This is a real battle
There’s a war going on inside, no man is safe from.
The internal struggle between waking up painfully early and hitting the snooze button 100 times
I’m a war torn veteran, enlisted on the latest campaign. The struggle is real people, the mattress is currently schooling me
If you’re reading this and figured out a long time ago how to win this battle, no joke, contact me and give me your tips (Note: if you’re a freak of nature that just gets up early because your body clock is weird like that then no, I don’t wanna hear from you, I find you annoying already)
I desperately want to join the early risers club but my ID keeps getting rejected it seems – or my body just flat out refuses to humour my intentions
Things I’ve been told work but for now haven’t worked for me
- Have a big enough why: they say if your motivation and intention behind waking up early is clear then you’ll just do it, but that hasn’t been the case for me
- Put your alarm in the bathroom
- Sleep upside down
- Sleep with your running gear on
- Take a cold shower immediately upon waking up
- Just do it (i hate this one the most)
Why do I want to wake up so damn early anyways?
- Get more done
- Develops discipline
- Destroys laziness
- Success comes through rituals
- Important but not urgent
If you’re a for real early riser and you’ve been consistent for at least a year then get in touch and mentor me on how you defeated the mighty mattress
Rising early to me feels like starting your day right – it’s the first win in a list of what will hopefully be multiple wins during the day
This is a battle i intend to win, no matter how long it takes. If you’ve already won this battle, then I’ll keep reiterating: Teach me!
Hope you’re enjoying your Saturday night
