Most people love to wake up a little late and enjoy a good morning while sipping a cup of coffee. Waking up early can be quite a hard task, especially if you have a difficult job, kids, and other responsibilities. But what if we learned to manage our time better?
The First Time
All it takes is one time to wake up at 4:30 am or 5:00 am to see how different your day can go. Sure, the first time it will most likely make you feel like crap, moody and tired. However, once you do it, there is no going back.
This is truly a tool that helps no matter what. Some people like to be spontaneous because it’s in their nature, and already know what their schedule for the next day is anyway.
What if you thought about all the things you have or should do tomorrow (for example) and put them in a specific order (of your choice) on a piece of paper? Now, we all have priorities and would rather do something else instead of spending time writing such things, but what if it turns out to be really beneficial?
You can even write this on your phone, on a notes app and you’re good to go.
Get ahead of everyone
Imagine doing this: waking up at 5 am, having your breakfast already prepared, your gym clothes ready, and then go do your thing. You finish your training, get in a whole better mood, then come back home and start working on your business or study at an early hour while everyone else is still in bed.
Suddenly the notion of time looks different, right?
A Change of Perspective
The majority of successful people wake up early in the morning and invest their time in things that can help them grow and evolve in all aspects of their life.
We underestimate the impact this technique of planning can have on our mental health. Working out not only helps you achieve your desired physique but improves the state of your mental health.
Add to this the time you can spend working on your skills, or studying for that upcoming exam. The hours and hard work can and will pay off.
Let’s put this into another perspective: the earlier you start, the earlier you finish a task and then you can go on with your day and do other things, you can even rest. It’s all up to you.
Other benefits are better cognitive function (this one is by far one the healthiest), improved quality of sleep, less stress (we all need this), and being more organized and productive and peaceful mornings.
In the long run, this will help your life to take a turn for the better. It all starts with a choice, a decision you can take for your own good.
I hope you enjoyed this post. I’ll try my best for the next one too. See you! :))
