There’s something about the solitude of being awake in the wee hours of the morning that seem to invigorate my soul and liven up my creativity. I find solace in the fact that I work while most sleep, and sleep while they party.
The night sky and their starry counterparts are my companions as we work diligently through the evening eager to answer the call of the rising sun. In the quiet hour’s a sense of peace and tranquility flow through me and I am one with my mind.
No chatter, no traffic, no commotion just me and my thoughts flowing into a sea of creativity. I find peace and solitude in the wee hours of the morning that is unmatched to any time of day.
In my opinion, these are the best conditions to work or to reflect. Quiet, peaceful, tranquility.
The world has not yet risen, and you can find satisfaction in knowing that you won’t be interrupted by unwanted distractions and notifications begging for your attention. It’s at this time where you can gain a head start on the rest of the world as it casually slumbers dreaming of the reality your creating at that very moment.
Once I discovered the wonders of waking at half past dark I have seemed to find a surge of creativity that made its way to my mind and body.
I have a level of clarity that I can caress and form into a raging fire of inspiration.
The silence is therapeutic and much needed compared to the usual hustle and bustle that rattles us during the day. The night sky has a calming effect that helps you work towards your goals while the world dreams about theirs.
While you grind in solitude, they sleep in silence. When they rise blurry eyed you have intense focus. As they pour coffee, you perfect your craft.
The mental edge that you gain during these moments where the earth stands still is invaluable.
You have a commanding lead in life and are ready to face any challenges the day has in store. You feel a sense of satisfaction knowing that you stood as a silent sentinel, protecting your dreams as you perfected you profession.
The peace cloaks me with an armor of diligence that protects from procrastination. I have come to cherish my alone time and would not trade it for anything in the world.
I enjoy these moments and would encourage everyone to try it for themselves. You’ll find that early rising is ideal to jump on projects that require additional attention or to allocate time to other things you can’t do during the day.
You’ll notice that not only do these hours seem to last longer but that without distractions you increase in productivity.
It’s a zen-like state that gives you an alarming level of energy. Without distractions, you’ll find yourself locked in and creating at an astonishing rate.
It’s similar to runners high, once you hit that second wind, you can seemingly work forever without interruption as they inspiration flows through you. It keeps you going, and momentum carries you to new boundaries that you have never seen before.
You can build a beautiful masterpiece or perfect the one you having been building; the choice is yours. These moments on interruption are invaluable when you compare it to the busyness of the world around us.
With this additional time, you’ll find the time to knock out things that you have been putting off, and needing to fix. You’ll be able to take full control over the day and command productivity over your ever elusive time.
What you find at zero dark thirty will not only surprise but invigorate you with energy that you didn’t know existed. But don’t take my word for it, try it for yourself. Until then my friends continue to rise to the occasion, while we create our realities.
