The Reasons Why I Don’t Sleep

Why don’t I sleep? It’s a question I’ve been asking myself for a while now. I’m sure there are many reasons why, but here are 3 enormous reasons of why I think I don’t sleep at night.

I have a lot of bad habits in my life but I think the worst ones I have are before I fall asleep at night. I used to be able to sleep well at night that changed after I started listening to music right before I fell asleep. I think that since I listened to violent music before I went to bed every night it really disrupted my sleep schedule. I remember one night where I was listening to music on my iPod before I went to bed. I had to get really early in the morning, around 4am to go to the gym with my trainer to work out. I remember listening to heavy metal before I tucked in for the night. Little did I know how much it was going to affect my sleep patterns and myself. I finally went to bed around 11 30pm, the whole night I was tossing and turning in my sleep. When I finally woke up around 4am to work out I felt horrible because I didn’t get enough sleep. Listening to music before I go to bed is a really terrible habit that I have and it’s really hard to break. After a while you get used to it and its almost like second nature to listen to music before you fall asleep at night. It can really disrupt how you wake up in the morning as well. I remember one time where I had to wake up early in the morning to go take a test. Since I had been listening to music the whole night it really threw me off in the morning when I had to wake up early. I took the test and thought I did pretty well on it. I got my results back and I ended up getting about a 65 percent on it. I guess I learned my lesson on that one.

Another issue that I have at night before I go to bed is having a lot on my mind…...

Reasons Why I Cant Look a Person in the Eyes

...The Reason Why I Can’t Look a Person in the Eye In grade nine, during semester two I had gym last period. It had been a long day, I was exhausted and I just wanted to finish this class and go home. To make everything so much worse we were going to be playing a game that I absolute hated. Soccer-baseball. Both classes were standing in one large circle, while the teacher with boorish brown eyes, was in the middle yelling out instructions. Her voice echoed throughout the huge gym, as she was saying “Everyone has to pick a partner!” and so on. So I looked over to my good friend faith with glamorous green eyes. And mouthed “want to be partners”, and she mouthed back “sure”. So I smiled to myself, until I caught the glimpse of the boy standing beside me, just staring at me, with considerable, confused, brown eyes. Now you see this boy was supposed to be very popular, everyone knew his name, (but I seemed to have forgotten) and everyone thought that he was funny. Even I chuckled at his resistance to a teacher’s demand, his English presentations, and his sarcastic comments during class. So of course I looked back at him into his eyes, and then whispered impatiently to him “what do you want?” he looked at me all wide eyed and pointed at himself. At first I didn’t understand, and then I realized he must have thought that I was taking to him, when I asked faith to be partners. So I shook my head and mouthed “No”, then pointed to faith. His gaze followed my......

The Reason Why I Started to Eat Carrots

...The Reason Why I Started To Eat Carrots It is Sunday afternoon; I’m hungry and I can’t take off my mind the carrot cake that I eat each year on my birthday. I’m gazing at the splendid vista that my huge picture window offers. It is winter now, and as far I can see, there is no green anywhere in the woods, only the desolate gray that is scattered among the crunchy branches, the dead frozen grass that doesn’t lure the deer to come by and say hi to the window. But here I am, the time is passing, and I have the feeling of being part of a movie playing in slow motion, one that shows my life passing by in front of my eyes, and I can’t touch it. Walking with my head down, suddenly, a sparkle of light on the ground calls my attention; it is a distortion of the sun that deceives me with a fractured hint of a gem that becomes the most important thing to me for the next three seconds. It is a leaf. Here is when the shining leaf took me back to a big moment, that moment in the past that everyone remembers once in a while. Those memories that transport us back to times of happiness. The shining leaf I had rescued has the same brown glazed color of a carrot cake. Those memories are ‘messing’ in my head, just to cause my emotions to emerge. Was this weird or just coincidence? The golden brown color in a carrot cake is the only thing I can think about right now. Yeah, life gives surprises and on this occasion it gives me a trip to the past. I was just five years old. The memories come......

