Okay, so I took a nap today. Not to mention I kind of liked it. And I’ll probably be up all night now. Is that necessarily a good thing? I like to think so. Here’s what I’m thinking: If I sleep maybe six hours a night, wake up earlly, and nap right before I go to work around 2 PM for maybe a fifteen minute span, I can effectively increase my awake time by more than two hours. That’s not a bad idea at all if I think about it. It’s a form of biphasic sleep I think, but I feel like if I start waking up earlier, I can go for a jog/walk, eat a big breakfast, which is always beneficial, and work on my array of projects I’m currently creating. If I spend maybe fifteen to twenty minutes napping around 1 PM, I can effectively get my sleep requirements by sleeping less.
But I have to have a reason for doing so. I’m considering working out again. Just to increase my strength somewhat and be able to do things easier. I want to meet my physical body again, as we’ve lost touch, except when I’m at work. Tomorrow I plan to wake up around 7 AM or so, go to the health club in my development, which opens tomorrow, do some weight lifting and cardio work, then come home, eat a big breakfast, work on some comedy, mostly scriipts and then get working on developing the book I have this idea for. It’s a book based on creativity and allowing ideas to come to you when they do and not rushing them. It will also have to do with relaxation and stuff like that, which will allow more creative ideas to flow to you. I really don’t know how much I can say about this, but it will relate to all different kinds of situations. It will be a book about living a more creative life in all aspects possible.
I’m really looking forward to writing a book about this and I feel if I can wake up a bit earlier and get working on myself extensively as well as writing this book, which I hope to finish by the end of the year or so, I will be able to be more productive while essentially not stressing to get things done in what will seem like a scarcity of time. I want to increase the amount of time I have in each day so I can spend it in a variety of ways. I feel if I can incorporate some sort of routine into my life that starts early, I’ll be setting a positive pattern for the rest of my life. Also, I want to start getting to bed earlier, maybe 10-11 PM. It’s not that I’m tired at that time, it’s just there’s really nothing to do during those hours. Before I stopped watching TV, I used to watch TV. Now I spend it doing mindless activities online that I don’t even remember the next morning, so what’s the point of doing them? I feel that if I can change the waking/sleeping hours, I’ll be able to really focus on comedy at decent hours and not have to feel stressed and trying to get things done so fast, because stress and a feeling of time scarcity leads to an inhibition in creativity, as I’m sure we all know. I’m searching for a title for the book as well, so I’ll brainstorm some ideas. I’m not going to rush anyting, though. If one day I don’t feel like writing or don’t feel like working out or whatever, I won’t. I just can’t let it become a pattern. I don’t think it will be a big problem anyway.
I’m working on some creative comedy as well. I want to create a show that will be very absurd, but it will also be very funny. I may pitch it to someone and see what they think and eventually pitch it to some network once I get the groundwork done. I’ve got what I want it to be, so I just need to build a foundation underneath it. A good foundation is key because without one, it will be hard for the show to stand on its own. I’m going all out into this, although it will be in a relaxing way.
A sidenote: I’ve been intending for more money to come into my life, so I’m sure you’re familiar with the Deal or No Deal lucky case game. I don’t really watch the show, but I enter ten times online in the lucky case game every time the show airs with a shot at winning $10000 dollars, which would certainly have me on my way to getting enough to live independently without having to get a job. This will also allow me to do what I love, whether or not it makes me money. That will be a fine day. So that’s what’s going on. I’ll be going to bed around 1 AM tonight as I took a nap, but tomorrow starts the new sleep schedule. I’ll see how it works and fill everyone in!
