how to not be a light sleeper: a self-help tutorial by a girl who has no idea what she's talking about and is therefore blogging at 1:02 am


I think there was a time in my life that I wasn't such a light sleeper.
Maybe in the womb?
I think my mom would disagree.

It definitely got worse my first time working at summer camp.
I was spending the night in the cabin with the girls. And as the counselor, it was my responsibility to help home sick girls, girls who were throwing up, girls who were crying for no reason, girls who were crying over missing WWF Smackdown (really happened, people.).
Oh, and I also had to make sure the girls weren't pranking each other.
I woke up to every noise. And every light.
And now, I still do.

So, here I am. Blogging at 1:06 am, wishing I were asleep.
I googled "how to not be a light sleeper" and found some semi-helpful answers.
Ear plugs, white noise, eye mask.

I tried the eye mask thing once.
It didn't really help because I could still tell that there was light in the room, through the mask.
Oh yeah, plus my roommate laughed at me when she saw that I had it on.
That's another thing I don't sleep through. Laughter.

Here's the link to the most helpful article I found.
I'll probably try a white noise app.

Are you a deep sleeper or a light sleeper? Do you have any suggestions for me?
