Wake Up Earlier
I can proudly say that I have been getting my 8 cups of water for the past week. Simply by keeping my large water bottle near me at all times has proved to be the best solution for this problem.
It's kind of motivating to accomplish a goal, even a simple one such as drinking enough water. I feel more confident in my next step to a healthier, happier and productive lifestyle which is...
Waking up early.
Time and time again I have read so many amazing benefits to waking up early. It has proven to be a very difficult goal me for because I'm the type of person who stays up late. In fact it's 11:30 p.m. right now and I don't feel tired.
During the week when Sidney has to go to school we wake up at 8:30 a.m. giving ourselves less than half an hour to get ready. That's not a lot of time and usually involves a lot of rushing around like a maniac. Not the best way to start the day, right? Talk about a stressful beginning. Plus, I'm just a complete grouch in the mornings. I can honestly say that I'm the one that everyone in my family is scared to wake up. Pretty sure Sidney's taking after me.
I'm hoping that in the future I will willingly wake up at 6 a.m., or even 5 a.m., but I know that is not realistic for the time being. Instead my goal is to wake up at 8 a.m. sharp. Without hitting snooze! And the kicker - I want to do this on weekends, too (as of right now my weekend wake-up time? 10 a.m.!)!
I'm starting tomorrow. I'm not going to start a movie right now. I'm not going to read an entire novel right now. I'm not even going to sign into Etsy! After this post it's bed time.
Okay, I might read for a little while... But for no more than an hour! Then it's bed time. Besides, once I reach my wake up time goal of 6a.m. I can look forward to watching the sunrise.
Are you a morning person? Or a night owl?
