Help me wake up for my Subuh prayers!
Early to bed,
Early to rise,
Makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.
Or in my case "Makes a woman" healthy, wealthy and wise.
Very true indeed.
Now all I know is I hate waking up late in the morning. One is because 24 hours is no longer enough for me, being a mom and all, and two, because I feel that my most productive time is now in the morning, when I feel all fresh and motivated to start a new day. There is this kind of "missing out" feeling that I get when I realize that I wake up late, those few hours of productivity that I missed which of course, cannot be retrieved again.
Although, there is one thing that I still have to improve : Waking up for Fajr (Subuh) prayers.
I am not going to lie her, I even confess:
I suck at waking up for Fajr prayers.
That is my biggest spirituality problem. And I hope that I can find a solution to it soon. You see there are days that I am so determined and I am so sure that I will wake up on time for the prayer (setting lots of alarms and such), but it always fails.
Sigh. How lahhhh..
Shame on me if I don't work on this. Like seriously am I thinking of living this way for the rest of my life? So much for being better today than tomorrow. Huhu. And I have my children to teach this to, how lah to teach if I don't lead by example.
I was googling about waking up early and here's one of the thing that I found (aaahh..this could be helpful) :
Readers, do you have this problem too? Besides what was shared in Productive Muslim article above, do you have any other personal tips to share on how I can work on this?
P/S: I better go to sleep now, perhaps one thing that hinders me from waking up early is because I sleep late!
