You want to get up just before sunrise.
An alarm clock app that wakes you up just before sunrise (based on your location and date.) You set up how much before sunrise you would like to wake up, and how many hours of sleep you need. The alarm will start alerting you to go to sleep based on that (you can also choose how long before going to sleep you want it to start “bugging” you.)
Aren’t you curious as to how your night went? Many times you don’t remember exactly but you know it wasn’t great.
Have a smartphone app that records the time something passes over the phone at a certain height. Have the app running and place the phone on your nightstand when you go to sleep. Every time you wake up during the night, just wave your hand over the phone to record this. In the morning, you’ll get the whole picture of how tour night went.
By consciously thinking once a day about one important thing you have learned that day you’ll: fix it into your long term memory; motivate yourself to learn something new every day.
Keep a notebook and get into the habit – just before you go to bed – of thinking about what you have learned that day. Write it in your notebook. Keep the notebook beside your bed to have a visual cue to help you remember and turn this into a habit. After a year look back and see how you progressed.
