Today's Friday Five deals with insomnia and sleep. I like sleep. I have mentioned before that messing with my sleep is not advisable. But I am about to embark on a new adventure with CPE, and my sleep schedule will indeed be messed with!
Are you prone to sleeping challenges? - I definitely snore, but it rarely causes me any problems unless I am sick. When that is the case, I have been known to wake myself up snoring! I do sort of have allergy issues and will often wake up with a stuffy nose. Overall though I can usually sleep pretty soundly.
When you can't sleep, what do you do? - When I'm not tired or can't sleep I will often watch TV or a movie or play on the computer. Occasionally I will read, but most of the time the computer does it for me. I will shop online, surf around, or play "Plants vs. Zombies". I highly recommend it as a way to waste time!
When you do sleep, do you remember your dreams? - I rarely dream or remember my dreams at all, and what I do remember rarely makes sense so they don't stick with me for very long.
Can you share a funny or confusing dream you've had? - I really haven't had any dreams recently that I can remember. Sorry!
When you don't sleep, how do you get through the day? - I am very lucky that, currently, I don't have to report to an office at 8am most of the time, so I can sleep late if I absolutely need it. I usually don't have a ton of trouble once I get going. I don't drink coffee but I will drink a soda of some sort if I need a little kick. If I slow down and start dragging, I will take a nap.
