I’m still trying to become a morning person. Part of me thinks that I should give it up, but I dream of being one of those people who just wakes up at 7:00 am. Rested, perky, ready to take on the day.
My last attempt to become a morning person — when everyday I set my alarm for 7:00 am — worked for a while (okay, a few days…maybe a week) and then completely fizzled.
A real let down.
Fortunately, I have new tactic. And if everything goes according to schedule — which it won’t, but it’s worth the effort of commitment — by the first week of June I should arise at 7:00 am with real enthusiasm.
I’m going to employ an incremental training regiment like I did when I decided I wanted to be able to run for 30 minutes uninterrupted. At the time I recognized that I was never going to be someone who transformed from non-runner to marathoner seamlessly. (In the end though, I did succeed in running for half of an hour.)
Apparently, becoming a morning person is going to be similar situation. So I created a Sleep Step Down Schedule which begins with allowing myself an allotment of (what should be) ample sleep time. It seems confrontational to my goal, to start free of restrictions. But recently, other efforts which seemed counterintuitive, proved fruitful.
So…we will see. I’ll let you know how it shakes out.
