Waking Up Early Challenge

Today I watched this TED Talk on how waking up at 4:30am can change your life. Here is the video.

I am incredibly intrigued by the idea of waking up (and getting up) at 4:30, and to see what my life would look like after getting into this habit to the point where it’s just on autopilot.

If a human being like Filipe Castro Matos can do it, a human being like you and me can do it too. Right.

So I decided to take on this early rising challenge (ahhhh!) for 21 days which sounds crazy, but that was the challenge other people did last year, #21earlydays. I’m just a little bit late to the game.

It’s already 9:24pm so I really should start getting ready for bed then. Maybe 4:30 is too early (yes, it really is), so I’ll push back the time to….5:30. Sounds good. Okay, so let’s begin Day 1……. What am I getting myself into….

Amy Lo is a millennial whose life today looks very different from what it looked like a year ago. A year ago she was living by herself in an isolated studio where she often spent many days depressed and bedridden, unable to get up to go to work, because of her soon-to-be broken-off wedding engagement. A year later she finds herself happier than she ever was in her life, and does things she never thought she could do, like waking up early and going to the gym multiple times a week! Because of her personal experience, Amy hopes to inspire and encourage other young adults who may be in a seemingly perpetual funk, by sharing things she's found helpful in positively redirecting the trajectory of her life. She believes it's never too late to turn your life around, and there is always a light at the end of the tunnel, no matter how dark it may be at the moment.
