New Early Morning Habits

I've always been a night owl, but have been wanting to change that for the longest time. The idea of waking up in the morning and being able to get the stuff done that most people don't do before noon is so appealing. But I love sleep so much and hate getting out of bed in the morning. Especially if it's cold out. So of late, I've been reading the Zen Habits blog, and Leo Babauta wrote a post on the benefits of waking up early and how to start. Now he apparently wakes up at 4:30am which is WAY to early for me. I usually wake up around 8am without an alarm clock, but this week I decided I want to wake up at 7am and see how productive I can be in the mornings. Yesterday, I went to the gym and today, I've finally made a long overdue post on this blog. So far so good, and I hope to keep it up. How are your mornings?

I'm in your night owl camp, sistah. The only reason I awake by alarm is because of my husband — but if it weren't for that, I'd be doing the 8-a.m.-self-rise like you. That being said, my morning routine does tend to be more productive when I'm up before that... but I'm sorry... 4:30 is inhumane!

I have realized lately that I am a morning person when I always thought I was a night person. It's a weird realization to come to.
