I am not a morning person. I enjoy late nights and sleeping in. If I could I wouldn’t stir from under the blankets till well after 10 am. Yet last month I decided that I would try the whole “early bird” thing and get that “worm”. For about two weeks I started trying to go to bed before midnight and getting up before seven. Oyi, its hard!!! Some days were better then other. (Actually gave up completely during Jen’s ten-day visit.)
This week I was determined to resume the sleeping pattern transformation. Following Benjamin Franklin’s advice of “early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise” I went to bed the past two nights before 11pm. Franklin lied, or it’s only gender specific, or maybe it has be more of a life-style-thing not just a one-time-deal. Whatever the case my morning experiences did not consisted of me jumping out of bed “bright eyed and bushy tailed”
I think I hit snooze four times before I finally got up, did my morning routine, started my rice maker (a wonderful invention) and went back to bed for another hour and half of shut eye. So much for being productive first thing in the morning. I realise that sleep patterns don’t change over night (Matthew’s sleep charts are proof of that) so I am going to keep going with the current method. Without the use of coffee, does anyone have any tried and true methods on how to function before 8 am? I am open for suggestions.
