Burning out.

jacket: japan    l   shorts: walmart    l    booties: aldo

So husband and I did a little experiment last night. Lately we've been feeling tired... very tired. And we don't know why. We've been getting our usual 7 hours of sleep [sleep by 11, wake up by 6] which is a pretty normal sleep pattern for us. So last night, we decided to go to bed just a little bit earlier. I'm talking 9:30 early. 9:30 guys! Who does that anymore? But this morning when the alarm went off, we were still our usual tired and groggy selves. Poo... so unless any of you have some suggestions for us, my conclusion is simply this: we're old.

  1. I did watch it! It was very interesting. Perhaps a bit extreme, but they do a wonderful job persuading the audience.

    Also, you look adorable! That coat is so cute.

  7. I saw this whole sleep cycle system somewhere and it recomends you go to sleep based off of 1hr and 1/2 REM cycles? Random I know, but I found that it really works for me! So instead of 7 hours you should be doing 7 1/2 or else you wake in the middle of a cycle. Random & odd I know, but worth a try :)

  16. try going to bed at 10 instead of 11. 10 to 6 is 8 hours-the suggested amount. It might helps-and if not, vitamins & exercise give you more energy! (I sound like a doctor)! haha

  17. Age might not be the only factor. Could be diet, stress, sleep quality and a myriad of other things. :P I really like your jacket!

  34. Check what you are eating (and not eating), drinking, when you have your dinner (late ones make you feel tired in the morning) and your stress levels. Also worth checking vit D levels - ask your doctor for a test.

  42. I think your body was just not used to getting the extra sleep. You know how you're supposed to take a 15min nap and it refreshes you while a 30min nap makes you groggy? I think it's a similar concept ;)

  54. Very cute outfit! & try switching up your sheets, pillows to even your mattresses- makes a world of a difference.

    You could also try drinking a cup of warm tea, helps me sleep soundly <3

  61. My advice: do sport!
    Exercise gives energy
    to your body which
    makes you more awaken
    and fit c:

    You look great btw,
    love the comfy jacket!

  64. Try winding down at 9:30, make some tea, hot bath, read a little (something fun and non-school related...) instead of TV and maybe light a candle. This will help your body go into relax mode. It helps me feel more rested in the AM, instead of going non-stop all day and then falling asleep from sheer exhaustion. Let me know if it works and I am loving this jacket too!!
