pointework Posted April 11, 2004 Report Share Posted April 11, 2004 Last summer I had a bit of a hard time at my summer intensive (Atlanta Ballet Western Carolina) falling asleep. The problem continued most nights for the three weeks I was there. I usually ended up falling asleep at about 1 or 2 in the morning. Though I didn't have many problems with tiredness the next day and in class, my insomnia made me anxious and added alot to the stress I was already coping with. I have had problems with anxiety disorders in the past, and I did get pretty anxious while at the SI. This was definently a key factor as to why I had trouble sleeping...that's a given. But I don't want to go through the same problems this summer. I know I will get fairly anxious, but I have ways of dealing with that. I just need some special ways of dealing with my insomnia. The thing that seems to work well at home is watching my favorite show of all times (Friends) before going to bed. But the problem with that is, I am not sure that I will be allowed to watch TV that late in the night. I am open to ANY suggestions. Thanks! Quote Link to comment
