When I wake in the mornings,I get up straight away.When I was a child,I would be happy to stay in bed and play with my dolls or read my favourite books,but once I hit teenage years,I was out of bed as soon as my eyes opened to greet the day!! I now enjoy going out into my garden for an hour before the tropical sun gets any severe heat in it.I adore the peace of the early hours with the waking birds starting to sing and chatter before any traffic noise,distant though it might be,interferes with the harmony of the day!
In the winter I spend a lot of time in bed with the kettle and coffee pot and a good book and keep warm without spending too much on heating..
I also have a major problem with back and leg pain on waking and standing. So have to gage the day slowly. If getting my coffee the day seems ok then am up reasonably quickly. If however its bad, I need to spend some hours negotiating the day and it may be midday before I can move. The various tests being carried out will eventually diagnose the problem. I have learnt not to stress about it but take each day as it comes. I have also learnt not to feel guilty about staying in bed.
good on you for learning not to stress....that is awful having to stay in bed so long due to pain....several of us seem to have this type of problem. I am the opposite -i am great in the mornings after bed, but have to go to bed early!
I usually get up straight away. Once I go to the toilet, I am up so I might as well stay that way. Occasionally I go back to bed, but as my husband said this morning, if he stays in bed too long his back starts hurting. That sometimes happens to me too. We sometimes have a cuddle before getting up, but have lots of meetings and appointments most days so dont have time to laze around
To be honest, I never get the time to remain in bed after I've woken up. Having said that though, on Saturday mornings, I sometimes cook a nicer breakfast and take it upstairs for my husband and myself to enjoy in bed....then I get up.
Used to be always up and sometimes, just sometimes, wondering what to do once up - that's in winter.
Can't stay in bed in summer as need to be up the minute my eyes open.
However, now that I am retired, I wake at 6 am on the dot. In winter (or just very cool weather) I go to loo, have a coffee, go back to bed snuggle down go back to sleep (easily) because the longer I am in there - the less I pay in heating. It is a no brainer - stay in bed catch up on the news send emails receive emails or over sleep. I rest easy knowing how much I am saving on fuel bills.
I wake up, & stay in bed, looking at e-mails until it's time to go walking with my friend, at 8am. Then I'll come home, have a shower, make my breakfast & take it back to bed & eat it while watching iview. I'll also sort out my newspaper cuttings, & put them into various folders, while watching more iview., & waste time playing Solitaire!
