Why You Are Tired In The Morning But Happy And Sustained Beyond Your Expectation

When you are tired, sleep, your mind takes on a different type of consciousness than when you are fully alert and refreshed. Your mind is occupied in focusing on how the rest of the day might unfold. It is not your mind that is tired, its your body that takes a rest with that tiredness. Don’t give up on yourself when you feel tired.

If it is working, you are not doing it right. That is the first step in getting into the habit of doing things the right way. This article is about setting up a routine that will not only eliminate fatigue and maintain that state, but will also keep you fresh and motivated past your daily to-do list. I have written this article for people who are trying to change their routine to work a certain way. To this end, I have provided a template to follow.

The next step for this approach is to set aside the time to do it on your schedule. By setting an intention to do it, you put it on your calendar so it is available when you are ready to do it. If your schedule is flexible, feel free to leave room for some unplanned or spontaneous time to make this change.

How many goals can do you have to accomplish? And when? I would say you are already on your way up the ladder.  You may already be one step away from starting to work consistently at this kind of habit.

Step 7: The Daily Habit

The Daily Habit is essentially your daily routine. In this article, I have provided a template to follow, but you need not follow it exactly. It is a good guideline, but not the end all and be all of how you do things. This is important, because as you start to notice that when you get tired, you do less of what you actually need to do to keep yourself fresh and motivated every day, you have a few options:

1) If you can find a way to do the things you need to do consistently on a daily basis, with no problem, then go for it! That would require more daily practice than I can give you in this article. So, if your goal is consistently doing the things outlined above, you are already on the way, so no pressure there. However, if you want to keep yourself fresh, it will take more of your attention. If you have an important project you need to tackle, or a family or social obligation you need to maintain, then that may be too much to bear one day. I would recommend sticking to the habit of putting it on your calendar and seeing what works for you over the long term.

2) If, without a doubt, you are unable to do something on a daily basis, you can create a “daily” routine, similar to the Daily Habit. But, that may put more of an onus of your schedule on your shoulders, with the added pressure of what you are doing. For example, say you always work two jobs and are constantly traveling. In a typical day, if you want to be at your house on time, then you need to commit to coming there to work. Even if you are able to make this dedication and follow a regular routine, you are still forced to wake up a little earlier to get around town (and therefore to get there on time), so you may not be able to do other things consistently on a daily basis. But this can be worked around, and in many cases it is actually preferable. Some people have been working as a sole breadwinner since young. A lot of those people make it work by putting a schedule on themselves that allows them to be home at exactly 9am, 7pm, and 11pm each day. It works for that, and I highly recommend it. But the issue here is that sometimes the schedule must be flexible.
