I wanted to write a post on sleep, but instead I went to bed.
I’m completely okay with that irony, because the whole point of my last two Wellness Wednesday posts have been on respecting your sleeping hours. I wrote about how to induce sleep naturally so you can enjoy more of it, and last week I shared my goal of becoming an early riser and how to do that, I need to stick to a schedule.
My intention was for today’s post to be about what happens to your body when you sleep. But instead I did a little field work and went undercover to try it for myself! I feel much better rested than I would’ve if I’d stayed up to write a blog post.
This whole early rising thing has me giving up more than blog posts. I also give up
- Another episode of Wonderland
- Facebook surfing
- Staying out late
- Extra time to get chores done
- One more chapter of my book
In the long run, though, or even just by morning, I realise it’s a small price to pay for the expanse of a sunrise sky and quiet hours to get things done.
What do you have to give up to be an early riser? Tell me here or on our Facebook page, where I check in each morning for accountability!
