So if you don't know, I work 3rd shift full time in a hotel. Along with that, I am a high school sports coach during the days and on the weekends. With that said, it seems pretty obvious that I do not get as much sleep as the normal person. It's not really that bad. I've gotten used to it over the past 3 years.
I'm having a problem now though... I can't sleep at all. Before, I would get home from work about 8am and go right to sleep. The alarm would go off for coaching at 1:15pm and I'm out the door by 1:45pm. In the past, the sleep I was getting from 8am-1:15pm was perfect....could have slept through a tornado. Now, I toss and turn....waking up every hour and a half or so. This goes on until the alarm goes off for coaching. Normally, I get home from coaching around 5:15pm, eat dinner, and then take a small nap before going back into work. Only problem with that is, I can't fall asleep after dinner like usual. Because of this, I've been averaging 5-6 hours a day on sleep, five days a week. That's it!
I'm so frustrated I miss falling asleep and waking up fully rested.
Any tips? I'm desperate!
