The Magic of Rising with the Sun

There's something undeniably enchanting about waking up early before the world has fully stirred. As the sun stretches its golden arms across the horizon, early risers are treated to a treasure trove of unique experiences that set the tone for the day. There is now a lot of scientific evidence that morning light is magical to a regulated circadian rhythm. If you haven't felt sleepy at the right time for a while, try waking up early and going into nature to have morning walks for two days. (You are welcome.)

Morning Light Magic: Your Key to a Regulated Circadian Rhythm

The Hush of Dawn: In the early hours, a serene stillness blankets the world. It's a time when nature takes a deep breath before the bustling commotion of the day begins. This tranquil silence is a canvas on which you can paint your thoughts and intentions for the day ahead.

The Gift of Solitude: Waking up early offers you precious moments of solitude, a chance to savor a cup of coffee or tea. It's a time when your thoughts can unfurl without interruption, allowing you to reflect, plan, or simply "be".

A Front-Row Seat to Nature's Beauty: As the first rays of light spill over the horizon, they paint the sky with hues that are as fleeting as they are breathtaking. Watching the world awaken, with birds singing their melodious greetings and dew-kissed flowers stretching toward the sun, is a spectacle that's worth setting an early alarm for.

Time to Savor Slowly: Waking up early grants you the luxury of time – time to relish a leisurely breakfast, engage in a morning workout, or delve into a book that's been waiting patiently on your shelf. It's a chance to start your day on your terms, without the rush.

An Energy Boost Like No Other: There's a certain energy in the early hours that's invigorating and refreshing. It's as if the world is extending an invitation to seize the day with renewed vitality. This natural energy boost can set a positive tone for your entire day, infusing you with a sense of purpose and determination.

A Private Meeting with Productivity: Those precious morning hours, when distractions are at a minimum, offer an opportunity to tackle tasks without the buzz of emails, or incoming calls. It's like having a private meeting with yourself, where you can accomplish more in a fraction of the time.

A Nurturing Routine: Creating a morning routine that caters to your well-being becomes a delight when you wake up early. These rituals become anchors that ground you and set a positive tone for the day. I have learned and practiced some powerful morning routines with this workshop called the 5AM Challenge by Josh Froc which I highly recommend.

Embracing the Day's Canvas: Early mornings offer you the chance to shape the canvas of your day. It's a time when you can map out your intentions, set goals, and establish the mindset you want to carry with you. With each sunrise, you're given a fresh start, a new chance to create, explore, and make your mark.

Witnessing Your Evolution: Waking up early can be a personal journey of growth. As you discipline your body and mind to embrace the early hours, you'll witness your ability to adapt, find joy in the quiet moments, and make the most of the hours that others might sleep through. For me, my productivity and well-being literally doubled by waking up early. I do have support from my personal trainer who is obsessed with sleep quantity and quality. I recommend you also get support also to start this exciting journey, and discover your new life.
