Dear sleep: I love you. I miss you. I can’t wait to see you, again.
I’ve never done well with little sleep. In fact, just the anticipation of missing a few hours impacts my performance. With all the recent travel and time zone changes, I’ve, quite surprisingly, gotten to be functional while sleep-deprived. On this day, I slept for 4 hours and then was up for 22. Thankfully, I had Thursday off to nap (if not sleep in, because, you know, DOGS).
Jacket, B. Young. Dress, Banana Republic (consignment). Shoes, Isaac Mizrahi. Necklace, thrifted.
My sleep hacks:
1. Sleep on the plane.
2. Listen to a boring podcast for 30 minutes (using the sleep timer) to fall asleep.
3. Wake up with lots of coffee, sun exposure, and some physical activity.
4. Minimize my morning routine (and maximize my rest) by sleeping in my makeup and going as long as possible without washing my hair. (Gross, I know. I just “patch” the eye makeup and add another layer of the rest. My hair is stiff with dry shampoo by the time I get home.)
