Becoming a morning person

Before I went to university I was a complete morning person. Always up and out of bed before 7 normally. Then University ruined all that. I was lucky if I ever saw the morning. And even since then until a few months ago even if I woke up early I struggled to get out of bed at an early time. But the last few months I’ve been so motivated and getting up early, even getting out of bed early and doing work early. So here are just a few things I’ve been doing to start being a morning person.

Get up at the same time everyday

Now I can’t say I’m perfect at this one, but I try my best. Most days I try and wake up at around 7 and be out of bed for about half past. I sometimes lie in from time to time but waking up and getting up at the same time everyday makes it so much easier over time to be a morning person.

Have something to look forward to when you wake up

This could be waking up and having your coffee or working out depending on what you enjoy doing. Or it could be having plans for the evening and knowing as soon as you have your work done you can see friends, go for dinner, do activities you love. Stop waiting for Friday’s to start enjoying life. Make sure everyday is enjoyable.

Have a better night time routine

Going to bed earlier, not looking at electronics before you go to bed both are good ways of making sure you’ll feel better in the morning. Try and give yourself half an hour or so before you go to bed to just wind down and get yourself ready for bed. Create a calm experience for yourself before you go to sleep and over time your body will get used to it and know when it’s time to sleep and shut down.

So they’re just a few things I do to try be a morning person.

    I’ve recently been waking up early each morning and I have to say, the beginning was so hard for me. Your body really does adjust once you do it often enough which is amazing for me! Thank you for the useful tips xx

    I love this post, I use to hate getting up the morning but since i’ve got older I love it. I love being more productive and I definitely angry having a ‘bedtime routine’ definitely helps and has positive effect s on how I feel!!

    Can I just say being a morning person is overrated? I’m soo lazy???. If it isn’t a school day, I wake up around 12 am or even later. It’s a terrible habit.

      I love being a morning person. Makes me be so much more productive throughout the day

      • October 24, 2017 / 6:14 pm

        Lol. I’m never productive. I spend my days

        • October 24, 2017 / 6:15 pm

          * My free days watching movies and reading novels. I should probably start trying to embody a spirit of productiveness. It will help me later.

    I’m the absolute worst at waking up on a morning. I have to wake up at the same time for work, go to bed at the same time and read for a little. And still can’t manage to wake up in a good mood.?

      I used to be terrible at getting up early and now I love it. It is so much easier when you get into a routine and get up and go to bed at the same time.

    When I don’t need to be a morning person, I am not but when I do not to, then I am just fine. I think it is just all about habits and as you said, a good routine! xx corinne
