View Full Version : "too much sleep" Problem
12-16-2009, 11:20 PM
I have written in other post here about my lifestyle changes. I've quit alcohol four Months ago and cooked foods over two Months ago. My wife and I used to party a lot.
We now stay at home most of the time because its not as much fun going out. We also don't watch TV very much. We play hard during the day and on the computer for a few hours at night.
We're finding our self's going to bed at 8 pm because we are bored.
The raw food is giving us extra energy, which makes us need less sleep.
I find, I feel great when I get 6 hours of sleep. Well, when you go to sleep at 8:30 pm, I wake up at 2:30 am. We are traveling in a Motorhome and what do you do when you are wide awake at 2:30 am. I usually get up and play on the computer for a while, then I go back to bed, because again, I'm bored and don't want to walk the dog at 4 am in the morning.
I finally go back to sleep, then, when I get up in the morning, I feel awful.
I'm groggy, headache, etc.
I've started spending more time on my photography, but still have night hours left over.

we are bored
Perhaps the real issue is: Lack of focus, lack of purpose problem...
Or, here's a Scenario: 230am... you can't sleep, the Moon is out. You get out of bed and do some stretches - then take a Moonlit walk, all alone, listening to the breeze and the cold silence of the night. Your body becomes more in tune with the sounds of the insects chirruping and humming in the bushes alongside the road, and your shoes crunching on the gravel. You slip your shoes off, feel the cold ground beneath your toes... who knows, not even you - maybe it's been years since you've felt the earth touch your toes. Suddenly you realise you've been breathing with your mouth closed, maybe for years, too... and you open your mouth and draw a breath from the Night, grateful that the Night is willing to give itself to any Stranger in need of this... this solitude, this chill air, this wane Moonlight, this Freedom, this Bliss.
Choose your own adventure.
It's your Life. No one else is gonna live it for you.

you could also start playing some board games, reading books, meditating, doing yoga (since you have a small space and it's perfect for small spaces)... learn to play an instrument...
:) etc etc etc

I love not sleeping much. There's tons of things to do. Maybe you should consider exploring new interests. Or take up exercising and other physical activities. Even better, interact with each other more. :)

I understand sometimes it is Not safe to be walking at 2:30 in the morning, with the Moon out or not.
Just Force yourself to Stay awake a couple more hours (Try sneaking in a "Nap" if possible during the day) going to bed at 10:30. It's 3:16 in the a.m. for me today and I'm up posting because I fell asleep too early, so I'm always up posting late. I watch some early News, off to the Gym, come back home, sometimes get an hour of sleep and My day begins.
You'll figure out how it will work for you My Friend.

Yup...seems like there is alot more exertion needed with all that energy. Revvell said it well in your other post, you might just need to move. Run a marathon. Get out and exert!!
Motor home? Are you breathing exhaust fumes all day while travelling. Are their fumes or chems in your sleeping /driving space?

there are ways for ya'll to use that energy in the motorhome & will probably help you sleep better;). Congrats on the stopping the alcohol!!

Congratulations on abstaining from alcohol and for going RAW!!
I'm sorry about your sleeping problem. DEFINITELY try to spend nice, quality time with your wife! Surprise her with something you can both do together in the evening. If you're religious, do a Bible study with her. Board games were also a great suggestion. My husband and I often read philosophy when we're together and talk about it after we read it, and after that we appreciate the time with each other even more.
Or for the next night, suck it up for a few more hours, stay awake, and get your sleeping back on schedule!! Good luck!!