...Examine the reasons for the divorce rate in Britain today. Divorce is the legal separation of married couples. A divorce rate is the number of divorces occurring among the population of a given area during a given year. Since the 1960s there has been a great increase in the number of divorces in the United Kingdom. In Britain today, the numbers have fallen somewhat, but still stood at around 157,000 in 2001. This rate shows that about 40% of marriages will end in divorce. Some couples are more likely to divorce than others – couples such as those who marry young, those who have a child or cohabit before marriage and those where one or both partners have been married before. Functionalists are interested in divorce because they argue that a high divorce rate does not necessarily prove that marriage as a social institution is under threat. One reason for the changing rates in divorce is due to changes in the law. In previous centuries divorce was very hard to obtain, especially for women. Gradually changes in the law have made it easier for divorce to be achieved. Law changes such as equalising rights for men and women in the area of divorce, widening the grounds for divorce and making divorce cheaper are all factors which are changing the rates of divorce. Although divorce legally ends a marriage, couples find other solutions to solve the problem of an unhappy marriage; one partner leaving the other although they remain legally married (desertion); legal separation of the......

Thirteen Reasons Why

...Donya Zolfaghari Mrs. Tymoshenko ENG2D1-02 December 4, 2013 Thirteen Reasons Why Cesare Pavese, an incredible poet once said, “Nowadays, suicide is just a way of disappearing. It is carried out timidly, quietly, and falls flat. It is no longer an action, only a submission.” Suicide is becoming a very serious issue in our society, as it is becoming an extremely common and unfortunate event that occurs in the life of many teenagers. Often, teenagers resort to suicide as their solution to end the pain and struggles they are forced to endure. The powerful and thought provoking novel Thirteen Reasons Why written by Jay Asher, explores the themes of suicide and depression while teaching teenagers significant morals throughout it. This heartfelt book explains the life of a teenage girl by the name of Hannah Baker, who to everyone’s surprise, commits suicide. However, before taking her own life, she creates 13 tapes, each with a reason that caused her to end her life, and each targets one specific person, then sends them out to the people who contributed to her decision. It is told through the perspective of Clay Jenson, a former crush of Hannah’s, who is also the eighth person to receive the tapes, and must listen to her tapes to understand his role in her decision while he witnesses the pain and hardships Hannah went through.

Why Prisons Dont Work

...Analysis of “Why Prisons Don’t Work” An article written by Wibert Rideau titled “Why Prisons Don’t Work”, published in Time Magazine on March 21, 1994, was written by a man who was sentenced to die in prison. He was accused of murdering a white person in Lousiana in 1962, long before the civil rights movement really took hold. He was in prison for 44 years by the time he walked a free man. The same system of justice used in 1964 is still the same system we use today, and the only difference is that there are far many more people in prison today than ever. We should all wonder how many Wibert Rideaus are sitting in cells, in prisons, throughout America today. Let his article be a wake up call that many people are wrongfully convicted every day in the United States. The ethos of Mr. Rideau is of a very high caliber for more than one reason. The first reason is that he was in prison 44 years and strives to educate the public on why prisons don’t work. He could be home, angry and licking his wounds and yet he tells his story in an effort to use his experience for positive change. The second reason for ethos is that he is a persuasive writer whose intelligence and use of language is excellent. Third, he is committed to using the remainder of his life to do what can be done to change prison systems and punishment in America by giving us an inside view. Fourth, he has come such a long way in building a memorable career for himself after being a convicted felon......

Critical thinking can be used to take charge of student’s daily life.

