It’s like the classic running quote: “Somewhere, right now, someone is training while you are not. When you race him, he will win.”
So I get up early because I believe it’s worth it. Here’s some of the benefits you can get from doing it, and, as a bonus, here’s how to actually do it! It’s time to wake up…
Top 10 reasons to get up early every day:
10. Learn. You can browse seven websites in a row (news, news, gossip, financial, gossip, sports, weather) without being interrupted by a single e-mail. You’re now smarter for your entire day.
9. This early, it really is all about you. You get a few minutes of pure “you” time. For me, it’s waking up and making coffee. While I’m doing that, I can pet Karma and NASA, and not in just a “scratch behind the ears once because I’m late” way. I can sit with them as I drink my first cup of coffee and enjoy the calming effect that a pet has on you. I have no doubt this helps to set my mood for the day.
