Just updating you on my first complete week of my mission to sleep like a normal human being. As mentioned in my prior blogs, I have started out this mission using an app called 'Calm'. I did their '7 days of sleep' program which teaches you to be a better sleeper.
So true to the law of sod, the week I decide to make an active effort to improve my sleep happens to fall within the week of my kid being sick, the parents among you are probably aware that this usually means feck all sleep. I considered delaying my little sleep experiment. But life happens to all of us, so I soldiered on to see what would happen.
Now considering that I had a clingy, regularly waking, hot as a radiator child to contend with, the results were way better than I expected. I did get a few daytime snoozes in with the kid however, but usually it'd take me the length of his nap to actually fall asleep.
My weekly average total sleep was 6hr 44 min, as I've mentioned I usually struggle to get an average of 5 hrs.
The '7 days of sleep' was full of useful hints and tips of a good night sleep and I was able to use it alongside the short sleep meditations. I tried a few sleep stories too. My son especially loved the kid's sleep stories as well, though wasn't overly enthralled with the kids meditations.
So yeah, I really liked this app, I will definitely give it another go during an average week to see what the outcomes are too. Thumbs up xxxx
