I’m not a morning person myself. Anything before 9:30 AM is not being dealt with unless my eyes are closed while I’m doing it, and I reserve the right to complain about it the entire time. It’s not that I don’t admire those who can get up at the crack of dawn and conquer the world; in fact I somewhat envy them. I’m just not built for it, nor do I have the desire to train myself and get accustomed to it.
I have breakfast at 2pm and go to work at 4 in the afternoon… The 9 to 5 life in a cubicle isn’t for me.
Here’s what I’m getting at though…
Some people… Those with seemingly boring 9 to 5 jobs aren’t all that boring after all.
Apparently there’s a thing called “Daybreakers”. It’s a morning movement that promises to jolt your day into action in a way you’ve never seen before.
Forget the extra loud alarm sounds that supposedly can scare you into being awake. Forget putting the alarm clock on the opposite end of the bedroom, forcing you to get up and walk over there to shut it off. How effective can that method be anyway? I’d probably pass right back out on the floor the moment I shut the damn thing off. Forget going through the motions of your morning routine, splashing cold water on your face and chugging numerous cups of coffee. Now all you have to do to wake up is attend a rave!
That’s right ladies and gentlemen; this group of people organizes events all over the world that starts partying as early as 4:30 in the morning. Who needs sleep and rest when you have sex drugs and… techno?
Besides it’s much easier to get up when you know you’re about to go to a party instead of a boring job. You practically jump out of bed in anticipation of it, slap on some neon tights, take your work clothes to go and take off! Arrive at a boat, jump around, snort some coke, drink some water, wash your face, change and boom you’re at your desk by 9. Talk about a jump start!
Following that kind of a morning, your work day is bound to fly by. And then you come home, crash and do it all over again the next day – Brilliant. Also no one is forcing you to do drugs at these things. They’re not provided for purchase or anything but it is my understanding that no one is going to make you check them at the door either. So it’s literally up to you if you wanna get pumped and dance or just dance. Either way you win.
These Daybreakers, which can be found here, are almost making me want to give office jobs a shot. Almost.
