Wake up early

Waking up earlier to extend your day is a tip I’ve encountered in numerous books.

At first, I dismissed it as impractical, wondering if these authors were out of touch. However, I decided to give it a shot. Starting with setting my alarm 15 minutes earlier, I gradually shifted my wake-up time until I now wake up naturally around 4:30 a.m. every day, which has become a great habit!

What surprised me was how this simple change affected my entire day. By going to bed earlier, around 9:30–10 p.m., I ensure I get enough rest.

Waking early gives me a head start; I can complete tasks, exercise, or work on personal projects without any distractions, especially from my kids who are still asleep.

This early morning time, between 5:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m., has become my magic time. During these hours, my creativity soars, and I achieve more than I do during any other part of the day.

My recommendation to you is to try this gradual approach. Begin by waking up 15 minutes earlier this week, and continue the trend next week. Notice how it impacts your productivity and overall well-being. Share your experience in the comments; I’m curious to hear your results.

By the way, one rule I strictly follow is never hitting the snooze button—it disrupts the rhythm I’ve established.

What time are you planning to wake up? Let me know; I’d love to hear about your journey towards a more productive morning routine!
