morning routines: with or without technology?
so i’ve been thinking a lot about morning routines lately and i think i may want to change mine. the very very first thing i do when i wake up is check my phone to see who sent me messages while i was asleep. maybe this is a habit that will go away once i get a little more acclimated to being in japan but i kind of doubt it. the time difference makes it so that all of my west coast ish friends are waking up just as i’m going to sleep, and ending their work days just as i’m waking up. i’ve also been finding that no matter what time i go to sleep (12, 1, 2…) i still wake up around 8am. so weird considering i’m quite known for not waking up in the mornings.
i’m thinking that adding some time in the morning without technology might be a good test for me since i’m basically attached to my laptop/phone almost constantly. bad news bears.
