You Snooze, You Lose!

Becoming a morning person might seem like an impossible task, but it’s actually not as hard as you might think. If you envy your friends or family members that seem to wake up at impossible times and always seem to get more work done than you, then you might be motivated enough to try and change your morning routine. Sadly, it’s hard to do so without a guide or some help to teach you the basics of being a morning person—a guide such as this one!




No more snoozing


Get rid of those snooze alarms right now! Disable them completely or get an alarm clock that actually helps to wake you up, not tease you into sleeping a couple of extra minutes. Think of what you could do in five minutes. You could brush your teeth, wash your face, go toilet, brew a fresh cup of coffee or even get changed. Now think about how many times you hit that snooze button. Once, twice, three times the charm? That’s roughly 15 minutes of extra snoozing—but you still feel tired, right? So what was the point of snoozing anyway? Get out of bed, use those 15 minutes productively and you’ll feel much better about yourself and less groggy. Get up and lose the snooze button!


Treat yourself in the morning


No, this doesn’t mean stuff your face with chocolates and ice cream as a reward for waking up on time. There are simple pleasures in the morning that you can indulge in, such as a freshly brewed cup of coffee that you ground yourself. Not sure on how to make the perfect coffee? You can learn more by searching up guides, looking up appliances and practising. The best thing about most coffee machines is that they can continue running even if you’re in the shower or getting ready for work, meaning as soon as you’re finished with your morning routine you’ll have a fresh cup of coffee waiting for you!


Morning fitness


If you want to get into a fitness routine then nothing’s better than going out for a run in the morning when the roads are clear and there’s no one to eye you in your spandex clothes. It’s even better if you can convince a friend or family member to run with you run with you in the mornings so that you can reach your fitness goals together. Going for a run in the morning is also an excellent way to wake yourself up and get your blood flowing and mind awake. End your morning workout with a healthy energy-filled breakfast such as oatmeal and you’re ready to start your day.


Find a reason to get up early

If you don’t have to wake up early then why should you? There has to be a reason why you would want to wake up earlier. Perhaps you want to get more hours out of the day, maybe your partner or friends are concerned you’re sleeping too much, or perhaps you want to cut midnight cravings by sleeping earlier and thus, waking up earlier as well. Whatever your reasons are, stick to them and find motivation in changing your sleeping routine.
