So.. for the next 90 day challenge I am thinking of 'Waking up at 5am for 90 days'. I tried this week and got 5am four days in a row; then 9:30am.
I find that IF I get up at 5am (provided I have had adequate quantity and quality of sleep) I often have the most productive days. It also allows me to get a morning Sitting meditation session in before my anybody is up.
As I wrote about in a previous post; having a challenge (or two) on the go makes life more interesting, and if they are habit changing or habit breaking challenges, all the better. I have a lot I want to get done in the next 5 years, and I feel strongly that I will need to rise early and manage time more effectively to facilitate these 'hidden' plans.
The moon is extra bright tonight, and almost full. Perhaps I will start the 5am challenge on a Full Moon's eve..
