Mental WOD 15: Get Up 1 Hour Earlier

Human…Turkish Get-Up’s in the morning???

Every morning I wake up (@645am most days) watch MY WIFE get up and go workout. And I…roll over and snooze for another 45min to an hour. I am so impressed by her work ethic and consistentency. Rain or shine she is up and ready to go, and she is not a morning person, trust me:-) And the results speak for herself. Today I was ‘planning’ on getting up with her, but the same old story happened…GRRRR!

So I am just gonna pull the damn trigger and do it this week and make it this week’s Mental WOD. Plan to get up every morning 1 hour earlier than normal and add in a workout, journaling, prayer, affirmations, or anything that is going to promote you to be better and empower you for the rest of the day.


Get up one hour earlier than the rest of your household. Gain clarity on your priorities and start your day empowered. “Use the time as an inspirational hour—reconnect with you mission, core values and review your goals,” says Robin Sharma, motivational expert and author of The Leader Who Had No Title. “This will build deep focus against distractions as you move through your day.” Or spend your hour meditating, visualizing achieving what’s most important to you, writing in a journal, listening to music, reciting  affirmations or exercising.

Just DO IT early birds!

What will you do with you extra hour?
