Today on SparkCoach my challenge is "Try an Early Bedtime". What? I go to bed between 9:00 and 9:30 as it is. Earlier? That would be ridiculous. I have always been an early-to-bed person. And I fall asleep instantly. I'm also an early-riser. I get up at 5:00 just because. I love my little bit of "me" time in the wee hours. I cuddle my cat, do my Spark thing, exercise a bit to wake up the muscles, shower, etc. I started this program during the summer when I got serious about walking and dropping the weight and I have to say that this has been very successful for me. Why change up something that works. I'm happier getting up early and, honestly, I get alot more done in my day by not just lounging around in bed. But I do have to admit that the first couple of weeks after school ends in the spring that I sleep like the dead. 10 hours minimum. I am so spent by the end of a school year that it takes me at least 2 weeks to recover. Working with preteens can be very rewarding but very exhausting at the same time so by the end of the school-year, well I'm just exhausted. Few weeks to recharge and unwind and I'm good to go.
