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.
