How to be a ‘morning’ person

There are lots of articles circulating the internet about the many benefits of waking up early. But how many of us actually do it? For a lot of us even the thought of having to get out of bed (especially in winter) seems like a task in its self but here are some ways to help you get yourself up and ready for the day.

As simple as it sounds, don’t hit snooze! It’s A LOT easier said than done but it’ll make a big difference. Try leaving your phone just out of reach so that you have to get up to turn it off. There’s nothing like the irritating, continuous noise of your alarm to get your right out of bed ?.

Make a morning schedule. It’s easier to get into your routine when you wake up knowing what you need to do. Get up at the same time every day, eat at the same time every day, let your body get into a routine. It’ll be hard at first, but it will get easier.

Even though you’ve heard it all before … EXERCISE. Even if it’s just a small home workout, get it done! Not only does it help your body wake up but it means when you get home from that long day at work it’s already over and done with.

Start your day with a positive mental attitude. No one likes Mondays but try to find small positive things about your day that will make waking up a lot easier. Maybe it seeing your friends after work? Or maybe you have a nice lunch today. It’s the little things that make a big difference.
