I have been thinking lately about the merits of getting up at 0500. And in reading that you might think that I have gone mad. Maybe I have gone mad but that is a separate issue.
The thing about getting up so early is that it allows me to get stuff done in the morning. I can go off to work knowing that a few nice tally marks have been added to my to-list – meaning I can try and relax when I get home and not have to worry about anything.
Of course this is me we’re talking about so there is always some worry.
It will take a while to get used to. They say it takes a month of doing something for a habit to be formed – so a way to go yet.
There is a health angle to this as well. Waking up early means I will sometimes get very little sleep. And they say that there is a connection between sleep and longevity. I find myself wondering how the maths works out on that one. How much longer would a person getting an eight hour average live vs a 6 hour average? If the difference was negligible the 8 hour people might spend their extra years sleeping.
Right now (For me it is Wednesday) it is almost time for work. This morning has gone alright. I have done my meditation, finished my book, done some housework, and of course finished this blog post.
I hope you’ve had a wonderful Sunday.
See you next week.
I just wanted to say that I have checked this post. I really have. Unfortunately my particular combination of dyslexia and dyspraxia makes it really hard for me to spot typos. Please enjoy and I’ll try not to make too many errors.
