Quote Collection: Becoming an Early Riser [EEW]

This morning while researching the selection of quotes I’ll be using in my next book, I came across a few that stood out to me on the topic of being an early riser. Throughout most of my life, I’ve attempted to wake early, yet resolved that it simply was not part of my body clock. The truth is, it still isn’t. I’m not wired that way. And that’s why it’s so incredible that a simple mindset shift can literally outrun how you’ve been wired your whole life.

How someone has always done something or has never been able to do something does not necessarily have to define them. If it matters enough, it gets to be a choice.

In the case of becoming an early riser, a pattern of habit we find in the Pros, and for those trying to figure out why the hell they’d ever want to wake up at the crack of dawn, here a few wise words from wise people to get the wheels turning:

“Early rising not only gives us more life in the same number of years, but adds, likewise, to their number; and not only enables us to enjoy more of existence in the same time, but increases also the measure.”
~ Caleb C. Colton


“The time just before dawn contains the most energy of all hours of the day. This has helped me become an early riser and an early doer…. When I wake to see that it’s light out already, I feel the world has started without me.”
~Terri Guillemets


“I never knew a man come to greatness or eminence who lay abed late in the morning.”
~ Johnathan Swift


Life is too short,” she panicked, “I want more.” He nodded slowly, “Wake up earlier.”
~Dr. SunWolf


The difference between rising at five and seven o’clock in the morning, for forty years, supposing a man to go to bed at the same hour at night, is nearly equivalent to the addition of ten years to a man’s life.”
~Philip Doddridge

About Lauren Rains

Life gets pretty f*cking nuts sometimes, doesn't it? Every day I wake up more to myself and more to this world. This website is an expression of that.

Space Travelers is multi-layered exploration of our existence here on this rock we call Earth. We're going to talk about the matrix, UFOs, and astral travel, and explore our awakening into the divine masculine and feminine. We'll discover our bodies both the physical and subtle body. We'll contemplate the sacredness of mother earth and the concept of who/what the hell made this place in the first place?

I also aim to keep this website rooted and grounded, referring to topics that are effecting us in the here and now, such as fighting against the oppression of women worldwide, pealing away layers of social conditioning greedy capitalists are using to turn us into consumers, and navigating this insane technological revolution before the AI take over. I can geek out on consciousness up in space all day, but life happens here on the ground and this is the time we were born into.

This website is about integrating into our full human experience, aligning with ourselves and with each other, shedding skins and transcending into the unfolding layers of ourselves.

My wish for you, and for myself, is to unfold and evolve into our highest selves. We are spiritual beings having a human experience. We need not sell our souls to the status quo.

I'm on the journey too. I write this blog to speak to others who are waking up, or who desire to wake up. Because we can't do this alone.
