More and more people complain that they have little time to devote to activities that make them feel good or simply to be alone with themselves to reflect or to meditate. The trick to finding the missing time is wake up one hour earlier in the morning.
If we have the chance, we should try at least once in a lifetime wake up an hour earlier to take some time for ourselves and to see how the rhythm and energy of our day change in this way.
We must not forget that, as our grandparents used to say, The early bird catches the worm. Now the importance of waking up early in the morning - set the alarm an hour earlier than usual would be ideal - is back in the limelight thanks to a book that quickly became famous all over the world.
It is The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod. The author of the book transformed his life after a serious accident and became a successful character after having internalized the good habit of waking up an hour earlier in the morning.
Waking up an hour earlier, the benefits
Waking up early is important because, first and foremost, it allows us to have breakfast calmly and don't be constantly late but also because it helps us to find time to organize our day, to identify solutions to the problems of everyday life or simply to devote a few moments to meditation and relaxation.
Some people thanks to the suggestions of The Miracle Morning method manage to wake up every day at 5.30 in the morning. Of course, this requires you to go to sleep a little earlier in the evening, but it is probably much better to anticipate the moment of rest rather than spending the evening hours in front of the TV or wandering on the web just out of habit and without a specific purpose.
How to organize our hour just for us
Here how should we organize our 'now just for us' when we decide to wake up early. According to Hal Elrod we should organize our available time like this:
- 5 minutes of silence
- 5 minutes of positive affirmations
- 5 minutes of creative visualization
- 20 minutes of exercise
- 20 minutes of reading and research
- 5 minutes of writing
If we wanted to simplify this scheme we could organize our golden hour of the morning like this:
- 20 minutes of meditation
- 20 minutes of reading
- 20 minutes of physical activity
La meditation it serves to focus the mind on our next goals and on our day. There reading allows us to deepen the topics of our interest while thephysical activity it helps to get the body moving again before starting the day and makes us more energetic.
La writing it is useful for setting one's goals for the day on paper or for better organizing thoughts and insights gained during meditation or reading. The positive affirmations are phrases that help us to have a better vision of life and of ourselves while the creative visualizations they allow us to better imagine our future so that we can realize it with our actions.
Beyond the suggestions of The Miracle Morning, it has been known for centuries that the first hours of the day are the best for practicing Yoga and meditation because at dawn the mind is very receptive and is able to stay focused longer.
Not to mention waking up earlier in the morning throughout the day you will feel like you have much more time available and you will always feel a little ahead of your schedule, which helps increase your productivity and the will to do.
Are you ready to wake up a little earlier to feel more energetic and to finally dedicate time only to yourself?
