A year of wellbeing

I’m a fan of trying to live your best life although I’m probably the worst person to take advice on such matters, which probably makes it pointless that I’ve put together the blogs I wrote on wellbeing this year. Most of the blog posts seem to be about sleep and not having time, I’m not sure where I get my inspiration. The good thing for you is that each blog post is really short so they won’t eat into your time. Enjoy

Where does time go?

Have you heard of ‘Timeboxing’?

Do you use a small fork?

Screen time to bedtime.

Fiscal planning.

A flaw in my system.

Humming.

Inserting the toilet roll

How long before bed do you brush your teeth?

Aims and aspirations.

How long before bed do you brush your teeth?

I read an article about sleep that suggested brushing your teeth an hour before bed helps you get a better night’s sleep. Does anyone do that? Surely brushing your teeth is one of the last things you do before bed. The piece didn’t say why this is the case, my thinking is it gets your mind believing sleepy time is near. Although my friend on twitter reckons it’s because brushing your teeth wakes you up a bit, so perhaps I’m no nearer to knowing why. I doubt I’ll be doing it anyway because I know as soon as I brush my teeth I’ll want something to eat.

One thing I did find, is that reading articles on sleep made me feel tired, the only problem with that is I was at work whilst reading them, which is not ideal.

Feel free to let me know if you go early with the brushing of your teeth and does it aid your sleep. Contact me via the comments button or @anunknowncomic Cheers.

Screen time to bedtime.

In an attempt to get better quality sleep (I can get to sleep quite easily but I wake a few hours later) I’ve decided to increase the time between using a screen (computer/phone) and me going to bed.

One problem with this is the only time I have to do my own thing is after my boy goes to bed and I go to bed, a time that is getting shorter & shorter. It’s also a time that is also filled with eating dinner, loading the dishwasher and making lunch/ironing clothes for work.

Having said that, the work I currently do in this time has never led to anything so maybe it won’t be too much of a sacrifice.

Feel free to let me know the amount of time you leave between last using a screen and going to bed. Cheers.

Am I ill?

I’m not a big fan of weighing myself (I don’t think it’s a good indicator of health) but the other day my boy wanted me to get on the scales and like most things with him it’s easier to do what he wants than not. (good parenting)

Once on the scales I realised I’m probably the lightest I’ve ever been as an adult. This made me wonder if I am ill.

My weight loss could of course be down to me not drinking much lager these days or the fact I go to bed just after 10pm so rarely have supper.

I had previously presumed my general level of lethargy was down to me being tired, something that could be rectified by a few good nights of sleep (easier said than done). Now I’m not so sure.

With this in mind, am I ill or just tired & underweight?

Should you wake a sleeping baby?

The week before the events in the previous blog post, this happened.

The baby was coughing in his sleep so I woke him to give him some medicine. Did he a) go straight back to sleep or b) was he still awake more than an hour later? Answers on a postcard to it’s always answer b with these kind of questions.
