Make an effort to go to sleep the same day you wake up. That means, if I wake up on a Dec. 25 Tuesday morning at 5:30am, I should go to sleep Dec. 25 before 11:59pm. 4 months ago

It’s been going on with me like this since my early childhood. Worries creep up or I become too invested in time-wasting activities that I choose to stay up late. I can’t allow my social and general anxiety disorder, nor my depression or lack of motivation & self-esteem to let me continue down this road.
Because it is not so simple as to force your body to go to bed & shut down, I have to make many changes in other habits of mine everyday. This may seem counterproductive, but I even feel like replacing my time-wasting activities w/something far more relevant (like getting caught up on my studies or searching for work) to be a first step in at least taking rumination off my mind while it is late. At first, it will not feel like it is helping me motivate myself to be a better person overall, but, as time goes on, I will be able to see it manifest itself in me.
In other words, time management is far more relevant to me ATM than going to sleep, only to wake up and experience another very time-wasting day. Some people perform better in the day; others are more like night-owls. It’s just the nature of things. Yet, that doesn’t mean I should keep it that way always, especially after I have managed to find a way to greatly minimize or totally eliminate all worries just a few hours before bedtime and just a few minutes before bedtime itself. 4 months ago
