The Five A.M. Wake: Beneficial or Exhausting


More time means more productivity. Have you ever wondered how to fit enough time in your day to get everything accomplished?

Changing Time and Changing Your Morning

If you have a busy job or your own business, it’s hard enough to wake up to an alarm clock.  The stress rises when time is cut in half in the morning by late wake-ups. When you have plenty of time you can slowly ease into your caffeine, the cold and dark morning, and all the stressors that confront you in the morning.



The Five A.M. Club

Susie moor, an entrepreneur and life coach, sleeps until 8 or 9 in the morning until reading Robin Sharma’s book “The 5 a.m. Club.” Most people feel groggy and unable to navigate until 8 am. Our bodies can become so exhausted by a long work week that the very idea of waking up at 5 a.m. seems excruciating.  Are there benefits to waking up at 5 a.m?


Being a life coach, Susie Moor understands the idea of self control in all areas of one’s life.  It takes discipline and self control to change habits that are hindering daily-life responsibilities. Before She took on the challenge of waking up at 5 a.m., she would procrastinate or put certain items on her check-list for another day.  Now, she is finding plenty of time in the morning to complete tasks and her stress has decreased.


Changing Hours

Moor has had to change other habits to accompany her new sleeping time.  Bedtime for her is 9:30 pm. She sleeps 7 ½ hours even though she is used to more sleep. She believes that these extra hours in the morning has added some extra fuel in her day. The “60/10 method” of working for 60 minutes, taking a 10 minute walk, and also taking some time in reflection has changed her life. Gathering the most of the hours of your day starts in the morning. Unfortunately, the day can rush right past us in the most essential parts of the day.
