The Importance of Mornings
I love the mornings even though I was not always a proponent of the early mornings. However, for the past couple of years, I have been getting up early and going to bed much earlier in order to get roughly seven to eight hours of sleep a night during the week.
During the morning hours, I find that I am more alert, able to focus more easily, and everything just feels easier. So, if I need to tackle something that requires a lot of attention to detail and concentration, I will have a greater chance of being successful in the morning hours versus towards the end of the day, when I am more tired. It is always good to know your “peak hours” in order to set yourself up for success. I am really glad that I made the move to getting up early and going to bed a bit earlier. Even on the weekends we are now getting up earlier, which provides more time for us to enjoy the mornings together. I encourage you to take advantage of the early morning hours — where so much more can be accomplished and enjoyed!
