It is yet again late at night, and here I am at the computer typing a blog post, as I have set myself a goal/challenge to write a post for the next forty days straight. It is a little experiment for me.
Thinking of topics is not a huge issue.
Sitting down and writing is the issue.
I find it hard to make a start. I even created a personal blog called thechallengeofbeginning.com. On that point, I paused this post to track down where I wrote that blog. One of the issues of having a number of websites. It had been a while, five or so years in fact since I posted on that site.
I tried WordPress.org, then Blogger, and finally tracked the site down on WordPress.com. Here is a link to the site –
and as it turns out, I have only done two posts so far. The first post was dated 15 September 2012 and the second one on 17 July 2013.
A key point is to make a start. For good health and quality sleep, I need to start earlier in the day.
I have quite often read that you should not use devices (mobile/ipad/laptop/pc etc) within an hour of bed. My GP categorically stated, stop within two hours of bed. She was emphatic. When I follow this advice, I notice a significant difference in how I feel the next day, in a positive way.
Old habits die hard, i.e. writing late at night when it is quiet.
I am determined to stop my late night technology use habit. But it is proving a difficult habit to break.
