Take my last relationship as an example, my boyfriend and I break up because of my impatience. When we chat on the phone, sometimes he will reply me for a long time, or suddenly disappear. At that moment, I will regard it as he doesn’t care about me, so I get angry. However, he will coax and explain to me at the beginning, but if I still don’t forgive him, he would think that I was unreasonable. After we separate, I’m not in myself for a whole month, even stay at the bed for a day without eating anything, and it really influences my life, especially my study.
Since my family has an issue with obesity I try to eat whole foods as much as possible. My family growing up had a tendency to eat out a lot, but now that I am older I try to avoid processed foods. Anytime I have the chance to walk further by either parking further away at stores, taking the stairs, or now playing Pokemon Go, I take the opportunity. This is also on top of regular exercise. I take mental health very seriously along with alcoholism; depression also runs in my family.
On most nights I do homework before I fall asleep and homework is very stressful and tends to make me overthink everything. When I am stressed I do not sleep well and this sleep study supported that. Some nights I would take Emergan-Zzzz which is a sleep aid that has melatonin in it, which helps relax me and helps me fall asleep, but does not determine how well I end up sleeping. That is one thing that really surprised me throughout this sleep project. Melatonin helps me fall asleep, but does not help me sleep any better because I did not wake up very refreshed most night that I took it.
Even though she slept at morning, she cannot get proper sleep because sometime she needs to go to market, most of the time her roommate make noise or invite some friends. Because of these things she always looks tired and sleepy. As we know she works at night, she drank lots of energy drink. She has no time to eat at home as no one cook food at home. She depends on the fast food which have lots of calories.
...I hope to continue exercising and slowly decrease the amount of sweets I eat each week. I would really like to be able to watch the news each day. Maybe when I move out of the dorms and no longer share a television with a roommate this will be easier to do. I would like to use more massage therapy. I think this would really help the neck pain I commonly experience and headaches that result from it.
Which is obviously ironic because nightmares are not usually associated with fond memories, or anything happy. Ever since my freshman year of high school I’ve had problems sleeping. I would stay up too late watching Skins UK and other television shows or I would hype myself up with caffeine and attempt to finish homework well into the early hours of the morning. Even once I stopped doing both of those things on a regular basis, and then very rarely, I still have had issues falling asleep and then staying asleep. I tend to find myself jerked awake at night by nightmares that I’m not usually able to remember.
That amount of sleep was not the greatest amount, but it was more than most of my friends and family back home. However, as I furthered myself in my academic career and got more involved on campus, I have noticed issues sleeping and going to bed at a decent hour. Consequently, I have had trouble concentrating, feeling in good health, and feel exhausted as begin and end my day. I am one of the 35-40% of people who feel excessive drowsiness during the day (Ferracioli-Oda). Even when I do get enough sleep, I have to sacrifice half of my day, because I sleep in way too late, making me feel wide awake when it comes time for bed the next night.
I guess society’s expectations had blinded me. Of course, hindsight is always 20/20; as I reexamined my life as of that far, I could see that it had always been with me. So with the fatigue, stress, pain and illness I called it quits just a few games before the end of the season. During the next few years, I slowly limped around school, and slept through many hours of the day. I had already finished growing, so it made no sense that I slept as much as I did.
Our sleeping habits were never quite the same because he would stay up all night practically come to bed when I was waking up to get ready for work. This didn 't bother me before, but all of a sudden now it did. We did not work day and night shifts. We both worked during the day and he just chose to stay up late. It would cause us to argue about it.
Every moment that I did something irrelevant with study I felt guilty. I couldn’t watch TV, and have relaxing time lying on my bed nor. I started turning on the radio while I was studying. Listening to the radio enabled me to study and have joy at the same time. It broke solitude of midnight, refreshed me to wake up, and it helped me remain sitting at the desk.
