I've been telling myself this for years... but I think I've come to a point where I'm enjoying it more - WAKING. UP. EARLY. As silly and simple as it is, it's always been quite hard for me to get up early, I'm a night owl. Ya know, the one who stays up late brainstorming new ideas, and getting inspired, then fails to pay attention to the time, and before they know it's already midnight? Yeah, that's me. Lately I've been pushing myself to wake up earlier and earlier every day. By doing this, I'm able to see gentle sunrises, to hear the birds conversing at the crack of dawn, to listen to the stillness of the earth before any sort of chaos has a chance to show it's dominance. Mornings are a beautiful thing, right?
Something that helps me wake up (besides a good cuppa' jo) is a playlist I've created and have been listening to constantly. It's called "Music for the Morning Hours" and I LOVE it. It's a perfect mix of calm and smooth alternative jams, combined with a more bouncy and bubbly "let's wake up!" vibe. I like to imagine this as music you'd make breakfast to, or get ready for the day to, all whilst dancing a bit of course. I believe that the way your morning goes can strongly determine the trajectory of the rest of your day, so it's important to slow down and make your morning a good one. This playlist is a perfect way to wake you up and bring into a good mood to start your day!
