This past week has been rough, indeed. We had a pretty big math exam, in addition to smaller assignments. The most difficult “task” has been to conquer my sleeping problem. My sleep routine has been out of the blue. Which has been messing with me psychologically. In my view, it has something to do with the circadian rhythm, since, the majority of the days I have been waking up at 7 o´clock, and gone to bed, approximately at midnight. With seven hours of good night sleep, which is virtuous compared to what I need. I have realized that eight hours makes me more tired than six and a half. Thus, I try to aim at seven.
However, as I mentioned before life ain’t no sunshine and rainbows. Accordingly, I have averaged more or less six hours of sleep. With a low of 3 hours. As a result, my keystone habit, hasn’t stuck yet (reading), the meditation I was sincerely disciplined about came to an end. Additionally, the daily praying keeps procrastinating. I’m truly disappointed in myself, and I need to be accountable for my actions.
One might say, “who cares, as long as the academics are great, It doesn’t matter”. I could not disagree more. The math exam went well, (received it today). I aced it, 23 out of 23. Which is good, however, that feeling last’s for nearly 10 minutes. Then all other stuff crawls back up, the sleep deprivation, lack of discipline and willingness to finish what I have started. I really do need to return to my normal habits and most importantly practise moderation, which is key. Enjoy the journey, and sleep more.
Will probably update you moreover this subject, upcoming posts.
Over n’ out.
