12am, 12:30am, sometimes 11:30 pm.
This is not good. Here I am though – on the net and it’s 10:57pm. Let’s make this reasonable and attainable. To be fully rested every night, I should go to bed at least by 10pm. Since I know myself too well, I will set the goal a little more realistically and then eventually lower it down.
Weekends are a little tougher, but I don’t really go out much, so lets say weekday bedtime is 11pm. Weekends will be by midnight.
I will need to do this for… lets say 2 weeks and then I will drop the weekday time by 30 minutes to 10:30pm, eventually getting it down to 10, which would be ideal (so much to do, so much to do!!!)
I think another thing that would help me get organized with my sleeping schedule is a routine schedule – or a set of rules. (Like no cleaning after 9pm, etc) Basically I think I try to fit too much into one day. I need to get more organized a list my priorities. I’m sure I can conquer this problem.
The main reason I want to sleep better is because sleep deprivation is awful. Adults that go on like this for years are apt to get sicker more quickly, are fatigued, irritable, get headaches, can’t concentrate and just all around feel crappy. Well, I want to feel good and be healthy. I’m really going to ride myself on this one because I know I have deprived my brain of valuable sleep for quite sometime now. I’m just going to have to drop everything else and put myself first – like now!
