I was really busy these days so I didn’t do any updates on this 30 days challenge, but everything is going great!
Most of the times I wake up 5 minutes before my first alarm and I’m fully awake. At this point I would have to force myself to go back to sleep! This is huge progress because when I started I was REALLY tired when I woke up at 5 AM.
Productivity wise, I accomplish more since I started doing this. For me, it is really hard to be productive after 6 pm for some reason….Even when I did, I was not fully focused and it was basically a waste of time…. Even if I woke up at 10 AM for example, after 6 PM it was really hard to work, so it didn’t leave me a lot of time to work and get stuff done. This is why waking up at 5 AM makes me more productive…When it is 6 PM, I’ve already accomplished so much and now I can fully relax.
Since I started this 30 days challenge a lot of people told me that everybody have the same amount of hours in their day and that waking up early doesn’t change anything.
I don’t agree at all. It is all about the psychology. As I said, most people have a really hard time being productive after 6 PM (and some people have a hard time but they are convinced they are able to do it…but that’s another story..). When you wake up early, it’s like if you are smarter with your energy. Being productive is all about using your energy properly. It is about focusing 100% of your energy at the task at hand, whether it is work or relaxing, and for some reason when I wake up early it is easier for me to do that.
I’m going to continue until day 30 and probably that I’m not going to wake up at 5 AM during the weekend, but I’m definitely going to continue to wake up early during the week.
