Day 29 – I’m getting up early, and I’m liking it!

Sleeping in, at least a couple of mornings during Spring Break sounds nice.  If I stay up a little bit later than usual, I can make up for it in the morning, right?  Wrong! 

When I was younger, there was a true feeling of pain if I had to get up before 6:30 or 7:00.  In a past job of mine that required some travel, there were times where I would have to be up by 5:00, or I would be sent out east for a few weeks of training, meaning Eastern Time, having to get up at 5:30 or 6:00 a.m. every day, OUCH!  And the occasional rising super early for a morning flight, brutal!  My head would hurt and there would be that weird feeling in my stomach, the kind where you can’t tell if you’re hungry, a stomach ache is coming on or the just got up way too early stomach feeling.  Yes, it eventually goes away, but it would certainly torture me for a while.

Now here I am.  I wake up at 5:00, or sometimes 4:30, and I can barely make myself stay in bed.  I tell myself to just lie there a little longer, enjoy it; I’ll fall back asleep.  Nope! Wrong, I lay there and I’m awake.  There is no falling back asleep.  I think I  sound like I’m complaining, and I probably am a little bit.  But honestly, I kind of like it.  I have definitely  become a morning person.  I like being the first one up.  I like seeing the sky go from dark to some early morning pinks and oranges.  I like the quiet time to myself.  This Spring Break, I’m getting up early, and I’m liking it!

  1. I can’t sleep in anymore even if I want too! Day one of spring break and I was up with the sun at 6am! Ah well, I got to enjoy coffee on the hotel balcony and a nice long shower before anyone was awake. There is something to be said about getting up early. So much potential for the day!

  2. I am trying to wake up a little later than my normal workday wake up, but earlier than my past spring break wake up times so i can get some house stuff done before my kids wake up and we get going for the day. Today was day 1 and it went ok.

    Enjoy your break! Enjoy your mornings! I’m sure they are more enjoyable when you don’t have to run out and get to work!
