The 5am Club: Let's wake up at 5am!


For the longest time now, I have been wanting to become an early bird. As a nigh owl, this is definitely a great challenge for me because I have trouble sleeping early as well as trouble sleeping...period! The other day I tried going to sleep at 11pm and ended up falling asleep past 12am. Needless to say, I wasn't able to get up when my alarm went off at 5am. Another thing, I am a lover of sleeping and naps.  Even though I have failed my attempts to wake up early in the past few days, I am still trying. I haven't given up (I think I get early-bird points for that, no? lol).

I thought that inviting my friends to do this with me would be a motivator. However, none of those lazy butts wanted to join me. One even said,

"I'll wake up at 5am when hell freezes over but I will support you in spirit." 

Yes, I appreciate the "spirit" support, but will not come close to sharing the waking-up-early struggle. Then a miracle happened, my sister agreed to attempt this challenge with me! So, as of now, the plan is to start tomorrow - Tuesday, July 28, 2015. 

The reason why I am interested in getting into the habit of waking up at 5am (or 6am), is because I always read that the most successful people wake up super early. As many of us, I aspire to be successful too. It makes sense that staring off your day early will give you extra hours to get more things done. Also, to do the things you keep saying you "want" to do but keep telling everyone you have "no time" for. I have a feeling that if you're anything like me, those those things may include: exercise, do homework, have peaceful ME-time, or have more time for your hobbies.

Lately, I have read some articles that talk about personal experiences of people deciding to wake up at 5am, that have had amazing results. They claim it changes their lives, that it gives them more energy, and that they are much happier now. To be honest, another reason why I want to do this is  because those claims seem a bit too extreme. Too good to be true! Thusly, I want to see for myself. I want to experience waking up early for a good chunk of time and see what results I get. By "chunk of time" I mean a month or more.

Now, having said all of that, I would like to extend the invitation to all you lovely people reading this post. As I told my friends: Lets wake up at 5am to become better people (as in, an improved version of the person we are today) and accomplish more goals. Join me, we can do it together!

I will give updates on how its going on my social medias (Twitter, Periscope, Snapchat & Instagram), where you can find me at @NalaAdor

I am hoping to be able to keep it up. So:

May the force be with me!!!
