In order to truly become a morning person you have to truly want it. You have to have the urge, and there are several reasons why you should want to become one.
People who wake up at 6:00AMor earlier are more productive and simply get more sh!t done.
Now you may be thinking, 6AM? Wow, thats early. Well, if you sleep early waking up so early won’t seem like a such chore.
Finally, the rewarding feeling of waking up early and once you try it, being a morning person is enough motivation to want to continue.
Plan your day the night before
Every night before I sleep, I plan my next day in my planner. I write down everything that is important or needs to get done. I also have a “to-do” listthat I follow for the next day.
The perks of doing this, is that you will get things done.
For some people such as myself, If I write down what I have to do I get satisfaction out of crossing it off my list and feeling like I completed all that I had wanted to complete. When I get most if not everything checked or crossed off my list, I go to sleep much more happier and satisfied than if I just went with the flow for that day.
It keeps your organized, productive, and in the mindset to succeed.
Get excited about breakfast!
Every morning I get excited about my breakfast (It also happens to be my favorite meal of the day)
Sometimes I will make an egg white omelette, other days I may have a smoothie or yogurt with fruit.
This week, my personal favorite breakfast is what I liked to call my “Arugula & Egg salad”:
A handful of arugula in a wide bowl with some drizzled olive oil and parmesan cheese
2 eggs, sunny side up with crushed red pepper, salt, and parmesan cheese
Half of an avocado on top
AMP up that cardio!
I love getting my workout done in the morning, I usually wait an hour after breakfast and do about 30-60 minutes of cardio.
Go walking, running, go on an elliptical or do some HIIT
Yoga & Meditation
My “new thing” now is doing some yoga and meditation right after I wake up.
I was skeptical about it at first, but I have been wanting to do it for some time now, and I love it.
You feel very rejuvenated after yoga and meditation and refreshed.
Set time aside for something you enjoy
Whatever it is that you enjoy doing, set some time aside for it in the morning.
Whether it’s spending time with your pets, reading, watching an episode of your newest binge on Netflix, or writing a blog post.
Finally, start the rest of your day
After the rest of your morning tasks are completed get some work done! Whatever it may be.
Homework, studying, cleaning, going to work, whatever it is that is apart of your lifestyle, get to it!
