How to become a morning person

In an email from a blogger friend she wrote, “I don’t know how you fit this all in.” She’s referring to how I make working, being a mum of two young girls, a wife and having the time to run a website work.

If I’d replied and said, “It’s easy… all you have to do is this and that!” I would have been lying. What is true is that becoming a morning person has made life easier for me. Making the decision wake up at 5.00am means I can have my “me time”. Since there are no distractions at that time of the morning, I have the chance to plan my day, exercise, read a book, mediate and maybe listen to a podcast. Sometimes, I even bake or slow cook our meals.   

Is it possible to be a morning person? Yes, it is. If you’re a mum and you’re struggling with not having time for yourself, I’d highly recommend starting your day a bit earlier. The only disadvantage is your body will have to get used to waking up at 5.00am – and (if you are like me) you’ll not be able to have a lie in again!
