Day turns into night then morning – suffering with insomnia in the Philippines

insomnia.jpg picture by CassieBlack_2008Its a bit of a strange occurrence which happens to me literally every day as I struggle to sleep at night. Some days I have the catnap affect where you are literally so tired you close your eyes without thinking and wake up with about five hours passing. Was it initially jetlag when I arrived in December that never went away? I don’t think so.. To be honest my work patterns throughout my life have always been long hours because I like to be busy. I am not one to sit at home and watch TV. I like to be working I like to be feeling like I am doing something. When I am doing nothing I feel like I’m cheating myself which is part of the problem. The other is getting all or goals for this year back on target. We have had a few things go wrong that set us back financially a few months that have created a domino affect. This in turn has got me wondering how do you recover three months out of thin air?

Business ventures have been a lot more difficult than expected lately as I was hoping to have got at least three off the ground on top of the existing ones but have found the reliability of many people unreliable and often a waste of time and effort. I don’t have the key to all the solutions but some of the stuff I can only describe as people being lazy as its all setup. It’s meetings a bit of fluffing up and the business is set to run on supply and delivery. Not a big earner but a lot of these minor ventures soon add up. The other thing that is important is the more it adds up the more you can reshuffle and invest where things need improving right? Well not lately I seem to be going slightly backwards every day and now going to be doing more reshuffling to get things the way they should run. Didn’t say it would be easy but it will get there. The thoughts though and working out solutions are rolling round my head 24/7 another reason sleep is a luxury unless I really am literally falling asleep.

    Take the sleeping Aid Melatonin along with a glass of red wine before bedtime or warm milk. U will have the luxury of sleeping then. You can get it at the healthfood store with all the vitamins and stuff.
