Thanks for all the suggestions about waking up, falling asleep again at night. They are really helpful!
This week we still focus on sleep int he 5% challenge, so I thought to share another quesitons that’s on my mind lately.
Yesterday night, I was successful. I had to catch a train at 5.40am this morning, for this I targeted to get up at 4.40am.
We targeted to go to bed at 21:00, finally we were at sleep at 21:30. So I slept about 7:15h. Usually, we go to bed at 22:00 or 23:00, depending when we need to get up the next day. Most sources I have seen suggest to go to bed at the same time, to make the body learn "bedtime", but other sources suggest to keep it flexible, so we can fall asleep intentionally, not just because of the body clock.
Some days, I manage to go to bed early when I need to get up early, others days, somehow I don’t manage.
What’s the difference?
I didn't investigate it yet, but I see that resisting temptations like checking e-mail, facebook, or doing just another small thing from my to do list helps. These things usually don't take much time, but I noticed in the evening, somehow time can flow away with things without noticing it.
The snow makes the forest beautiful here in Austria. The snow does help going to bed early, everything is quiet, and slow outside.
I was wondering:
Can you go to bed early, when you need to get up early the next day?
If yes, what strategies work for you?
All tips, suggestions are welcome!
