Oct 22 is my birthday. The dates on my birth certificate are just random like that. As far as my birth date is concerned, it’s the last day of September, so no matter what, I’m going to call it that. Oct 22 is the date of my birthday because that’s the day I became a person who eats. My birthday is all about eating.
I think I am going to become a vegetarian. This is the second time in my life I’ve made a major life change. First I stopped eating meat when I was around four years old. Then I quit smoking cigarettes, which is a little weird, but that’s just me. I still have a few people that I know that smoke and I will not stop them. I am, however, going to stop eating all things that make my body feel sick.
Eat healthy, sleep well, and exercise.
The point is that people often think they need to get rid of something unhealthy and then they go out and get it. In the same way, we have to get rid of a bad habit without resorting to the same old thing over and over. It doesn’t have to be permanent. You can change your mind later and still maintain your lifestyle.
My dad always told me that I was a “fantastic sleeper” because if I wake up at 2:30am, I will still be asleep until 3:15am. But that is a myth. I had a bad night last night, so I am awake when I wake up. I am really lucky to get up early enough to have a good sleep.
We’re not talking about sleeping during your normal routine. We’re talking about sleeping early. It’s a really good habit to develop. If you’re waking up at 5am and still not sleeping until 7am, you’re either going to be super cranky and irritable, or you’ll be cranky and irritable for a whole day. Not ideal.
The point of having a regular routine is to have a routine that you stick to and then you dont have to be aware of it. And if you dont have a routine, youll feel totally deprived. So I can understand if you dont feel as good as you do if you dont follow a routine. But I would rather have a routine that I do every morning and then every day.
If youre not sleeping, youre not sleeping, and if youve never slept, you probably dont know it. This is a concept that I use all the time. The problem is that I can’t seem to get over the fact that I can never sleep when I try to do this. What I am saying is that if youre sleeping and not sleeping, it shows in your behavior.
I think we can all agree that it is important to sleep regularly. And I think we can all agree that it is important to sleep on the weekends. But sleeping when you are tired shows up in your behavior. That is, if you are tired, you do not have the energy to do what you normally would. This is very different from the feeling of being refreshed from sleep.
If you are tired and you are doing something, you should do it. If you are not tired, you should not do it. But if you think it is not going to help anyone when you do something, then you are probably doing something.
