The Happiness Project: Try Getting Up Earlier
I try to reserve this time for the projects I want to work on, usually game design. Sometimes I think I need to use this time for something else, but that's usually a mistake, and my mood suffers for it the rest of the day. Sometimes I stay up too late (my target bedtime is 10pm but I'm usually not asleep until much closer to 11) and I know I'll be tired the next day, but I still want to get up around 5am. It's my time to be me, before I have to do what everyone else needs me to do.
