    Hello,

    I am currently on day 26 of my PMO journey, and so far rebooting has made me feel way better then I have for years possibly, that combined with my weight loss journey up to 22 pounds lose since January 1st.

    Last week around day 19 I started having horrible insomnia the worst I can ever recall having after a long day of being active I am extremely tired but I just can't fall asleep. I always had no trouble sleeping always getting 7-9 hours each night without waking up. The last week I have been averaging 2-3, the really weird thing is when i wake up I feel super energized like I got the 8-9 but at around 4pm I just get hit with a sudden exhaustion all over again.

    I just wanted to know if this is a normal occurrence during this stage of PMO/Rebooting and if other are experiencing it, or if you experienced it in the past what did you do to overcome it? Any comments, feedback or suggestions would be truly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Have no idea, but laying in bed just resting is better than nothing. Also, try journaling before going to bed, even first thing when waking up. Doing it freestyle, anything goes, allows you to clear your mind before bed, ain the morning before your day. That could help you sleep.
     
  3. if you have a chance, then try to nap at day time, when you feel sleepy. Not only the nap will feel amazing, but after even 15-20 min you will feel energized again. Just don't oversleep it, more than 30 minutes is actually worse than 15. I'm on 26th day today myself, but haven't experienced insomnia. Maybe you have so much extra energy left in you which is unused, so take hints, do something :D

    @alexander Is this a normal part of recovery?
    I'm not as far along as you, but I too am experiencing insomnia to some extent. It seems to be getting easier, though.

    Thanks for the suggestion, I will try that tonight. I often read for awhile before trying to sleep
