Motivating myself to get out of bed?!?

checking in..its 10:30 and I decided to start at 11:00 so I could just take some time in the morning to relax.  Every morning I get a bit of anxiety and have to calm myself down before getting out of bed.  It takes me about an hour to get out of bed.

I need to develop a routine that motivates me to get out of bed but I don't know what?

Hi dailysunshine, You

Hi dailysunshine,

You need to do just one thing. Post your wake times ( and sleeping time if needed) here.

Keep doing this daily without fail and everything will be fine.

I haven't checked in for a week but today is a new day.

I tried the technique of working on something for a short period of time and switching and I found it hard.  I usually time binge but then get sick of assignments and lack motivation to keep going.

It was hard to stick to it for my presentation but it worked well for my paper.

I want to make a simply list for tomorrow

library by 10 am

work on presentation and finish MRM and start AM 


Accepting Myself

okay so i didn't stick to the plan and ended up sleeping for a bit because i didn't fall asleep until 1:30 the night before.  Although I was trying to keep positive, I was still a little disapointed so I called up someone for support and he was super encouraging.  Instead of tackling the writing, i decided to get at least a few unpleasant tasks off my list so that the whole day wasn't unproductive.  Turning over a new leaf is not easy.  My procrastination didn't start over night so its not going to end over night.  I just have to accept that changes is slow and that's OKAY.. Im tired of always being so critical..I just want to have a healthy mind again and I think that really starts with accepting myself..

Getting Thicker Skin

I'm looking at my list for today and i've only accomplished one thing.  When things don't go the way I want, I lose motivation to do anything very quickly.  I heard some news today that was a bit disapointing and I could feel the procrastination coming on.  However, I'm trying to build up my resilence and realize that if something doesnt' work out, its because something better is coming along and I can't give up so quickly.

To motivate myself, I'm going to take a quick swim and then head straight to the library.  I need to clear my head
