1. Do you have any suggestions on how I can get myself to go to bed earlier? I stay up til 3, 4, 5 o'clock in the morning and I wake up at 8 for work. Needless to say, I'm always tired at work.

I just get lazy thinking about my bedtime routine (bathroom stuff, laundry, lunch...) that I procrastinate to do them and I end up staying up until way too late.

I think I need an "association" thing to make me think, ok NOW it's time to do some laundry. NOW it's time to make my lunch. NOW it's time to start my bathroom routine...

I thought about setting my alarm for 9 PM to trigger the thought to do laundry for example, but I only have one alarm setting and I might forget to reset it again everynight for the next morning. I could get a secondary alarm for that purpose, but idealy I'd like to have a few different time sets for each bedtime chore...

I rarely watch live TV because I just watch my DVR so starting laundry after Dr. Phil is out.

Just telling myself to do it is out because it obviously hasn't worked yet.

Have any of you ever been in a similar situation? How did you start getting yourself to do something that you regularly procrastinate?

Any ideas?

Please don't comment just to be snarky. I don't want to hear "Just do it. It's not that hard." heh. =)

2. What things do you commonly procrastinate? What makes you procrastinate it?
