HOW TO WAKE UP AT 5 AM: MY 30 DAYS CHALLENGE DAY 9

Day 9

Woke up without any problems…Was a little bit tired because I had to go somewhere with a few friends and I ended up coming home later, but I still managed to wake up at 5 AM. The hardest part so far really is to go to bed early. I’m just not used to it.

HOW TO WAKE UP AT 5 AM: MY 30 DAYS CHALLENGE DAY 7

Day 7

Had to use my Step up of bed Alarm for the first time this morning! The step out of bed alarm is an app that I downloaded. It forces you to walk for a certain time while you hold your phone. This way, you have no choice but to wake up. For some reason I closed my two other alarms without even realizing it this morning…Good thing I had the Step Out Of Bed alarm programmed for 5 minutes after!

HOW TO WAKE UP AT 5 AM: MY 30 DAYS CHALLENGE DAY 6

Day 6

Woke up at 5AM but said to myself: mehh, let’s just lay there for another 10 minutes…

Bad Idea. I woke up like one hour later. I didn’t make it this morning basically because I went back to sleep.

It’s really hard to change this habit because when you wake up in the morning, you are not really awake and it’s like if you don’t take smart decisions. You can’t rely on willpower to do it, because early in the morning like that, you are not even awake yet…It’s like if you have no willpower. It has to become a habit and it takes time.

The good news is I FELT REALLY BAD ABOUT IT. It means the habit is starting to kick in. It means I associate a lot of bad stuff about NOT waking up at 5 AM and a lot of good stuff to waking up at 5 AM.

HOW TO WAKE UP AT 5 AM: MY 30 DAYS CHALLENGE DAY 5

Day 5

Went to bed a little bit late the day before but I woke up at 5 AM without any problems…

It’s not normal to me to wake up at 5 am and go to bed early. I wouldn’t think I would adjust that quickly to be honest, but I’m only on day 5 so I don’t want to be over confident. Sometimes it’s when you think you are in control that you lose focus.

HOW TO WAKE UP AT 5 AM: MY 30 DAYS CHALLENGE DAY 4

Day 4

Can’t believe I woke up at 5 AM during the weekends…I think I’ve never done that in the past! I loved it though because it makes me way more productive. By the time it is 1:00 pm I already accomplished what most people will accomplish in their day. I could literally just stop working by 1:00 pm and go by the pool and tan all day.

That’s what I love the most about Online marketing: I can control my time…This is what freedom is all about.

pool gymRight now my schedule is made in a way that from 1 pm to 3 pm I go to the gym and I go to the pool. My gym has a really nice outdoor pool and it only takes me about 30 min to workout….so I have about one hour and a half to just relax by the pool.

When I used to work in finance I was not able to do that. I was working from 9 to 5…The problem is that the sun is mostly out only from 9 to 5…so you don’t get to tan by the pool. It’s literally impossible to do it with that kind of job. That’s why I call anybody that work in an office 9 to 5 jobs slaves. They are not free, they don’t control how they spend their time.

Anyways, had no problem waking up at 5:00 am this morning! Had no problem going to bed early yesterday too. Everything works perfectly fine. I think the reason why it works so well is because this is not the first time I change a habit and I know how it works and what it takes. I’m used to it and I have the tools to do it. I use a lot of CBT exercises and exercises that I have learned over the years in seminars and by reading self-development books.

HOW TO WAKE UP AT 5 AM: MY 30 DAYS CHALLENGE DAY 3

Day 3

Woke up at 5:00 Am, and didn’t waste time in bed like yesterday. As soon as I woke up, I got up and did a 10 min meditation while sitting in my bed.

Was really easy to wake up at 5 AM today actually, compared to yesterday.

One exercise that I do that I learned by reading CBT books is to take a sheet of papers and draw a line in the middle of the sheet. On the left side, you come up with reasons why doing this behavior ( in my case, waking up at 5 AM) is great and on the other sides, you write the negative consequences on the behavior.  This is an exercise that is really simple but works and I do it everyday in my morning routine (that I call the Freedom Routine).

Advantages of Waking up early:

-Makes me more productive

-Build discipline

-No regrets

-Puts me in a good mood

Disadvantages of waking up early

-Requires some efforts

-Must go to bed earlier

When you compare the advantages versus the disadvantages, it is really easy to see that the benefits outweighs the disadvantages and it gives your brain clarity. By having clarity, it will be easier for you to change the habit.
