It's my 21st birthday today!!! I get to enjoy the ENTIRE day! it's actually kinda strange. I get to 1/3 more birthday fun than usual.
I just woke up from a nap a little while ago. I didn't really sleep though. It continues to happen, but I force myself to lie down and keep my eyes closed. This way I fall asleep 75% of the time, and at least catch half a nap. I'm sure that the next one will be better at 3:30. I'm gonna go treat myself to one of Ty's fabulous peanut butter smoothies. =)
Manish and Neetu gave up I think. That sucks because I was really looking forward to having friends on this plan too. Also it's much easier to stay awake as a group than individually.
Here's where I'm at right now :
I set Nap as a required daily activity a bit back.
It's been marvelously amazing.
The first few hours after waking, in general, are just so much better for willpower and creativity.
A decent nap -- sometimes even just 20 minutes will do, sometimes longer -- seems to give 90% of the benefits of "just woke up for the first time.
It's really marvelous. Try it. I'm mandating it for myself under normal circumstances, rearranging my schedule to nap, etc. It's that good.
