How To Become A Morning Person
Some people simply aren’t born as a natural “morning person” (ourselves included). That said, you do have the power to change your mindset and become an early bird—though it will take practice and a positive attitude. If you’re truly up for the lifestyle adjustment, we’re sharing 5 ways to shift your outlook on waking up early and to officially become an a.m. individual.
Step 1: Go to bed early
This tip should go without saying, but set an earlier bedtime so you can wake up feeling refreshed and rested.
Step 2: Mobile Ban
Keep your cell phone and laptop out of reach (and definitely not in your bed). This will also force you to hop out of your sheets to turn your phone alarm off.
Step 3: Focusing On The Small Habits
Instead of leisurely lying around in the morning, get out of bed right when you wake up. Easier said than done, but once you get in the habit of it, you’ll see the productive benefits payoff.
Step 4: Plan Your Day
Before you go to sleep, make a mental or physical checklist prioritizing plans for the next day. This will help you visualize what you need to accomplish in the a.m and you'll kick off your day right off the bat.
Step 5: Keep It Going
The body craves consistency, so if you want to establish a long-term habit of waking up in the early morning, you need to be relatively consistent with it seven days a week.
