The word itself makes me shirk. I’ve had no regular bedtime since high school, if that, and that was only because I had to be at school for 7:35. Ah, memories.
I have come to accept that I am a night owl. My best time is after 5 p.m., usually. I’ll sleep all day if you let me. I just need about one hour of sunshine and fresh air and I am good to go.
Right now I work evenings: paid, volunteer, my own business here, and I enjoy it. It is my time of day.
Being an EMT (emergency medical technician), I started watching the show “Nightwatch.” I love that shift of 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. Those are my perfect hours and I want a job with those hours.
This morning I woke up early and was thrilled to hear the birds singing outside and catch the first glimpses of sunshine. Yet I crawled back into bed for a couple of more hours until life called.
I do have my routines and I try to read before going to sleep. I also found a video on YouTube recently of Dr. Wayne Dyer about “setting” your brain for the next day before you go to sleep. I totally understand this and try to do this every day.
