As far as sub-categories, this is sort of a combination of "career" and "nutrition" with a side-dish of "home routines," I guess! Thanks to @onelifetolive001's recent post for reminding me of some details.
I have always thought of myself as a "morning person" and honestly I do function pretty well in the a.m.; also I'm the kind of person who starts to fade at 9 p.m., and after 10 p.m. -- forget it, I'm barely coherent and ought to be in bed. And I'm pretty good at getting to bed on time. I sleep pretty well, too, though not as uninterrupted as I did in my younger years. Still, no complaints there.
However, in a way I also struggle with mornings and have a long work commute. I keep envisioning nice relaxing mornings at home, where I prepare a decent healthy breakfast and then sip coffee at my table (maybe reading the newspaper) before walking out the door and getting in the car. WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENS of course is -- I stay in bed for an extra 15 minutes of ineffective extra sleep, get cleaned up and dressed in a hurry, then fly out the door, stopping somewhere on my way out of town for a to-go coffee and some sort of breakfast sandwich. The effort to make "reality" line up with my "vision" has been an ongoing project -- it's embarrassing to think how long I've been trying and yet not achieving this simple goal. I know there's a better way!
I live alone (which is BLISS btw!) so I don't have to worry about getting anyone else out the door, but apparently even doing it for myself is proving to be a challenge.
Any advice on implementing a new routine that is something you want very much, but which at the same time is so very, very different from what you've been doing for years and years? (I realize I just summed up FDS in a nutshell. Ha!)
