I used to always be a night-person. I used to be at the peak of my energy by 9 PM and I start my work properly then. Due to that, I would always end up sleeping late and getting up late. And repeat the next day. 🌑
To be honest, I felt like that was the best schedule to have because it used to be really comfortable for me. Until I tried being a morning-person. ☀️
About a little more than 8 months back, I started noticing that although I would be at the peak of my energy by 9 PM, that didn’t last so long, and that the next day just goes on too sloppy until 9 PM hits again. So I thought to try out something new which could help me put in more focused work (and also get better sleep). So I tried being a morning-person.
It was hard. Really hard. I found it really difficult; difficult to sleep early, difficult to get up early, difficult to start work early, and so on. 😣
But then I tried to stay committed. Although I found it really difficult, I kept doing it anyway. I stayed consistent with sleeping earlier and getting up early.
And it worked!. Trust me, it actually did. And I absolutely loved it! I found so much more time in a day to work on the stuff that is important to me. I was more focused on my work. I loved getting up early, praying, and then getting that amazing cup of coffee. It is also one of the reasons why I get better (and longer) sleep now. 😎
Don’t get me wrong tho. I’m still not perfect in getting up at the same time and always maintaining it. And I still do struggle a little to get up on time, but its so much than it used to be.
This screenshot of my Alarm App could give you small glimpse into my struggle ✨
This would probably go on till 6 AM so that I make sure I get up. (I’m just exposing myself here 👀)
For a month, or a week, or atleast a day, try being a morning-person. And try to see how different it is from being a night-person and how much more time you could get in a day.
(Disclaimer: Being a morning-person is not for everyone. Maybe you do better and focus better being a night-person. But give both the routines a try before you decide on following one)
