12 Life Hacks that change everything

12 Lessons of Waking Up at 4:30 a.m. for 21 Days  September 19, 2015 – 07:55 am
Original Facebook post about #21earlydays.

But what was the final goal in all this? It’s all about productivity and making the most of my days. I’m always thinking of ways to improve my work and my life and I like to think about details and take action if I think I could improve. I’ve known for a long time that I am a morning person, and so the goal was to increase my morning time to see if it would increase my productivity.

So, what have I learned from this? A LOT:

1. If you want to change something in your life, it’s always better if you have support along the way. It will be this support that keeps you on track when you’re about to give up. In my case, I opted to share my journey on Facebook with my friends and acquaintances. I knew that I would need this because if no one knew I was doing this, no one would hold me accountable for failing. But when you share your journey, people will ask you how it’s going, whether they agree or not. And in my head, I could not give up and show weakness. I doubt I would disappoint anyone because this isn’t such an important thing, but if I could inspire at least one person in the end, I couldn’t give up for that person.

2. People like to see different things. And someone waking up so early is definitely not a normal thing, so I had huge engagement in my posts! People concerned about me. People asking a lot of questions. And people stating that this would be impossible for them. I had great and deep conversations because of my posts and I couldn’t be more thankful to everyone that interacted with me. You made me think about many things, and part of this post is also a result of these conversations.

3. People don’t wake up earlier because they think they have to sleep less. In the first days, some people were really concerned about me. Most of questions were about only one thing: the time I sleep. Of course I had this well planned. I know very well what my body demands and as I changed the time when I wake up, I changed the time I go to bed too. Simple. Usually I sleep between 6 and 7 hours during the week and I maintained exactly that during the #21earlydays. So when it’s 9:30 or 10 p.m., it’s time to go to bed. To my surprise, the majority of the people that asked me the time I sleep, sleep less than me. And me? In fact, I’m sleeping even more now than before!

    • The relationship I had with one guy.
      The beginning of the relationship helped me understand that I had never considered myself sexy or pretty. But he made me feel beautiful. I realized for the first time that beauty is all about how you feel inside and what you radiate. :)
      The ending of the relationship helped me understand that you cannot get depressed if you know yourself and if you did not yield to self-pity. Ayn Rand's Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged helped me get through the break up.
      I felt like a new person ever since. I quit my job because I was not satisfied. I found the gut…
