Through Twitter, I learned of the 12 Changes– basically that once a month, you work to change one thing. Considering I’m posting this almost at the end of January, I probably should have made my January change to be on target with deadlines.
In any case, January’s change of go to bed early and get up on time was halfway successful. I am routinely in bed between 10 and 11 at night and getting up by 830AM on the weekends at the latest. But during the week, the 6AM alarm comes far too quickly and I hit snooze way too many times. I’m trying to put my alarm farther away from the bed so that it requires some movement in the morning, but really I just sort of move myself just as little as possible to reach the snooze button. I’m still working on making this change actually happen- and stick.
