The rays slowly seep through the curtains, falling on your face. Your eyes flutter lightly as dawn attempts to awaken you, along with the phone alarm next to the bed. You will have two reactions to this awakening, depending on who you are.

The first is a deep moan, a quick attempt to put the alarm off, and covering your face with the blankets to shut the light out. The second superheroes of our story smile serenely as the light touches their face, gently sit up and turn their alarm off. Looking around their room, they feel energized and ready to start the new day.

While these individuals may be a bit annoying to many, their methods have proven helpful. Starting their day on a positive and motivational note not only helps them be more productive and happy on those specific days but leads to more remarkable achievements in the long term.
