It’s winter. The sun is hiding (currently) behind the snow that is coming down in the East Village. The weather app says its raining – but this is thick snow. There’s no denying it,  it’s winter and it’s becoming harder and harder to get up in the morning. 

When I lived in LA for a year, I woke up with the bright sun shining, ready to embrace the day ahead of me.  And now I just want to get that back to that routine – sans sunshine. Believe me, I have the best of intentions, setting my alarm for 6:15am, 6:30am, and 6:45am meanwhile continuing to snooze until 7:15am.  My goal is to start doing some yoga sequences, journal writing and reading for pleasure during that extra morning time before I open my email. 

But I can’t seem to make it as routine as I would like.

Does this happen to you? What do you do to get up earlier?
