I feel pretty good after my first week of my sleep restoration project. I am really exited about getting back on track. Next week I will work on getting in bed earlier. I have done better with getting enough sleep. The problem is that I am not getting in bed early enough. I have been napping during the day or sleeping in to make up for the hours I am missing at night. Sleeping all day is not a habit I want to start. Below are the total number of hours that I slept each night and the following day.
Night / Day 1: 8 hours
Night / Day 2: 7 hours
Night / Day 3: 10 hours
Night / Day 4: 13 hours
Night / Day 5: 12 hours
Night / Day 6: 10 1/2 hours
Night / Day 7: 13 hours
Total Hours Slept Week 1: 73.5 hours
Ideal Minimum Hours of Sleep Per Week: 56 hours
I slept 17.5 hours more than the minimum hours we must sleep per week. This may seem like a lot, but it is not. I have a lot of making up to do for the major lack of sleep I have had over the past 2 years. This week was definitely a great start. Now, I am going to call my boyfriend to say good night and go to bed.
