Tips For When You Need To Get Out Of Bed

  • Don’t.
  • If you absolutely have to, make a fort out of the blankets on your bed and hide from reality.
  • If this does not work, ask a friend or family member to help you get up.
  • Warning: Depending on your relationship with those people, they may use devious tactics. I’m talking about loud music, ice-water, screaming and/or singing off-key. All of these have happened to me, so be careful about who you ask.
  • If you shower in the morning, you run the risk of falling asleep while in there. I recommend starting your day with an ice-cold shock. ‘
  • While getting dressed, make sure your clothes aren’t inside out/backwards. This goes for undergarments and socks as well.
  • As you stumble into the kitchen, caffeine in any form is an excellent choice. How much you choose to consume is up to you.
  • Make you sure you put on matching shoes. Not only will you be more comfortable, you won’t run the risk of injuring yourself
  • Finally, as you make it outside, realize that what you can put off for today may be done tomorrow, and go back to bed. Sweet dreams!


What To Do When You Haven’t Slept Well

10) Drink caffeinated beverages. A lot of them. Try drinking one cup for every hour you didn’t sleep. 

9) Blast loud music to wake you up. I find punk, rock or metal work well for this tip. 

8)  If possible, try to nap during the day. Catching up on the sleep that you missed is a great idea. 

7) Try to eat energy-boosting foods! But eating too many sugar-heavy  foods isn’t a great idea. 

6) Try to do relaxing activities. If you’re overtired, and running around, it can make you even more tired. 

5) Go to bed early for a few days if possible. Catching up on sleep is important. 

4) Try taking melatonin supplements if you’re really having trouble sleeping. 

3) Or eat foods that naturally have melatonin (like cherries)

2) Again, I cannot stress the importance of caffeine. But I’m also a college student who’s slightly dependent on coffee, so take this advice with a grain of salt. 

1) Try to get a good nights’ sleep as soon as you can! 

Chapter 76: Back In Business

Happy Sunday!

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m back at home for a month for winter break. While I’ve had the weekend to catch up on sleep, I was hoping for a few extra days to snooze. However, my schedule seems to disagree, because I agreed to several babysitting jobs, and a few other things this week.

Ah well, what’s a couple of extra hours of sleep? 


Chapter 56: Musical Memory

Happy Monday!

After coming back to school from Thanksgiving break, I had hoped that the amount of school work given would be a bit lighter. Yet the second I cracked open my assignment planner, any feeble hope I might of had was destroyed as I stared at the mass of black ink that was scribbled all over my week. 

So where does coming back from break leave me now? Sitting in my room, blasting classical music while frantically looking through a textbook to finish a music essay. If anyone asked me how much fun I’ve had at school, my current response will be, “ask me again once finals are over.”

Hope you all have a great week! 


Chapter 17: Snooze Button Blues

Happy Thursday!

On Thursdays, I have classes starting at 8 AM, and usually, I can handle getting up so early and getting to class. But today, I was tempted to hit the snooze alarm, curl back up under the covers and go back to sleep. I don’t know why I was so tired, but it made my morning dreary.

Have you ever had those days where you want to hit the snooze button and just go back to bed?


Chapter 2: Can We Do It?

It’s now Wednesday, exactly at midnight. It’s the very start of Day 2, and I’ve spent the last few hours thinking over my (very) recent decision to create this …journal (appropriate name I think).

This is my plan: To everyday write a post or upload a photograph/video/random thing, for all 365 days of this year. My current thought is, can I actually carry through with a plan for once in my life?

But enough about my thoughts on my 365 Chapter Plan.

Instead, I’d like to hear from you (even though there’s not a lot of you), about what iss your plan that you’re determined to try to carry out? It can be as simple as getting more sleep, or maybe something bigger, something that you’ve never told anyone before. 

Do you think I/We can achieve it? I guess only time (we do have a fair bit of it after all) will tell.

All my love ❤
