Once upon a time, about a year ago, I figured out that if I got eight hours of sleep I felt great! I then proceeded to ignore my good advice for the next twelve months and get about 6 or 7 hours a night because I am a fool. But in that post I said, oh so blithely, “Once I make it to bed, I can sleep pretty well.”

Well, not anymore. Not only am I not going to bed in a timely manner, once I’m in bed I’m having a really hard time falling asleep, and then I’m waking up every few hours. In the summer I can always count on Toby telling me dawn is coming, but I’m up way more than his “alarm”–at 2:00, 3:30, 4:30, you get the picture.

So tell me: Do you have apps for sleep that help? I tried a guided yoga nidra meditation but just as I would fall asleep in a long pause, the voice would start up again and wake me up. I also tried the Calm app with nature sounds last night but once it timed out, I was still up in the wee hours.

Maybe I need to listen to this next?
