This diary entry is for yesterday. Work week was pretty hectic tbh and it messed with the time I had after work and my sleep schedule. My productivity was decreased and as a result spent even more time on tasks. Resetting over my long weekend.

This diary entry is for yesterday. Had a late start to the day since I was resetting my sleep from the day before, however, I managed to get to get to bed by midnight which was exactly what I needed. Spent some time on sorting out finances and also did some vacuuming of my room since I haven’t cleaned it for a while. Make sure to always keep the slight edge in mind, it’s really important.

...What do you mean by using Facebook to study btw?

 

 

There are a few study groups in facebook with good links for material and tips about what worked for other people. But I can do without Facebook, and risk of getting distracted is simply not worth it.

Sleep before 11:30pm? No (4:00am)

This diary entry is a catchup diary entry. I have been sleeping extremely late recently due to being preoccupied with something personal as a result of a changing environment in my life. I want to prioritise my sleep over all else and that is my plan going forward. I watched some TV shows with friends and also went out to do some shopping for cleaning equipment.

This diary entry is for yesterday. I had work and after work I was pretty ‘dead’ in that I had been quite sleep deprived from the day before. I didn’t manage to do any tasks except for exercise which is something I need to maintain my health. I’m losing myself a bit but I am confident that I’ll get back on track with my daily habits.

This is a catchup diary entry. I had work today and so didn’t end up doing much after work. That thing that I am preoccupied with from 2 days ago is still ongoing and will probably be ongoing for the next month. Slowly winding back my sleep schedule.

Sounds like you're still keeping strong. I wish you the best of luck on resetting your sleep schedule. 
 

 

Thanks Panda. Strength to you too!

Good luck, glad you're doing so well overall! What are the things that prevent you from going to bed earlier currently?

Thanks Pochatok, good luck to you too buddy! It's a bit personal but all I can say is that it has something to do with finances and I have heated discussions with family members. This is something that I can move into the daytime and just simply stop the conversation before midnight to prevent me from sleeping so late.

This diary entry is for yesterday. I was at home but didn’t do many dailies. However, I cleaned my bathroom which I had been putting off for literally ages and am really happy with the result. Super clean! Also prepared a bit for work the next day. Sleep though is still a massive issue.

This diary entry is for yesterday. I had work and managed to do my dailies but once again sleep is an issue. I can stick to the schedule that I had created for today and that should allow enough time to prepare for sleep before 11:30pm.

This diary entry is for yesterday. Straight up, I failed with sleeping before midnight one again. I’m getting a friend to keep me accountable for today (Saturday) so today will be the day I’m back on track. However, I did manage to do the other dailies with the exception of reading. I’ve also finally got a start on getting back into study after a long hiatus and have organised the materials I need.

If you're staying on the computer past your desired bedtime, here's a suggestion that has worked for me. I set a timer on my router to shut off every night. I also don't currently have the password to my router so I have no way of changing it back. Now, I could use my computer without internet, but I've realized that most anything I would want to do is online. Maybe this would work for you too.

Hey championeal, you're spot on haha. Usually I would be on my computer during the times in which I sleep past midnight. The router idea sounds like a great idea tbh. Is this a feature that your router has and if so, could you please tell me what model router that is? Although I do not live on my own and I live with family, cutting the internet off past midnight is a fantastic idea to get everyone to go to sleep. Thanks for the suggestion and it will definitely help - maybe even for me to set it to 11:30pm to cutoff, giving time to shower and be in bed by midnight.

This diary entry is for yesterday. Nice, I slept before midnight. A great start and the friend accountability thing worked! @championealalso suggested something very interesting like cutting of the router at midnight which I will look into. I’m also getting into the rhythm of studying and am prioritising meditating and reading a little less now since I don’t have too much leisure time.

I have an eero router: eero.com. The one I have is $69 right now.

 

Thanks for the tip. I checked with my family but they aren't all okay with the cut off haha. Maybe another time though!

This diary entry is for yesterday. Nice, I slept before midnight again! My family isn’t too keen on turning the router off by midnight so I’ll have to hold off on that one for a bit. I attended another Toastmasters session and spoke impromptu for 1 minute. It was a bit nerve-racking but I did watch a couple of videos beforehand on how to do an impromptu speech so it went well in my opinion! Also socialised more with the attendees there. No study today though but I did catch up with a friend of mine and we watched a couple of episodes of a show.
