I get up at 6am every single day, I don’t hit snooze and I don’t go back to bed. Earlier this week I learned just how valuable that is.
I was up later than usual a few nights in a row working on a project, which meant sleep was a little skimpy.
I’ll be honest as soon I got out of bed on Monday I felt so tired you’d have thought my eyelids had weights strapped to them.
I brushed my teeth, splashed cold water in my face and headed back to my room.
That warm bed with clean flannel sheets looked so amazing I told myself “you can get under the covers for just a second then you need to get up go for your morning walk.”
Unfortunately I fell back asleep.
Now while this may not be the exact same as hitting the snooze it has the same effect on my day… it created chaos.
As soon as I woke up I could see how light it was outside, and thought “Shit I fell back asleep!”
I looked at my phone which read 8:23AM, not the 6:05AM I remember right before I fell asleep again.
The whole rest of my day was completely out of whack.
My morning routine was rushed and not remotely calming. My walk was really short and it didn’t provide any time to really think. I skipped my shower.
When I got into my office I barely had any time to journal and had to cut my morning reading all together to prepare for a call with a nutrition client.
I started off the day more than two hours behind, and couldn’t ever seem to catch up and get back on schedule.
No matter how hard I tried I just couldn’t catch up, it felt like I was fighting against quicksand all day long.
At the end of the day I was way more exhausted that I normally am, but having accomplished way less than a typical day.
I thought damn that isn’t happening again, I can’t stand the feeling of playing catch up and being behind on my day.
