Wake up, wake up – it’s a beautiful day.

All who wish to get up early in the morning and without the aid of an alarm clock:

in 10 easy steps

  1. I always hated the alarm clock. And so, I always ended up failing to listen to my clock within few days into a new year.
  2. We all wish to wake up early. We all know that it has so many benefits. But, we end up practicing it in breaching it.
  3. Initially, I thought, this was due to my own laziness. But, I started to dig deeper once I had found my love for morning – going for the run.
  4. I realized that first of all you need a clear sense of purpose to wake up each day. So, ask yourself, “what is that I can not afford to sleep so late and I gotta get going as early as possible?” In my case, it was my love to see the rising sun as I ran along.
  5. Now, half the work was done. I made a note of what all I did all day long.
  6. I realized that I was sleeping late. So, I started to work backwards. Why did I sleep late? Who were those devils stopping me?
  7. I made a list of things : watching late night movies, chatting with friends, eating my dinner too late and eating too much etc.
  8. Turned to the next page of my journal and sorted them all – one by one. It was reassembling the pieces of my life to fit them all together.
  9. The real cause of early rising is good sleep and timely sleep. You must get into bed in such a way that you are able to sleep for 7 hrs straight without any problem.
  10. Once the body Circadian Rhythm has been fixed, the biological clock becomes functional and you will throw the alarm clock out of the window or better archive it.

    Great post! Once I prioritized my life and was consistent, I was able to throw my alarm out the window too. It really is about cutting all of the distractions and focusing on what matters most.
