It is really amazing the things that I experience when getting up early, and I want to share my experiences with you:
- Waking to the birds singing. Instead of the alarm clock.. I am really surprised that my body is already adjusting, and waking up even before the alarm. I hear the birds on our roof singing and I have no troubles with getting up since I know this is going to be a perfect start of the day.
- Getting ahead every day. When starting at 5, I have the time to exercise, to reflect and listen to something I want to learn. I have the time to eat breakfast in piece and quite, and when my youngest kid get up (he always gets up first), we have the time to talk about what we will do today, discuss the big or small things in life. Love these moments.
- Feeling stronger mentally. The fact that I now have the time to prepare and plan properly for the day to come gives me a mental strength. I love the feeling of being in control and have already experienced some positive results by being prepared and focused.
- Feeling stronger physically. By doing yoga every morning I can feel a shift in my body, with more muscles, more flexibility, more strength. It is a fantastic feeling when you notice that you have improved, when you reach a bit further in your positions and when you can sit in stillness and meditate without having too much of a struggle with your thoughts to achieve this.
If you have not already, go on and try it. I will share with you soon a review of some books related to this topic, so stay tuned. Namaste.
