At 6 am I have fed my cats, cleaned their poop, eaten, taken my vitamins, meditated, posted memes and advice on other social media sites, and written emails. I am ridiculous; I can’t sleep past 5 am; it is very funny to me that in my late teens/ early 20s I would still be AWAKE at this hour (with the assistance of substances and mania). Chalk it up to my age, maturity, but most PRACTICING BALANCE and self care! I must sleep for at least 8 hours a day, exercise, meditate, take my medicine and vitamins, drink an intense amount of water, and garner guidance from groups and peers. The sleep part comes in spurts; I usually take a nap mid-day, as I am often awake until 1 am. Life is about balance; listen to your body! Just because I am up this early, I don’t expect YOU to be! Be kind to yourself and at any point you can start your day over!
