I like the idea of doing notes. I did try that once but lost all the notebooks.

Take advantage of that. Keep a notebook nearby and write stuff down as it pops into your head…brain dump. Journal also helps in general, especially helpful to manage anxiety.

Being alone because everyone else is asleep is one thing, but I feel that less light = fewer stimuli = more focus 💅🏻✨ our brains are tired after a whole day of overanalyzing everything so we can focus on one task not a billion

Do you have children? I like to clean at night because that's when my munchkins are out of the way!

It feels like I'm finally taking back control of my day. Like, I've been on everyone else's schedule and tasks were assigned to me all the day long and it's usually around 11 pm that my brain and body say "Alright! Let's do this thing". There are things I need to hang on my wall and vacuuming I need to do that I don't because I have the energy and focus between 11pm and 2am and can't wake the rest of the people in my house.

Omggg I thought I was the only one, but I think it’s because of the disorganization that we can’t rest

I’m the same I think it’s because nobody is around to distract me once I actually focus nobody is up to distract me

Same here! My husband can't stand it. As soon as the kids are in bed all I want to do is clean up the house thoroughly

I have this problem. Often times when I can overcome my procrastination, I'll put on TV show I've seen a million times to help occupy my brain so I can focus in the calm that I have created for mysrlf.

It’s a smart mind trick … I use it often too

For me that is sometimes the case, and for different reasons; 1. When most people are asleep, I don’t have phone calls or emails to look out for, my family is in bed, and in general I feel less obligated to take of tasks others need of me…it’s can feel like an open time to do things without all of the normal distractions, 2. When the lights are out, it’s quit, and I’m not keeping myself busy with something, my mind starts to create list of things to do (and worry about). These things don’t always work, but here are a few things I made into habit, to allow myself to sleep better: 1. Make a list of things I might worry about forgetting (a small brain dump). 2. Try to force myself to go to bed at a time where I can get enough sleep to function okay. If I can’t get myself to get up and walk to my bedroom, I will get comfortable and sleep where I’m at (if it’s the couch). That way, at least I get sleep, even if I get a kink in my neck. 3. I don’t think this works for everyone, but turning on white noise (or something similar) helps to quiet my brain. 4. Other things I use, are related to mindful focus, breathing rhythms for example.

These are all good. I’ve been into audible a lot and listening to procrastination podcasts and books but…I’m getting excited and everything is a mess. I am a mom of 3 and it’s very overwhelming. 2 are in school and then we’ll baby wakes up from nap and I play with her, it’s time to get the other girls from school at 3:30 and then no time until they sleep. You know having adhd causes me to never ask for help as well. But I know I need to sleep but I’m dubbing off of no sleep daily.

I feel that's the best time to do it when it's not bright outside and when people are asleep and out of the way

Maybe because at night the world is calmer. Less people, less noise, less colours, less of almost everything that can cause overstimulation. Et voilà, your brain has a whole lot less information to deal with at once. Maybe.

I believe that to a degree. When everyone sleeps, my mind wanders and I start google searching things and can’t seem to get back on topic. I decided to take literally everything out of a closet to paint it and it’s been over a week. But I am about to get up and finish painting it now and setting a goal to finish this second coat tonight. So I can’t clear the other room and not have clothes everywhere
