I wanna be a morning person

Thursday, August 16, 2012

Hey there everyone,
I want to be a morning person. I love the mornings, the quietness before a day begins, the oneness of nature, etc. But I can't get my but out of bed to enjoy it. I would love to get up before work and have time to meditate, talk to God and do a little exercise. One of my excuses has always been I can't do these things because I don't have time. I don't want to use this excuse anymore and I want those mornings for myself. My apnea machine has been helping my quality of sleep so I can't place blame there anymore either.
I know some of you are saying it's not that hard, just get up when the alarm goes off but it is that hard. I have even read books on how to make the most of mornings (sad!!). What's it going to take?
I guess if I want it enough I will do it is what I tell myself but am I really that lazy and lack of desire?
Any suggestions are welcome! Thx

    Thx for the advice. I'm trying. Gonna work on getting up 10 to 15 miutes early for a week to try and start to adjust. Once I'm out of bed it's ok, just making my eyes open, well that's the challenge. I will do this!

    I wasn't a morning person until the first baby came along. He cured me.

    We're all different. Personally, I think I'm allergic to being up after 10pm at night, so mornings aren't usually a problem for me. I've always read that you should work towards it gradually. Go to bed and get up 15 minutes earlier for a few days to adjust, then another 15 minutes, then another, etc. Might be easier than trying to make a 1-2 hour (or more!) adjustment to your body's routine all at one time.

    Chris Downie talks about his experience with similar to this in The Spark....I am starting to relate to his motivation. It is encouraging! Be positive and make the adjustment. Tough in the beginning, but well worth it.... emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I have a hard time with this as well, especially now that the nights are getting longer again. I get up at 5:00am for work on weekdays (I start at 6:00am) and even though I KNOW I am going to get used to it after a while and I am going to feel better doing it, it is so hard to set the alarm for 4:00am and talk myself into getting out of bed. I'm already in bed at 8:30pm each night as it is, if not earlier!

I'm going to try again tomorrow ... let's do this!
