Early Morning Goals

Welcome to Above Yourself, a blog about self-improvement and faith. If you're new here, you may want to subscribe in a reader or subscribe by email. Many of the topics here are related to my faith in Jesus Christ and Mormonism, but all are welcome to share their own beliefs. Thanks for visiting!

Now that my morning schedule has changed, I’ve decided to set a goal to get up early in the morning so that I can go to the gym. My only problem is that my morning nemesis is the alarm clock. How can I get up early in the morning?

I’ve decided that my best way to do this was to inspire myself and reward myself with a more exciting gym workout. I’ve set up my mp3 player to download some new podcasts from IfYeArePrepared.org (I’ll talk more about this later) for me automatically, and I’m pretty excited because these daily podcasts have LDS conference talks and other inspirational messages that will help me start out the day well. Getting up early will also help me move other things to the morning, including my daily scripture reading. I’m pretty excited.

Steve Pavlina has told me how to get up right when my alarm goes off, and 43things has linked me to a community of people who are also trying to wake up early. In my experience, a sense of community is really helpful in achieving goals, especially ones like exercise and weight loss.
