If you use Instagram, Facebook, Quora, or any other social media site, you must have seen multiple posts about how important it is to wake up early. But is it really necessary?
Welcome to the third episode of Opening Up with Dipanshu Rawal.
And today I’m going to talk about if it’s really necessary to wake up early in the morning daily.
Since my early teenage years, I have been a night owl. But then again, I like to experiment. So I started waking up early. At 4’o clock. I did it for straight 100 days.
And then I realized what all that buzz was about.
For starters, it wasn’t really about waking up at 4 or 5 AM. It’s about waking up earlier than you usually do.
So let’s consider if your usual waking up time is 8 AM, when you start waking up an hour early, at 7 AM, you’ll have enough free time to develop a morning routine.
If you live in your home with your parents, or with roommates, or with your partner, once the day begins, your time is not your time. Your parents may need you to do something.
Your friends may wanna hang out with you, or there are N no. of things that could take your time.
But if you begin your day an hour early, it’d be your time. You could utilize all of that 1hr by yourself.
You can write a journal, work out, cook your meals, meditate. You can invest this extra hour for your personal growth.
And you know how significant it is to invest your time in your self-growth.
So, to summarize… waking up early in the morning is not the answer to success. But, if you want to make a change in your life, start waking up an hour or so early in your routine, and you’ll never have a chance to complain – ‘Oh, I don’t have time’.
So… Good luck!
By the way, I am curious, what’s your usual waking up time? let me know in the comments below.
Thank you for listening.
And I’ll be here shortly with the next episode of Opening Up with Dipanshu Rawal.
