The morning hours are so important. Your day will likely reflect the energy that you started it with. Good energy or bad energy. Tense vs. calm. Nothing is worse than starting your day by running around the house looking for your car keys, already late for work. You didn’t have time to wash your hair because you over slept and breakfast… uh, who has time for that? If you start your morning this way, chances are the rest of your day will be spent playing catch up.
A few years ago, I decided that I would try to wake up a little earlier than usual so that I could ease into my day. This of course required me to go to bed earlier which was not easy. However, after I finally got my sleeping schedule down, my mornings started becoming my favorite part of the day.
“It’s quiet. It’s early. My coffee is hot. The sky is still black. The world is still asleep. The day is coming. In a few moments the day will arrive. It will roar down the track with the rising of the sun. The stillness of dawn will be exchanged for the noise of the day. The calm of solitude will be replaced by the pounding pace of the human race. The refuge of the early morning will be invaded by decisions to be made and deadlines to be met.”
