I'm pretty sure we've all had those sleepless nights where we toss and turn just hoping for a few good hours of rest before our alarm completely kills our vibe. That used to be me every single night! I would consistently wake up 3-4 times per night and have the hardest time getting back to sleep.
Surprisingly enough, about 6 months ago, I started sleeping seamlessly through the night! I was so amazed that my body even let that happen once, let alone on a nightly basis. I started seriously wondering what caused this drastic shift in my sleep pattern and started taking notes.
I realized that blogging has really changed my days around. I'm working longer hours into the night, going to more events during the week and drinking a ton more water...(Confusing, huh?)
Something doesn't quite add up there and I'm still bewildered at my body's reaction to my newfound daily life, but I wanted to tell you guys what I do when I'm ready for bed that put a strange halt to my multiple potty breaks and consistent back aches.
