Why do you even wake up @5AM?
Early mornings for me used to be :
A. Stressful trips to the airports, while haven’t got enough sleep.
B. Going fishing with my dad (these were awesome but still I would wake up all triggered and exhausted.)
C. Trips to the hospital.
So far you should have already got the point that early mornings for me = no fun.
What my early mornings are now?
I take my time slowly, because everybody else is still sleeping. I make myself a cup of coffee, cook some light breakfast and listen to some audiobooks or podcasts, depending on the situation. Before I got my knee injured, I also used to jog in the morning.(The views would be even better than in the photo, trust me;))
As simple as it gets. I hate to rush somewhere, for example: school, work, whatever the case might be. I choose to enjoy my time, because good morning sets a tone for the day. Main pros:
A. You feel motivated. It’s an awesome feeling to have already done much more than your friends or other companies.
B. You learn much more about discipline. Discipline might be a huge factor in your success. F.e: you won’t be amused by that sweet donut at the coffee shop, might save some extra $ or kilos;) There is a quote by Jocko Willink(ex navy seal) - “ Discipline equals freedom.”
C. Productivity level. For some, it might be a huge game changer. Personaly, when I started rising early, it became much easier to finish the tasks in shorter amount of time. However, you should test it and then make conclusions. I just love the idea of testing and learning. Don’t be afraid to sacrifice one week;)
When not to get up early?
PRIORITISE SLEEP HOURS. Some people need 6 hours, others can’t live without 8. Basicaly, don’t sacrifice your sleep hours, so you can rise early. Hell no.
That’s the only situation that I don’t find benefits of waking up early.
As the saying goes : early bird gets the worm.
Thanks for your time❤️
Lately, when being on the buying-side of business, I realized something of profound impact regarding Digital Marketing - many businesses, selling clothes, are now labeling their products in ways to spark specific interests, actively associating to our current era of self-help, plant-based nutrition and other fancy, popular facets to improving oneself. When set to purchase, there’s this underlying believe we’ll become better human beings from this one particular product. Marketing strategies put this to work in many ways, including labeling knits and sweaters’ colors which would otherwise, point-blank, be called ‘beige’, ‘oat’ or ‘oatmeal’. I’m positive this field has been researched upon extensively as of today, however, I’m just speaking from a place of curiosity. I want to learn more about mediapsychology, amongst other fields within Communication Sciences. I’m still a student, and thus I feel like it’s important to state the fact I don’t claim to know anything. I’m not an expert. What are your thoughts on this? How are you cultivating more awareness regarding marketing and its way to impact our day-to-day purchases?
