DP Daily Prompt: Sleepy Time

pad2014-s.png (308×60) More and  more of us go to bed too late because of sleep procrastination. What are the nighttime rituals that keep you up before finally dozing off.

From my childhood I and my family went to bed early. We had a specific time to wake up in the morning,we had to get ready to go to our kind of work, my siblings and I were required to be ready by six am to catch the school bus, my Dad went to work at 8 am. My mom was up for her morning prayer which had to be completed before sun rise. After prayer she’d be in the kitchen to cook breakfast.My father was not interested in having the same breakfast daily. My mother was a good cook and prepared a different breakfast every day. Next she got ready to prepare lunch for my Dad and us.

Our habit of sleeping early stayed with us. I do not have problem with sleep procrastination. There are a few times I stay up longer than usual, these are days when we have company for dinner, other than that I maintain my habit of going to bed early.

My nighttime ritual is simple, these days the sun sets after 9 pm. This changes my routine slightly, I have to wait to complete my prayer after sun set. I still make sure I am in bed by 10:30 pm which is latest for me.

There will be a routine change for Ramadhan for a month, after that things will go back to normal as far as my sleep time is concerned!

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this post. There is benefit, I believe, in coordinating our sleep schedules with that of the sun.

    All good wishes,

    • Personally,I feel it is summer, days are long, I have to wake up at 2 am to eat something,then wait to do the morning prayer, after that I go back to bed, it takes a bit of time to go back to sleep, I wake up after 8 am or 9 am, depends on how I feel.
      So summer is the time when routine is difficult to follow.I have to eat supper at 9:30 pm or sometimes 10:00 pm.
