RE: Sleep like a KITTEN – Part 3 – Can I RESET and RETRAIN my body clock?
Like you, I work from home, so no one cares what time I get up. As I trend naturally toward being a night owl, and have since birth it seems, I don't even get tired till well after midnight, and sometimes not till one or two am.
The thing is, while I don't want or need to get up insanely early (blah....that's why I don't teach public school anymore....you have to get up way too early), I WOULD like to get up before 10 or 11 am. I actually find I get more done if I get up a little earlier.
But, with no other compelling reason to get up earlier, a general enjoyment of sleep and the good places I go in dreamland, and an unwillingness to leave the comfort of my bed unless absolutely necessary, I find myself falling far short of my goal of getting up around 10 am (or even 9 am), no matter how hard I try. And I do try. And, it's really hard. It's really hard to change your sleep habits. I sleep easily and well, but it's the hours I sleep that I'd like to change, and it is so hard to do it.
