I need your help. I have a huge problem witht the “brain dead” mode in the evening. In the following I will explain my siutatuon and would like to hear your suggestions how I coudl use my “brain dead-coma” for something meaningful.
Typical day of me regarding productivity:
05.00 - 12.00 am (wake up & work, productive) (intermittent fasting, just 1 coffee and water) (I do it because its healthy for me and helps me stay concentrated, lose fat and stay in shape: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/b8/de/72/b8de725a641bf9869747d1c2e2cca8d2.png)
12.00 - 13.00/14.00 pm (20 to 60 minutes power nap depending on how tired I am and break; NO LUNCH, just fruits and vegetables until dinner)
13.00/14.00 pm - 17.30/20.30 (depending on my power/pace/woprk that day either finishing work at 17.30pm or working until 20.30pm)
After work: Excercise (1h)
After excrsize: lunch (30 - 60 minutes)
Sleep around: 23.00 pm
(Arnold Schwwarzenegger also is in favour of 6 hours sleep: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1g2ntIN7JuY) Also I am sleeping longer because I am doing a power nap during the day as stated above.
And the real Problem starts here: After working 12h, excersizing 1h and having dinner after intermittent fasting and no real lunch I feel SO TIRED AND BRAIN DEAD. I want to do more but my braind and body says no. So i end up scrolling dumbly my phpone and social media waste 1-2 hours and afterwards sleep. (Derek Sivers also works 12h a day: https://sive.rs/about)
The next day starts, I am fresh I can do the some program as described above very producvitly until dinner and than I am brain dead again. How could I motivate myself to use the brain dead time better or even avoid this situation. I feel like I waste 1-2 hours in the evening. Im also in the conflict of “doing fun tasks like porducing musik etc.” or “doing more work for my business” when it comes to the time after dinner.
I would like to hear from your experiences, especially from those who are following the 5am schedule. When do you have dinner/excersize and what do you do in the evening. Also how do you create the transition/cut between work time and chill time. What do you do in order to chill? Somehow I cannot really chill, I always want to do “sth productive” or sth which brings me further in life. Thank you!
