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
-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.
