I love it when a plan comes together. I had really NO CLUE how my screens were impacting my sleep so much. This is the 3rd night in a row that I went to bed at 23:00 and slept almost straight away. Yay for f.lux!
What also helps, is that I started taking melatonine 2mg per night. I’ve been ‘diagnosed’ with a light form of ADHD and one of the symptoms is that I’m having trouble falling asleep and/or have a disturbed day/night rhythm.
Since Brian Johnson, the lead coach of this Optimise program, encourages us to choose from one of the 3 main goals first (eat/move/sleep) and start 1 thing that helps and stop 1 thing that doesn’t help…I can already say the program is working. I’m a disaster when I don’t sleep well.
I also stopped using sugar all together and this already lead to me eating better and a little less as well. Lost 1 kg already. Way to go.
Tomorrow time for a long walk! 10K, daytime, after my new couch arrives from Amersfoort.
I am awaiting for my buddy to arrive in the program! We’ll be teamed up this week and to become a Certified Optimise Coach you need your credits from your buddy as well. I am curious. Let’s see.
Now, off to bed.
