I have a dream. That one day we can rise early in the morning without feeling dead inside. Well, if you think that was overdramatic let me ask you, how does it feel to wake up at 5 am in the morning every single day? Horrible is the correct answer to that if we are honest with each other. And nobody wants that. BUT on the other hand you do have more time. And that is actually something I want. So this month I’m starting my own little Early March Challenge, feel free to join me in this disturbing project!
I do have an irregular schedule at my job. Sometimes I have to wake up at 5 am, sometimes at 6 am and sometimes I don’t have to be up until 10 am. On the weekends it depends on the plans I have. How can a human being live like this and actually feel awake at one point of the day?! This is crazy. I always feel like I don’t get enough sleep and can’t really adjust to one time because I’m getting up at different times throughout the week. That’s why this challenge feels like a good idea. And now that I really want this blog thing to work I will need more time to write, edit pictures and find new topics and recipes to write about. In the early morning I’m the only one awake so it will be nice and quiet here and i can start my day without rushing. More time for work related tasks also means that I hopefully will have more time for myself and reading and relaxing as well but we shall see how tired I will be from getting up that early. I really hope I’m not going to fall sleep asleep during the day all the time, then it would be just pointless to get up at 5 for more time. I do love a good nap, don’t get me wrong, but that isn’t what I look for in this challenge. Maybe a nice side effect from time fo time but nothing I will do know a daily bases. At least I hope so. Wish me luck.
I need to get a consistent circadian rhythm because I notice that my mind is steadier when I feel well rested and I’m not annoyed as easily. That is something my boyfriend as well will benefit from, as well as our relationship in general because I do feel worked up a lot often from the tiniest things in life I then blow up massively. Yes, I am a nervous wreck. And if getting up every day at the same time can help me even just a little bit with it I will do that. With getting up at the same time every day I also want to implement a few routines into my mornings. My easy laid back weekend morning ritual is nice, but maybe a little bit too laid back. I want to get more productive, so I need to keep on moving in some kind of way. Maybe I will incorporate another challenge in this – more unofficially and on the big maybe side – like for example a squat challenge or something similar to that. But first of all I want to wake up at 5 and stay awake while getting shit done, so let’s wait with that booty action at that absurd time.
Since there are people who survive this way of living I think I will do too, and that it is possible. At least in theory. My morning routine will contain a lot of coffee I fear. That, and a lot of swearing as soon as the alarm goes off. Right now I can’t really imagine how I’m going to get through this without loosing my mind and sleeping all day, but I will give you an update when I’m halfway through. Let’s see if this works out. If you want to join me on this, please share your experience with me, I love to hear how it worked out for you! I will update you on Instagram as well under the hashtag #myearlymarchchallenge. Let us all become early birds. But just to let you know, today I got up at 5 am and I feel like shit.
With that being said…
Peace out xo
