WARNING: If you’re not a morning person, you will be tempted to roll your eyes. Please don’t. I’m not a morning person either. I actually despise it. I start work at eleven every day. If I can be open minded and excited about this, you can too.
So here it goes. My public commitment… to become not necessarily a morning person, but a person who utilizes the morning.
Turning a desire into a ritual takes some serious willpower. I believe willpower to be like a muscle you can work out and strengthen. I know that with a ton of discipline I can become a person who takes advantage of each day. Life is short, this is no new news, and I’m not going to wait around for things to happen for me. LET ALONE SLEEP THROUGH THEM.
I hit snooze every. day. I’m typically very dramatic, but this is no exaggeration. I seriously hit snooze over and over everyday. Not anymore.
Why is this newfound idea of waking with the sun so important to me?
The morning has so much potential, so much opportunity. We’re fresh. Think about how you feel in the evening. If you’re planning to work out in the evening, you may have been dreading it all day. If you have bills to pay and companies to call, they’re closed, and now you’re stressed. In the morning, after a night’s rest, we’re more inclined to be positive!
Starting Monday morning, I will be waking up three hours earlier every day. I will work out in the morning. I will run errands in the morning. I will pack my lunch every morning. I will BLOG in the morning. I will take my time getting to work and not be rushed.
The best part is… I’M SO EXCITED. I KNOW how much this is going to alter my lifestyle for the better. I know it will be tough, and I can’t wait to keep y’all posted.
