Let me be clear…I don’t think I was born a morning person, I think I taught myself to be one. If that sounds like something you would like to become…then come on, here are my tips…
I go to bed around 10:30. I like to have a few kid-free hours before bed (and they go to sleep at 8:00), so I’m usually asleep between 10:15 and 10:30.
Sometimes…I’m sure I’m tired for a lot of reasons. I am a busy mom with two small kids who runs her own business…there are a multitude of reasons why I should be tired…but I’m not overly tired. I don’t ever sit around and think “gee, I’m so tired”. If that were the case, I’d get more sleep.
Listen, when I was pregnant and had small babies at home, all of these points went out the window. Those are the periods in your life when you’re just trying to survive. If I ever don’t feel well, I’ll sleep. If I ever really feel tired, I’ll sleep. There are always exceptions in life. I just know that if given the choice on a perfectly normal day, I would pick waking up early over sleeping in a few hours.
So there you have it…I’m an early bird. It’s not for everyone…but I do think it’s for some.
Happy Tuesday people…tomorrow, the first edition of Ask Away with Shay :).
