My Next Step - Waking Up Earlier

My wake up time goal.

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? 

Good night,

    Getting up earlier is something I'm currently working on. It's so hard...and my "baby" is 18!

    1. Hey, thanks for following! I'm following you back, you have some great diy projects! I think I'm in love with your built-in bookcase.

  2. Oh I am not a morning person at all! Thanks for linking up on the blog hop! I'm now following your blog. Stop by and say hi sometime!


    1. Thanks for following! I'm following you back. Cute blog :)

  3. I can be a morning person - when I want to be. I can also be a total night owl. I guess it all just depends. Today I got up at 3 am to take mother-in-law to the airport. Since I've been up since that time, I'm thinking tonight will not be a night owl night!

    1. I can get up early if I have to, or if something very exciting is happening that day I will jump out of bed way too early. But if there's nothing going on, I don't have to rush to work or I have stuff to do that I'm dreading I have a very difficult time getting up.

      And 3a.m.?! That's crazy! I personally wouldn't be able to stay up much past supper time.


I truly enjoy reading all of your comments! I read every one of them, and do my best to reply to each of you!
