Oh, it is hectic times we live in! Having watched Theresa May’s speech, I wonder how she gets the energy! Surely she gets menopausal as well!
It has made me wonder…how do people such as herself, and even Maggie Thatcher keep going. I was reading about Maggie Thatcher – she famously only slept 4 hours per night! I am struggling today, because I only had 7 hours sleep last night. The older I get, the more I seem to need! I have become obsessed with making sure I get to bed early, as for some other reason I seem to wake up at dawn EVERY SINGLE DAY! What is with that?
But then, apparently Maggie Thatcher had some type of gene that helped her get through with only 4 hours sleep per night! How fabulous would it be to have 20 hours in the day to utilise!!
Even if I don’t have to go into work, I still wake up early. I lay in bed, and lists start running around my head, and I am so worried I will forget what I have just been thinking about that needs to go onto my list, I feel I need to get up and either start doing said list, or at least write it down onto my list.
Now, I took on a part time job a couple of weeks ago…and somehow, I have now been talked into full time work (this is a great thing of course! I love to feel needed!)…but this does mean my other projects, such as this one and Mags Merchandise will have to be done at odd hours of the day! I am thinking, dawn seems like a good idea! Hubby isn’t up, and I can probably write and sort things out quicker!
Now, I also read that we need less sleep as we get older. I am finding this the reverse! I have found that my sleep tends to be a great deal more broken than it used to be, I wake up more often during the night, but I still need that long sleep every night.
So, what is it? Am I just more tired because my sleep is so broken at night, or is it because I am just getting older?
Why do studies say we need less sleep as we get older? I don’t have the answers sadly, as according to everything I read, the only thing that should be happening during the onset of menopause is insomnia!
Maybe, just maybe, my body is rebelling against menopause!!
Well, I definately don’t have that!
Maybe, it is just down to the fact that I am trying to work as hard as I did when I was younger, but my body just can’t cope with that anymore!
Today, I feel exhausted. I have to run a motivational staff training session this afternoon, and I really just do not feel like it! What to do?
Well, what I always do – crack on, get it done, and hopefully be able to go to bed really early!
