Catch 22. Too tired to exercise, though exercise would help me sleep!

Published November 22, 2011 by Crystal

My current predicament is seeing me wake up at regular intervals through the night, and last night it was 2, 3 and the 4:30. I’d made sure I’d completed all my tasks so I wouldn’t wake worrying about them but alas, my cunning brain, and those horrid gremlins found something else to stress about, and well it was a big bundle of mess.
So today I’m really struggling to do anything, let alone move my butt and get some endporhins whizzing round! I am stuck in a catch 22. I know if I actually did something, I’d no doubt sleep far better tonight. But because I’m sleeping so badly at the moment my energy surges are far between and few.
And of course, it’s winter. The winter grumbles start. The weather isn’t inspiring, the house is chilly (except for the odd hot flush), and all in all it’s pretty dismal.
But I need a plan. I need to set about planning some sort of table and start fitting in different forms of exercise, not simply because I must and it’s good for me, but because I know I always feel better after exercise. I always feel like I’ve completed something worth while, and I know my body is happy. And like I’ve said before, it doesn’t have to be hours in a gym on a treadmill, it’s far better to do the things we love. So, maybe it’s time to set up some sort of routine for myself. Time to start fitting in an hour or half hour every day, and make it a variety.
What do you get up to? What do you love to do? What should I try because I might love it?
