2/25/2013 - Ok, back to reporting here after a bit of a break. Last week ended up going pretty well with a few changes to my routines. I was able to workout each day last week and that kept me balanced pretty well. I've been able to cut down on screen-time close to bed time and have enjoyed shifting my energy to the morning instead of being a night owl. I did make some mistakes though; and I suspect this is why Scott teaches that we should focus on 1 or 2 things at a time instead of expecting to change everything at once. One night in particular I stayed up pretty late working on a project for work which threw me off heading into the weekend; so I still need to learn to shut things down and get work done when I'm at work! The weekend involved going out a bit and I fell victim to sleeping in extra late; but I was able to keep some of my habits intact. Anyways, time to focus on another week of improvements. Along with making sure I use my sleep tracker, I'm going to focus on less food consumption before bed and give alcohol a break for a while.
02/20/2013 - Woke up with pretty good energy today with my smart alarm app, and remembered to open the blinds right away! I'm going to go work out instead of getting another hour of sleep before work; and I'll reward myself with a nice breakfast when I get back.
Not the best sleep quality, but I'm starting this off on a pretty bad streak so it will be good to feel tired earlier tonight. Going to focus on getting enough to eat earlier in the day so I'm not snacking before bed.
02/19/2013 - Just took the quiz and found a lot of pieces that I can easily incorporate.. some I've tried before independently but haven't always lasted.
It's good to have an organized cirriculum about trying to make some change happen!
Going to use my smart alarm clock app tonight, also installed f.lux on my laptop.
Also, I sleep with a white noise generator; and I've plugged it into a timer so it's off before i wake up.. it tends to lull me back to sleep in the morning.
I'll report back on some other goals; but perhaps the key is to just do it 1 or 2 steps at a time.
