A blog post about bedtime.

I can’t say I’m a huge fan of today’s prompt, so this post will probably be short.  I’ll be happy to answer Christmas themed questions next week!

Do you ever take steps the day before to ensure the next day is good?

The one thing I do to ensure the next day is good is to get a good night’s sleep! I try to get to bed anytime between 10 and 11, usually around 10:30. It’s still funny to me that I’ve become a morning person, because I was such a night owl for most of my life.

Most nights in college, I didn’t go to bed before 2am. Oh, I wasn’t a partier. I stayed up late… on my computer. I was that cool. I’d work on this website or chat with my friends, or talk to my roommates or watch cheesy tv late at night. I knew how to rock my evenings.

When I started working full time, however, I started having to get to bed a bit earlier than I was used to.  I struggled to wake up at 7 to get to work for 8, and I found it difficult to get to bed for 11. Little by little, I got used to it, and after I turned 30, I started actually getting tired earlier in the evening.

I value getting a full night’s sleep these days. Along with drinking tea, it helps me feel focused and ready to start the workday. A good night’s sleep ensures that the next day will be a good day.

    I’m beginning more entrenched in my night-owl tendencies, although I should try to shift this as well. Our girls are often up by 6:30 am – if I’m on top of things, I try to prep my coffee pot the night before so it’s ready whenever I stumble downstairs.

    Since they’re up early, we really value our evenings and regularly stay up too late to enjoy the quiet or to get things done. I like time by myself, and I can’t imagine waking up by 5:30 or 6 am to ensure I get it, so for now, my quiet evenings reign.

    1. It’s good to have that time to yourself, and if the evenings are when you can get it, that’s awesome! With my sister, it’s the same. She and my brother in law are up trying to get everyone ready for the day in the mornings, so they value their evening downtime.

      I can’t imagine getting up any earlier than 6 on a regular basis. I know so many people who wake up at 5 and I just can’t do it.

  2. You’re doing much better than I. Since going solo, I got even more lax than I was before. Of the last two months though, due to a client/project I’ve seen 4am bed times more frequently than ever before.

    I’d like to be a morning person. I love that feeling when you feel like you got two days out of one :)

    1. I went to bed at 4am the other night for the first time in ages, and it totally wrecked my next day. I just can’t do that anymore! It’s interesting being a morning person now after not being one for most of my life. I do feel like I get more done in the mornings.
