In the morning, I typically don’t “want” to wake up early. I enjoy the warmth, comfort and safety of my bed. Sleeping is great, there is nothing to do but rest, relax and let go!
But when nature calls and my body awakens in the mid dawn hours, I am finding that by the time I get back into, or think I “want” to get back into bed, I don’t. It’s usually 7am and I am ready for the day.
There are a few things at play here. I have noticed that once I get up, even if I feel really tired before getting out of bed, I wake up more as I move around the house making it less necessary or appealing to get back into bed. I am also in a part of my life where I am choosing to do some really cool things that I feel very inspired and alive about. Once I get up, I feel motivated for my day. There is blogging after all and my dance/workout routine in the mornings and then there is talking with my Higher Self and/or the triggered younger self inside myself. There is SO MUCH TO ENGAGE IN and I have the TIME for it early in the morning!
I used to sleep in until 9 or 10am easily, sometimes 11:30 (I still do if I am REALLY tired!!!).
These days I get up and get out of bed, even on WEEKENDS, at 7 pr 8am (9:30am is sleeping in for me now!).
What motivates you to get out of bed early?
