I haven’t been sleeping well for a quite a while, thanks to my wicked back pain, heartburn, and crazy bad dreams. Last night turned out to be a different and refreshing change of pace.
I did some things out of my normal bedtime routine, but nothing I’d consider to be sleep inducing. I snuggled up on our guest bed, and turned on Netflix. I sipped on sparkling lemon water and whiskey, while nibbling on popcorn and a bowl of brown rice topped with brown sugar carrots and cheese. I watched “Little Evil,” which was a cute and funny movie about a Damien type kid and his new stepdad. Then I watched “Heathers,” which I hadn’t seen in years. Good call, as I had forgotten what a delightfully twisted and cool movie it was. Right after that, I was so relaxed that I passed right the hell out. To my surprise, I even had pleasant and interesting dreams. I didn’t wake up to any discomforts until I heard my husband doing his usual banging around at 9 am this morning.
So, I just might be on to something helpful. I’m guessing it could’ve been the healthy dose of veggies before bed, but I’ll have to experiment a little bit more to find out for sure.
