I have a lot of reading to do on sleep apparently.
A lot of people would ask, what reading is there when it comes to sleeping? You sit down in a bed and fall asleep.
If only it were that straight-forward; My entire life I’ve had nothing however concerns when it comes to sleeping. One of our concerns is that I have to have certain requirements for myself and others to go to sleep, then like it must be dark in our room, however not too dark, there needs to be a small light source. I also need some source of sound as well, enjoy a fan. I also need to sit in a bed, not a couch, not on the floor, nothing else, otherwise I won’t be able to go to sleep. Last, I need a pillow and a cover to go to sleep, otherwise our body won’t realize it’s time to go to sleep, and the cover needs to cover our feet, or I won’t be able to go to sleep as well. On top of all that, I also have sleep apnea, so I have plenty of breathing concerns in the middle of the night. While I knew all of this, I never took time to regularly educate myself on how to sleep better, however that has changed as of recently. I found out that our Heating and A/C equipment could truly impact how I sleep at night. I truly recently changed our Heating and A/C system, and our sleep has gotten worse. As soon as I changed our air conditioning back the way it was, I was able to sleep slightly better each night. I now keep our cooling equipment on most of the night, as it helps myself and others go to sleep, and not wake up from being too hot.
