Dave spent the last 14 years waking up Sacramento. Before that, Dave's done time in New York, Philly, Minneapolis, Denver, DC and...Is this boy on the lam or what? Now, he's shuffled down the Valley to start things up with all that great soft rock and the most fun you can have with your radio on. Turn it on first thing every day to join in. You never can tell what'll happen on this guy's show until it happens. In fact, Dave's not really sure what just happened 'til it already did. It IS very early. Just the cows and Dave up at this hour. Come on, belly up to our breakfast table. It's always a good time!
I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon and grew up with hippie parents that sold my brother and sister to the Gypsies and we lived in a VW Van - o.k. KIDDING! My husband Craig and I love to eat, camp, fish, eat, watch t.v., go to movies, eat, BBQ, hang out with friends, and did I say eat? We love to travel and we enjoy meeting new people and trying new things! It seems we are always trying to eat healthier and get active - I want to come to terms with fact I will never get back to my original weight - let's face it 7lbs and 6oz is not very realistic. Wake up with Dave and I and we'll have fun in the mornings and then spend your workday with me - I promise I will help make it go by faster with all of your favorite Soft Rock Music!
1. Set aside a full hour in the evening to unwind. Pretend you have one less hour than you actually do each night. We tend to overestimate how much we can fit into at nignt and we can end up staying up past our bedtime. BAD!
2. Don't close your blinds before bedtime. Leave 'em open then you'll get natural morning light to wake you up the next day. And for winter mornings, try one of those artificial light-emitting boxes that act as a nice bright alarm clock.
3. Reward yourself for getting up. Get up just 15 minutes early and you can ease into the new day...reading the paper, logging on to Facebook or, guys, catching up with a few minutes of "Sportcenter." Then you won't feel so out of it when you rush out the door.
4. Exercise early. This is a tough one for those of us that get up crazy early (ie. 3am). I'm more of a 6pm than a 6am guy myself (or 3am in my case). But if you can get out for that power walk before breakfast, you're way ahead of the game.
Oh, and P.S. Listen to Dave and Teri Ann each morning on Soft Rock 98.9 if you can. It'll make you a much better person. And besides, you KNOW it's the right thing to do. (photo from smashmaterials.com)
