Lately I’ve been trying to develop some new, positive, habits.
Some of you know that I’ve been struggling with feeling more tired and achy over the last 18 months. I’m a night owl too. Just lately I’ve been trying to get into some new habits that might help me feel better:
Change my body clock: At the moment I go to bed around 12am-2am and wake up usually between 8:30-10:30. It’s actually a system that suits me well as I’m more productive at night, but obviously it doesn’t really fit in with most other people I know.
I’m trying to go to bed somewhere between 10pm-11:30pm at the moment in the hope that I’ll start waking up between 7am-8:30ish. Oh, I should probably try and nap less too.
Getting back into exercise: I enjoy exercising but I sort of got out of the routine of doing it about a year ago because I didn’t want to make the pains I started getting worse. They seem to have subsided at the moment though, so I want to start doing it again. I’ll start slowly and then hopefully build up.
Eating breakfast: Given that I tend to wake up quite late in the morning I usually just skip breakfast and wait until lunchtime to eat. I’ve noticed now that on days when I eat breakfast I have a lot more energy and feel emotionally happier too.
Wish me luck!
