If You Snooze Ya Lose: 5 tips to become a morning personJuly 31, 2018
Being able to wake up in the morning feeling refreshed and awake has always been a goal. This year we’re taking a real stab at it with these 7 tips
Go to bed earlier
This may seem like a no brainer but it is realistically the hardest. It’s hard to stop looking at your phone late night but anything you look at will still be there in the morning. Going to bed earlier, will make it easier to wake up earlier.
Eat a healthy breakfast
A filling, healthy breakfast is key to feeling energized and awake in the morning. As much as we think just a cup of coffee will do it, it won’t. Go for something with protein that includes some fresh fruit or vegetables.
Wake up a little earlier each day
Waking up earlier is not just going to happen overnight or even over a week. The best thing to do is try to wake up 10 minutes earlier each day. Set up your alarm so its goes off 15 minutes before you actually want to be out of bed. That will still allow you to snooze but you’ll still be getting up earlier.
Keep the same schedule
Try to keep the same sleeping schedule all week, even on weekends! Sleeping in messes up your body’s inner clock and thus will make it harder for you to get up during the week
If you have something to look forward to it will be easier to get out of bed. Reward yourself with a special treat like a nice latte from your favorite coffee shop or watching an extra episode of your fave show.
