“Are some of you snoozing your alarms for a few minutes every day, before waking up?”
That was how Vikas started one of our recent Pranayama classes.
And I was thinking: “How in the world did he know about my alarm snoozing habit??”
Vikas continued: “You are in the 5 AM club. Think in abundance. If you want to sleep more, sleep for another 2 hours. Don’t snooze for another few minutes.”
And his final point nailed the idea for me: “If you have the money to regularly dine at a 5-star restaurant, why would you negotiate for a few rupees with the local vegetable vendor? Think in abundance.”
If we already have the discipline to attend a 5 AM Pranayama class regularly, we could (should!) also train our minds to think much bigger.
Abundance is the feeling of richness in every facet of our lives.
And we create that feeling by building a habit of constantly thinking big in every area of our lives: Whether that’s our health, wealth, relationships, work, enjoyment, charity, and yes even…sleep.

We’re creatures of habit. The more good habits we can weave into our day-to-day lives, the better we can shape our own destiny.
