Early in the morning

Over the last couple of months I’ve started getting up early. I’m amazed at the difference it makes in my day. If I get up at 5:00AM, by the time the rest of the world is working at 8:00AM, I already have a few hours under my belt.

I really notice the difference when I don’t get up early. Yesterday morning I didn’t get up until 7:15. The entire day felt like I was under the gun. I was constantly running and my stress level was just higher.

Getting up early seems to lead to less stressful days for me and allows more creativity. Granted, I have to be in bed by 10:00PM at the latest, but that’s a fair tradeoff for more productivity and less stress. It’s been one of the best changes I’ve ever made.

    Totally stumbled on you here. I’m a photographer as well…working on the faith part too 😉 I get up at 5:00 because no one in my family wants a piece of me at that hour! I try not to work in Photoshop on client stuff…it’s about personal growth and journaling. Having that extra time has changed my life. I will be back–really like your writing style.
