You’ve read the articles and heard about all the benefits of rising early. On the rare occasion that found you out of bed early, you enjoyed a more relaxing and productive morning. You don’t need to be convinced that being an early riser is a good thing.
You just need to actually do it. You need to start getting up early on a regular basis and building the early riser habit into your lifestyle.
Lifehack is here to help you do just that! A Lifehack challenge make sense for a few reasons:
- You can do anything for 5 days.
- It’s much easier to do something hard when you have friends along.
- A bit of accountability goes a long way in the forming of new habits.
So what’s the challenge?
Be an early riser for 5 days in a row.
When does the challenge take place?
We’ll be starting on the morning of March 22 and ending after you get out of bed on March 26th.
Sound interesting? Here’s what you need to do:
Leave a comment confirming your participation in the early riser challenge and include your target wake time for each morning.
For example: “Yeah, count me in! I’ll be waking up 3hrs earlier than usual each day so 9am it is for me!”
If you’re going to be blogging about your challenge experience, make sure to include a link to your blog when you leave a comment. Why? Because I’ll be choosing a few blogs to feature in an update/check-in post each day. Once you have your day well underway, you can stop by the daily update post and share your thoughts on what went well and what you’re struggling with. I’ll be sharing tips, featured blogs, and questions in a daily post you can look for each morning.
If we do this as a community, and I say “we” because I’ll be doing it myself as well (I’ve been slacking off on my early mornings lately), we’ll get better results and have more fun. At the end of the week, if you decide early rising isn’t for you, no harm done and you’ll have made some new friends from all across the world!
Sounds good, right?
