The value of blackout curtains should not be underestimated.
In the past week I realised that my sleep is struggling to catch up with my daytime routine.
I find that after sundown I need a few hours for my brain to catch up to the fact that it’s time to go to bed. With sundown just before 10pm, that means I get to bed around midnight, a bit later than my usual, which would be OK if I didn’t naturally wake up at 6am or earlier.
This time however, I planned ahead: before getting into bed I made sure that my blackout curtains are completely closed, so this morning when I woke up, I could do the usual pottering around, and then get back into bed for a lovely lie in! Success!
Who would have thought I would have to have a battle with the sun!
Be kind. Stay safe.
