BIG LIFE EVENTS will disturb your sleep without a doubt for most of us including me. The night before I went to my hearing for Full Professor I expectedly tossed and turned most of the night. I accepted the reality of the situation. I was in state of hyper-arousal because I had to be ready for this BIG DAY…actually BIG 30 Minutes! Although I did not sleep enough or sleep well, I was not worried about this nor was I upset about this normal response to a BIG STRESSOR.
Sleep Tip #88: Expect and accept that worry a BIG LIFE EVENT will disturb your sleep…temporarily.
