How long do you suppose it takes to catch up on sleep deprivation? I’m asking because my sleep pattern just hasn’t returned to what it was pre-pandemic. I am someone who never needed an alarm, I would wake up between 6 and 6:30 without fail every day. It was super convenient and I’m a morning person so getting up early worked pretty well for me.
These days? I blow right past 6 and regularly wake up after 8! I feel like I’ve wasted the whole morning when that happens and yet I haven’t done anything to change the cycle. I know it’s partly that I can get away with it since I’m still not working my previous schedule – I’m still working from him a bit although I am going in much more than I was. And I can’t help but wonder if it’s partly because of the sleep I missed when Dale was in the hospital. Or maybe it’s just avoiding the start of the day when the day holds things that aren’t always great . . . the pandemic, the news, the chores . . .
How have you been sleeping since the world changed back in March?
