Roll over and sleep until you’re too late for work.
Nah, that’s not me but to be honest I’m always too late, especially in the morning.
Lately I became obsessed with time efficiency,lifehacks, anything that could save me some time in the morning. Every time I read articles about morning routine I think I should wake up at 4 am to meditate, run, do yoga, prepare green smoothie and cherish the sunrise.
The thing I find the most upsetting is the claim some people make: I wake up so early because I’d like to have time for myself before the day starts.
Which doesn’t mean all those people live their lives in service of others, it just means they don’t have time for themselves or they think they don’t. I get it, time before work is the time when I have energy and focus to do something for myself but is it right to do so?
My focus and self-concentration should be limited to the lonely hours at the break of dawn? Only in solitude can we find our true self?
I’m really quite self-concentrated person but somehow it gets me that only the time I spent by myself is considered ‘me-time’. That solitude has gained this supreme value.
I guess a yoga class is me time and although I won’t make the conversation with others I still feel their presence is essential to me.
Time on my own is often hectic while time with others have different rhythm. I like being on my own but I don’t believe that once you’re in the world you loose yourself. You let yourself to do so but it’s you, not the others that make this happen.
