I haven't been sleeping well. I wake up with sore shoulders (due to how I'm sleeping?) and fatigue. I seem to be tired more than anything else so far this week.

I've been reading back issues of Vogue, just tearing through them. I think I've read four in the last two weeks. I'd given up reading it, but never canceled my subscription. Now I find the intensity of its focus on things that don't matter kind of captivating, like a look into another world.

I'm sure both the shoulders and fatigue are tied up in your sleep cycle. Have you done any meditation or yoga? Helps me when I'm in an insomniac phase.

I don't know if I'm technically insomniac at the moment, since I'm falling asleep fairly easily: I'm just waking up every few hours, for no obvious reason. Sometimes I wake up, feeling like I could very well seize the day, and then notice it's 3:30 am. And I need that sleep: I'm yawning and stretching all day, trying to energize myself.

I'd love to go to a yoga class, but haven't been able to find one at a time I can go. But it's been a while since I looked: I should look again.

I sometimes have that same problem - the sore shoulders and fatigue when I wake, not the obsession with Vogue. It could be the way you sleep. If you're a side sleeper that can cause shoulder and neck pain. The fatigue could be tossing and turning.

I recently read that you should sleep with your head pointing south to align it with the Earth's magnetic poles. Who knows if it actually works, though!

I often sleep on my side. Maybe that's what's causing the pain. And I'm definitely tossing and turning.

Ha! I should sleep with my head on the foot of the bed, then -- my bed is pointed north!

*hugs* on the not sleeping well. I'd put that and the sore shoulders down to stress as often tension ends up in your neck and shoulders. This used to work for me to help me sleep before I had so many distractions in my life.

Definitely true for me: I had a massage therapist once exclaim that my upper back was like a rock! But it's true that there've been new stressors lately.

This used to work for me to help me sleep before I had so many distractions in my life.

Thanks for the link!
