A Trick to Wake Up at 4 A.M. with Serious Motivation

This trick is a little abstract and requires an open mind to implement. I’ve had great success with it since the beginning of 2019 and so I wanted to share it with my readers and friends.

Winston Churchill did everything he accomplished with only sleeping 6 hours a night, so don’t think just because you have to wake up early you also have to go to bed early. You can still go to bed at midnight and wake up at 4 A.M. if you can power through the first rough week until your body gets used to it. But if you do this I’d recommend having a 25 minute nap during the day.

Now what’s the rick, buddy?

Good question. Hardcore atheists may not like the sound of this trick, but that’s where their weakness lies. Keep an open mind as I describe to you the habits of medieval Christian monks in monasteries.

Monks had extreme discipline and self-control, and I like to study them when I try to gain these qualities in my own life. Every single night, monks in monasteries did and still do wake up in the middle of the night in order to chant and pray. In medieval Christianity, it was believed to be vital for all of Christendom for monks to do this, for the saints and gods would bless the people living near the monasteries for the monks’ services.

So in order to learn from this behavior and use it to our advantage, we should seek to imitate it. We often tell ourselves before bed with utmost seriousness that we WILL wake up early tomorrow, but by the time the morning rolls around, we, with our cheeks comfortably on the pillows, no longer have that sense of seriousness and it’s so easy to hit the snooze button.

So what we should do in the morning is immediately remind ourselves of how serious this is to us by thinking about medieval monks in monasteries. If you joined a monastery and refused to wake up in the middle of the night to join the prayers and chants, you wouldn’t be a monk for very long. Start the day at 4 A.M. by thinking about medieval monks as soon as your alarm clock goes off. A cool way to do this would be to make the sound of your alarm clock a medieval Christian chant. A poster of a cathedral or something by your bed could also work.

We all have many reasons why we would like to wake up earlier and sleep less. For me, it’s all about making my future better. If we can develop this habit early in life, we could very well save years of productive time for ourselves by the end. The average person sleeps 1/3 of their life away, but we don’t really need to.

To make this trick work even better, I also like to get on my knees, light a candle and pray like a medieval monk when my alarm clock goes off. And by praying I mean visualizing what my day will look like, and I also remind myself of the seriousness of my life goals. Like I said, this trick requires an open mind. BUT IT WORKS!!!!

Studying for Final Exams? Here’s the Best Thing that Can Help!

A lot of student’s believe hovering over your notes trying to memorize everything is what you should do before exams. But, is this really the best thing?

Knowing and memorizing mean very little! It’s the understanding and application of knowledge that really matters. Doing flash card tests and memorizing everything may still get you a decent grade, but a year later will you still remember everything? Verily, if you want to get an even better grade AND remember things for as long as you live, you need to find a way to apply this knowledge after understanding it!

For example, if you learn names and dates about WWII history, try writing a short story that incorporates all these. Or if you must remember a bunch of math equations, try making a puzzle out of them that you have to put back together. Also, if you’re going to drink on Friday night with your university buddies, why not make studying a drinking game? This means you’re not just remembering information; you’re acting on it, too!

Say you only have 1 day left before you have 2 exams in the morning. What’s another great thing you can do? The ultimate thing to do in this case is DON’T WORRY! Follow the advice of this song, and act like you know you’ll win!

Use self-fulfilling prophecies to your advantage and BELIEVE everything will be okay!

Assuming you paid attention in class, you have a right to feel confident. Go into that test believing you’ll ROCK IT! And the chances that you will rock it will be much, much higher than if you go in believing you’ll fail.

So I’d say good luck, but you don’t need it! Don’t forget to check back soon for more Anti Fatigue tips and advice.
