One of the best ways to become more productive is to wake up earlier and give yourself a head start on the day. The time you wake and rise is a habit, and like all habits, it can be difficult to change. Try these steps for one week to learn how to rise before dawn: get up earlier – no matter what – get up; drink ice water; sleep seven hours; keep your bedroom dark and cool at night, and give it a week.
The first day you’ll be tired. The second day you’ll even more tired. By the third day, you’ll be asleep by 9:30 the night before. Any lack of sleep catches up with you, and soon falling sleep will be unavoidable, so your habits change. But if you tough it out for a few days, you’ll learn how powerful it can be to begin your day before the sun rises. You can do this.
