Hold me I’m scared! Tales of my nightmares & other neurotic mishaps.
This week on the blog I’ve been focusing a lot on wellness and I’m happy to announce that I have something really cool coming to the blog next week, but you’ll just have to wait and see.
Today though I want to focus on another one of those “story time” posts that y’all seem to like. So here’s whats up. I haven't been sleeping lately. It’s 3 hours here, 5 hours there and I am tired AF. When I do get to sleep I’m having nightmares. Like ridiculous, I’m-afraid-to-admit-them-out-loud nightmares about weird ass shit.
Anyway, after a week straight of stupid scary dreams and waking up repeatedly in the middle of the night, I finally told Geoff and Diana (My bff. Hi, you guys should know who she is by now.). I gave them vivid details about all of the weird dreams that I’ve been having. They both said the same thing, I’m probably anxious and stressed about something. The more I thought about it, the more that I realized that they’re probably right. I’ve been working really hard on expanding WoahStyle into a lifestyle brand. I’ve been analyzing my blog hits and everything is going in the right direction but with that, I’m putting in a lot of hours and I don’t know when to shut my brain off. In yesterdays post, 10 Tips to RELAX and De-Stress right now, I confessed that I’m the kind of person who gets stressed out easily. Trust me, it suuuuucks but it’s who I am. So I guess while I’ve been feeling alright in the day time, I’m subconsciously stressed out. Then I go to sleep and have nightmares about vampires and zombies and the end of the fucking world. OMG! It’s so twisted I know.
So here’s what I’m doing to keep the boogie man away. First up, I’m trying to eat better. Take away on a nightly basis is no beauno for my body and my mental health. I’m also thinking it would be a good idea to start writing down my nightmares. Like a dream journal, except more dark?! LOL I’ve always been big horror films, so it could be fun to write short stories about the weirdo scenarios I dream about. (BTW - There’s a difference between horror and gore. I can’t stand gore films like Saw, they make me queasy.) Finally, if dream journaling and eating better don’t work, I always reach for my good friend melatonin. Oh yes. I keep a bottle by my bedside because I’ve always had a shit time getting to sleep.
Now I have some questions for you guys. Do you also have vivid dreams that you can recall clearly when you get up? Geoff can’t remember his dreams for the life of him and he’s always surprised that I can remember so much. Also, do you guys have any tips for me on how to get a better night’s sleep? I’m grasping for straws at this point so any advice you have would be greatly appreciated! As always, thanks for reading and if you like this post, make sure you share the images on Pinterest!
