You want to get in the habit of waking up early? You asshole. Why would you do this?
Oh yeah, because I made it sound so fucking awesome a little while back. Enjoyable, even.
I snark otherwise, but I actually think resolutions are great. I think choosing a point of the year, whether Jan 1 or your birthday or national cupcake day, as a demarcation point for a fresh, blank slate is a very healthy practice.
That's right, 'Enjoying' is the first word. While I will get into the 'how to' or 'why' I wake up like a 18th century farmer, the pleasurable aspects are the key here. Note I said 'pleasurable', not 'beneficial', because they are not one and the same and because fuck the benefits.
Marketing is ridiculously hard to escape. Marketers have found new ways to make content creators beholden to them; product placement in shows has turned into entire sub-plots revolving around a sponsored product.
