Smile Re: Bed

Well... my personal opinion on this would be that you have to find something to do you like better than going to bed or being on line. At least for me, if I tried to do what you're trying to do without finding something else I liked better, it would never work.

I recently fired up my old yoga practice again. Part of the reason for doing so was because, since I'm retired & don't go out much, I have time on my hands. I was spending too much of it on the internet. My practice has quickly become an integral part of my daily routine. The keys to this for me, though, are first that I play some music I really enjoy listening to plus I'm alone... which is also my preference. Oh... & after I finish my practice (at which I typically spend a couple of hours) I also reward myself with a snack!
"Oh, do not say / My spirit is not worn-- / As curtains furl / In the west wind, / I am more withered / Than the chrysanthemums' / Yellow flowers. (From a poem by the poetess Li Ching-Jau, China, Southern Sung period, c. 1125 A.D.)
