I don’t know about you, but I have never been a “morning person” in the sense that I have never found it easy to wake up early. I have always struggled with this – since I was a teenager!
A Lofty Goal
However, this year I made the goal to start waking at least 30 minutes before Harrison (my 2 year old) so that I could be “fully awake” and ready for the day before he woke up.
Friends – let me tell you – it has been a game changer since I started waking up early and before my child. A complete life-changer!
It has been over a month now that I have been consistently setting my alarm to wake up at least 30 minutes before my son, and I am convinced that this is what every other successful person in the world does – because of how productive this small adjustment has made me.
How Life has Changed
Since waking up early, I have noticed that my days are more productive, I get more of my to-do list checked off, I am happier and more positive, I eat healthier, I sleep better, and I just feel better overall.
I recently filmed a video where I go over exactly how I get up earlier, what all has changed since doing so, and more. If you would like to watch it, I will leave it below. You can also subscribe to my YouTube channel for more videos like it and videos with women and mother’s lifestyle content.
Questions for You
I am so curious – do you wake up before you children? Or do you sleep in every last minute until they wake up (which is what I did for nearly 2 years with Harrison)? Let me know in the comments! If you do wake up before your children, please comment below with any tips or tricks you have on getting yourself to do this – to help others out who may be wanting to try it.
