  1. Because of mistakes in the distribution of forces that you made earlier. And these mistakes have changed the biochemistry of your brain.

    Many people during the day are mainly occupied with what they “need” to do – study, work, clean the house, etc. Hence-laziness, the brain does not want to invest in “useless” activities for it. The brain considers “necessary” as an external goal, so any “necessary” is perceived as coercion and violence from the outside. Hence laziness and procrastination.

    But in the evening and at night, when the” duties ” seem to have already ended, the brain can finally do “its own business” – have fun and dream. It can finally start an activity. During the day, he strongly suppressed any activity (=made you lazy), but at night he can finally “live for himself”.

    In itself, this situation when you do not do what you want in life is not the norm, but this is not enough to bring down your regime.

    The problem is hormones, specifically melatonin and serotonin. To put it very simply, serotonin wakes you up, melatonin puts you to sleep. Peak melatonin production is between 22 and 24 hours, and if you are in bed at this time and nothing interferes with your sleep , you fall asleep. Serotonin production begins to slowly increase as you get closer to waking up. During the day, serotonin accumulated in the morning helps you stay awake, and in the evening it is serotonin that turns into melatonin, which helps you fall asleep.

    What happens if you don't go to bed on time? You miss the active hours of melatonin production and can't fall asleep. Instead, you feel extremely alert and productive as serotonin is being released. For the body, it is as if “morning has come”, although you have not slept.�

    Of course, soon the serotonin runs out, and by this morning you feel tired and broken. But there is no more serotonin, the body cannot produce it indefinitely. During the day, you can't concentrate, you feel tired and everything is annoying-typical symptoms of a lack of serotonin. In the evening, the daily supply of serotonin should turn into melatonin – but here's the problem, you don't have serotonin. Hence insomnia. And after one o'clock in the morning, you get a new dose of serotonin. And the cycle repeats.

    After a while, exhausted by lack of sleep and artificial attempts to hold attention during the day, the body fails. Serotonin is less and less (and you permanently feel lazy and absent-minded), melatonin is not enough (and you can not get enough sleep and restore strength), and here, in fact, it turns out what it turns out: a nocturnal lifestyle.

    The psychological aspect (you don't want to do “daytime” activities) and the hormonal aspect (hormone production is disrupted) reinforce each other.

    At night, you want to go about your business and voila-the body is awake thanks to serotonin. There's no melatonin, so you can't sleep. You could restore your daily routine and normal hormonal balance, but here's the problem-there is no motivation for this, the day is boring, and the night is fun.

    The only way to break out of this cycle is to forcibly restore the daily routine, go to bed somewhere around 22 hours and get up early. In addition, to deal with the psychological aspect and exclude from your life “it is necessary”.

  2. Mixing your circadian rhythm (biorhythm of daily activity) is associated with your unconscious beliefs about personal freedom and responsibilities. This usually occurs as a response of the body to the compulsion of external circumstances – the need to attend boring classes or work at an unloved job.

    As a result, psychological mechanisms force the body to rearrange the peak of activity for the “time of freedom”. But the resources are not infinite. And for this reason, during the next day they are simply not enough for a full-fledged life activity, and besides, the beliefs of “compulsion” have an intense impact.

    How can I change this?

    1. Set your priorities. Understand what is really important to you for the long-term perspective of life.
    2. Understand that the only person who determines everything that happens to you and bears full responsibility is yourself.
    3. Determine the most desired best result, in the change of peaks of daily activity.
    4. Deliberately, with a strong-willed effort, form a new sleep and wake schedule.
    5. Implement it with a strong-willed effort. If the peak of activity begins in the evening and you really want an adventure, then there are some simple recommendations:
    But. Drink a not very hot tea with one teaspoon of honey and lemon, very slowly, as if savoring.
    B. Take a large book from the classics of literature: Leo Tolstoy, Ivan Turgenev, will fit perfectly.
    V. Have a notebook and pen ready for sudden ideas, with the firm intention of coming back to them in the morning.
    G. Wash your face, undress, and go to bed. Read a book, drink tea, have ideas, write them down and leave them until morning.
    D. If you can't sleep at all, drink 20 drops of Motherwort, Zamanikha or Valerian tincture.

    The main thing is not to abandon the planned plan for some time, the rhythm of daily activity will enter a new normal.

  3. Because we've become too good at living. We don't starve. We do not live for 10 people in one apartment.

    Because we are lazy, unsystematic people, addicted to uncontrolled chemical reactions in our bodies.

    Because we lack the willpower / motivation to change things in our lives until the rooster bites.

    We do not understand why we need to learn, overcome ourselves and difficulties, if no one guarantees receiving benefits in return. Preferably right away and in millions.

    We love to dream, to make plans that go nowhere, that is, we do not know how or do not want to anticipate far-reaching consequences.

    When our basic needs for security, shelter, and food are met, we are sucked into the swamp of stability.

    What should I do to change these trends?

    Realize that as long as you have a head on your shoulders , you can change your real material life.

    To realize that if you don't want to go anywhere and do nothing, you won't get anywhere. You'll go with the flow like something in an ice hole. Not prepared for the complexities of life.

    Or do nothing, but just wait for a good kick (incentive).

    However, we can't control the force of the kick. They can weigh such a pendel that it will not seem enough.

    It is better to lay straw, what do you think?


  4. Good afternoon. Because you need to sit down at night and write down all your ideas for improving your life, prescribe an algorithm of actions, and in the afternoon wake up to read, think about whether you can start implementing your plans or still need to think about something and prescribe. If you feel that you are full of energy and ready to embark on a plan to implement a better life, then you will succeed. To do this, it is also better to fall asleep before 12 am in order to wake up full of energy. I wish you success in implementing your ideas
