Waking Up With the Sun

Eloise Wilkin
In paying attention to the sunrise/sunset calendar I printed from sunrisesunset.com, I realized that January 1st is the perfect month to begin getting up earlier! 

Every day, set your alarm for the same time the sun rises.

January 1 - 14:  You have two whole weeks to get used to arising at 6:58!

January 15-18:  Arise one minute earlier:  6:57
January 19-21:  Another minute:  6:56
January 22-23:  6:55
January 24-25:  6:54
January 26-27:  6:53
January 28:       6:52
January 29-30:  6:51
January 31:       6:50

You've painlessly begun your quest to get up with the sun!

Half of you are thinking "I WISH I could sleep in that long" but the other half is praying that God will help them as they attempt to arise earlier.

You can always set your alarm for 5-10 minutes earlier than the sun so that you can be outside when it arises.  I've come to love the pre-dawn hour.  Speaking of which - the sun is rising!  Out I go for my walk.

God bless you through the coming year in your quest to live the life God intends for you.

  1. I really need to get up earlier. So true. Some days I feel like the day is half over before it begins.
    Great post. Thanks for sharing.

  2. What a great way to painlessly get in the habit ...

    I love the idea of being outside when the sun comes up - but not in our 25° weather right now ...

    1. I must admit - right after I wrote this I stopped going outside for a walk - too cold! Brrrr.
