how to become a morning person

how to become a morning person {thelilyhoneylife}

 

you guys, is it just me or is it getting harder to feel alert and energized as we get older? it’s actually kind of freaking me out, but maybe it’s normal? anyways, despite the fact that it’s hard to feel awake on a pretty normal basis, it’s become pertinent to my productivity to become a morning person. and when I say “morning person”, I mean the type of person that gets up early to do things and do them without being too cranky about it. I’ve got some friends who can wake up in the cheeriest mood nearly every day, and I wish I was one of them. in fact, the t-shirt I’m wearing right now says “I’m sorry for the things I said when you woke me up”. yeah, it’s bad. BUT, I’m proud to say that I’ve officially become a morning person in my own definition! there’s a couple ways I make this happen, but first I must tell you why becoming a morning person is something you should try to do yourself.

 

Steve Jobs use to wake up at ungodly hours each morning to get started on work. he woke each morning with purpose and with a determination to get things done. I certainly didn’t know him personally, but we’ve got to assume that he was not Cheery Chip each morning when he arose. but, he did it, day in and day out, getting shit done and creating awesome stuff. over the last 6 years of my career, I’ve gotten busier and busier with work, personal obligations, and building this blog. I had two options to control the number of things I needed/wanted to get done. remove some of the commitments or find more time in the day. I choose the later and I couldn’t be happier or more pleased with that decision. my biggest realization came about 6 months ago when I was tired of feeling tired. I would resolve to wake up early each evening, only to hit snooze 7 times the next morning. to solve this habit of snoozing, I started a habit. I began going to bed at nearly the exact same time each night, and woke up at the same time each morning. at first, this was rough, but over time things improved.

 

now guess what happens on the weekends or on days off? my body wakes me up at or near the same time that I wake up on weekdays. and what time do I like to go to bed on a saturday night? the same time as a monday night! this of course does not always happen, but I try to make it as much of a habit as possible. making your sleep schedule a habit is key to getting yourself to wake up earlier each morning. decide on a time that seems suitable and work down to that time. my ideal time to wake up is 6am. this seems early for some, but honestly, it seems super normal and even a little late to me now. it is AMAZING how much I can get done when everyone else is sleeping.

 

so now that you know what the most important thing is to do to become a morning person, there are a few other tips that help me stay up-and-at-em each morning. I make rituals – each morning, I make myself a hot cup of coffee as soon as I get up. while I wait for it to brew, I open my laptop and archive any junk mail etc. then, when the coffee is ready, I give myself “news time” which is a half hour to sip coffee and catch up on what’s happening in the world. sometimes I use the time to post a social update, but I’m usually too bleary eyed for that, so I keep it simple.

 

another tactic that works very well is to lay out workout clothes the night before. I don’t workout every single morning, but I do it about 5 days a week and always always walk the dog. so, as soon as my alarm goes off, I climb out of bed and into my spandex. getting “day” clothes on helps get me ready for whatever is up next and cools my body from the warm bed. I also do the same for bedtime. an hour or so before bed, I pull my cozy sweats on and light some candles around the house. I take extra care to wash my face and put away the work clothes. the more I set the scene for a clean and cozy home, the more my brain shuts down for the evening. again, routine is key to becoming your own ideal morning person.

 

still not sure whether or not you can become a morning person? think about the one thing that you’ve been dying to get ahead on but can’t seem to find the time for. think about how much extra time you’d have in the day if you were a morning person. commit to the morning and celebrate it as time for yourself, you won’t regret it. and for goodness sake, go to bed at a decent hour as often as possible. you don’t want those undereye bags to inflate like a kiddie pool.

    appreciate you finding the time and energy to put this content together.
    I once again find myself spending way too much time both reading
    and posting comments. But so what, it was still worthwhile!

    I think that what you published made a lot of sense. But, what about this?
    what if you added a little information? I ain’t suggesting your information is
    not good., but what if you added a title that makes people
    desire more? I mean » how to become a morning personThe Lily Honey Life is kinda vanilla.
    You should glance at Yahoo’s home page and see how they
    create news headlines to get people to open the
    links. You might add a video or a related pic or two to grab people excited about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it could bring your website a little
    livelier.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell
    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
