June 2017 Sleep Check-in

At the close of my May sleep check-in, I indicated that if I didn’t improve my sleeping habits over June, (that is, to be more mindful of the process), that I would set targets in July.  Let’s see how I fared.

On the surface, I would say that I’ve done better during June than I did in May.  In May I only hit 4 nights of 7+ hours of sleep, and in June I hit my target 7 times.  Superficially, I have succeeded.

However, I don’t consider this a success as I’m clearly not mindful of my habits.  You can see this manifested in where I’m most commonly hitting my targets: Sundays.  Four out of the seven instances where I slept 7 or more hours were on Sundays where I was allowed to sleep in, and I didn’t work at the bar the night before (where I would normally be awake until 3am or later).  This is not the result of me being busy most of the week, but instead the result of me not being mindful of my night-time routines and not getting into bed until 11pm.

And so, as promised, in July I’m setting a target.  I will be aiming for 10-nights of getting 7+ hours of sleep.  It’s a little ambitious as I typically don’t do better than 7 nights per month, but I think it is a manageable target.

Let’s see how I do.

Stay Awesome,

Ryan
