A full disclosure,
In my opinion, there’s no big deal about waking up late; it depends on when you feel comfortable starting your day., even if it is in the middle of the afternoon. But if you aren’t happy about it and really feel like bringing a change in it, then you have clicked into a valued article.
What is a morning person?
Putting it into very simple words, a morning person is a person who wakes up happily in the morning, and obviously goes to sleep early!
Simply if you “willingly” wake up at or near the break of dawn, you are a morning person!
That little word “willingly” is the difference-maker here. If you wake up early in the morning and you don’t want to! That will never serve you anything except monotonous disappointment.
Summing up, merely waking up at 5 or 6 or 8 in the morning because “you have to” for your job, school, training, gym, doesn’t make you a morning person. But your will to wake up and make the day count for something does make you a morning person. And a satisfactory one, I would say!
It takes a lot to wake up early, and it doesn’t start with the very first day, now if you have been brought up as an early riser, you were a lucky duck, if not you can always form new habits that serve you better. And with some everyday efforts, you can overcome it easily.
Commonly the first few days will leave you with many concerns like:
- Waking up feeling lazy and worthless.
- Waking up feeling like all you want to do is get back in your bed.
- Hard to step out of your bed and your cozy blanket.
- Body ache (a little).
- You are feeling like quitting.
And much more!
Early days of cultivating this habit will leave you lazy if you don’t have the habit of waking up early at all. Also to mention precisely, you will definitely start realizing your love for sleep 😉
According to me and as simple as I can put this, these are all excuses because of laziness!
Further, thanks to your laziness you will start to think that sleeping is the only best thing you could do for yourself.
So Looking into it lets question ourselves!
Why it feels lazy to be a morning person?
You either feel lazy because you don’t have the will to wake up and get going
You didn’t have enough amount of sleep/rest the previous night.
Maybe there are a ton of reasons for being lazy, but according to me apart from the a & b mentioned above, rest are mere excuses.
Excuses don’t serve anyone anything; the sooner you realize it, everything becomes simpler than you thought.
