Haha. I laughed as I typed that title. It seems like such a simple thing! Just SLEEP. HA! There is the problem... too much stuff to do, mind going a million miles a minute, etc. etc. etc. That I like to think that I can accomplish more at night, which I can... but is that because I'm more awake or just have less distractions? I do feel more awake at night, but probably feel more tired in the morning from going to bed too late. It's a vicious cycle, really.
So, step one... I told my husband about my habit I want to cultivate. He is so NOT a night owl, but after 22 years has just accepted that I am. The poor guy! haha! But in telling him, I know that while he laughed outright at the thought of me choosing this as my habit, he will also be my biggest support and reminder.
Step two... make a commitment to go to bed before midnight (don't laugh!) It takes a lot of determination on my part to make this happen. I easily stay up until 2 or 3 am without even realizing it.
Step three... attempt to find a way to find "undistracted" time during daylight hours to get done what I need to. I started today... usually I blog at midnight or later but it is currently just after 6:30 PM (Success!).
Wish me luck!
