How to Become a Morning Person


I've always liked getting up early. There's something about relaxing early in the morning before starting my day that puts me in a great mood. Personally, I'm not a fan of rolling out of bed and logging onto my classes because I'm not as focused and awake, so if you're like me, here are some tips to help you start becoming a morning person.

Prep the Night Before

Nothing is going to make you feel more stressed out in the morning than having to run around and get yourself ready for the day. It already takes enough time to work out, get dressed, and get ready for classes, so setting yourself up for success the night before will make your mornings run smoother. 

Spend some time laying out your clothes, preparing your breakfast or lunch, setting your desk up, or packing your backpack to give yourself a leg up in the morning. Even if it's just doing one thing to prepare for the morning, it's still one less thing for you to worry about the next morning. 

Create a Morning Routine You Love

Making sure you actually enjoy your morning routine is the best way to ensure you'll actually stick by it. If you're not someone who likes to workout first thing in the morning, don't force yourself to do it just because a lot of other people do. If you'd rather make a cup of coffee and read a little bit first, do that instead. Your morning routine is yours to create, so make sure to 

Get Enough Sleep

Yes, this feels like a no-brainer, but, hey, it's easier said than done. I'm personally trying to get into a habit of not falling asleep while looking at my phone because it's not good for your sleep routine. Trying to get in your eight hours of sleep will make it easier for you to wake up in the morning. 

Another great tip to get a good night's sleep is to go to sleep when you're tired. Keeping yourself awake isn't going to help you in the long run, so it's better to listen to your body. Of course, there's some times where that doesn't work out because of other circumstances, but trying to go to sleep when you first get tired is a good habit to have. 

Eat Something

Once again, this may feel a bit obvious, but remember that old saying: breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Give yourself the energy you need, even if you're in a rush and can only fit in an apple or a granola bar. You'll thank yourself in the long run and you won't feel as groggy later in the morning. 

I've really learned to value a good breakfast in the morning. I think it's important to set myself up for success early in the morning, so I always try to make myself an actual breakfast that I can sit down and eat. I try not to do anything work while I'm eating (although that sometimes happens) so I can focus on one thing at a time.
