If, like me, you’ve got loads of things to do but your procrastination abilities are en pointe, for example I’m known for my spontaneity and it flares outta control when I need to do other things, then I’ve got two apps to manage your own behaviour and force you into studying/working/adulting. Consider this an offshoot of “Science Tech up your Life“. I also discuss the psychology of the “Programmable Self” and Humanity 2.0.

As you may already know, I love analysing parts of my own life, particularly my sleep (See post about my Jawbone). Let me just prove to you how much of a nerd I am about this. I have compared a week of my sleep, recorded in a ‘sleep diary’ in late March (so, over my birthday)…to the sleep of astronauts and cosmonauts in space. Sleep in Space.

*Small disclaimer: I’ve never been to space

This is stemmed mainly from an old assignment that I’ve now got carried away with and I’ve amended it slightly to be a little easier on the eye, this post is proper nerdy, it’s like a full on essay. I dare you to read it, though, as it’s very very interesting, especially how the different environment in space can effect our sleep! If you would like the references from the full paper to read yourself, then just let me know @kathyathy.
