How To Sleep Early

I try to make a early bed time for myself, in order to get a good health and fit mind. After ultimately failed several times, I am now making a list to go over step by step.

1. Be aware of that thought in the daytime

You should know exactly in the daytime what you eventually gonna do in the evening, that is go to sleep early, at least early than last night. Don’t take it for granted, if staying late is your enemy, you should know it fairly well before going for combats. You know it, you set bed time clearly, you plan for it, you stick to it, then you have the chance to stand up to second phrase.

2. Drain Yourself Before Going to Bed

One reason you can’t get yourself to sleep is you still keep some active energy, whatever they are. Now assumed you have a job, work your ass out by day, assumed you have a dream, study you ass out by evening before bedtime. Expend your both physical and mental energy, by exercising for at least 30 minutes and studying knowledge for almost 2 hours every day.

3. Don’t Nap at Noon

Once you sleep way early, you regain energy a little bit overly. Don’t nap, instead try having meditation for like 15 minutes, close your eyes, put on headphones with light music, avoid disturbing as much as you can, lose the connections between you and reality and become insusceptible. Cleanse your mind, focus on something like breath or just totally be vacuous.

4. Habit is the Power

Once you start, carry on. After a month of trying, you get yourself a great habit. A habit is a powerful thing that you do it spontaneously, without doubt. And try to earn more habits around this sleeping habit, to boost it and maintain it more easily.

5. Things You Shouldn’t Do in the Evening

  • Eat too much, especially one hour near to fall asleep
  • Get too excited, by any lures
  • Think too much, save that for tomorrow
  • Sit around
  • All playing not studying

6. Things You Should Do in the Evening

  • Close all digital device, include laptops and cell phones at least 30 minutes ahead bedtime
  • And reading for 20 minutes
  • Take several deep breaths
  • Have entertainments early
  • Reflect
  • Plan for tomorrow

7. Reward System

Keep recording your time and feeling, if you do a great continuous routine job, reward yourself, if you feel more vigorous than before, reward yourself. By rewards, I mean anything you want except stay up late.

First of all, let’s all sing this fireside girl anthem together.

Irving claimed himself as the biggest fan of Phineas and Ferb, so do I. If I would want a long talk with someone, I definitely choose the two intelligent boys. They always have the most exciting and creative ideas to build something out, and bring neighborhood friends a good time. 

My very first thing of every morning of summer vacation to do is picking up my scrapbook and camera, and then rushing into the two geniuses’ house and say hello to them. I even don’t need to talk, just stand by and listen the every word come out from their mouths, take pictures of what they are doing and collect them into my photo album. I am not a stalker, rather a smart man like to hang out with smart men, learn something new and be inspired.

Conversation Between Mysterious Islanders And Robinson

Two books: The mysterious island by Jules Verne and Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe. In case you aren’t familiar with these books, they are the stories about castaways. For convenience, from here I will call the group from the island as the eight, since there are six men, one dog and an orangutan in the team.

Robinson: So you are from the mysterious island, which is a paradise for marooned people. It gets plenty of minerals that you can use and produce modern and effective products like saw, glass and gunpowder?

The Eight: Yes, we are. And we also get a engineer, who knows everything about how they work. He taught us how to make bricks, glasses and even water machine lift.

Robinson: And you have five people initially, I was alone most of my solitary time.

The Eight: Yes, we have five, but that wouldn’t make castaway life sound more fancier. At least, you finally have company with Friday, we are sure he is your reward of not giving up.

Robinson: Well, I just guess that’s my misfortune for being impetuous and never learn. Anyway, how’s your life over there, on the Lincoln island?

Pencroft: The most hardest thing was lack of tobacco, but my dear journalist and botanist, they surprised me with a smoking pipe filled with tobaccos one day, besides that, everything seemed fine to me.

The Other Seven: Let’s ignore Pencroft and his little hobby. But we do went through some tough time, like the cold winter without warm clothes, pirates crisis, destructive volcano eruption and all kinds of mysterious phenomenons etc. Thank goodness we have abundant food, such as sea clams, tortoise soup, wild boar, grouse, capybara and drinks made by plants and trees. Hunting is easy for some seasons of year, and later we also planted wheat and breed sheep.

Robinson: If only I could drift the same place and with you guys together.

The Eight: Don’t be silly, the most important thing is you are alive, life is tough all the time, and you went through it, that makes you more stronger.

Robinson: Yeah, you don’t say. So how long did you trapped on that island?

The Eight: Two years, more or less.

Robinson: Holy crap! Mine are 28 years. So, let me get this straight. You guys are rich now, you own the island, you are still young, and your country gets united. Basically, you just went for a vacation, and not a regular one.

The Eight: Yes, we are.

Robinson: Anyhoo, pleased to meet you.

An Island Leader

“That is difficult to say, Cyrus,” answered the reporter, “for any imprudence might involve terrible consequences. But his convalescence is progressing, and if he continues to gain strength, in eight days from now–well, we shall see.”

If you once read the book contains the above paragraph, you would figure out which it is. I shall give you chance to guess.

If you are right, the book is The Mysterious Island by Jules Verne. Unfortunately I was not nearby any books, so I managed to find this paragraph in a manner of mathematical translation from third sentence on page 82 to here via online reading. But that’s not important.

I should roughly introduce you a little background of that chunk. The brave boy of being youngest islet explorer of five castaways was injured by a gunshot and now in terrible but progressing convalescence. And the other four was fighting against those pirates who had been invading their territory.

So here I try to make a post about what I am going to deal with such predicament as my team’s leader. First of all, in my team, I get four men in total(five if count me, since I’m very in), a smart dog Top and a loyal orangutan Jup. And one man is with Jup and separately away from the others at headquarters, no telephone communication available(the pirates had broken the wires). And also that poor brave boy, he was unable to move and needed a great deal of rests, we shall protect him at any costs. But good news is we get enough food, supplies, and weapons.

The enemies could be anywhere, and we don’t know how many are they, let’s assume the same amount to my men. Though we know the geographical conditions, it is still the most difficult battle we should face, for we don’t want anyone gets hurt any more.

Now come to my sortie plan. First, I would sent out a man and the dog Top as scouts, to detect any possible dangers surround us. One should be very vigilant and nimble for that job. If we’re sure to find a corner is safe, I should try sending another man as deliver to make contact to the man and Jup at our original base, and transmit the message of outflanking enemies peripherally to him. But we need Jup to gain our manpower, so the ranger should alone to finish his job. Meantime, we should enforce our defensive establishment, traps and barriers to keep the wounded safe. And what are needed to be all done, we are starting to launch attacks positively and prudently. Our enemies still have to eat something grilled, and the smoke can betray them. And if war is on, we are ready to besiege them and hit them hardly. We will win, cause we are the owners of this island.
