Sleep disorder


Of late my schedule has become too erratic. Though it is not the first time this is happening to me, i am really beginning to hate it.


I feel sleepy at all the wrong hours and when it is time to sleep (for normal people) I am wide awake. Last night I went to bed at a good time, which was 11:30 pm. But something was different from all the normal individuals who sleep around that hour everyday. I had taken an anti-allergic pill. Good! The effect was so good that allergy vanished and I slept for around 15-16 hours (believe me).



I have been trying hard to get back the schedule to normal. But it's not happening. So, now something drastic needs to be done.



....I wont sleep till I am dead tired.

....I will not sleep at all if it is beyond 2:00 am.

....Some form of exercise has to happen everyday.



I just hope it works. I am really fed up. :(

Agar sangat ka asar hona hota, to humaari sangat pehle bhi buri nahi thi. Ye to pehli baar mere antar-mann se awaaz aayi hai ki "Sudhar jaao bachcha" :)

@ JC
Whoever told you that i have assignments to finish, did not lie to you, sach mein. Just that it was not told as to what time the assignment should be done. Now that i m punishing myself by not sleeping, it is good that i do something constructive.

Good luck in your efforts.

I have been trying and trying and trying to solve exactly this problem. One of the various attempts involved following the guidelines you mention, except that the 2am was replaced by 6am :)
Was able to follow it for all of one day. But I think it is doable. I just didn't do it right.

Am still trying.

If you figure out a way to solve your sleep problem do post about it. It would be useful.

I will surely let you know if i succeed in this mission. I have just slept for 2 hrs in the last 24 hrs. Have been waiting for night to fall on bed and sleep.

I have repaired my screwed up cycle.. earlier I used to sleep late... now I'm an early riser. I wake up at 600hrs and go to bed at 2300 hrs. I beleive your sleeping cycle can easily be repaired if you completely distract yourselves from whatever work you do in late night. Just say to yourselves "I'll close my working hours shutter at 2100 hrs" Stop whatever you do. Dine nicely and then go to bed.
If you were in west you would have maintained this cycle. Now come to India and try to sleep normally... ususally this adjustment takes hardly few days, even if you have stayed for a very long time in the West... So why you peole are taking this much time. You have to try harder and harsher....





I still beleive in the beauty of infinity......

A poem from childhood...

"Long legged Italy, kicked poor Sicily
In the middle of Mediterranean Sea.
Austria was Hungary
Took a bit of Turkey
Fried it in Japan
Dipped it in Greece...."

I remember only this much. This poem was my first attempt at learning the names of these countries and locating them on the map of the world. And I thought Austria and Australia were same. :-)

It's time to confirm that I was wrong at that point of time, some twenty years back...

Healing and conquering myself, one tiny step at a time

"It is not the mountains we conquer but ourselves."
-Edmund Hillary
Two years back, when I had set out on my first trek in the Himalayas, I did not know what I was getting into. It began as a quest, a search for the place that I was dreaming about for the last few years. Valley of Flowers in Uttarakhand did turn out to be straight out of my dream and I still cannot believe it. I remember sitting on that large asymmetrical rock for more than an hour, looking at the snow-clad mountains and scribbling in my diary as the cool wind blew in my face and the sun tried its best to warm my fingers. 
Less than a year later, I went back to the mountains and it was then that I realized that I was meant to go back, not once or twice or thrice, I just have to be there every once in a while. May be that recurring dream had a bigger purpose than calling me to the Valley of Flowers. May be someone up there knew that it was just a beginning. And now that it has started, it shall go on till my…

Something has changed

I was talking to this friend after a long time and the first two questions he asked me were, 'What movie did you watch last weekend?' and 'Where are you traveling to next?'. I refused to answer his questions till he first asked me how I was. We laughed and he said that he keeps seeing my updates on movies and travel and wonders when he will find time to do that.

I have always loved to travel. I remember once my parents asked my brother and me to make a wishlist of things that we wanted. I had added 'Trip to Delhi' to that list. Then came a time when all the focus was on board exams and competitive exams, and the joy of traveling was forgotten because it mostly meant going to a new city to give some exam. 
It all restarted once I came to Mumbai, 13 years back. Before I landed in this city I had turned into a shy, timid girl whose friends used to help her cross the road and get a rickshaw for her so that she doesn't have to talk to the rickshaw-wala. I can&#…
