So…back in March I got a Fitbit. For years I said I would never get a fitness tracker (the idea seemed absurd—like it could become too addictive), but since I know for a fact that I’m more sedentary at work than I used to be, I (fit)bit the bullet.
So far, I’m loving my brand spanking new Alta HR* and to my surprise, it’s not as addicting as I thought.
I don’t even use it for meals or water tracking (although I should for the water—I’ve been slacking), and while I do pay close attention to my steps (or lack thereof, lately), the most eye-opening information has actually been my sleep cycles.
I sleep like crap!
I’ve always been a “light” sleeper, but I’ve found lately that I am barely cycling into “deep” sleep. No wonder I’m so damn tired all the time.
Now that Bazooka is sleeping like a dream in his big boy bed, I have no reason to wake up throughout the night.
Since I know that my sleep struggles affect my anxiety and general wellbeing, I’m making an effort to improve my slumber.
