So I’ve been poring through research on how to wake up early.
It’s a skill I’ve been trying to develop for quite some time. But, for whatever reason, my internal resistance system just won’t let it happen.
Maybe you’re in the same boat.
Some of the advice I’m finding seems sound…
But a lot of it is also downright bogus.
I’d like to share with you some of the nonsense I stumbled on today.
Here was the tip:
Get excited about waking up in the morning.
Now, first of all, let me just say, I actually do agree with this tip… to an extent. And the reason I agree with it is because of… well… Christmas.
Many of us know how easy it was to get up in the morning when there were gifts waiting for us under the tree. As soon as our eyes opened, we popped out of bed bright-eyed and bushy-tailed ready to start the day. No problem at all.
So I know there’s some merit to this tip.
BUT — and this is a BIG BUT — there’s not always something to get excited about. Yes, you can create something to get excited about, but, for me, it’s never been quite that effective.
And to make matters worse, the video I was watching went on to say something like:
You’ll want to do this for at least 30 days to get used to it. The first 10 days will be the hardest. The next 10 days will get easier. And then by day 30, you’ll be off the races and waking up early no problem!
You’re telling me the secret to waking up early is to drag myself through 30 days of torture until I’m ‘used to it’?
Don’t you think I’d already be doing that if I could?
What kind of advice is that?
Anyway, enough venting.
It’s obvious I’m still looking for an answer to the waking up early conundrum.
And not some ridiculous answer that appears to work in theory…
But rather an EFFECTIVE answer that I know can work for anyone.
Seem a little too dreamy? Maybe.
But if I find it, I promise you’ll be the first to know.
And when you’re ready
