Want a more productive day? Wake up before 5 AM.

Want a more productive day? Wake up before 5 AM.

You go to bed at 1 AM, your alarm goes off at 6 AM in hopes of getting you to that 7 AM yoga class. You snooze, over and over again. Finally, realizing you'll be late for your first meeting at work, you drag yourself out of bed at 7:45, and rush to the door skipping breakfast. 

You barely make it to work on time, you're hungry, and you didn't have time to catch up on your emails before getting into your day.

We've all been there. When we wake up "just in time", productivity is generally shot for the day. 

For the past month, I have been challenging myself to get up before 5 AM, on a consistent basis. I live about 50 minutes outside of Boston, and one of my favorite Yoga studios that actually offers a morning class is in Cambridge. In order for me to make that 6 AM class, I have to leave my house around 5 AM.
