Blog Post # 127 – Up Awake

Wake up.

Up awake, up awake, up awake.

I forget how important it is to wake up early.

How much more I accomplish by waking up earlier.

Today, I woke up at 5. Went to Grant’s Trail and ran, went to the grocery store, picked up donuts for the kids, put groceries away, prepared dinner and cleaned the kitchen all before 8:15 am.

I love getting that much done.

For me, the single biggest stress reliever is getting up earlier.

And I forget this from time to time.

Last Friday, I had one of those days where I was late for my first appointment and I was running late all day.

Hated it.

I find that I am much calmer, serene, purposeful and in tune when I wake up earlier.

So if you find yourself stressed out, you might try waking up at 5 or 5:30. See how much you get done and let me know how it feels.
