Sleep challenge

I just got back from Melbourne, co-presenting with Kit Laughlin. During those eleven days I did not use the alarm clock, going to bed around 10pm, averaging 7.5 to 8.5 hours of sleep a night. This is unusual for me, my normal average is around 6 hours. I cope but I'm chronically tired. As a therapist I am not setting a good example of rest and recovery. 

The hardest thing to do is to let activities stay undone, emails for the next day, house work for another time. Though the more I let things go, the more liberated I feel from the mindset of doing doing doing. 

My challenge is to commit to adding at least 30 minutes extra sleep a day for a whole month. This could be in the form of a nap or ideally to maintain this new habit of going to bed at 10pm versus 11:30pm. 

Will you join me?

Let me know how your fare and what you feel through August.
