My sleeping hours are pretty good I think. At least because of my full time job for the past few years, the timing is normal. I probably should still sleep a little bit longer most nights, and on weekends I tend to sleep in. But it’s not out of control like it used to be.
Let’s finetune this the coming month and see if I can mark this goal Done.
Things to change: sleep a proper 8 hours, and don’t sleep in really long on weekends. 3 months ago
How I did it: I had to do it! My son sleeps and wakes up early. In order to keep up with his energy in the morning I had to adapt.
Also, six months ago I started exercising in the morning, before work. I noticed that it did help me sleep earlier and better. Read how I did it… 16 months ago
I get up in the morning but don’t get to bed in time which of course leads to massive sleep deprivation. 18 months ago
I am already failing at this goal by adding this goal. Bedtime! 21 months ago
Work forced me to get normal sleeping hours. I used to stay up until 2 or 3 am and wake up around noon. But now I have to be up at 5:30 for work so I usually go to bed around 10 or 11.
I like that on my days off work I can’t sleep past 8 or 8:30. I get more done and I feel like I have a longer day off, because I am awake for more of the day than I was when I would sleep until noon.
However, I do not like going to sleep that early. I am a night person, I will always be a night person. There is just something peaceful about the night, when most everyone else is asleep and it’s sort of quiet outside.
So I have mixed feelings about my new sleep pattern. Ideally I’d like to stay up until 12 or 1, but it’s just not practical right now with my job. 22 months ago
