Better Sleep through Good Windows

Headline says it all.  I’m infamous for being a light sleeper (as in, I wake up when I hear the cat walk into the room).  But the past two nights I’ve slept like a million bucks, even when I shouldn’t have — last night was a Polidori Party, and I ate like a pig late in the evening.

Three days ago we finally replaced the last of our old single-pane aluminum-frame windows.  If you own your own place and are kept up by all kinds of little noises like I am… do it for both the energy savings AND the sleep.


This has now gone on long enough that I got up more-or-less at the same time as The Bunny, and went for a quick run-walk.  Didn’t light-body run, b/c I wasn’t awake enough to recapture the technique (though for savate purposes, I probably should do that solely, as it emphasizes lifting the knee, making it a closer muscle use to the constant kick-chambering one requires sparring).  But if this usually-getting-decent-sleep keeps up, I may actually be vastly more productive in the morning, instead of my usual fog lifting around 11 and then finally getting things done.

    It is good to sleep in a cool room for a change, ja?

  2. With the weather shifts, cool hasn’t been a problem: it’s literally the soundproofing that these double-paned windows provide. It’s *quieter*, so I hear sounds in the house (like BooBoo playing with a paper bag), but not every sound that happens on the block all night.
