What is it about the month of June that makes my body not want to sleep? Last year, right around this time, I had about two or three weeks where I couldn't sleep. I would get about 3 or 4 hours a night, if I was lucky. We went on vacation and on June 26th checked in to a hotel, where I slept a full nights sleep for the first time in weeks. Maybe it was the bed. Maybe it was the (colder than I keep it in my own home) air conditioner. Maybe it was the long drive and other activities during the day. I don't know. What I do know is that point on I was able to get my sleep patterns back to normal.
Flash Forward to this June and I'm in the same spot. Yes, Texas (as well as a lot of the country) is in a heat wave of over 100F during the day and not getting below 80F at night. I do keep it colder in my house this year than I did last year. I've completely cut caffeine out of my days. I've even gone as far as to take a PM medication but don't want to make that a habit.
As I write this, it's 4:53am and I've been up for an hour. Sigh.
I'm not going on vacation until the middle of September this year so I hope I don't have to wait until then to get my sleep back.
