Waking Early : Day 1

Attempted Sleep Time: 12:00am

Actual Sleep Time: 2:45am

Wakeup Time: 7:04am

Out of Bed Time: 7:16am

SUCCESS – DAY 1, aka The Hardest Day

On cue, I couldn’t sleep last night and spent a good hour thinking about future projects and plans while in bed. By 12:40am, I declared defeat and went on my computer to practice memory lessons (a future post on that). Two hours later, I was sufficiently tired to sleep.

I actually woke up before my alarm clock went off. But, boy oh boy, did I lay in bed thinking I could sneak in an extra 20 minutes of sleep. I’m only shooting for 7:30am after all, right?

I finally got out of bed in order to drive my mom to work. I was back home for the weekend, and someone destroyed her car in an accident three days ago. So, I definitely had the motivation and reason to get up.

By 9am, fatigue and dizziness hit me like a load  of bricks, and I napped on my floor for 20 minutes. I tried to meditate at first, but after 10 minutes, I was just too exhausted. Driving back to DC was difficult until I got some coffee in me.

Overall, I feel okay at best. Definitely can tell my body would love some more sleep but that would screw up my entire sleep schedule so I’ll have to brave it out.

One interesting note is that it’s always easy to wake up and get out of bed if I have a legit (usually social) reason. I only got 4 hours of sleep, but my body knew to wake up at 7am anyway.

  1. Hi Peter!
    Congrats on going through your first day! To me the first day also was the toughest one, but now in the morning of Day #2 it feels nearly natural. Hope it will be the same for you!
    Good luck!
