Dune by Frank Herbert. When I was a teenager I lived in a small town and reading the detailed and intricate universe of Dune provided me a safe escape from the world around me.

I have both a digital and physical calendar that I use to keep track of stuff. And I make my bed every morning and get dressed into real clothes so that it sets the tone for the rest of the day so that I stay out of bed.
