Waking up in the morning

by oneafrikan on June 2, 2005

Steve Pavlina has an excellent article on “How to Become an Early Riser“, which I really identify with. In my early 20’s I was also a night owl, frequently working through the night into the next day, probably just because I had the energy to do so.

Now, I’ve found that it’s anti-productive for me. I’ve also found that on the days that I do get up early, I really do feel a lot better, pretty much about everything. I’ve also found that adding exercise in the morning before breakfast (ala, Body for Life) gives me more energy, makes me feel more alive and keeps me alert during the day. Promise.

My fault has been to adjust my sleeping / rising times as Steve described. So, from now on I’m going to try do what he says:

So if you want to become an early riser (or just exert more control over your sleep patterns), then try this:
Go to bed only when you’re too sleepy to stay up, and get up at a fixed time every morning.

He’s also written a follow up article, How to Become an Early Riser – Part II, which I’m gonna read now. Update: A good read as well, especially the points about the time you make for yourself.

Thanks Steve!

Oh hallo!

I just read above comment. I agree with this very muchly.
In my country we are all expected to sleep a lot. We eat german sausages and have an oreo smoothie and then we sleep at set times.
This is very silly. The makers of this site, must be german!

Silly silly silly!

Much love
