“You have to have a dream so you can get up in the morning.” – Billy Wilder
Are you a morning person or are you one of the below ?
I LOVE mornings ! You could say that I’m a morning person ! If I wake up early, my day goes off pretty well. 🙂 Sure, I do have days where you have to drag me out of bed at 12 PM, but then who doesn’t love sleep, right ? 😛
Here are the top 5 reason I love mornings (and waking up early):
In today’s busy and technology infested world, there isn’t a time of day (or night) when people aren’t calling / mailing / texting you (That’s probably why I sleep with my phone on Airplane Mode). I’m pretty sure not too many people would go to the pains of waking up at 6 AM to speak to you !
Basically, it’s a time when I can just be with myself, relax and ponder.
2. OUTDOORS.FRESH AIR.EXERCISE.
Jogging is my favorite form of exercise. Plug in you headphones, listen to the music you love, and feel the fresh air as you jog / run / walk with the sun rising along with you. Heavenly it is, believe me !
3. PRAYER. PEACE. SERENITY.
I try my best to pray five times a day, but the peace and serenity I get from my morning prayers is unbeatable. It makes me calm and prepares me for all the challenges I have to face in the day.
4. LIST. PRIORITIZE. PLAN.
An extra 5-10 minutes in the morning are ideal to plan the day that lies ahead. I like to think of all that I have to get done, from the most exciting to the most boring tasks of the day. Then, I prioritize them and plan how to go about accomplishing them. Just knowing what you have to get done in the day gives you a head-start and makes it even easier.
Early mornings will automatically make you hungrier at an earlier time, and I love taking out time to fix myself a delicious yet healthy breakfast. Having the time to enjoy your breakfast rather than stuffing it down your throat really makes a difference !
If you’re inspired and want to wake up early now, here are some tips for you ! 🙂
