I have been going to sleep by 10:00, but I did make an obvious realization today. Two years ago I used a c-pap machine, but my sleep apnea is not always that bad, and since my recent move I forgot I even get this condition. When it gets bad, I am fatigued all day. The problem is that I have no obvious idea it is getting bad unless I start waking up completely from it. I will try the machine tonight.
I also meditated this morning "before" a big breakfast, and really put the effort into staying awake. I set my timer for 1 hour 15 min, and did very well. That's a first for me. I kept thinking about how the Buddha went into the forest determined not to leave until he achieved enlightenment. I thought the least I could do was 1 hour and fifteen minutes and stay awake
