Morning Glory

Felt particularly chipper for a Monday morning.  I couldn’t understand why at first but after a brief reflection while I was waiting for the in-house office printer to warm up I believe because a) I got [close to] a full night’s sleep; b) I began + completed a small personal task before leaving the apartment; and c) I still made it to work on time.

All I did was switch out the protective plastic liner in my shower & consequently take out my bathroom garbage.  I have recently figured out how to dial in my alarm as to maximize morning rest, so I have not been awake early enough to get much done aside from wash up.

Apparently checking off even one single, small line item from the to-do list has great effect on morale.  This is an especially worthy success, considering how not a morning person I am.

A recent TIME article suggests that I really ought to reconsider this lifestyle trait.  Basically the idea is that first thing when you wake up, you spend some good time on personal development.  You will be most effective for yourself this way, because you’re not exhausted (neither mentally nor physically) from dealing with all the inevitable time management/bullshit/stress of the day that lies ahead.

Even if that “personal development” is just tidying your bathroom space, and not reading a chapter or getting a gym session in, you find your day to feel a lot more victorious having conquered a little bit of life before you’re even out the door.
