Help.I Am Loosing Sleep

Last Update: January 12, 2019

Is it only me or there are some of you out there who has been loosing sleep?

When I started WA, I just quit my job. I was contemplating to do a lot of things as I just freed myself of rigid work schedules. I knew I have a lot of chores to tackle and kids issues to handle but as aggressive as I am, I jumped right into WA because I do not want to loose the opportunity.

But little did I know that the touch of my OCDness and multitasking habits are going to be in the way. Just to think of a topic drives me insane. I have filled my Iphone note with ideas and thoughts. My journal is crammed with random thoughts also.

It upsets me whenever I see misspellings and wrong grammars. I am now irritated because I just noticed my widget or sidebar is off! (How do I fix that by the way)?

I am loving WA and I am very excited with all the knowledge but with that comes a lot of challenges. Some days life gets in the way....which is expected as I have a house full of kids (I am exagerating, I only have 4).

So to those of you out there who can offer suggestions, feel free to drop by and share some tips. And oh by the way, I have a bad habit of being hard on myself too! So that might be the answer to my issue. But just in case, your thoughts might be helpful.

Thank ya'll! I wish everybody the best!

Always keep in mind of your goals they are what drive me but I do find myself getting fully addicted but I also keep in mind that if am not getting the sleep that I need am I working to my full potential? Well I believe we all know that answer. Make sure you get the sleep you need your wheels still need that grease.

Sweet Dreams!!!!!

Thank you. You are very right, we all know the answer I’m just being impatient.

I appreciate your reminders. I’m off to bed now.


Sweet dreams!

Hi Nida,
Having to take care of 4 kids is a lot in itself! Just try not be so hard on yourself. I know I'm one to talk because if I can't figure something out it drives me crazy! And of course I don't stop until I figure it out, but if I can't then I will ask for help.

If I have trouble sleeping a lot of times I will read. I find that reading helps me to relax. Try to get off of your computer earlier in the night and that will help you as well. I know if I stay on it past 10:00 PM I have problems winding down (that's where the reading comes in to help me relax and get sleepy).

Take care,
Donna :)

Thank you Donna. I read too before bed but lately with WA it subsided some so I guess I better get back to it and calm down.

You take care too.

I know how it is to be hard on yourself... I am the same way, but you have to remember to treat yourself well as you would a friend... Don't get upset when you make an error or have a day when you can't get to everything. You are only one person... A great, smart, capable ambitious one, I am sure... Take things one step at a time.

Try not to let the little stuff get in the way. Work on positive self-talk. You don't need to beat yourself up. And, yes, to me "only 4" is a houseful of kids. That has to keep you busy.

I find I get stumped in here sometimes. Then I just do the bulldog thing and worry the problem until I find the answer. People on here are very helpful when it comes time to solve problems.

Just keep truckin'. I think you are doing fine.

Accepting that we are not going to get everything done by yesterday can be really empowering.

When our ideas machine is running hot embrace it, because the will come a time when you will hit the doldrums.

The key can be converting, those ideas into content or action.

Just some thoughts, that work for me.

Best wishes, for a creative and successful year, Nida.
