The Autumn Equinox & Getting Up at 5am...
After reading a few articles on how "soulpreneurs" (more on that in my next blog) are more productive if they get up at 5am, I decided to challenge myself to do this today and am so far encouraged as I can now potter on with those extra jobs that need doing (in my pyjamas!) on a school day, and have the luxury of having enough time to do the more creative work that I've been putting off because there have been too many essential jobs to catch up with, like washing up, all before 9am!
It was also the Autumn equinox yesterday, which for those who don't know, is the time of year when the days and nights are of equal length; "the word is derived from the Latin aequinoctium, from aequus (equal) and nox (genitive noctis) (night)." - Wikipedia
September is also a time in the seaonal cycle when we tend to start getting productive again after the summer, so combining the two seems like the perfect time for me to start getting up early and getting more proactive and I invite you to join me!
Makes me think of "Turn, turn, turn" by The Birds.
