Default Join me on the 5 am challenge.

It's pretty well documented that many of the most successful, productive people in all of history wake up early.

Waking up early naturally at 5 gives us the best energy and spirit in the morning, when we have that time to ourselves in a rejuvenated state to do something productive with our life. For some, lifting weights, others studying or just to work on their craft.

The goal is to wake up 5-10 minutes earlier every week until you start getting up at 5 naturally.

That's not true. I am unsuccessful and wake up at 5 am everyday. I hate it so bad I want to kill myself.

There are two reasons you wake up at 5 am:

You HAVE to.

Or

You want to.

If you must wake up at 5 am because a shift starts at 6, need to take care of babies, etc then that's a different story.

This is for the people that want to try and boost productivity and promote overall well being. If you just Google waking up early the results are everywhere.

Americans average under 6.5 hours of sleep. 7-9 is recommended by some established sleep org. I would not go below 6 per day, while I think 7 is optimal for most people.

I wake up at 5:30 most mornings. I'm naturally a light sleeper and can never raelly sleep in. It's annoying at times because even if I don't go to bed until like 3am I'll still wake up early.

I work a 9-5 but I have started to study hard to go back to school. I want to wake up earlier to give me more productive time. When I get home from work I am generally less motivated and tired. I wake at 7:30 now and my best hours are spent on my commute and for my employer. I'm going to be more selfish and use that time to exercise, plan the day, and do work.

I like the thought of waking up early and having my coffee and newspaper on the balcony before conquering the world, but I work irregular hours where I do 17hr shifts that finish at 7-8am 3 times a week

Current time: 5:30 am ET.

Woke up at 5. Emptied garbage, ate breakfast, about to shower and brush teeth and get ready for work.

True. There's been tons of studies on it.

I wake up around 6:35 (or 6:40 when I DGAF), shower, eat, and take the trash out to leave for work by 7:15 to get there at 8.

5 am sounds awful.
