Come alzarsi presto la mattina_

Did you know that one of the questions I am asked most often is, how do you manage to get up early, Monty? As if I were an expert in getting-up-early science. I know nothing about it, nor do I have a video course on how to get up early in the morning. But perhaps people say, “Ah, Monty gets up at 5.40 am to make his videos,” because actually I can only make videos between 6.30 and 7.30 in the morning. I don’t know, I’m a bit groggy this morning, but let’s just get on with it. So people think you’re an early bird. To be honest, by default, by nature, I’m one of those people who’d get up at 6 pm, really, at 6 in the afternoon. My ideal day? Lying in bed, comfortably, with lots of books, DVDs, which no longer exist. Anyway, watching videos, with a few sweet snacks, chilling out all day. Over the years, however, I’ve forced myself to be the exact opposite. So, here are things that worked for me when I had to get up early in the morning. Just to be clear: you don’t have to get up early in the morning. Yes, I know, we all hear that the most successful people in the world - every two minutes you see a successful person - get up really early in the morning. Ok, it’s true, many do, but not all. I know super-successful people who get up at 3 in the afternoon. Or perhaps you are a performer, an artist, a musician, in short, you live at night and sleep during the day. So it very much depends, everybody’s different. There are things every person wants to do. But ever since Benjamin Franklin said “Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise,” everyone is a little obsessed with this idea of getting up early. Let’s start with some useful tips: Ok, I’ll say what works for me, then you can write comments and tell me what works for you when you have to get up early. Going to bed early, I try to sleep 7-8 hours. So I aim for 9.30, 10.30, to be my bedtime. That's it. "Monty, don’t you go to discos?". No, I don’t go to discos. "Monty", no, I go to bed early. Obviously you don’t always manage to stick to this routine, but, generally speaking, if I am at home, I try to. Second useful tip: get up in the morning and have something exciting or interesting to do. “Exciting” is perhaps a big word. Interesting to do. Here’s an example: if you get up in the morning knowing you have to go and sing songs by Al Bano and Romina, perhaps you don’t feel enthusiastic. But it helps if as soon as you get up in the morning you say, “Great, now I’m off to do this,” something you like and are interested in. For example, I like making videos, I like it. Getting up early is no effort. I say, “Great, I’m making my video, blah, blah, blah", at that point everything is easier. It could even be a tiny thing, It could be you get up, go to the toilet and find your favourite little winter heater, when it’s as cold as hell, and you are there, warming yourself up with your little heater. It is a pleasant moment that helps, tic! to give you a gentle little shove, to push you out of bed. Anything that helps you get even a little bit excited about getting up is fine. Another tip, given some time ago, was to drink plenty of water before going to bed, so that you have to go to the toilet, obviously. The problem is that often, if you drink too much water, you wake up at 4 am, and then you go back to bed and don’t get up, so this must be adjusted carefully, drink the right amount. was making it a habit. So if you manage was making it a habit. So if you manage to keep it up for 15, 20 days, one month, your brain is automatically wired and you always get up at that time, nothing changes, not even on Sundays, your brain wakes up. You’re used to it. Once you are used to it, the rest is easy and healthy. Sorry for spitting. Other things to consider: having a cat hich comes in to wake you up, is also something that works. Children who wake up, one of my kids always gets up at 6 am, no matter what happens, he’s up at 6 in the morning. So, he’s awake anyway so you wake up too. So there are some external factors that may deeply affect your getting up or not. How you sleep also makes a difference. It is not just how much you sleep, you can lie in your bed for 8 hours and get up knackered. Because if for example you have kids, you get up, wake up, what’s this, elbow jab. All these little details that affect how you sleep, when you wake up, how you wake up, etc. But, in general, to bring this to a close, I think getting up early is a very positive habit, because you can do loads of things, you can even sit there and meditate, look at the sky, go out. You can exercise, sit there and write, read, you can do whatever you like. It is generally a very, very good thing. And early in the morning nobody calls on the phone, nobody drives you insane with e-mails or stuff that is urgent, urgent, urgent, urgent. It is more a moment of peace for you to enjoy, which I must say works really well for me. And, as somebody I can’t remember said, the world belongs to early risers until everybody else gets up. Then, once they are up, you’re just an idiot like everyone else and, well, nothing has changed. Ok, I’ve spoken for today, I’m going back to sleep.
