Note: Day 1 can be found here.
It’s 7:05 as of writing these words. I went to sleep last night at 22:50. I have to say that I fared better than yesterday, but it doesn’t feel all that different. I take falling asleep at 22:50 to be a separate victory. I usually come back home at around 6.30 PM and getting to bed 4 hours later always seems like such a waste. Where are my nights, you know?
The immediate difference this morning is the internal feeling. Yesterday, working on being awake on 5.5 hours of sleep, I felt I was missing a valuable resource. The general inner feeling was emptiness. I wanted to crawl somewhere and sleep for a while to regain that resource. Or eat sweets. Yeah, that craving reared its ugly head, too.
But I didn’t sleep. I did indulge myself with some chocolate.
Like I did yesterday morning, I took a morning shot of myself today, too. I don’t look a lot better.
I still have those black bags under my eyes. I’m also sure that improving my sleep quality will provide an overall benefit to my body. Sleep is the main component in everything happening in our bodies, from how sound our mind is to how metabolism performs.
My initial planning was to go to sleep at 22:30 and wake up at 6:30. That way, I could enjoy 8 hours of sleep. But you know what they say about planning. I was using my phone in bed for a bit and finally fell asleep at 22:50. At 4:30 AM, I woke up to go to the bathroom. That fucked me up, but at least I fell asleep fairly quickly afterward.
When my alarm clock started ringing at 6:30 AM, I snoozed it a couple of times before finally getting out of bad at 6:50 AM.
This isn’t a ‘wow, so refreshed and ready to take over the world’ kind of morning. Honestly, I didn’t expect it to be, not after one day of doing this. Let’s see what the next days will bring.
