I’m making it in just under the wire, but I’m still getting a post up! And woohoo! Six days of posting! I think my challenge has worked so far. Yay me.
So I’ve gotten into a bad habit. I read before I go to bed. That’s fine. But I read later than I should. Which means I don’t get enough sleep. I need at least 7 hours (LOL I almost typed years, which sounds right haha). But here’s the crazy thing. I’m waking up early to keep reading. To the point that I get out of bed too late to do everything I need to do before going to work. Like shower. Feed She-ra. Eat breakfast. So I get them done, but rushed and frantically and I’m always late for work these days. It’s a bad cycle. I don’t know how to break it. I have no willpower in the morning. My alarm goes off and I grab my e-reader and just start reading. Everyday I say I’m just going to read until the time I would normally get up. But nope. I think of it is that I don’t feel I can read comfortably at any other time. If I sit and read a book on the couch, my family thinks that’s an invitation to watch tv. And it isn’t. Sit in my room? They’re texting me, asking me what I’m doing. I love my family but just give me time to read!
Typing all that out, I think I’m going to set aside reading time for myself in the evening that my family is going to have to live with. And then maybe I can get to work on time.
Wish me luck!
