hmm...does anyone have good advice on how to fix a offset sleep pattern? i have this gradual shift most winters - currently it's something like 8am to 3pm? which, in winter, is kind of ok - i'm freelance and a creature of the night anyway. but now spring is near and i'd like to see some more daylight. in the past i could easily force myself into a different rhythm, but right now i'm really struggling 😐
@ckeen these are some good ideas, thank you :)
@aurora You could force yorself off screen after midnight and redshift also helps a little or ... stay awake way longer with some mate or coffee?!
@culicid ok, i already failed the first part 😁 i've been using redshift for a long time now, but i'm not really sure if i actually notice a difference. and yeah, i tried the staying awake thing, that kind of worked in the past - now it just fucks me up and i'm back to the same pattern after 3 days. 😶
I bet you already came across this, but in case not ... or forgotten:
At least it's has a large excerpt of Relax & Win. Woulb be amazing as a recording. 😌😴
@aurora my alarm is set to go to sleep. I have a routine all the way until I shut off the lights. For a long while I didn't have an alarm to wake up. I ended up consistently waking up at the same time in the morning (+/- 15 minutes).
It does take a few weeks but I keep up the routine all year long
@luis a consistent schedule is a really nice thing to have, you're absolutely right. :) i try to keep one, but unfortunately it gets messed up whenever i get stressed or anxious, and i have a hard time getting back to it.
@aurora That I do understand. You do what you can on the days that you can. When it doesn't work out there's nothing to forgive. Move on to the next day.
(this is advice to myself 🙃 )
