On a day off, getting up an hour early is ridiculous. An hour earlier than what. On a day off, I don’t set the alarm. I don’t have a plan for getting up at a particular time. I get up when I wake up. Mind you, I am single. No real expectations for my day off. Or I haven’t been told of any, if there are.
It is certainly an interesting idea. Getting up an hour early would give time to plan the day, be intentional about what to accomplish, time to write 500 words, time to have breakfast, a real breakfast, not simply a bagel and coffee.
Taking time at the beginning of the day for quiet and meditation is definitely important. I see the value in this. I haven’t believed it to be true. Otherwise, I would do it. I would make it a habit. Oh wait, I have the hardest time getting to bed early.
Being a night owl has been my norm since forever. However, I did find that when I worked retail convenience, I enjoyed the morning shift the best. Maybe it is time to try and change my night owl habit. Changing habits are hard, but seeing the value in being up before the crack of dawn, it is time to try. It is time to make it happen.
Planning for the day, meditating, contemplation, maybe even a brisk morning walk are things that will do me good. What do you think?
Changing the subject, have you watched Broadchurch? I love a good crime drama, and this is a good one. I’m terribly happy that I was able to watch it through, without having to wait a week between episodes.
I had a hard time solving the mystery, which for me is bonus. I liked that there was little foreshadowing of the conclusion. Things happened in the story that I wasn’t expecting. Though my only expectation was that the ending would be sob-worthy.
Enough of that now, I wouldn’t want to give a spoiler of the story. And if I blather on more, I might be mean and share it. I do know that when the filming took place the creator/writer tried to keep the mystery under wraps, from everyone including the actors involved.
It is a tough thing in today’s connected world to keep something like the plot of story secret. Spoilers abound everywhere. Facebook statuses, Twitter timelines and other social media platforms are rife with conversation about programs and movies. I commend the people involved in Broadchurch for what they did, making a series worth watching. And even more surprised that the lead actor stayed on for the American remake, Gracepoint. Now I might need to watch that next.
The only attraction for me to watch Broadchurch is that fact the David Tennant, more famously known as the Doctor, is one of the co-leads. But I’m glad to have watched it. It shows a different aspect of the acting abilities of David Tennant.
