I’ve read a fair amount about how color effects mood and there are certain colors that are better for a bedroom. I can’t paint the walls in my bedroom but I recently replaced white sheets with some gold sheets from another room.
That wasn’t working so I went for gray. The only problem is that now I can’t really wake up. I definitely can’t work on the computer in that room anymore and I know that I’m supposed to have a dedicated room for sleeping and shouldn’t do that anyways. I don’t think it would be enough to tackle major insomnia but it has helped me sleep a little bit better.
Now that winter has officially arrived I feel like I have a new full time job on top of my regular full time job. That job is staying warm. The fatigue and pain just gets so much worse when I am cold. It just exhausts me.
My first tip is to wear a scarf, even in the house. I can’t do this long just because it hurts my neck but when nothing else is working it’s really useful.
My second tip is to either get a space heater or an electric fireplace. I would prefer a built in one with a fireplace mantel shelf here. However, since I live in an apartment I was looking for a portable one. Instead, at Wal-Mart I found a little space heater from Lasko that looks more like a piece of pottery. Even when the regular heat is turned up high radiant heating from a space heater seems to help more.
I love Thanksgiving but it’s very hard on my physically. This year I got quite sick and I said “I’ve been driving, standing up, and sleeping in a different bed. It’s like going to the Olympics for a sport that I’m not very good at”.
