We cannot change the number of hours in a day but we can make our day longer by waking up earlier. We were created to work during the day, and sleep at night. Having an awake/sleep schedule is of major importance. Our bodies require 6-8 hours of sleep to be at optimum energy levels. Waking up early becomes easy if we start by start by going to bed earlier the night before. As you make progress, go to bed 15 minutes the night before and also, set your alarm 15 minutes earlier. Soon you will wake up much earlier than before.
Why is waking up early so important?
1. It gives us personal time to meditate and plan 2. It gives you time to work out
3. It allows our entire brain and body to properly awaken 4. It gives you time to get ready without having to rush.
5. It allows you to make and enjoy breakfast, the most important meal of the day.
6. You'll get more work done.
We can attempt to learn all kinds of sophisticated techniques for time management but until we are ready to wake up early enough, we will continue to run out of time at the end of the day.
"Give ear to my words, O LORD; consider my groaning.
Give attention to the sound of my cry, my King and my God,
for to you do I pray. O LORD, in the morning you hear my voice;
in the morning I prepare ..." Psalm 5:1-3
