Since arriving back from Eastern Europe, I used the jet lag to my advantage and became an early riser. I’ve been waking up around 5am each morning. It’s great! I have even started bragging about it in that holier than thou attitude early risers LOVE to affect… “You got up at 10? Well, I got up at 5 this morning.”
There are issues though.
- By 9am I am hungry for lunch.
- By 3pm I am exhausted and want the workday OVER.
- By 9pm all I want to do is go to sleep.
Can it be that I am not any more productive than I was when I woke up at 7? The only difference is my schedule has shifted.
Still, I do enjoy being up before most people. I like the quiet of the morning. I like knowing I have time to putz and do my own thing. Hopefully I can keep it up.
