Just take it easy and gradually, Craig.
Perhaps its something you might like to observe on the Uposotha (or on your weekend). Sleeping on a thin mattress Its something that I have found that I have gotten used to.
Since the beginning of the year I've been doing some camping and I reckon I get a better sleep on my thermarest insulated inflatable roll in a tent than I do in my bed at home.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
