Every person has his or her own reason to look forward to the day ahead, a reason to get out of bed in the morning. I’m not much of a morning person and it’s always a struggle for me to get up in the mornings because I love sleeping in. I could sleep the whole day if I didn’t have to go to work, that’s how lazy I can be. I would only get up to eat something and then I’ll go back to lying down. That’s how I spend some of my weekends.
My motivation to get out of bed varies from day-to-day – it’s usually easier when I’m excited about something that will happen during the day. What I want to talk about is how reading a good book sometimes makes it a lot less difficult for me to start my day. When I’m in the middle of a book that I’m enjoying, I don’t mind waking up to go to work because at least I can read a few chapters while on the train. I guess it’s kind of like how coffee or eating a delicious breakfast can jumpstart your day, it gives you the boost that you need. (Okay, so this post is just making it more and more obvious that my top three favorite things to do are sleeping, eating and reading.) I’ve also noticed that I’m in a better mood when I’m reading an amazing novel – you know, the type of books that you can’t stop thinking about even while you’re busy during the work day. So it’s always a good thing whenever I’m reading something that I’m really into. I wonder if the same thing goes for the rest of you? Does reading a good book help you get out of bed in the morning? Also, feel free to share any tips that you have on making it easier get out of bed!
