do u ever fantasize so hard about a situation or scenario u really want to happen that ur heart starts racing and it’s like ur life is finally ok, good even, and u can feel the sensations as it’s coming to life then BAM! reality sinks in that u have been laying in ur bed for 2 hours
do u ever just get really excited bc one day ur gonna be settled down with the woman u love and ur gonna have a dog that jumps on ur bed to wake the two of you up on a lazy saturday morning and maybe from the distance u’ll hear the pitter pattering of ur kids feet as they run into ur room to jump on the bed too and then ur girl is gonna make u all breakfast and ur gonna look at her with all of the love in the world in ur eyes bc ur so happy and u can’t believe u ever thought u wouldn’t get to have this!!!
life has gone to shit in the past few weeks and so i decided to start waking up early and taking charge of my life. it’s going ok so far. i am a night owl, though, soooo listen to me my tips work y’all
getting ur sleep hours
okok so iK that this is not always possible n u stay up late doing crap for school or smthing BUT
waking up early becomes so much better and easier and calmer when u get ur hours ok
find out how many hours u need (varies from person to person; me it’s 8 hours which kills me bc so much frigggging time)
depending on what time u want to wake up at, calculate it backwards and this new hour is ur hour that u absolutely cannot stay up past*
(* unless u absolutely absolutely have to. i understand that sometimes u just have too much stuff to do and u gta get it done. so in that case u would have to go to sleep as early as u can - meaning after ur deadline has passed, u focus focus focus n don’t do shenanigans.)
the idea here is u want a routine ok bc ur body likes routines ur brain likes routines and eventually it’ll wake up naturally at the time
this can either go both ways, whatever works 4 u:
make it RLLY RLLY shrilly n hella annoying that u hate it and u go and turn it off
warning: this can backfire bc u just turn it off and don’t actually wake up
or u make it like soft and happy and pretty
warning: similarly this can backfire bc u r still sleepy bc soft and happy and pretty
either way!!!!!!!DO NOT HIT THE SNOOZE
u made the promise to urself to wake up early, honour it. don’t be a shitty person who can’t keep their word. (look @ me guilting u)
some ppl like their alarms far but i don’t have enough self control for that lol like my alarm is my phone n getting out of bed b4 sleep to put my phone across the room eh
ur awake. now what?
ur probably still sleepy af bc ur a sleep-deprived person who would ideally be sleeping but u persevere my friend
ok first thing u do is get out of bed bc the bed is ur enemy and it distracts u ok it sucks!!!!!!!!!
couple things to stay awake:
in the winter especially i blast light in my face 2 tell my brain “yooo it’s like the day now can u wake the hell up” and then serotonin comes in and it’s like “yooo ty”
wash my face w/cooold (diduthinkiwasgnasaycool) water bc that wakes u up !!! if u’ve ever been woken up w/water!!! yes it works !!!
some ppl r like exercise but be warned: this only works if ur body is somewhat used 2 exercise like mine is not and so exercising in the morning just makes me tired tbh
stimulate ur mind ya ok some ppl r against electronics in the morning but idk watching a funny vid or smthing cheers me up a lot (laughing!!! important)
bc we r humans driven by desires i make like a nice breakfast that i like w/like fruits and like good things and it makes me feeling nice n it’s usually rlly tasty
things i like to eat: berry smoothies, burrito wraps, congee, dates lol i’m obsessed w/dates rn
sometimes i also plan my outfit n i’m like yooooooo i look so good and it gets me feeling rl nice
i also have a short impromptu dance party bc like i can afford it w/the time i have now like i don’t listen to music that much anymore :( but now i have a special time to dedicate to music and dance and it’s gr8
pls persevere; habits r not made overnight n u will miss some days n it will be totally ok
sunrises r nice to actually see and it’s x108908394 easier in the winter bc later sunrise time soooo js
my best friend just texted me “can we nap together tmrw” and that pretty much sums us up idk why that’s relevant but s.o. to him !!!
i rlly want a burrito rn
ur a superstar u can do it also wtf is sleep who needs that???
