Second day rise before the sun

It went pretty well to get up from the bed today. But tomorrow I will set the clock at 4.45 because today I was not started with my training (20/20/20) until 20 over so I plan to change that until tomorrow. The feeling of fatigue during the day has not been as great as I thought today either. But the first 22 days should obviously be really hard so we will see how it feels tomorrow 🙂

Because I like to do yoga in the morning, this is what I did for just over 20 minutes. Yesterday vinyasa yoga and today more medical yoga with more stretching. Both variants are nice but the morning training is supposed to be more “sweaty” so tomorrow I will do power yoga I think. It is very interesting that my thoughts are so clear and focused early in the morning. Also this morning I got some new good ideas and felt I had the time to structure my day before the meeting day started. Really a nice feeling of control that lasted the rest of the day. I also like that you write down and reflect for the next 20 minutes. I bought a nice book in pink before I started this journey, and this will now be my daily journal. In this I write down what I feel, think, and want to achieve during the day. Also, thoughts about yesterday, what was good and what could be improved. The last 20 minutes are dedicated to personal development. Choose a podcast, a good book, a video course in a topic that interests you and in which you want to develop. For me, both yesterday and today I have been watching 5AM club videos, to teach me more and a bit like pepping to continue.

In the evening I have to admit that I was really tired both yesterday and today, so at 19.30-20 there were some big yawns from me while we watched some film the whole family. Now I have prepared with my training clothes and I am ready to turn off the light. Sleep well. I’ll write more again tomorrow!


Do you get more effective by getting up (really) early in the morning?

Is it really worth it, to get up at 5AM in the morning? Today was the first day when I put the alarm at 5, to see if 5 AM Club is something for me. I have to admit that I was very sceptical yesterday when I went to bed if I was to wake up at this early. But it was no problem. I even woke up BEFORE the alarm, strangely enough. And it was no problem at all to get up. Or to do yoga for just over 20 minutes before I continued to write down in a book my thoughts and reflections for the day. I ended my first hour (“the success hour”) by listening to Robin Sharma talk about his 5 AM Club training to learn more.

I have to say that I felt very alert and had some good thoughts during the first hour and also the next. Full of energy, I ate breakfast and then the rest of the family woke up. I felt refreshed, happy and energetic and after a while with them I was able to start my working day at the computer. Still way before my first meeting, so I had the time to plan my day, answer some emails and do some first, more demanding, tasks. It was only at lunch that I started to feel a bit tired. Managed to get my energy back with some lunch and then went for a walk in the sun.

The next “low” did not come until late in the afternoon and now that it is almost 7PM I look forward to go to bed at 21-21.30 which is my plan, after spending a little more time with the family. So the first day with 5AM club – approved I must say! It will be exciting to see if it is as easy to get out of bed tomorrow …
