sleep on the couch
I’ve been wanting to do this self-care act for a while now.
Sleep in the sofa bed for a change.
Make myself some pop-corn.
Find a cool thing to watch on Netflix.
And do something I usually hate: sleep on the sofa bed, watching TV.
Watch until I can’t anymore and when I can’t, just close my eyes, turn the TV off and join Morpheus.
I usually hate it because I like being in my bed at night, in clean sheets, read a bit before turning the lights off.
But from time to time it’s cool.
It feels like teenage years, when have less –to no- responsibilities.
When your parents don’t’ like it when you sleep on the sofa but you don’t care.
When you don’t care much about having a good night’s sleep. Or a clean sofa in the living room.
So when I decided to do it yesterday, I was expecting something cool.
But….I’m not sure it was a good choice of self-care act for the day.
Hubby and I were invited to our new friends for dinner.
It was an early dinner and we were back home around 9 PM.
But we had a few glasses of wine.
Then we took the kids to bed.
Then we hang out a bit.
Then we decided to watch a documentary.
Then Hubby went down for a smoke while I was waiting for him on the couch.
When he came back, he took the picture of this post for me.
And I didn’t know it until this morning because I was deeply asleep.
So yes, theoretically, this is a cool self-care act but technically, I didn’t do it.
WHY IS IT SELF-CARE? Sleeping on the couch is a cool way to break your routine and watch your favorite TV show in front of the living room’s TV. Self-Care only if done rarely.
MORE ABOUT THIS
This is a self-care I recommend only if you usually sleep in your bed and want to enjoy a night of freedom.
Otherwise, sleeping on the couch is a pretty unhealthy habit.
