Sleep: First World’s Obsession

Sleep

The biggest mystery today

First world’s obsession.

 

Did I get enough?

Was I positioned right?

Let me check my phone for the stats.

 

Sleep diary

Pets

Xanax

What else can get me a good night’s sleep?

 

Phone’s blue light

Eating dinner late

Lack of exercise

Or Stress with a capital S

Is that what’s keeping me up?

 

What do successful people do?

How much sleep do they get?

What time do they go to bed?

Perhaps I should follow their ways.

 

Which side should I sleep on?

Right? Left?

Perhaps the tummy would do the trick.

 

Or perhaps all these thoughts is what’s keeping me up…
