what gets you out of bed in the morning?
Once I hit my mid-winter blahs, I start playing the "why should I get out of bed today?" game. It's a fresh spin on my reluctant-to-get-out-of-bed-to-a-freezing-cold-morning routine. To get myself out of bed, I pick one thing from my day that will be worth experiencing. Just one. And that is usually enough to get me moving. Today it's looking forward to having the Milwaukee Jesuit Volunteers over for dinner and going to a Lakefront Brewery Tour with them. Focusing on whatever little thing will be good about my day is much more effective than focusing on the warmth of my bed. I remind myself that I can't have a variety of good experiences if I never get out of bed. (Though I know there are some who may argue with me on that.)
