Today I challenged myself to get up real early, like 5:30 early. I usually sleep in until 10 or 11 AM so I was not too keen about the loss of sleep. However, I watched a few videos on the subject and found that having more productive hours in a day might just be what I need and thus worth it. This is what my first "bad sleep" day looked like.
I put my phone further away from myself in a way that made sure I had to get up to silence it. This by itself, would not have been enough since I am notorious for getting back to bed anyway, so I opened the window and let the crisp morning air in. With the fresh air came fresh thoughts and I somehow managed to resist the temptation of my warm and cosy bed. Most of the time I have trouble staying awake because if I do not have anything in mind to do I get really sleepy. I guess I am just lazy like that. This time though I had Habitica and my extensive to-do list, so I was safe. I was doing one thing after the other and never thought about being tired. It just slipped my mind. The only time I noticed anything was around 11 AM. I was reading a newspaper when my head started buzzing. I had to read a few lines over again, which irritated me greatly. I ended up having to resort to drinking coffee. I do not often partake in the drinking of caffeinated drinks, but I do like the taste of a hot latte with alarming amounts of sugar. Anyway, I managed to bribe my head into silence and had a wonderful day after.
By 10 PM I got super tired which is nice I guess. I really hope I will manage to get up early tomorrow too. It is so worth it.
