How Do I Sleep?
A long weekend for me to have enough rest from work but not at home and from this platform. Though my head is full that I am confuse to what to write this time. So as I was browsing I saw this in Pinterest, Sleeping Habit this or that? I will answer it as follows.
Lights on or Lights off
When I was young, I prefer to have lights off because I cannot sleep with the bright light in my room. Though when I have move out from home and leave a far to work, I am having some nightmares in my rented place. There I am slowly learning to sleep with the lights on. Now, with my kids too, I need to sleep with lights on.
Light Sleeper or Heavy Sleeper
Hmmm.. I have to think about this, just kidding. I am really a heavy sleeper. Well, for those who not know, a heavy sleeper is the one who have a deep sleep through noise and other disruptions. While the light sleeper is the one who is easily disturbed by external stimuli such as light, smell and noise. Since I sleep soundly, I can say I am a heavy sleep. I can even sleep even the neighborhood are too noisy singing or my kids are playing around, given the condition that I am really tired and wants to rest. Unlike hubby who easily gets distracted and be awaken by such light noise around even in the middle of the night.
Fan or No Fan
Being in a tropical country, no need to ask because I will prefer to have Fan. Yes, its so hot outside and even inside our home at night. How I wish, we can experience winter so we can feel the cold season and we do not have to use Fan or any Air Coolers at home while sleeping.
One pillow or Several Pillows
I cannot sleep with one pillow. I need several pillows around me before I can sleep. Even when I am young, I have the privilege to have more pillows at home because I cannot sleep if I had one only. So when we have visitor who will stay for a night at home, my mother always ask to me to lend some for the visitor. So I have no choice but give some as long as I still have more than 1 pillow with me.
Early in Bed or Late Sleeper
I am a late sleeper because I love to catch up things when the kids are asleep. I mean, I mostly do check here when the kids are sleep because they are too naughty at times when I ignore them talking or doing something. Though when I have a vacation in my grandmother's place, I am early in bed. I do not know but I like sleeping there early even my grandma wants some chat while in bed.
Thin Blankets or Thick Blankets
I grew up having thin blankets not until these last year when my mother sent some warm thick blankets. No matter what season or how's the weather, I love using this warm thick blankets now. Though it is tiring to handwash it and needs to be laundry by experts.
PJ's On or Comfty Clothes
I love pajamas at times. But it doesn't matter with me. Because sleep no matter what I wear. If pajamas are available, I love it especially at rainy season nights. But most of the time, I just wear any comfty clothes at bedtime.
Drink Milk or Drink Water
I love milk very much and I love drinking it anytime of the day since birth. But as I aged, I consider many things especially our wallet. That is why, I do drink water before bed instead of milk. Though at times I do drink milk too.
Socks or No Socks
I prefer no socks so I can feel the coldness of the night. I mean, I just want my barefeet at bedtime because having socks makes me feel uncomfortable and cannot sleep with it.
Back/Stomach or Sleep on Side
I do sleep on side especially now that I have kids. My youngest is always beside me so I have to take on my side with him. However I sleep on my back/stomach when I am younger yet it doesn't give me a nice sleep at all. So now, I am enjoying sleeping on my sides.
And finally music is something that helps me sleep. Yes, I am a music lover and having my favorite songs played at bedtime makes me fall sleep easily. How about you? Do you have some sleeping habits to share?
