Woke up around 1:40 am, couldn’t fall back asleep till 2:15 am. This was a fairly short “can’t sleep” period for me.
Exercised for 2+ hours.
Fell asleep in the evening from 9:30-11 pm, this usually would result in me not being able to sleep through the night.
Had an early morning meeting, so did not use CES, in the evening as noted above, I fell asleep, so again, didn’t use CES.
I forgot to set my FitBit, so I did not get any statistics for overnight.
I did set it for a nap during the daytime. It took me 8 min. to fall asleep, I was awakened 8 times, laid down for 55 min., but slept for only 36 min. This is pretty poor – poorer than my usual nightly pattern.
Subjectively, my anxiety and depression were normal – and did not experience significant exasperation throughout the day.
Day 2.11 (Sat->Sun)
My thirtieth birthday, went to breakfast with Paul in the am, did not use CES.
Experience a lot of sleepiness during the day, too naps at 10 am, 1 pm, 3 pm, and 8:30 pm.
Exercised for almost 2 hours.
Working on sermon – which is usually a fairly intense process for me – it was today.
Cannot remember if I used CES in evening.
FitBit reports a sleep efficiency of 90%.
Took 11 min. to fall asleep (long).
Awoke 15 times (average).
Time in bed 7 hrs. 46 min., actual sleep time was 6 hrs. 48 min. (this is worse than usual, probably due to naps).
Depression was around average, anxiety was a bit worse – underlying continuous current was strong, but not a lot of spikes.
Day 2.12 (Sun->Mon)
Did not get to use CES in morning, this is usual on Sunday mornings.
Had a meeting after church – which was intense for me – but positive. I don’t like when my emotions express themselves publicly, so that was a bit difficult.
Took two naps, but they totaled less than 2 hrs.
FitBit reports 95% sleep efficiency (average).
Took 3 min. to fall asleep (short).
Awoke 11 times (low side of average)
Was in bed for 8 hrs. 15 min., slept for 7 hrs. 49 mins. (average).
Depression and anxiety are subjectively normal. I’ll try and do an assessment using the scales for depression and anxiety tonight. I also expect to be using the CES more regularly throughout the week (I did this morning), the weekends are just difficult for some reason.
