Early mornings aren’t for the weak. Heck, early mornings shouldn’t even be a thing, but I’ve come to the conclusion that I cannot get everything done in a day.
As I work to know my new community and become involved in ways that give me meaning, I have let a few things slip. In previous posts, I wrote about some of the goals I set for myself before I turned 30. Since then I have been working to “up my game” as an adult and professional.
After about a week, I started to hate less waking up early, and I think it is attributed to these three things.
1. Sleeping in your workout clothes – Yoga clothes are very comfortable! If I am already dressed to exercise, then I might as well get to the gym.
2. A good wake up alarm – I just started using the alarm called Barcode Alarm Clock. It is an annoying, yet effective alarm where you scan a barcode to set an alarm and you have to scan that same barcode to turn off your alarm. The idea is you scan a barcode not next to your bed so you physically have to get up to turn it off. If you are already up, then you might as well make it to the gym!
3. Accountability buddies – Everyone is trying to better themselves in some way. I like to tell different people my different goals, so its like I have a whole team helping me to keep motivated. You shouldn’t have one person be responsible for helping you achieve all your goals.
Like I said before, I constantly struggle with wanting to be a better person and just wanting to sleep past 8am
