I love having that half an hour of solitary shower time in the morning before the kids are awake. Also, if you are craving that too, getting up just that little bit earlier may be right for you. It is a perfect idea to spend some “me time” to start the day and this is especially beneficial when you are pregnant. Having a positive activity before I hit the busy schedule means, I have accomplished a lot in those quiet minutes of the morning. On the next few hours, I tend to feel a lot less energy to get things done.
Waking up early does not mean I start on my daily chores right away. Sometimes I sit and listen to the morning radio with a book and a cup of tea. Some days it is catching up on emails, checking today's tasks, and organizing. Whatever it is I am doing, I make sure to rise earlier so I can get what I want to do, done.
If you have a young baby and do not get to sleep the entire evening properly yet (do not worry, you will experience it as well), then I do not recommend doing this. If you like to stay up late but has had enough, and prefer to lie in, stick to what works for you. Nevertheless, if you want rising earlier and is finding ways of doing that, this article is the one for you.
