So it is 4:45 in the morning as of the moment I write this out. Lately, I have been reading out a lot about people getting success in doing what you need to do first thing of the day. They say it helps you defeat procrastination at will.
It is really hard waking up so early, and I am very aware of that. It actually took me weeks to beat myself every morning as I wake up late, and run late for work.
How I started is that I set up the phone alarm at 4am, 5am and 5:30 am. Good thin with smartphones, you can also put a message as it beeps the sound. I put fancy message like say a greeting as the first thing I say when I wake up. Or run for you life, it’s healthy for your body.
It actually didn’t work at first. All I hear afterwards are complain from people around the house getting disturbed by the noise as it wakes them as well. It was only good for my dad since really need to wake up that early.
Couple of weeks after, I started to open my eyes when it buzz, then doze off again. It’s like that until I learn to hit the snooze button, but still no luck of getting up very early. It went on the snooze every 10mins, and it took months with that kind of scenario.
I start sleeping earlier, and as much as I could avoid dinner, I would. Somehow it started to feel waking up lightly in the morning. I may still not get up early, but at least I can keep my eyes open a minute of two before I dozing again.
Until one morning I learned to lifts butt in the air, and have my body liquid and blood flow on my head actually made me stand up a alive. I was able to get up one hour earlier that the normal days.
So I decided to do a head stand while leaning on the wall; my hand supporting my head for a minute or two. Viola! I was able to get up an hour earlier than the normal routine.
Couple of days later, I was able to wake up at 4am. See my father prepping himself so I snooze for 10mins, then get up on the next alarm.
And you know what? It’s 5:15 as of moment I am finishing this write up. Tomorrow, I’ll hope to write again and share this moment how I came about writing this message out.
Have a great day ahead!
