Sleeping habits

About a year ago, I conducted an experiment in sleeping on regular times. For those of you not fluent in Swedish, my conclusion was, not surprisingly, that sleeping on regular times is an excellent way of minimising time spent on sleeping while retaining the benefits of sleeping. I found that getting up at the same time every morning was especially effective and tended to remove the stupor I normally experience after waking up.

Since I do not benefit from sleeping too much (I suffer from headache if I sleep more than about eight hours), I want to avoid sleeping too much, but lack in self-discipline has kept me from doing so lately. This post is an attempt to alleviate the problem, since I tend to be more serious with projects published on this website. Therefore, I am now instigating a ten-day project to rise at seven thirty every morning, regardless of when I go to sleep.

I start today, which means that the alarm will sound in roughly five hours. In ten days, I will post another article telling you about how the project is going. Hopefully, I will report success and more stability in my sleeping and therefore my life in general. Wish me good luck!

    I manage to get up today, at least, after four hours of sleep. Hopefully that will make me fall asleep earlier tonight.

    Ok, this turned out to be a complete failure. It was not by accident, though, since I simply decided that I wanted to do things which recquired me to break the preset rule of going up at the same time every day. I shall have to make a new attempt when vacation is over.
