My stats from the October sleep check-in were below my target, so I was hoping to get things back on track for the month of November. Let’s see how I did.
Not only did I miss my target again, but I did poorer overall than October (8 of 31). Sadly, this is less an issue of poor quality sleep (you can still see a fair number of nights where I was really close to the target line, suggesting I was in bed for at least 7-hours, but I had disturbed sleep), and more a problem of me not having a solid night-time routine. This time last year, my problem was that I couldn’t tear myself away from the internet at a reasonable time (remember when I used to shut-off my internet via timer?), whereas this year my problem is that my partner and I don’t get ready for bed at a decent time, and then stay up chatting passed 11pm.
I know that I will be doing better in December since I’ll have time off from work before and after Christmas, which will make up the bulk of the time I hit my sleep target. Still, I should strive to hit more nights during the work-week, rather than leaving it up to the weekends to catch up on sleep.
