After work today, PX and I met up in the city to get our wedding cards. The process of selecting the cards was fun – it just amuses me why one of us can decide on a design so quickly while another one would want to ask the whole world for opinions (guess who is which!). Neither approach is superior / inferior than the other – and I am grateful that our characters are different this way. It not only helps us keep the relationship alive, but also helps us make better decisions, since each of us tend to see things differently from each other.
It was a fun evening, though it was late when we got back. Two days ago, I said I wanted to sleep early, so my body can recover more efficiently, at 10pm, if possible.
But today it was past 10pm when we got back… and I still wanted to do some exercise after I get back.
(plus I’m still on the computer typing this after my exercise and bath)
I’ve also tried to set my alarm clock at 4:30am… but it hasn’t worked for two mornings in a row.
It looks like I really have to spend some time this weekend to condition my subconscious, and program a ritual so I get up right after my alarm clock rings. Hopefully, it’ll work!
I’ve just re-read the article, and this paragraph really resonates:
… if you oversleep just 30 minutes a day, that’s 180+ hours a year. And if you’re at 60 minutes a day, that’s 365 hours a year, the equivalent of nine 40-hour weeks. That’s a lot of time! Now I don’t know about you, but I can think of more creative things to do with that time than lying in bed longer than I need to.
And look at this.
If you write / read just 30 minutes a day, that’s 180+ hours a year. And if you’re at 60 minutes a day, that’s 365 hours a year, the equivalent of nine 40-hour weeks. That’s a lot of time! Now I don’t know about you, but I think 9 whole 40-hour weeks of thoughtful reading and writing can really play a significant role in one’s knowledge and writing skills!
Its amazing what a one hour commitment can do over the course of a year. Ain’t that a secret to learning a new skill, or what?
Okay, time to sleep. Let’s hope the alarm gets me up early tomorrow morning!
