Life is all about ups and downs. There are moments of stress when one fails to get a good night’s sleep. It is in times such as these that lists actually work wonders. This reminds me of the days when I held a full-time job. There were days when work pressure would play havoc with my sleep. I’d get suddenly get up with a start around 2 in the morning fretting about the work at office. I’d toss and turn in my bed but sleep would evade me. Finally I’d get up and stealthily move to the kitchen and start with the preparations for the next day taking care not to disturb the others/ neighbours. This continued for days. Lack of sufficient sleep started showing on my health.

Finally one night I got up, took out a piece of paper and a pen from my bag and started scribbling down things to attend to at office the next day in the order of priority. Safely tucking off the bit of paper in my bag, I returned to bed. And what happens? Sweet sleep once again welcomes me back into its fold. The next morning I got up refreshed and singing. The medicine to stress and sleepless nights discovered I started making two lists, one just before leaving office and another just before going to bed. The one at the office was kept on my table-top ready to welcome me each morning; the one at night was tucked away safely in my bag. From there on my nights were filled with deep slumber and my mornings were full of joy. Stress left my side and I felt relaxed and recharged. I even started advising all and sundry who complained of stress and sleepless nights to take this medicine to stay alert and healthy.

Now coming to the things I need to do urgently here is my list:

1) Get an eReader. Have been swaying between ‘whether to buy or not to buy’ for some time now. Now that I am just getting around to the idea of buying one I am wondering which one to buy. Any suggestion friends?

2) Plan out my reading. There are a number of books waiting to be read on my desk. Have to chalk out a schedule and stick to it.

3) Take mother to the tailor. There are a number of sarees lying neglected in her cupboard for some time now just for want of proper blouses. **The cloth for these is there too. It’s only that I’ve been putting off the visit on one pretext or the other. But now I’d better get it done and that too fast. **

4) Disinfect the kitchen shelves. The endless down- pour has started telling in the interiors too. ** In fact when I’m penning this it’s raining cats and dogs outside. Thunder and lightning are keeping the rain company.**

5) Follow up with my CA on the IT return rectification. It’s been hanging fire for some time now.

6) And finally, get my laptop repaired. It just turns off at will without a warning.Looks like it needs a good dose of medicine. The ‘family doctor’ my Jack of all Trades my husband is attending to it. Will he be able to cure it or will I have to take it to a specialist? Let’s see.

Well keeping fingers crossed. Hope to achieve all that’s listed out soon….

  1. Glad to hear lists helped you so much with your insomnia. I never thought of lists being helpful that way. I know writing is therapeutic to help deal with feelings so that’s similar, I guess. Good to have your to do list to work on. I need to make one, too.
