I have been called an early bird for as long as I can remember. I do love the mornings and have since I was a little boy. My Father was in the construction industry and had to wake my sister and me up at 5:00 am every morning…to trek us to our Aunt’s or Nana’s house before heading to work.
Then approximately 12 years later, I was in the Demolition industry where I too hit the road early in the morning. I have never had a problem getting up in the morning and I would say I am blessed because of this.
Non morning people do not realize what they are missing when you get up and get outside early in the morning. At least 2-3 days per week I pop up to the Gibbs Hill Lighthouse, which we live under, and watch the sun rise. Living on an island…we have some amazing Sunrises and Sunsets.
There is a certain calm feeling surrounding the early morning.
As far as being productive, I feel I can get more done before 10 am…then any other part of the day.
Today’s word of advice…get up early at least once a week…and watch the sun come up…or go for an early morning walk. Sit outside and have a cup of tea or coffee. Read the paper (or your iPad….or Kindle). You can get a lot done in the morning.
