day 19 sleep challenge get more sleep

Day 19 – 30 days: get 8 hours of sleep

Today has been day 19 of my challenge to get 8 hours of sleep for 30 days straight. Every day I’ll share my FitBit Surge sleep data. Aside from that, I want to document how I’m doing in terms of changing my habits:

  • No more screens, from 1 hour before bedtime.
  • Go for a 15 minute walk during the day.
  • No coffee after noon.
  • Use my thoughts to get to a place of gratitude before I go to sleep and when I wake up.

Day 19: 7hrs 40min

The day after the wedding.

I woke up tired, was pretty much tired all day and went to sleep a little before midnight and woke up at 7:30 and snoozed till 8 while my sisters were taking their turns using the shower.

Obviously, as you can see it is still a super restless night with 32 minutes of restless time.


No more screens, 1 hour before bedtime

I  reached my goal.

I went to dinner with my sister, walked back to our apartment and sat down, talked, laughed about inside jokes and went to sleep without being able to read my book. I was just too tired.

Go for a 15 minute walk

I did not reach my goal.

I walked so much but obviously did not take 15 minutes to wander off and just relax.

Look at the craziness going on at night though, when I was dancing at the wedding!

I don’t think I even move that intense when I’m at soccer practice, lol!

No coffee after noon

I did not reach my goal.

I was fighting to stay awake sometimes during the day and had a cup of espresso in the afternoon to keep me going when we were strolling down the streets of Budapest.

Be in a place of gratitude

I did not reach my goal.

Again, no conscious effort at night.

However, I went to sleep shortly after laughing my ass off in bed.

We were having too much fun because of some inside jokes.

I can’t explain, but you know those times..

So that was definitely a fun way to end the day.

– A happy heart rests well –
