The switch back to standard time is a good time to start a new tradition: the me hour. Get up on weekdays at 6 am and do something that is healthy: workout, write, think, or meditate.
I’ve always enjoyed the mornings, before anyone else is awake. I find the world peaceful at this time of day and enjoy watching the day come alive, with the sun rising and the birds beginning to sing.
With work and household obligations keeping me up late and the same obligations often getting me up early, investing the needed time in myself gets more and more difficult with every passing day. And the only way to ensure that I actually get it done is to get up earlier than everyone else.
A few ground rules ensure that I’m spending time on my priorities and not other people’s priorities for me::
- No email
- No Internet
- No Twitter
- No work
How do you ensure you get your me time?
