Medically, I may sound like I am sleep deprived, but I am sure I am not. Instead of wasting time while struggling to sleep back after waking up in the middle of the night, I did make my day commence early in the morning; and have been doing the same ever since then.
I never knew and had no interest of knowing what it feels like to sleep less. Because for twenty five years I had my normal 6-8 hours of sleep cycle. And sometimes even more to compensate my afternoon naps, not really guilty about that.
In early twenties, I had developed an irregular sleeping pattern – sleeping late, waking up late, waking up too many times and falling back asleep, and sometimes do not sleep due to nightmares.
Gradually, things changed without even planning. When I started waking up before 4 am and somewhat around 3:30 without an alarm clock, it caused an immense discomfort. It made me feel drowsy in the day time which completely hindered my schedule.
For a week or two, I was going through a change which caused me a varied amount of discomfort which I didn’t enjoy. One day, I thought from now onward I won’t plan my sleep. I slept when I fell sleepy and woke up when I feel like. I left everything to my body and follow what it wants me to do.
The results turned out to be amazing than I thought. I have been up around 4 am and have maximum time for myself; for 2 hours I listened to motivational and inspirational podcasts, do meditation and some light exercises. Then I write with my calm mind and it is like creativity flows into me with no efforts.
I was becoming a portal of creation, everything I create, it turned out to be beautiful. I have been enjoying my morning routine, as if I am addicted to it.
I have all those writing ideas early in the morning and by which I am able to do everything better.
