25 - The 5am Club
Show Notes

I am facing a problem. I have limited time, limited energy, and a lot of responsibility. Not to mention, a lot of drive to create things that take time, energy, leaps of faith, and relentless focus. There’s not much room to be a skeptic when you weigh the cost of waiting on the sidelines for the perfect solution to fall into your lap.

The 5 am Club includes a set of activities that are supposedly meant to boost three areas of your internal life: your physical health, your intellectual health, and your emotional health. They suggest starting your day with 20 minutes of vigorous exercise (something that makes you sweat), journaling for 20 minutes, and reading for 20 minutes. 


I happen to really believe these three key areas of wellness (physical, emotional, mental health) are key in identifying the heart of your internal struggles, finding you “why” and honing in on your life’s purpose. The idea of putting dedicated time against doing small actions that maintain and improve the foundation of what I know I need to feel good felt like a good enough reason to give it a try. After all, a little sweat, reading and some quality alone time sounded like heaven. Who was I to judge?!


And so, like a moth drawn to the light, I tried to join the club for a week, despite the fear of being judged by no one but myself for being one of those annoying 5 am people.

Spoiler, I turned into one. 

But it was not all butterflies and rainbows and you won’t find me sugar coating the pain and discomfort that came with going from night owl to morning person. 

Here’s how I became a morning person after trying the 5 am Club for 7 days.
