FITFUL


Here’s something that many of my students misunderstand – FITFUL. It’s easy to think it means “full of fitness” , hence a positive word. Be careful, however.

Let me tell you what happened to me last night, when I drank over 1 litre of Pepsi in the few hours before going to bed. The result is that I kept waking up every so often – sleep, wake up, sleep, wake up , sleep, wake up. The following morning, I certainly did NOT feel “full of fitness”! This is what we call a fitful sleep. Or I could say that I slept fitfully last night. Notice that fitful is with one “l” but fitfully with a double “l”. By the way, I have the same problem when I drink a cappuccino after 3pm.

Now tell me, what gives you a fitful sleep? Is there anything you can do about it?
