2016/12/26 The paradox of getting up early

If you search for them, the Internet introduces to you millions of reasons why you should get up early. As I am really vulnerable to such temptations for better life, I made efforts to be an early riser several times in the past, only to lead a worse life than ever.

Today I would like to share with you what happen when I have gotten up early that make my life even worse than otherwise. First, I am more irritable. I can even be furious at it being very cold. Of course, there is no one to blame for it. So, there is no hope of making myself tranquil, except eating in excess. 

It leads us to the second point: I can never be an early riser without at the same time being gluttonous. My fury can be soothed easily by eating a great amount. It is often said that our body is so made that the less you sleep, the more hungry you become. 

Excessive eating results in the number three: being drowsy and less focused. I get restless at the desk, unable to keep seated, drifting all the way through to the comfortable bed that has been awaiting me since as early as 6 o'clock. No other reunion could never be moving than this.

So, when I get up early with a view to starting my productive, creative and refreshing day, my attemps are met with these: irritability, gluttony and distraction. They always conspire to make my day start much later than usual, by compelling me to return to the bed. This would be far from understandable to the autonomous people. But getting up early surely comprises a paradox for me.
