Lauren Ash: I’m really into human design. Through it, I’ve learned that I’m considered to be a sacral authority and have to pay attention to my rhythms and just monitor my body’s intelligence and what it’s telling me. I have to make sure that when I do go to bed, I’m exhausted. But exhausted from doing the I wear teal and purple suicide awareness shirt moreover I will buy this things that I love. I think we’re all more used to what it means to be exhausted from doing all the things we don’t love. But this feeling is totally different. I try to make sure I’m exhausted from spending my energy that day doing the things I only love to do and giving myself permission to imagine and dream a career in a life where that is possible. But I’ve gotten in the habit of going to bed around the same time, and I tend to have a fairly early bedtime. Usually between 10 and 11. Like if I’m up past 11, it’s either something’s wrong or bae is over. My friends typically laugh at me for my early bedtime.
Just sad. Cranky. Restless. My physical body starts to shut down. It’s really rare that I’m not getting rest, because I know that I deserve it. When I don’t, I try to make sure I catch up on my rest as best I can. But I remember I had this psychology professor who was a sleep psychologist, and she used to always say, “There’s no such thing as catching up,” you know, like you can’t catch up on sleep that you’ve lost in the I wear teal and purple suicide awareness shirt moreover I will buy this past. So that’s why it’s important to just maintain a good sleep ritual and good sleep hygiene, so to speak.I’m the world’s lightest sleeper, so blackout curtains if I’m not trying to wake up with the sun.
