I really do wonder to what degree globally people have been sleeping worse. Personally, the number of fully restful nights I've had in the past eighteen months can be counted on one hand. I used to not dream almost every night and not wake up? Now I have long, vivid dreams almost every night and sleeping through is a win.

    I gotta get back in the habit of reading. Just reviewing my comments when I first joined Hubski make me feel as though I've gotten dumber.

Same here... I did get through a few books and can attest that starting with fun & short is the way to go. But the ol' habit is gone, and I miss it.

In spite of the rougher sleep, I’ve added an extra mattress topper, white noise (via fan) and an eye-mask have been a nominal help. The topper was the biggest bang for my buck.

Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson’s how I’m starting out. It’s a comedic telling of struggling with mental health. Lawson has a knack for witty, conversational way of writing that compliments hilarious stories.
