It’s hard to believe I’ve been doing morning radio for over 20 years. That’s over 20 years of getting up around 4am to be at work by 5. You would think I’m a total morning person since I’ve done it for so long but I’m here to tell you…..I am a snoozer. I usually set my alarm at 3:30 AM knowing I will hit the snooze at least 2 times before I can drag myself into the shower.
Until now, I didn’t really think much about my routine, but as I watch all of the Olympians and read their stories, I am realizing that I’m sabotoging myself with my routine. Take Olympic skier Ashley Caldwell, who says the morning sets the tone for the day. She looks at mornings as an opportunity to spring into action and get started training….which is 6-8 hours or a regular work day for you and me!
How does she do it though? Not everyone can just “be” a morning person and if you do get up early, how do you stay motivated later in the day? Here’s more about how she does it.
