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 …
