting
The crosswinds and the white noise help to comfort me
I’ll search for a new book on my kindle to help pass the time
Hoping that losing myself in a good read will send me into a peaceful sleep….
Praying for heavy eyelids
Please share what works for you all when you’re trying to sleep.

melatonin, sometimes. Or a vigorous bike ride at least three hours before bedtime 🙂

You’re the 3rd person to suggest melatonin. I’m going to look into getting this asap! I also like the bike riding idea. Goes perfectly for getting me working out more regularly, and will help me sleep in the process :-). Thanks!
