On Becoming a Morning Reader

Source: twitter

I often think about becoming a morning person. I have tried getting up early, having a cuppa of coffee (caffeine has its wonders), do my stuff. But that did not work out very well. I end up being drowsy all the time, yawning unnecessarily, and not able to do what I intend to do. Thus I have decided to, instead of trying to become a morning person, let’s give a shot to become a morning reader.

Ground rules for being a morning reader are the same as of being a morning person:

  • Get a healthy sleep. Whatever number of hours work for you, and what you can manage. I am not going to be definitive here in describing a number due some mediocre research done by some dull organization.
  • Wake up
  • Get your body moving. Some physical workout.
  • Take a cold shower
  • Read the book

Of course, apart from the first two bullet points, rest are not in a particular order. If you have an existing regime, adjust that too. Nothing is definitive again. It’s all about a routine. A habit.

This way I am trying to get more reading time and am developing a habit of getting up early. There are benefits of being a morning person as well as of being a nocturnal creature. Let us not get into that discussion now.  We have our energy levels at par in the morning and spending some times, say 20-30 minutes, on reading something fruitful, will grab your attention and lift up your mood and will charge you for the day as it does to me.

Are you a morning reader? Have you tried reading Shakespeare in Morning?

  1. I’m a morning reader! Mind you, I find it easy to read at any time of the day 🙂 morning is the quietist time in my house, as I’m usually the first awake, so I can read without being disturbed


    1. That’s so great. Normally, or I should say earlier I did not have a problem with reading, but now career and stuff, I lose a lot of my reading time. I am trying to adapt this habit to at least start each and every day with little satisfaction.

  2. Lol have I tried reading Shakespeare in the morning. Ha!
    I’m a morning reader, but only Mon-Fri. The majority of my reading takes place to and from work. However, I’m not a morning person so after a couple paragraphs, I start to nod off. I think my brain starts working after noon.


    1. That happened with me too, the nodding off in the start. I can’t read when I travel, I don’t it’s just I am too distracted while traveling, also the metro transport here is too crowdy. I have had some hard time finding places to read.


  3. I’ve started getting to work 20-35 minutes early (depending on traffic) and spend the time reading in my car. Uninterrupted, almost no distractions, and a great way to start the day.


  4. “I am not going to be definitive here in describing a number due some mediocre research done by some dull organization” – Thank you for being one less person to tell me what I should be doing with my life. As for morning reading…this night owl wishes you the best of luck.
