This Friday find is related to something I just love...sleeping! I came across this on Pinterest. I couldn't get the pin to load on my blog so I had to do this freestyle.
I tried it last night and it seemed to be pretty correct. I timed when I went to bed, giving myself the 14 minutes to fall asleep. I sleep pretty soundly and don't wake up easily. Little bumps in the night and things like the phone ringing rarely wake me up once I am asleep. But I heard the phone ringing this morning. When I looked at the clock, I was right at the end of a sleep cycle (according to this website). I think this might be why I actually heard it. And I woke up alert and not groggy or cranky-this a big deal! And, it was earlier than I would normally have gotten up on a non work day (I took this whole week off, yay!) but I was wide awake and feeling good, so I got up. Yes, I got up. This is not normal. I like to sleep. And I really like to sleep in. I had nothing pressing to do this morning so I could have just gone back to sleep. So I am going to keep trying this, it's really cool that you can enter what time you need to get up and it will tell you the best times to go to bed.

Do you have trouble getting up in the morning? Do you wake up groggy and it takes a while to get going? You might be waking up mid cycle. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
