What to Cook for Dinner?
What motivates you?
At times we all struggle with doing new things, doing the things you know you need to do to make a change. Each morning is a struggle for me, a battle between will I get up and grab my quiet of the day or will I hit the snooze and go back to sleep. Most days are not easy days. I must push myself out of bed to take that first step. Then once I am moving I can keep on going.
My motivation to get out of bed is remember the peace and quiet of that first morning. How nice it was just to sit and think, to hear the warm air rushing through the vents. Something I don’t get to do most of the day, just sit and be quiet. I also have found I have a better attitude throughout the day when I am up early and have some time for myself. The day just seems to go smoother or maybe it is my outlook is just better. Either way it is a motivator for me.
If you struggle with getting up early you need to find something to motivate you. Maybe it is having an accountability partner you can reach out to with a text or an email each morning to let them know you are up. Or making a deal with your spouse to give up something if you stay in bed too long. Finding something to motivate you can make all the difference in winning the battle to get up.
Getting up in the morning is hard some days but if you have something that can motivate you to climb out of the bed it will really help.
