I am not a morning person. I hit my snooze alarm multiple times before I can bear to get up. That means I have to set my clock to ring early as a buffer so I have time to hit the snooze button. I am not above trying to fool myself into getting up on time.
I say “thank you” as soon as my feet hit the floor. I think that starting the day with words of gratitude is a good habit. Still, I go about my morning routine in a blasé manner. Routine is routine after all.
Maybe, I like the little thrill that comes from beating the clock, the adrenaline rush of meeting the press for time. Maybe.
I do know that the best reward for getting up early is a view of a beautiful sunrise!
