Time to restart my life again

Recommended Posts

Day 21 14.04.19

Gratitude journal

Today I am grateful for finding fun and happiness in the small things of life.

One amazing thing that happened/I did today

1) realized that I can help my sister with her physics and mechanics tasks in preparation for her next huge exam it gave me a feeling that just maybe some of the stuff I am learning at university is/will be useful in real life

Workout/run

5min Tai-Chi

more than 5k steps (after standing more than an hour in the freezing cold I had no urging to do any sport 😞 )

Meditation

15min in the morning of complete silence

Visualisation

tried it, but did not feel any difference 😞 

Daily affirmation

a few minutes in the shower

Reading + taking notes

studying and some additonal reading

Getting to bed before 9pm

nope

Weekly Goal(s)

get the third week of miracle morning done (6am), try waking up before 6 o´clock once, prepare/study for the next exam, using youtube less than usual

Monthly Goal

to study a lot for the following exam,  be more grateful for everything in life, find the joy of living in the moment, think hard about my values and what kind of person I want to be, "survive" the miracle morning 1 month challenge!

3 Month Goal

getting my degree or getting it nearly done so that at least at the end of July I have it in my hands, having a really productive life, living my life so that I am proud of it

What went well today:

studied 4 hours (well at least it is more than the last few days structure helps a little bit, my goal is to raise the amount every day until I am at 7 to 8 hours when I am not working), went to the Palm-Sunday Mass it was freezing cold in the open but I had a blast with some of the kids standing near me^^

What I could have done to make my day better:

studied more (as I said before I hope it will change), used the mobile phone less (had 5 hours today 😞 )

What I will do differently tomorrow:

wake up before 6:30, use my mobile phone less than 3hours, try to feel the panic/stress from the next exam (at the moment I am only feeling it slightly and that may be the reason why I am unconsciously holding myself back)

I see you're struggling with sleep problems. I've been chronically sleep deprived pretty much my entire life, it was only recently that I decided to start doing some learning on why that might be.

When do you naturally feel sleepy? And when do you naturally want to wake? If you're a night owl chronotype (like me), you might only want to naturally sleep from about 1AM to 9AM, in which case that might explain your troubles getting to sleep early in order to wake up early. Just something to think about.
