For my journalism class, we were assigned to complete any task we wanted over a 30 day period to do while in quarantine.
These tasks could be a diet or exercise routine, anything that can benefit you for the future or at least something that can challenge yourself over the next month to better yourself as a person.
After a week or so of debating, I decided to try out fixing my sleep schedule because, I’ll be honest, I have been staying up pretty late. Lately, I’m up until 3-4am, since we’ve been out of school, and I feel like I haven’t been as productive.
My plan is to try to go up to bed and at least solidly attempt going to bed, and I will do this at an earlier and earlier time, as the days go on.
I started this long-term project about two weeks ago, and, honestly, I haven’t had much luck.
And while I was going up to bed earlier, about 12:30-1am, I would just lay there and stare at the ceiling for a good hour or two, tossing and turning.
Whenever I would put my phone away I would usually lay there for a good few minutes without being able to sleep then hop back on YouTube.
So my plan moving on will be to stop using my phone at a certain time before bed, probably around 11-12, because, in my research, I read that doing that will make you sleepier by the time you hit the hay, all in the hope that I can get closer to my goal of fixing my sleep schedule.
