Getting up at 5am on the weekends sounds nuts to some people, but I love it. On Sat and Sunday I have no work, less distractions… It’s pure ME time.
What about missing precious sleep?
Sure, I have to give up sleeping in. But instead of focusing on the one thing I’m missing, I think about the many things I’m gaining. Inner peace, more exercise, watching sunrises, reading, learning, more hobbies, productivity, structure, forming good daily habits, etc.
I don’t get up for work. I get up for myself. Every day.
Have a great weekend!
