    How to be a morning person

    I love mornings. I love the feeling of getting my day off to a flying start, to the point where being in bed past 7:30 feels like a drastic waste of the day. I feel like I’ve finally reached a point where mornings, for me, are relatively effortless. I don’t have to drag myself out of bed and prise my eyelids open… it just happens! Here’s my tips for helping to make the most of your mornings.

    1. Get an early night.

    Perhaps the most obvious way to become a morning person, is to train your body to go to sleep earlier so that you can get up earlier. I love an early night and find nothing more satisfying than crawling into bed at the end of a long day – so for me, it’s something I look forward to and want to come earlier!

     

    1. Don’t snooze.

    When your alarm goes off at 5/6/7am, get up. The snooze button is a habit you can’t break. I reserve ‘snooze’ only for when I’ve had an especially bad nights sleep and I know I physically need more sleep. If not, it’s time to get up and go.

     

    1. Get up at the same time every day.

    I mean every day. Even weekends. Once your body is naturally in the rhythm of getting up at the same time every day, you’ll start to naturally wake up at this time. I find that most days I wake up naturally at exactly the same time, around ten minutes before my alarm is set to go off.

     

    1. Reward yourself.

    Make mornings more appealing by rewarding yourself. Once I’ve finished getting ready for the day I’ll sit down with my breakfast, coffee and catch up on my YouTube sub box before I have to get to work. Having this me time to look forward to really helps me to shift a gear first thing!

     

    1. Start your journey to enjoy mornings NOW.

    Whilst the sun is rising really early, getting up early doesn’t feel like you’re crawling out of bed in the middle of the night. Training your body to wake up earlier will feel so much easier.

     

    1. Reflect on your mornings.

    If you have a really productive morning, then you’ll feel more motivated to have more productive mornings. Take pride in mornings where you have really got sh*t done, and strive for more!

    And if all else fails, coffee isn’t a bad place to start.

    I’d love to know your tips to getting the most out of your mornings too!
