I have a secret to tell you: I’m a morning person. Despite finding myself up way later than I should be most nights, I don’t actually enjoy it. In an ideal world, I’d be going to bed no later than 10:30PM and waking up at 6:00AM. Strange, right? I actually want to wake up early.
I’ll let you in on another secret: I didn’t always use to be this way. In fact, it was only when I started university last year that my attitude towards the morning really changed. I’ve always had to wake up early to get to school, but I used to dread being up before the sun was properly set in the sky. When I think back to what sparked this change, I can only link it to one thing – I wanted some alone time.
Living in dorms meant sharing my space with roughly 25 other girls, and seeing one girl every time I was in my room. Waking up early gave me at least an hour of quiet before the craziness of the day kicked in. Despite no longer sharing a dorm room, I do still have roommates and getting to have a little bit of time in the morning that’s just mine has become a feeling I love.
My hope is that I’ll be able to share with you some tips and tricks to help make mornings the best thing about your day.
