Thank you for your cheeky question ;)

The answer is none.

Since I am only moving time from after the children go to bed to before the children wake up. My wife was a creative director before the pandemic and is now homeschooling our two children, a choice we made together and she opted into - I offered to school them if she wanted to keep working.

Thank you, I know many people feel games are a waste of time. But I am of the opposite opinion and glad you are encouraging your son to follow his dream!

I can totally relate to what you are talking about regarding derailed sleep habits, and I still encounter these nights myself from time to time. I can only speak for myself, but here are some of the other routine practices that really help me:

1) I have a clear 3 year vision with a keystone goal and I have specific 90 days goals. Both of these milestones have measurable results. This is what gets me back on track anytime I fall off the wagon.

2) Before I go to bed, I journal for 15 - 30 minutes - I celebrate what I gained and I outline the next day and write down exactly what I will do, especially related to my project. This gets it out of my head and I can relax knowing I'll wake up and be able to hit the ground running.

3) I have a morning routine established: wake, brush teeth, drink water, meditate, stretch, then hit the project tasks I outlined the night before in a state of flow.

The result of these basic practices is that my mind is free all evening to be present. I also studied effective sleep habits to increase my success rate:

- Consistent to bed, consistent to rise, this is hard when weekends tend to be up later, I am still working on this.

- No screens for 2 hours before bed (hard)

- No water or food before bed

- Dim the lights in the house an hour before bed, and do everything I can to minimize noise and interruptions while sleeping (cats are bad for this)

- I also measure my sleep using an app so I can get data on which nights are bad and why, my wife makes fun of me for doing this, and she might be right.

If you are referring to the programming language it's C# - if you are referring to localization it's English and Simplified Chinese.

I have a pot in the morning which I think adds up to 2 or 3 cups. If I drink anything after 12 I've noticed it's harder to sleep at night.

We are a single income family. I need to work to pay the bills.
