5:30am alarm for the early shift. How quickly the mind and body forget.
I've been finding it hard to focus and get focused at this time of day. Maybe it's because I don't get enough sleep or because I don't have the commute to wake me up properly, just the trip downstairs and breakfast at the kitchen table.
I need to build some kind of new routine. Working shifts for so many years I've not had a standardised sleep pattern since I can remember. I don't think I could handle it. Still, compared to when I was commuting (before the Covid enforced working from home) I've let things slip.
There are hours that I could be using productively, hours that could tackle the feelings of "I don't have time" which pervade much of my thought.
It's time to ring the changes.
