i have already shared with Patrick the difficulties i have putting into practice some of the suggestions of the DD. Promise, not due to laziness or unwillingness but due to constraints of household logistics. However I have adapted. When i wake, which is usually between 4-5am, instead of trying and trying to get back to sleep, which is actually counter productive and quite stressful, I am going with it, I am breathing and thinking and planning. i am thinking of the pots to drop, the things to confront and do ( acorn jobs) and although I can’t actually get up then ( complicated....if i get up 3 dogs and 3 cats get up....), so i cant immediately make my bed or splash my face ( do that once the menagerie have been sorted), i am actually doing something..and i do think it is helping.
