I would love to be a "morning person". Someone who wakes up before everyone else in the house and takes the time to do yoga and/or meditate. To have a cup of coffee and enjoy the stillness. It's rarely quiet in our home and I think my mind and body would enjoy the experience on a regular basis.
There is always and excuse, though. Right now the excuse is that the baby wakes up so freakin' many times at night that I just need to squeeze out every last bit of sleep in the night that I possibly can. Right now I'm going to bed by 10:00 on most nights and usually not getting up until Matt leaves for work at 8:00. You'd think that's alot of sleep, but waking 5-6 times and many times not getting back to sleep for a while makes for a sleepy mama. I have been told that getting more exercise and spending more time being meditative would increase the quality of my sleep and reduce my times of insomnia, so that's something to think about.
How does one become a morning person? Who do you make that shift, mentally and physically? Any advice?
