National Early Birds Day

By Avalon Kelly

Happy National Early Birds Day!  In our bustling world, one can easily forget to take the time to pause and rest.  Often, I feel like I spend every waking moment rushing from one task to another.  National Early Birds Day would inspire everyone to wake up slowly and enjoy the moment.  Set the alarm for 5:30; get ready slowly; take a walk; watch the sunrise; drink coffee with friends; journal; read.  Waking up early allows us to start our day by doing the things that we love.  To me, it is a time to remember how beautiful life is.  On National Early Birds Day, we could all sacrifice just a little bit of sleep to experience the joy that comes with waking up early.
