Start your morning 30 minutes earlier than usual. You’ll be amazed at the amount of things you can accomplish in just half an hour. Better yet, you’ll feel more energized to start the day!
A Beautiful Sunrise

Here’s how a typical morning works for me. Alarm rings. I hit snooze. Just in case I don’t hit the snooze button, I have a second alarm for back-up. And a third. What happens is I end up in bed 30 minutes more than usual. The ironic thing is I do get extra sleep but it’s interrupted by 10 minute alarm intervals. That doesn’t make for a very restful sleep now, does it? I wake up crankier too.
So, fine. If I want to wake up earlier, I might as well commit to it. If I typically wake up at 6, then I have to wake up at 5.30. No snooze buttons allowed. That was an experiment for a few days and it made a pretty good impact on my day!
