Most mornings lately, I am awake early enough to see the sun rise. This has been made much easier by the fact that the days are getting shorter and the lazy sun is rising later and later in the day.
There is something so comforting in these quiet, still moments. I love the clarity, the hope and the optimism that comes with the start of a new day.
I’ve read somewhere that the number of decisions you make throughout the day break down your ability to make the right decision, so by the end of the day you’re tired and cranky and going with your gut. I like doing my most important tasks first thing in the morning, because I do feel a sense of certainty in my decision-making that is especially lacking in the afternoon nap time of the day.
Are you an early bird, or a night owl?
