Sleep. It’s our favorite hobby, but we never seem to get enough of it. Our eyes are glued to screens from dawn til dusk, and ripping ourselves away from tumblr or a netflix marathon seems impossible. We know that we’ll be in a better mood tomorrow if we could just get to bed, but we always chose conscious fangirling over sweet unicorn dreams of our OTP. Shutting off the computer? Washing your face and brushing your teeth? Putting your phone away? What are you, a f***ing wizard?
I want to challenge you to try and change your sleep habits for one week. You can start whenever you like, but these are the rules.
1. Set a time that you should go to sleep every night. (i.e. 10:30pm)
2. Turn off the lights, crawl into bed, and close your eyes 30 minutes before this designated time. (i.e. 10pm)
3. 30 minutes before the time you crawl into bed, put all screens away. Phone, laptop, kindle, iPad. Everything. Put it outside the door to your bedroom if you have to. (i.e. 9:30pm) Late night fangirling doesn’t always require a screen. You can read a real book or scribble down ideas for fic on a piece of paper.
Try this out for one week, and see if you notice any difference in your mood and energy level the next day. Let me know if it works!
