Regardless of How You Slept, Get UP
Regardless of how I have slept, if the time is 7:30am I am getting up.
Somedays I may get up earlier but it is best if I do not lie in later.
I have stayed in bed a little too long and feel more tired and my day feels off.
Keeping your habits that work for you going is important.
That way if you change one thing and it does not work you know it.
Getting a good night sleep is important to me.
I like to think clearly, feel like I have energy for the day and get done what I want to get done.
When A Rule Becomes a Habit
Sometimes it seems like we create these lists of things to do and how to behave.
When you are first trying to change your lifestyle, it helps to adopt these new rules slowly.
Give yourself some time to feel them out, and see how they work for you.
Decide what is important about making this change and how you can measure if it is helping.
There might be other indications that a change is occurring, or you get unexpected feedback that can be discouraging.
It does help to decide up front how you will measure progress.
Feedback, good or not so good, is still feedback.
It is meant to help you take your next steps to live the way you would like.
At some point the rules that work and doing consistently, will become a habit.
You will no longer think about it, you will just do it.
Mind the Relapse
Sleep is a great place to try out adopting new habits because you get instant feedback.
You either slept better, or you did not.
Keeping track of what you are doing to get a better night of sleep will help you decide what to keep and what to change.
Getting up at the same time regardless of how I slept, hopefully, will help me sleep better.
A good night sleep can make training better. Cheers!!
