My sleeping schedule is significantly changing – and it’s not just due to the clocks being moved forward an hour – so from now on I will be posting at different times than I normally have. Until this point, I was generally putting up journal entries in the mid-afternoon and around two or three in the morning, but now it will likely be sometime in the morning and prior to midnight.
Through these changes I will continue to strive for writing two posts each day. I know that it is not something that I am likely to be able to maintain forever, but I really like how it focuses me early in my day and allows me, at the end of my night, to think about whatever happened throughout the morning, afternoon, and evening. I feel like it especially assists me when preparing to face challenging moments and when I am assessing what went right or wrong with my plans to continue with this healthier lifestyle.
I have to say that blogging is a much bigger part of this journey than I ever would have guessed it might be. It is an amazingly useful tool and I am so thankful that I discovered it and its amazing counterpart: this outstanding online community.
So, due to my drastically altered schedule I must now head to bed because I am actually up a bit late, even though it is really early to me. I hope I don’t have too much trouble switching over to a new sleeping pattern. It’s probably a really good thing that I made sure the tea I had an hour ago was decaffeinated!
