"Try to make the habit of rising early. Mornings are truly special. Get up, and let your life improve on its own."

Alden, can you start by telling me about your normal morning routine?

Wake up, brush my teeth, down a cup of water (very important) and then coffee.

I choose to do work after that. I call it work because I know I grow from it. E.g. I visit a few specific blogs and have a goal in acquiring knowledge. That's way better than reading random news report or surfing around hoping you'd get something good.

So how come you are an early riser?

I love my mornings man. 8am to 1030am is the bomb. The weather here is always fair. Just having the sun rise above you is a great feeling.

Tell me, what do you see as the main benefits of being an early riser?

I think mornings are where you grow and have perfect bliss the most. Most people have no choice but to go to work or to school, but if they would take a moment and just do nothing, their physical bodies and mind would definitely heal on its own.

In the interest of balance, do you see any negative sides from rising early?

Only if you have a lack of sleep, like 2 hours. 

How did you develop this habit of waking up early?

Honestly, I've had a lot of trouble waking up early as I used to work in a club as a bouncer. I re-worked my body clock by going to bed earlier and then whatever time I wake up (usually very early), I just get up, even if it's dark out.

How do you manage to keep your energy level high throughout the entire day?

I just do work man. I write a blog post. I think the best way is to express your creative energy. The feeling of satisfaction from creating something is energy alone.

Finally, what impact would you say early rising has had on your life in general?

I actually feel a better sense of accomplishment in the work I do throughout the day.

Previously, I used to work at night. Although sometimes the hours of productivity are the same, it just didn't have the same flow it has if you wake up early and work throughout.

Also, if you rise early and actually do something for your whole day, you actually kind of get that "Live life to the fullest" feel.

Try to make the habit of rising early. Mornings are truly special. Get up, and let your life improve on its own. Even if you don't do anything great in the morning, the feeling alone would just make you grow as a person in some zen-like way.
