What Gets You Up in the Morning?

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

(ThySistas.com) Did you know that most successful people in life, are up at 5 am in the morning, why is that?  It’s because they see the value in starting their day earlier than the hustle and bustles that life throws at us.  They know true productivity, means beginning your day peacefully and not being rushed into it.  Getting up earlier than your household may not be easy to do at first, but with practice and consistency, you are creating a habit for success.

If you are a wife and mother, with small children it is essential that you start your day before everyone in your house awakes and bombards you with their needs.  You can use that hour of “me time” to read your devotionals, pray or meditate, journal and plan for the rest of your day.  Taking those 60 minutes to yourself, will eventually motivate you to get up in the morning.  You will notice that you are no longer stressed and your house members will appreciate you for that.  As women, we are the organizers usually in our households, no matter what our relationship statuses are.

If you’re a career woman and you noticed that as soon as you walk into the office, you immediately get thrown into boardrooms for meetings, conference calls, responding to email correspondences, etc.  What if you got up an hour early, viewed what’s ahead for your day and prioritized your calendar and schedule, before you order your latte at your local café?  It will make all the difference in your world.

What gets you up in the morning can mean different things to different women.  Some women enjoy waking up one hour early just to get a good work out in before their day starts.  It helps get their blood flowing and they feel great throughout their busy day.  It motivates them to eat healthier choices at lunch than that greasy cheeseburger from that burger franchise.  Their metabolism is burning with excitement and so on.  They get all of this joy, from just being motivated to get up earlier.

Other benefits of motivating you to get up earlier are improving your sleep patterns, eating a healthy and balanced breakfast and you are not rushing through your morning commutes.  You can begin your routine of getting up early by using 15-minutes increments.  First try getting up at 6:45 am if you normally wake up at 7am.  Then next week, try getting up at 6:30 am and so forth.  If you can go full force from the start, wake up at 6 am (but go to bed, one hour earlier than usual), and record your results or benefits in a journal daily, of what you got accomplished.

Develop a reward system for getting up early.  When we reward ourselves, it encourages us to do, even the more.  If you wake up early, three days in a row, treat yourself to that cookie that you’ve been wanting to eat.  Increase the rewards as you increase the days that you get up early until it becomes a habit.  Don’t make it something so hard to do that it doesn’t motivate you to do it, eventually.

Whatever motivates you to get up early, do it.  Don’t hesitate to be proud of getting done with a lot before the sun even comes up.  You will be happier as you become a natural early riser.  You will reap the benefits of more hugs and kisses in the morning from your spouse and children because they will see that you are not yelling and screaming at them, first thing in the morning because your frustrated and rushing to get them off on their day.  Getting up early is a great way to get your day started in total peace and gratitude and the law of attraction will always reward you for that.
