How did your nap go?

I'm thinking of looking into meditation this summer! Thanks for sharing :)

Do you think something like snore detection on an app like sleep cycle would be sufficient?

How do you feel when you have trouble to go to bed? Taking a wild guess I'd say you might be feeling a bit anxious, inadequate, frustrated or maybe embarrassed.

Sometimes this is true, but over time 1) I realised that having these thoughts aren't helpful 2) I probably did it too many times that these feelings don't happen as much

Is there a deep-seated value that drives those? (maybe "a person's achievement drives their worth"?)

Worthiness is definitely something that I've been contemplating a lot recently. Here's my current brain dump: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1XLavaM69FiJ1eQyKlLcYlJjG9xexzN4MkBc2VM6J424/edit

My personal take is that willpower over the long run is not sustainable; things ideally should feel natural, like a current flowing downstream. (This is my take from a lifetime of being flakey / failing to develop good habits)

"I've found that even a few minutes of using the overhead lights after 7:00 pm breaks this; I both don't get as sleepy as normal, and find it harder to go to sleep if I go to bed anyway."

Are the overhead lights orange / red-shifted? Have you tried blue-blocking glasses?

Is "you" referring to me, the author of this post?

Thanks for the recommendation.

I haven't tried playing around with the dose too much besides breaking the tablet in half (which is likely still wayyy too much).

If what I'm currently doing starting failing, I'll try that.
