Since quarantine began and I stopped working 9 – 5, my sleep pattern has been really weird. Inconsistent. I used to have trouble sleeping at night, and for years when I was working from home back in the early 2000’s I slipped, naturally it would seem, into a vampire-like but stable sleep pattern in which I was up all night and slept all day.
Nowadays however, it’s almost like I’m living 36-hour days instead of the normal 24 or something. One day I’ll sleep all night, another all day, and then sometimes only half the night or half the day. Often I’ll sleep 6 hours and that seems to be enough, and then other times I’ll sleep for 12 hours or more. Not sure what that’s about, but as I prepare for NaNoWriMo I’m trying to go back to a 9 – 5 schedule, starting today, since I think that will make me more productive.
We’ll see how that goes. How about the rest of you? Are you a night owl or a morning person? Has the pandemic affected your sleep patterns at all? Let me know in the comments.
