30 Days of Early Mornings

I must confess that I have never been a morning person.  My typical morning consists of waking up just briefly enough to turn off the alarm(s) on my phone and then hitting the snooze button at least four or five times before finally stumbling out of bed, usually skipping breakfast and running out the door.

It is easy to just throw my hands up in defeat, by accepting that I am simply not a morning person. But, there are some pretty strong arguments that support why there is value to waking up early.

Many of the most successful and productive people are early risers.  It makes sense because for most people, mornings provide a quiet, uninterrupted block of time.  During that time, it gives those successful early risers time to collect their thoughts and plan their day.

Waking up early also can provide healthy benefits like improving mental clarity and focus, helping to maintain a healthier diet, and improving sleep quality.

For the next 30 days, I will be focusing on making my mornings more meaningful by creating a morning routine and waking up early.

During this 30 Day Challenge, I hope to accomplish the following:

  • Wake Up Early with a single alarm (and NO SNOOZE Button!)
  • Eat a healthy breakfast every morning
  • Exercise for at least 20 minutes
  • Meditate and be more mindful
  • Make time each morning to plan the rest of my day
