One month ago I challenged myself to find an 8 hours sleep schedule that works for me. Today I am here to say I did it. I found a good sleep schedule for me that is from 12 am to 8 am. This schedule works well for me now.

Making myself sleep early was hard. But my willingness to make some “me time” made me do it.
I feel, if I become very strict with the schedule it will fall back to the no schedule sleep again. So I allow myself (+ or -) 15 minutes or even more if needed on some days.
Being a mom, my schedule always depends on my baby’s schedule. My son sometimes sleeps a little late. Some other days he will wake up very very early and stay up for one or two hours wanting to play! So I adjust my schedule on those days accordingly.
Some “me time” was really needed for me to continue my artwork. Finding a good sleep schedule really helped me in this. Also, I gave up my afternoon nap!
My son takes a nap for about one to one and half hours in the afternoon. I too used to sleep at this time. I gave up this for the past month (except for one or two days). I made use of this time to work on my pending art videos and finally uploaded them to YouTube after two years!
It feels so good to draw again after 2 years. I don’t get much time but I would like to draw and paint in the coming days. You can have a look at my art on Instagram or my other blog.

It sounds like trying to figure out a routine for your time is a bit of a process but worth doing. It’s great to be exploring your creativity when you can and find your “me time” as we all need that I think. Thanks for sharing your experiences!
