23. A good night’s sleep
These are few and far between for me usually. This past week I have had a few in a row. It makes all the difference. I am finally getting over this cold and have even made it to the gym a few times. Regardless what happens the rest of the day, I slept through the night and that already starts the day on a high note. Sometimes it is the highlight of the day, but at least it is a good start to the day.
During the end stages of the thesis I wasn’t really sleeping at all. I stopped all caffeine intake after 10am and was a regular gym-goer (the wedding was a big incentive) but Sleep still eluded me most nights. I slept maybe two nights on our five week wedding tour (didn’t make for a happy camper on our last leg with Pete’s family. Sorry about that.)
Sleep and I have a rocky relationship. This past week has been a smooth ride. Let’s see how long it lasts.
