1. Find a compelling reason to wake up early.
- Why do you want to wake up early?
- To get a head start in your day? To be healthier?
- To get more work done?
Find your purpose. 'The first step to win yourself is, wake up early'.
2. Take baby steps to make a transition.
- Waking up immediately at 5 am is tough.
- Start off by improving your wake up time by 15 min or 30 min each day. ' All change is hard at first, messy in the middle and gorgeous in the end'.
3. Figure out stopping cause.
- Understand what is causing you to wake up late and tackle them.
- Playing games or more screen time before sleep increases the time you take to fall asleep.
- Cut out the stimulants that affects your sleep schedule, like caffeine or alcohol.
4. Sleeping less or sleeping late doesn't make you more productive.
- Good sleep is needed to stay active.
- If you sleep late, you end up waking up late. The entire plan for the day gets disturbed.
'Lose an hour in the morning, and you will be hunting all day for it'.
5. Plan a non-negotiable agenda for the next day.
- Create urgency.
- Set up extremely important and urgent tasks as the first items of the day. 'Every morning you have two choices - continue to sleep with your dreams or wake up and chase your dreams. The choice is yours'.
- Meditate for two minutes before you sleep.
- It helps you to clear mental clutter and makes it easier to sleep. 'Morning is an important time of day, because how you spend your morning tells you what kind of day you are going to have'.
7. Practice mindfulness.
- To feel more energized after waking up early, engage in some inner work.
- Do some mindfulness exercises. 'Life is waking up an hour early to live an hour more'.
8. Make it a habit.
- Commit yourself to wake up early for the 30 days.
- Stay determined to follow that.
- It becomes a habit. ' Make waking up early a habit, you will enjoy 100% perfect days every day'.
