Setting a good sleep schedule for me starts when I plan an early-morning activity that I look forward to, such as taking my dog for a 1.5 mile walk. Usually, that convinces me to sleep early and wake up on time. If I find that I have an activity planned for the morning that I am not excited for, for example, exercising, then I find it harder to wake up early and consequently sleep early as well. I have had a lot of trouble sleeping early, as I usually wind up sleeping at 2-3am, but this technique really worked for me!
1. I plan what to do the next day. 2. I listen to opera music 3. I drink chamomile tea 4. Turn off all lights in the house except for a small warm bulb 5. Write down what you did today. 6. I am thinking of an event that I can attend the next day. 7. Maybe I'm chatting with a friend 8. I might masturbate 9. I take my medicine 10. Can I watch a TV show on Netflix 11. I try to remember my purpose in life. 12. I might play games on the phone 13. I might smoke a cigar on the balcony 14. I might hug my cats 15. Make a list of what I did today and how I feel now
