My insomnia has been such a terrible problem for such a long time.
I had this first when I was in high school. My school was a look-a-like military school where I had to wake up early in the morning, take exercise, prepare for school, attend morning assembly, have 15 minutes sharp breakfast (sometimes it only took 30 seconds until 5 minutes if I had extra basketball training), attend morning checking, study in class, attend afternoon assembly, have another 15 minutes sharp lunch, have only some spare time if there wasn’t any activity, prepare for dinner, have another 15 minutes sharp dinner, study for 2 hours, attend night assembly, have another study time or prepare my uniform for the next day, and have less sleep almost most of days. So within time by time, I was getting used of doing my activities all day with less sleep. I could have a late night sleep. I could stand that kind of life.
Then when I’m in university like now, I have a more irregular and unstable life. I can sleep and wake up anytime I want resemble the schedule I have. Then mostly of my productive time is after 11 pm or even worse, after 2 am (although people say : “Nothing good happens after 2 am”). Fortunately, I make coffee as my favorite drink on such days, and still drink more mineral water to neutralize it. But the bad thing is, I have less exercise than I had in my high school.
Some of my friends already rebuked me for this. Some also put mad faces and high voices when they scolded me, haha. I appreciate their concern, and also trying my best to remedy this bad habit, but sometimes there is always something I have to do. So the least I can do now is using my time a little bit more efficiently, like use any spare time for resting a moment and recharging my power, or doing a healthy diet to make sure my body still gets enough food for a day. Well it’s like my said has the opposite with what I do now, writing this post, hahaha.
Have a healthy life, people, if it’s not necessary to live this kind of life like me, hehe. 🙂
