WEEK SIX CHALLENGE
Get up early and exercise!
One of my favorite quotes of all time is this:
“I don’t have insomnia, I have a Netflix addiction and inadequate respect for tomorrow.” Does that hit a little too close to home for anyone else?? Ha!
Let me just start by saying that I know sleep deprivation like an intimate friend. It can be so frustrating to never feel like you’re getting sufficient sleep.
You would feel the same every morning – exhausted, and not in the best of moods. We’ve all been there at some point or another, and some experience it considerably more than others. And we all want to get out of it fast, whether it be through sleeping tablets or alternative cures such as St John’s Wart and Nutra CBD olie kopen (a kind of hemp oil).
Take my friend for example. She has been battling insomnia for quite a while now. Two young children and a very stressful job have begun to take a toll on her, and she’s been rigorously looking for ways to combat these symptoms. It wasn’t until she came across cannabis, and these Dr Dabber coupons that she finally felt like she was turning her insomnia upside down. Of course, she’d take them in doses so she was still able to be there for her children. I’m glad. It was really starting to affect her life.
But isn’t it strange how so many of us aren’t get sufficient sleep?
Some stages of life just equate exhaustion (like new mommyhood or grad school) but staying up late to finish one more episode of the Bachelor is really just self-defeating. We worked on this during week 3, so here’s our chance to do something with those extra hours of energy!
It hasn’t been since before Marilyn was born that I was able to get up before 7am consistently…but by doing that I was able to get out of the house and exercise and then come home in time to read scriptures or have quiet work time. Just having those two things done before the kids woke up was an amazing feeling. Consequently, I also got a shower before noon and felt invigorated all day.
Give early morning exercise a try! I promise you’ll feel great. (Uh, as long as you’re getting to bed on time. I highly discourage trying to get up at sunrise when you passed out on the couch at 2am.) My goal is 6am, and hoping to work up to 5:30!
Let me know how it goes!
