Help. Seriously, I need help on how to go to bed. I sound like a 5 year old, I know.
I am actually very good at sleeping... If there was an Olympic event in sleeping, I'd take gold for sure. I am totally one of those people that needs all the sleep they can get... or else I'm not very nice. At all. Same with food; if I am starving, I get mean. Hangry is a real thing, people. Maybe I should start calling myself Tangry (tired angry) when I'm lacking sleep... anyways...
But I always find myself with so much to do after work. From running errands, to eating dinner with my family, to socializing with friends, to blogging and even to getting ready for the following day, I always hit my bed when I am at the point where I can't keep my eyes open any longer... aka 1:30am. It's such an issue when I wake up at 6:45am.
Even when I get ahead of my to-do list, I still find myself not going to bed until midnight... you know, because I end up watching Netflix, texting/chatting with friends or scrolling through all of the social media platforms, etc. It catches up with me by Friday and instead of having fun and enjoying my weekend, all I want to do is sleep. Ohhh life is hard ;).
Ok, so what I want from you, is to tell me how you force yourself to shut down your phone/ipad/tv/close your book/stop saying prayers/etc. and go to bed. Like the people that go to bed at 9pm, HOW DO YOU DO IT?!
I want to be a morning person so badly... I am always waking up at the last possible second and I just want to wake up on weekdays early enough to get ready leisurely... maybe even read a few pages in a book, cook a real breakfast or gasp, workout!
It is my small goal to go to bed before 11pm for a week straight. This has been my goal for weeks and it hasn't happened. Literally as I look at the clock, it is 11:08pm and I just got off the phone with one of my bff's and am now writing this post. UGH! I know, I'm totally doing it to myself.
Tell me.. what are your secrets?! Have a fabulous day!
