Let me start this entire thing off by making clear that some days sleeping in is 100% necessary. I want to make that clear because I will be honest that I am not one of those people that just spring out of bed on a chilly, rainy Sunday morning when I have the opportunity to maybe sleep a bit longer then my typical 5am wake up call. But, I will say, that 5am wake up call has had massive, positive impact on my life. Don’t believe me, here, I’ll break it down for you. (See also –The top things that help me jump start my day.)
How it all goes:
I get it, it is hard to get out of bed and I get the question a lot… how do you do it? Well there is two answers to that. One, it is my job. I am in the fitness industry and typically you have weird hours and sometimes they can start very early. Two, I just do it. I get out of bed. Simple as that. I do not talk myself out of it (I may hit snooze once), but other then that up and go. Two feet on the floor – lets go! (That’s the pep talk I give myself).
Those of you that maybe have late hours for work or just really different schedules, maybe the answer for you is not 5am, but maybe just 1 hour earlier then what you typically wake at. (try it and see what happens)
