If you want to change your life, you need time.
How are you going to get that time? By waking up earlier than you normally do.
If you normally wake up at 5 am, it’s 4 am now.
If you normally wake up at 9 am, it’s 8 am now.
You get the idea.
Then use this one hour to change your life. Use it to do what you know you have to do. This is your hour. This is where everything changes.
How to wake up early?
The trick in waking up early is to go to bed early.
And let’s be honest: Are you doing anything productive after 10 pm anyway?
If you do great, otherwise go to sleep.
Watching television two hours a day accumulates to one month a year. One month of only watching tv and nothing else. No sleep, no dinner, just watching television.
One month you could use to reinvest in yourself! Just imagine what you could achieve in that month?
Next time, you think about why your life doesn’t change, consider how much time you are wasting with watching television, playing video games, or social media?!
I know it’s not easy to change your habits. Especially if it involves waking up earlier. But give it a try.
Try it for a week or two. If you don’t like it, you can still say: “Waking up early is not for me, but at least I tried.“
- Go to bed earlier. A normal adult needs 7 to 8 hours of sleep every night.
- So if you want to wake up at 5 am, set an alarm at 9 pm. Now you have one hour to wind down before going to bed at 10 am.
- Use the time you just created to change your life. That way, you might achieve more till 10 am than most people do all day.
