Every morning one beam of light enters peeping through the curtains of your room directly into your eyes, asking you to greet it nicely. However, you being rigid and rebellious, will pull your duvet to cover your face and clinch it harder so as to avoid your encounter with light.
This happens normally with most of us who never like welcoming those cool yet warm sunlight rays on our face and body. In fact, I wouldn’t be ashamed to say that there are barely any people who invest their life in rising early. Bed and blanket is the opium drug that doesn't let us come out of our comfort. It hugs us tighter every morning when the alarm buzz, agitated we wake up and let the negativity spread within us. Despite that commonly found behaviour, I would not also apprise you with the fact that if you are not waking up in the morning around 5 am, you are definitely choosing to repudiate that part of your life that can bring immense joy in your heart.
Did you know that you give uninterrupted time to yourself when you wake up in time; moreover, it is the most productive hour which never lets you do things in a rush. Benefits are countless but let’s hear my story which might coax you as well to transform your personality.
Only a few years ago, I encountered my first meeting with the rising sun. And even now I can recollect the ecstatic and bewitching site of that fascinating and striking daybreak. The experience was beyond words. Someone had told me that if you ever experience a sunrise you would like to relive it time and again in your life, that's the joy of it. At that time, may be I was too young to comprehend that. So, I did not follow the routine immediately.
Slowly and gradually when I had to push myself out of the bed to get my kids ready for school or cook food at home. I used to do all my tasks half-heartedly and in all that exhaustion. The other day I realised that with all these chores, I have just forgotten to give time to myself. I have started worrying more and my life has come to a standstill. The same day I could sleep well so I woke up at 4:30, did my yoga for a while and went outside to experience the morning rays. Trust me, I had an epiphany as if god had come to tell me that in order to experience that joy all over again, I must start leaving my bed by 4:30 or 5.
And now I have time for myself, my exercise, my household chores, my kids and by the end of the day- I do not have any pessimistic feeling in my heart. Somehow, after developing this habit, I have introduced more optimism in my life and career. I talk to the universe in those early hours due to which I let my law of attraction work well for me.
