Actually, I changed certain things in the past couple of weeks, I go to bed at 10:15, 45 mins b fore actually sleeping (11) I cut off all screen time. I don't need an alarm anymore as I automatically wake up at 644-50 and then screentime for news etc. I get enough time for myself and it feels great. I am trying to understand how I am able to wake up so early because I have never been a early morning person.

Interesting ... you may be onto something

It depends upon my employer, client, and the workload. Usually I'm up between 5:45 at 6:30 a.m. 7 a.m. to 7:15 a.m. would be sleeping in after a late night of work. If there are deliverables and a heavy workload and I've got to stay up until midnight or 1 a.m. to keep up with a load ptosis timing of deliveries oh, it's a little tough to do that 5:45 a.m. thing.

like

Yeah I mean I definitely flex around delivery. Delivery will always take precedence over sleep for me. But if I can get away with it I’m going to opt to sleep longer
