Why we’re better off with fewer friends
I realized this about 2 years ago and started deleting and sorting "Facebook friends", in order to only see what I really want to see in my feed and also to be able to occasionally share stuff with people who I actually want to be able to see that stuff.
This active process of minimizing my "friendships" took place in real life as well but rather unintended. Even though I've never been interested in relationships based on popularity and other superficialities, I used to have a bigger "circle", which I minimized to it's reliable and worthy core. At the same time though, I find it important to interact with people of all kind, because it makes life way more interesting.
I feel quite the same about those first hours of the day and enjoy getting my workout done as early as possible and having a nice post workout breakfast along with a cup of coffee afterwards.
Yet, the hardest part, at least for me, of accomplishing this, is the actual process of getting up instead of "accidentally" falling asleep again.
