(no subject)

In my ongoing strategy to have a better, if less frequent, relationship with insomnia, I've hit on a really good tool for me, which is, in essence, being more zen about not sleeping. I can't always manage it, but it makes my life much, much better if, on those nights when I can't sleep, I don't fret and worry and angst about the fact that I'm not sleeping and tomorrow's going to be hard and groggy. It doesn't make me sleep more, as far as I can tell, but it makes my not-sleeping time more restful. And reminding myself that being tired and groggy for a day isn't the end of the world also improves things, too, because that also turns out to be true.

But now I'm going to see about a nap.
