Sleep and Solstice

Mother Nature came through for the Solstice, it’s beautiful today. Sun has been a rare commodity for the past, oh I don’t know, NINE MONTHS. Oregonians would never survive on solar power…we’d be in the dark most of the year.

My carpets look amazing……check them out. The Beasts’ trail of drool is gone from the stairs—you can’t even tell animals live here! The carpets are so stunning that I need to scrub walls and baseboards now…there’s always a downside, isn’t there??

I have good news regarding my sleep issues though. Sharing what I’ve learned may help others avoid similar problems, otherwise, I’d spare you the details :)

I wear a bite guard at night—not very romantic, but it eliminates teeth clenching by slightly altering lower-jaw placement. It’s not even uncomfortable—I’ve been sleeping better than I have in years. I have less neck tension too, which means fewer headaches—clenching starts a domino effect of upper body aches… I haven’t been to the sleep clinic yet—they're inundated by sleepless people…

Now that you're caught up on the important things in life...Happy Solstice!
