I recently decided to take Matt Cutts’ challenge to try something new for 30 days. (Video after the break.)
I like the idea of making small, deliberate changes that have a big impact on my life.
This week I decided to make the goal to go to
sleep bed by 10:30 and wake up at 6:30 on weekdays. The purpose of my goal is to provide myself with more productive “me time.”
Early mornings are great for studying, exercising, eating a healthy breakfast, and ultimately, starting the day off on the right foot.
Last night I met my goal. Well, sort of.
I was in bed at 10:30, but ended up laying there… awake… till past midnight.
When my alarm went off at 6:15 this morning, I cringed. I was SO tired. I ended up laying there in that brain-mode that hovers between asleep and awake for almost a solid hour.
Needless to say, it was not the productive morning I had hoped for. I am going to continue trying, though. Maybe after a few days, my body will submit, and agree that it needs to sleep earlier so it can log its essential 8 hours of rest.
