Being real: About sleep.

/Hi and Welcome to the first post from the Being Real series where I share my personal life lessons.

Being real: About sleep

The recurring theme this week is sleep.

From Sunday evening, I've had nightmares for 5 consecutive nights.

My sleep was so horrible, lucky I had adrenaline and excitement coursing through my veins to get me through the days. 

By Thursday evening, I was almost delirious. 

I just wanted to have a good night's sleep. 

No nightmares, happy dreams whatsoever. 

I needed rest.

Friday morning I woke up smiling. 

You can only guess why. 

I woke up with zero nightmares or dreams, as much as I can remember.

But I woke up twice. (So maybe I did dream but they were not impactful enough to disturb my sleep)

But I didn't check the time both times so I still felt like I had restful sleep. 

I got the great tip from one of Mathew's 50 sleep secrets you should totally check out here:


I got through the day but by Friday evening, I felt like I was in a dream.

You know the state where you feel you're out of your body?

That's how I felt Friday night. I need sleep.

I slept early and woke up early on Saturday.

Honestly, good sleep truly can do soo much. 

I went for a jog, got some sunshine in. 

It was the best day of my life! 

(well I felt like that)

Life's truly perfect when you have good sleep.

Hung out too late with my friends Saturday evening and I ruined my sleep cycle ):

Slept in and a nap after lunch didn't make me feel better. 

I felt horrible the entire Sunday.

So, first step to taking care of yourself:

Sleep early, sleep well and have a good sleep cycle.
