【Oh爸媽:寄宿學校攻略】晨形人是怎樣煉成的
最近有段網絡熱傳的新聞記錄片,講述所謂的「晨形人」,即是比一般人早起身start a new day的一種人。晨形人每天朝早五點未夠,太陽都未出的時候就起身。落街跑步、煮早餐、送仔仔返學、睇報紙,臨出門口返工還是八點未夠。一星期還有一次六點鐘的business meeting跟其他創業者或生意人交流。節目其中一位晨形人Belinda,是一位生意人。
 
節目播出街旋即引起激烈討論,話晨形人離地,話打工仔的生活時鐘要早睡早起是不可能的,更莫說早一個鐘返公司……早在我十幾年前讀書時就經歷過了。
 
如果大家還記得早前農夫玩轉英國寄宿校那個節目,相信都對陸永游早水的那幕好有印象。對呀,就算天氣幾凍,每星期都有一日要五點幾起身落泳池游水,我自己都經歷過,確實很辛苦。
 
早起身,對於現代都市人來說是好可怕的。前一晚已經OT到八點,返到屋企食埋飯十點,唔睇電視、唔上Facebook唔打機,即刻去瞓,晚餐還未落格。我不否認比平常早兩三小時起床,當天的時間的確比較好用。感覺全世界都在on your mark, get set的時候你已經go了,跑快人幾個身位。但我心目中的「晨形人」,反而是另一種。
 
相信人生在世其中一樣最大敵人就是早起身。尤其在冬天時候,床鋪暖笠笠,總想瞓多陣,五分鐘都好。一想到每星期總有一天要五點鐘凍冰冰怕起身,還要去泳池,前一晚總是非常忐忑。要有勇氣五點鐘起身,真是少一點毅力(grit)也不行。
 
而英國學校將「晨形」的practice做得好,因為一星期只有一天要早起,其他時間可以休息多一點。但其實這樣更辛苦,正因為一星期只有一天,你永遠都不會習慣早起身,永遠都會因為知道明天要做晨形人想喊。
 
而這邊廂在香港,晨形人似乎因為日日如是,而早就將早起的痛苦變成習慣。時間多了,但Grit卻沒怎麼培養到。等於一條橡筋長期拉緊,也會漸變得鬆。
 
所以晨形人的背後,還得看看你想得到的是甚麼。如果是爭取時間的話,早起身的確有用,卻同時反映一日24小時真的不夠香港人用……
 
不過如果你想要的是Grit,可以學習英國人的方式,一星期只早起一兩天。
