Lately I have been having dreams almost every single night. At times, very vivid dreams. I know that if you dream, you are in a deep state of sleep. But somehow these dreams are so vivid that it felt as if I had not slept at all. It’s as if, I am leading a double life, my life during the day, while I work, and the fantastical life that dwells in my head. I can no longer specifically remember what those dreams are. It is always a totally different one that the night before. But often, my dreams are often filled with people whom I have known for years. Mostly they are my friends. Why they are inside my dreams, I don’t know. I have never encountered having dreams on an almost daily basis before. Maybe I should start taking note of my dreams down using my iphone the moment i wake up so that I can “collect” those dreams and recall them whenever I want to.
“Lately, I’ve been, I’ve been losing sleep.
Dreaming about the things that we could be.”
I do sleep late from time to time. But not a the expense of compromising my performance at work. I do feel tired sometimes during work due to lack of sleep, but it is something that it can be compensated with a cup of coffee. I still make an effort to get just about enough rest to get through the day.
I have trying to make a habit to really maximise my time during the day. Other than work during day, I still make time during my free time in the evenings to read a book, watch my favourite tv dramas, exercise, play video games, blog, do a little online shopping and plan for the coming weekends. My time just aimless surfing the web has been reduced significantly, and my spare time is used more productively.
I am starting to believe that you should really maximise the use of your rest time, in doing something you like. This will help you recharge for the next day. It also helps you to destress so that you will not feel overwhelmed and exhausted at the end of the week. From time to time, you should break the routine and do something different, so that each week would feel special and memorable. This will break the cycle of seeing your time whiz by like a blur. Your life spent at the end of the year would really feel more significant, more meaningful.
Sometime in the future, I would want to do something bold, and that is to just book a plane ticket. Any ticket of my choosing and just go for a vacation. It doesn’t matter how long, so long as I am sati sfied in the length of stay based on the location I chose to go for a vacation. I should just go alone, and be out there.
This year though, I have an upcoming thailand trip with my friends. I hope that turns out well. I should take around 4 days. I will have 14 days of leave left. That should be enough for a trip somewhere further away. Maybe going to a couple of countries, or maybe 3 different cities. A good getaway. Oh I am looking forward to it.
