HOW TO WAKE UP AT 5 AM: MY 30 DAYS CHALLENGE DAY 1
Woke up at 5 am using my alarm with the song (I use the same song as when I did the firewalk at Unleash The Power Within Seminar). My brain was already making excuses like : “meh, just sleep another 5 minutes, why are you doing this? Why would you wake up at 5 even during the weekends? You didn’t sleep enough last night just sleep more….”
Once you are aware that your brain is going to work against you especially in the beginning, it is easier to restructure these thoughts in a way that is more helpful. “Oh look, my brain coming up with excuses again…let’s not listen to it and wake up”.
The rewards also helped…as I woke up, I immediately shifted my focus to the decaf coffee I was about to make and the bacon (Yeah, I know it sounds strange but it works).
Overall it was quite easy to wake up at 5 AM this morning. I fell asleep at like 11:30 pm though, so tonight I have to make sure to go to bed early. My girlfriend is coming over later today and I already told her that she will have to leave early because of my 5 AM challenge. She knows I have to go to bed early now! I’m going to not take any naps during the day so this way I get tired early tonight and I fall asleep earlier than yesterday.
Please leave a comment below or let me know any questions you have. I’d love to hear what you think!
