As much as I know that its not the best, I cannot go to bed early. My theory has always been that if you stay up later more can fit in your day. On most days I have a whole set of things that have to be done (work, working out, dinner making, etc.). If you want to fit anything extra in then you have to stay up late. I’m talking midnight standard but a lot of nights 1-2am. Then I wake up at at 5-6am. I know, I know, it’s bad.
This week I’ve been going to bed around 10:30. Every night I feel like someone should hand me an award for being in bed so early. The result: I’ve been waking up at 5 without my alarm! Wha! This is like pure craziness to me. (I won’t lie I haven’t been springing out of bed, I usually just pat myself on the back for waking up then fall back asleep.) Usually there’s a point at 8pm where I’m so tired its hard to make myself move from the couch, like my body is literally cement. Then without fail I shower and get my second wind. This week the cement feeling never happened! Guys! Sleep is important! So this whole thing is a PSA to tell you to get more sleep people! You want it, you need it, so just do it!
If you already get sleep like a normal person and are just here for the Weekend roundup, then here’s a few links from around the web that I’m enjoying right now.
