The first month long quest of my happiness project involves getting energized by eating better, getting more sleep and decluttering my life. I don’t think you guys realize how hard this is going to be for me (poor me violin tuning up in the background.)
A normal day for me involves reluctantly getting out of bed for a barking dog (or 3) and doing chores before grabbing my coffee and the kids (in that order) so we can hop in the car for drop offs and work. The crazy constantly running feeling of the day doesn’t stop till 9pm when the tv goes off and the kids go to bed, so that I can grab the laptop and go back to work till 11-1am depending on when my husband goes to sleep. Repeat. In all fairness not everyday is like that, but sometime it feels like everyday is like that.
So, now I need to start going to bed on time, but what is on time. According to the national sleep foundation an average 26-64 year old adult needs 7-9 hours of sleep. Since I am 34.2% through that target range (39… this should be well established by now) I am going to say I need to get 7:41 hours of sleep. Why yes I did need to be technical.
I want to get up at 6:30am which means I need to close my eyes at 10:49pm… instead of 1am. This sounds like a brilliant idea but I need a plan… umm, uhhh. Nope. No plan, I am going to wing it and see how it goes.
