Early mornings often receive a bad rap. Most people would rather hit the snooze button and stay in bed. Perhaps this is a consequence of modern living. The association of early mornings with the workweek and the tired rush of everyday life has sullied their reputation. Additionally, late nights and intoxication rarely pair well with early mornings.
However, there is something about early mornings that extra hours of sleep simply cannot replicate. Witnessing the break of dawn is a truly unique experience, one that humbles, reassures, and fills us with a sense of bliss. It’s a gift to watch the earth open its eyes, and to be present in that moment is to truly “be” and feel connected to nature. Even if you decide to return to bed afterward, the experience of being present for the start of a new day is truly special.
