I wake up in the morning everyday at 5 a.m. Sometimes I do this because I need to finish something for work, but even if it’s not necessary to wake up early, I still get up at 5 a.m. I wasn’t always like this. I used to be a sleepyhead who slept until noon during weekends and the summer. After I graduated, I decided to train myself to wake up early because I didn’t want to waste the day. I also knew that this habit will come in handy someday. Now I don’t need an alarm clock to wake up, but I still set my phone on alarm just in case. Sometimes I sleep until late, or I wake up earlier like at 3 a.m. I can do this even if I slept at 12 midnight or was even drunk the night before.
I started to love mornings. There’s something so peaceful about it. I discovered that I was more productive in the mornings. I used to think that I was more of a night person, but now that has changed. Below are the things I do when I wake up.
One of the things I do as an editorial assistant is to post video articles to Hootsuite before 8 a.m. I also catch up on some work when I need to.
