An experiment

I’ve come to realize there are not enough hours in the day to do all the things I need to do. I typically wake up at 7:00 AM (a luxury, I know), and start taking care of the kids right away. I get to bed around 10:00 PM. I go to bed exhausted and wake up tired. Ugh!

So, I’m going to try an experiment. I’m going to wake up earlier. My goal is to eventually wake up at 5:00 AM so I get about 2 hours of writing time in before the kids wake up. My plan is to move my wake-up time back about 15 minutes every few days. I’m thinking if I move things 1/2 hour a week, I should be okay. I still want to get to bed at the regular time.

Starting Monday, I’ll be out of bed at 6:45, on Thursday I’m going for 6:30. After about a month, I’ll be hitting my 5:00 AM goal.

I tried this once before, but I used a ‘cold turkey’ approach, which didn’t work so well for me. I’ve also done the opposite, where I’ve added two hours to my day by staying up later. It worked exceptionally well, but logistically it was a failure. Let’s see what happens with this new attempt.
