I’m an early bird. Since… well since always. My parents told me, that I would wake them up even before 6 am when I was a kid. I barely wake up at 6 am anymore, but I don’t sleep longer than 8 am, which is still quite early for many people.
Whenever I tell people, that I wake up that early even on the weekends, they’re mostly shocked. I find that quite funny, because all those long sleepers simply don’t know what they’re missing out! In today’s post, I’ll talk you through the main reasons, why being an early bird is awesome!
You’re free to do whatever you like
The world is right to your feet. If you wake up early in the morning, and everyone else is still fast as sleep, then you can do whatever you want to. (as long as it isn’t too loud of course). I love this feeling of freedom. I usually have a tea, a small snack and then I either (depending on my mood) cuddle myself back into my bed to read a book or I get dressed to do a thousand and one things before breakfast. Both things, I absolutely love to do! 😉
You have more time for the things you love
If you wake up early, the day is longer, which means you have more time to do for what you need and what you want to do. I usually use the morning hours to update my blog and have a look around in all kind of social networks. If I have a lot going on in school, then it’s very helpful to be awake early. My mind is clearer and faster in the mornings (yep, I know, not what most people experience) and so I can get done a lot. Like that, my day won’t be filled only with boring work.
You’re more productive
This and my last point go hand in hand. If you start your day early with getting loads done, chances are great, that you’ll be continuing the day just like that. In the rare occasions where I slept longer than 9:30 am, I always felt so dizzy and tired, and I ended up hanging around on my couch doing more or less nothing. Nothing smart anyway. I mean it’s okay to have these days, it’s even good from time to time to have a lazy day, but I don’t like to be so demotivated the whole day. That’s why, my friend, being an early bird is what I want to be!
I find myself a lot more creative in the mornings. Somehow my brain spits out tons of ideas for all sort of blog posts, stories and more. I love to sit down, grab a pen and to put my thoughts onto paper. I’m always so eager to do it all at the same time and it’s like a chain reaction. Gosh, I love these moments!
The world is quiet and beautiful
I love the air and atmosphere in the mornings. I don’t know about you, but to me the world in the morning is so beautifully quiet and relaxing, that I have the feeling everything’s fine. Especially in summer, when the sun is rising that early! I have a calm start into the day and I’m looking forward to making all my plans happening.
So far so good, I think you guys get now that I love waking up early. It’s something that is a part of me and I like it. What about you? Are you an early bird or a night owl? Let’s have a discussion about all the pros and cons in the comment section! See you then!
