What is it like to wake up at 3:30am?
People often ask me what time I get up in the morning for work. When I tell them that I wake up at 3:30am, they usually follow up the first question with this question: "What is it like to wake up at 3:30am"?
I never know how to answer other than to say that I have gotten used to waking up at 3:30am. It's rarely easy to get up, but your body does adjust to the early hours.
This morning, I woke up at my normal time . In the dark, I put on some shorts and a t-shirt that were sitting on the side of my bed. I walked into the bathroom to do my business and brush my teeth. When I looked in the mirror, I thought to myself "this is what it LOOKS like to wake up at 3:30 in the morning".
I took a picture.
Could I have opened my eyes more for the picture? Yes. I guess I could have smiled as well, but that wasn't why I took this picture. I took this picture so that you can see what it's like to wake up at 3:30am.
It's not always pretty, but coffee helps. So does getting dressing in a room with lights on.
