Random Thoughts

Thoughts while shaving

by Jim Tierney

WHY do we look at the clock when we wake up at night?  If we don’t have to get up at that time, we THINK we can go back to sleep. We try to go back but we keep looking at the clock moving closer to our get up time which deters us from getting back to sleep. Doesn’t it make more sense NOT to look at the clock?  The alarm is set so you won’t oversleep. Maybe you’ll get back to sleep faster NOT “watching the clock” and when you do wake up again, you’ll think you slept for hours when it may have been for only a few minutes. Of course, the temptation is always there to look whether you turn over or close your eyes. You can ALSO move the clock to another room and wait for the alarm to go off!!  Have a “good” night’s sleep!!!!
