Morning Mastery: Chapter 4-Sleep First to Wake up

You don’t even realize it but your body works on a mental schedule that has steadily developed over time. If sleeping in is what your body is used to, then that habit has become a part of your routine.
All of your hours awake and asleep work based on what you are accustomed to.
- Changing this though is not as easy as reading an article.
- It takes a lot of devotion and constant reminders.
- An intuitive habit isn’t something you rub off, it takes a long time to change as it does to develop, which could be months.
It could even be years.
- Nonetheless, sleep is what comes before waking up and therefore is the impacting action that will either help you or hold you from waking up on time.
- That’s why it’s what shall be thoroughly addressed in this chapter.
- Don’t confuse this with getting enough sleep or not, but this instead addresses how you sleep, the pattern your sleep has gotten accustomed to.

- But yes, there are 24 hours in a day no matter what your brain tells you and that’s more than enough to tire you out to the bare bones.
- You could be a bodybuilder fixing the physique of others, a cashier smiling at all the passing faces, someone whose face is hidden behind a cubicle from 9 to 5, or a mother finally putting two menacing toddlers and one bawling baby into sleep.

- But not everyone can get the sleep they need.
- Why? Because of your sleeping pattern.
