Sleeping

I have been out of work once again, so I had planned on waking up early everyday just as if I were going to head out the door to work but my plan was to get up early have some coffee, take a shower get dressed and come to the computer and start working here but it worked for a little while. Then all of the sudden no matter how early I set my alarm I fall back asleep again and then I have to wake up and get my husbands coffee and make his lunch and wait for him to be done in the shower I don't know what happened there I used to be able to get up before him and have time to start work here on line, maybe it is all this heat we are having I don't know but when I have to go outside I feel drained from the overbearing heat!! I have to go out there every other day to water the yard and plants too, that takes some time away from here too and I have signed up for so many sites trying to make as much as I can until I can return to work and I am finding it difficult, I like Pay Pal because it is quick but I just signed up for Alert Pay and it seems to take forever!! But some of the sites I am on only accept Alert Pay that is why I opened it there, Maybe it is al the stress from not working and worrying about everything?

It sounds as if you may not be sleeping well, so you're still tired when the alarm goes off? If you have time during the day, why not try taking a short nap? That might be enough to help you wake up as early as you'd like. Were you used to being more physically active at your job? Sitting at a computer all day is hard on us. Our bodies don't get the exercise they need, yet we're tired at the end of the day. The kind of tired we need to sleep well is from getting exercise, not the lack of it.

Yes I was just sitting at the computer all day when I was at my job and on the phone all day long but at my breaks and lunch I would walk around the building a couple of times if it wasn't too hot outside.

I agree when you can't sleep you may as well be making some sort of money even if it's just pennies. I will experience something similar soon when the kids go back to school about getting up so early and then I'll go to bed ealier too. I hate being awake with worry.

When it’s hot it’s not always possible to have a good night’s sleep so we tend to wake up tired to more heat which will drain us even more! I appreciate how you feel; sometimes no matter how good intentions are we just can’t quite get around doing what we planned. Stress never helps of course. You probably feel out of sorts because you’re in between jobs right now. All I can say is hang in there, things are bound to improve, the weather will eventually cool down, a great job will be around the corner and you will feel much better with a few early nights!

Thank you so much for that I hope the weather does cool down and soon!! I can not stand it and everyone seems to be in a bad mood when it is so hot and I don't like it but I can not change the weather at all If only I could!! He he he Believe me I would but that is beyond my control or anyone elses. I just hope I can return to work soon this is driving me crazy me and my husband got in a fight last night he said I need help and I told him you are the one that told me to quit because you didn't want me on the bus! I want to work and he said you don't make any money here at home in 3 months I said yea actually I do but it is not much because you keep telling me to take $20..00 here and there, and also it takes a long time to get paid on some of the sites I do!! He said well I don't know your business I said that is because you don't listen to me I tried to tell you over 100 times how it works it is not like getting a check every friday!! God I just want to go back to work so bad!!! I can not wait!!

hi ja! i agree with the earlier post that it could be sleep deprivation. it could also be sleep apnea as well. regardless of the reason, hopefully, you get back on track and get restful sleep. you might also want to cut down on the afternoon naps, if you do take these, so that you'll be able to sleep better at night. i agree about your thoughts on alert pay. i actually signed up for an account with them but i have never ever used their site. i doubt if i will. anyway, don't stress so much about your sleep patterns. you're body will eventually correct itself and you'll be going back to your normal sleep patterns in no time at all.

The heat does have a tendency to drain a person. Multiple days in a row make it even worse. We've been lucky here. We have a few hot days and then a few cool days so it evens out. Hopefully, it was cool off soon for you. I've seen Alert Pay on some site but I've never signed up for it. I started a consumer based marketing business. So I'm slowing getting away from the on-line affilitate marketing and surveys. This company is a lot better fit for me. You get out of it what you put into it. You know how that goes. Best Wishes!
