Morning: How to make time: A manifesto


About the Book

‘For years now I have been getting up by 5am in winter (and I am just as happy at 4am in summer). It suits me. I like the energy, the awareness before the day wakes. The quiet before dawn in winter, the shift from night to day in summer. I get things done. I garden in soft light. It is my best time of day’

This is a manifesto for morning.

There is an energy in the earlier hours, an awareness that Allan Jenkins enjoys. In the modern world we tend to get up as late as we can before we have to leave. But we don't have to chase the day.

In Morning, Allan shows how waking earlier even once a week or month can free us to be more creative, to read, to walk, to think. He talks to other early risers such as Jamie Oliver and Meera Sodha, poets and painters. He interviews a neuroscientist about sleep, an ornithologist about song, a philosopher and a fisherman about light. He gets up early, he listens, he looks. He introduces us to his secret world.

It is a celebration of dawn and morning: the best time of day.
