The best cure for sleeplessness: exercise
I was tossing and turning the other night. Sort of dreading the workout that I had planned for the morning. I looked at the clock at 10:30…11:30…12:00…when finally I just decided to get up and do the dang thing.
Approximately one episode of Parks and Rec later (or 16:45 – however you keep track of time) I was finished, back inside, and feeling sleepy.
50 Kettlebell swings
*the crossfit workout actually called for handstand push ups, but I didn’t feel like smashing my head on the garage floor at 12am.
