I have developed this bad habit of sleeping until noon, and working until morning. I know that I am a night owl and I perform better at night / late hours, but I am afraid of what the side effects of my habit may be. Because I constantly feel like I am living in my own world. At 5 am when people are going to work I will be going to bed, and I will wake up around 12pm, only to repeat the chain again. So I don’t like it anymore because it doesn’t bring me peace, I know that I have to change. But where do you begin?
