I currently work as a Chief of Staff at an early stage startup. I also have a part-time (20 hrs/week) and freelance for 2 other companies.
The issue: Like the title says, I keep falling asleep. The moment I have nothing to do, I fall asleep. I can read, scroll social media, anything requiring a modicum of attention basically. But the minute I have even a little bit of time between tasks that's not occupied with something (even if it's a slightly boring Youtube video), I fall asleep.
I'm getting a bit tired of trying to schedule every minute of my day or have it be occupied with something or the other, but the moment I stop, I fall asleep for hours on end (as an example, last weekend I slept for about 11 hours on Saturday). I try to avoid caffeine (and was actually successful up until two weeks ago), since it gives me side-effects, so I'm not sure that's my best solution :(
I'm guessing my brain snatches at any non-stressful time to sleep, but I wonder if there's a better way to do this.
Any advice would be much, MUCH appreciated!! Thank you!
