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!
If you decide to try it, these are the tips show you how to become a morning person
- Stop saying, “I’m not a morning person.”
- Ask yourself, “What is at stake?” For me, it is not having a productive day.
- Plan your Sleep. Go to bed earlier. I’m asleep by 9.00pm… pushing it 10.00pm.
- At the beginning, use an alarm clock (until your body gets accustomed to waking up at 5.00am).
- Don’t leave the alarm clock by your bedside. You want to get out of bed to turn it off.
- Drink a glass of warm water and a cup of coffee… it wakes you up and gets you going.
- Commit to doing it for 42 days. If it doesn’t work for you… at least, you’ll know you have tried.
