April’s New Habit is a Sleeper (SMART Habit Saturday)

. at . 4 comments

I looked over my 51 Things List to see which habit I’ll instil next. 18 if the 51 items are habits.  Unfortunately most are not daily, but weekly or monthlyish habits. That will be harder to accomplish.  😦

In trying to decide which habit to do next, I considered which one would have the most impact. That would be my sleep habit. If I stay up past 10, I get a second wind that doesn’t shut down until 1 a.m. Since I get up around 6 a.m., that makes for a very tired girl. Staying up late is a consitent pattern with me. Not only am I tired, but I am also peckish. Most of my “poor” eating happens during these hours.

So April’s SMART habit is getting to bed by 10 a.m. 4 nights a week.

Last month’s habit was “getting my church clothes/shoes/purse ready on Saturday. The first thing Saturday morning. Before I do anything else.”  I’ve been mostly successful in that. Let me tell you, my mornings are noticably more peaceful when I do that. Especially because I always wait until the last minute to get ready to go anywhere!

    Since I have been getting up early I too have realized that I must go to bed early. My hubby has always been early to bed early to rise. I am a true nightowl. However, with children I have tried to not stay up too late–they have to get up for school–therefore, I have to get up.

    Good luck.

    I’m a night owl myself but with kids it is hard to maintain. Good luck on getting to bed by 10pm. I don’t have to get up till 8, so I like to be laying down by 11 even though I usually don’t get to bed till at least midnight.

    That is a great habit. I get my second wind at about 11:30pm. My goal is to get to bed by 10, read until about 10:30. Up by 6:30. I was consistent last week, but got sloppy this weekend.