...bonded with the product and a change of this size, out of the blue, would have a negative impact. This relationship with the product crossed the limits of simple loyalty. There is a variety of choices for a customer, although anyone loyal to Coca-Cola can attest to the one main reason for sticking with the brand, taste. Coca-Cola has a very distinct taste compared to their competition, which all taste the same from one cola to another in my opinion anyway. Therefore, a less loyal customer would simply move on and buy an alternative product that is similar to this one. By taking this action it can be said that Coca-Cola demonstrated a “door on the face” technique. They scared their customers with a threat of such a drastic change.  The Coca-Cola Company did though rebranded the original product, calling the original “Coca – Cola Classic”, which resulted in a significant increase in sales.   2) There have always been numerous choices on the shelves of supermarkets, delis and restaurants offering different types of colas. However, I believe there are two brands that which started it all Coca-Cola and Pepsi. It is the two of these brands that through-out the years have created the most brand loyalty. The main reason for this divide between the two companies is the taste of the cola. Sure, there are a variety of colas on the market but if you asked most people they clearly have their favorite and vary rarely will drink the other unless there is no other alternative.

Why Do We Sleep

...Comp 1 Why do we sleep? Why do we sleep, how is it necessary? It is well known that you have to sleep. If you do not sleep you will die in a week or so. With that being said what does sleep do? We know it makes you feel alert and energized. Is it just evolution at work to keep us out of harm’s way at night? Is sleep our body’s way of conserving energy? Is it a way for our brains to imprint memories, and be creative? Does it clean our brain out? Do we actually need eight hours of sleep? Or is it a mix of a few reasons? Sleep is defiantly an important function in our bodies or we would not get so tired at night we just can’t stay awake. Our brains have a region devoted to letting us know when to sleep it is our biological clock. It knows when we should be awake and when we should sleep and you cannot change it knows that when the sun comes up its time to be awake and a few hours after dark it is time to sleep. But what does sleep do other than have you lay still and have dreams? Is evolution the reason? Are we safer by not hurting ourselves at night or worse getting preyed upon? That fact is debatable. By not moving around you won’t hurt yourself. And the predators will not find you as easily. But there are other things to worry about. What about natural disasters like fires, floods, tornados, and earth quakes? I would think being conscious would be more helpful with these situations even if you are not moving around. So I think we can rule out the evolutionary......

...& Shanks, 2012, p. 96.). The main principles of marketing are to satisfy customers, target the 'right' customers, facilitate exchange relationships, stay ahead of competitors and enhance profitability. These principles are essential for managers to understand and satisfy their customers in the health care industry. The person receiving care must be pleased with the services received from the health care facility, and the health care facility must likewise be satisfied with the financial reward received in the exchange. The hospital that adopts the key components of the marketing concept is likely to identify patients needs, provide products and services at an acceptable price and stress the benefits through promotion. The most important reason to satisfy customers seeking medical service is that they will become repeat customers or users of the facility. Consumers want to feel they are getting the most value for their money, and this includes the health care industry. Therefore, marketing mainly consists of satisfying target customers while striving to seek their loyalty and consumption. 2. In the past, healthcare organization were slow to incorporate marketing because many felt it was an inappropriate and unethical practice (Buchbinder & Shanks, 2012, p. 99). Many critics of healthcare marketing doubted this type of strategy could even work in the industry (Buchbinder & Shanks, 2012, p. 99). The blame for this assumption was due to the fact that there was no......

When his apprenticeship ended, Franklin went to Philadelphia. This city, far more than his birthplace of Boston, became Franklin’s home. In Philadelphia he established his own business and raised his family. After Franklin retired from business in 1748, he embarked on a new career as a civil servant. He served in the Pennsylvania Assembly and became deputy postmaster-general. Sent to England as a representative of the Assembly, he spent five years there. During that time, he made the acquaintance of statesmen and scientists alike. Years later, he returned to England and found himself caught up in the growing tension between the thirteen colonies and the British government. Franklin’s loyalties were divided. He felt affinities to the colonies and to King George II of England. When he could tolerate the British government’s policies toward the American colonies no longer, he sailed back to the colonies. By the time his ship arrived, the first battles of the American Revolution had already been fought. Franklin was chosen to serve on the Second Continental Congress, which, acting as the government for the colonies, declared independence from Britain and appointed George Washington as commander in chief of the American army. Franklin was one of......
