Focus on Consistency #5 – Sleep
The purple arm chair is my favorite resting place. If I’m not careful, it becomes my bed. The problem with that is – I’m sleeping sitting up all night.
I have consistently fallen asleep in a chair and managed to stay there all night for many years (not every night, but at least 2-3 times per week)!
I believe it started during my undergraduate college years. There use to be a laptop on my lap all night as well.
Habits are tough to break unless you consistently consciously work on it. This is something I must work on.
My husband has no problem knowing when it’s time to go to bed.
He and my son have tried to wake me up and encourage me to go to bed. Unfortunately, once I fall asleep in that chair – it gets too good to get up and move! I am extremely testy if you attempt to wake me.
We know that sleep is very important to your overall health and well-being.
Can you get a good night’s sleep in a sitting position?
According to the article, “Can You Get a Good Night’s Rest in Your Airplane Seat? The science of sit-sleep” – Yes.
As long as you’re able to get comfortable and recline slightly, you’ll sleep as well sitting up as you would lying down.
Personally, I have decided to be more consistent with going to bed when I start to feel tired.
Does anybody else have this habit? What do you think about it? Please comment and share!
