(well if Mr Snoring Neighbour at the very least reduces his volume).
It's key to improving your mental health.
I am a night owl.
Mainly due to my past of poor mental health problems. It's quiet, no one around to judge me, nothing to make me have an anxiety attack, etc.
Usually try to get 7 hours sleep between 1am and 8am - but, my FitBit tells me its broken sleep i.e. "Awake Hours".
Good App to have. I recommend it.
The worst thing about my sleep, is waking up.
Being in a relationship for just over a decade to suddenly having no one by your side in an empty house has been soul destroying for me.
Still really haven't recovered. And it's the main source of my anxiety still.
However this week hasn't been too bad. I'm trying to focus on my job as soon as I wake up as it's my main source of positivity in my life.
Now Autumn is on the horizon, temperatures decreasing, less daylight hours means that people with poor Mental health tend to feel less positive about themselves than they already do - weather/light availability reflects mood in most cases.
Although in the summer I still stayed in my house often when I felt depressed or anxious; - even if it was sunny outside - the forthcoming seasons will see an increase in frequency of not going out.
Anyway, Its a key time for me. I have no choice - this anxiety needs to be dealt with better. Im letting it dictate my life. Hopefully this week sets a precedent.
