When you open your eyes and it’s hours before your alarm, you have a couple choices. Wallow in frustration as the morning light floods your room, or spend those waking hours doing something productive. We’re big fans of the latter.
Some days — no matter how much coffee you consume — it’s a struggle to keep your eyes open. But that same night, you crash hard just to find yourself wide awake at 3am. Instead of spending emotional energy being frustrated, try to get something done. Catch up on a book, some work, the news, or the ever-fleeting task of cleaning your baseboards.
