If you identify as a ‘morning person’, this post arguably will not be of interest to you. If you fail to identify as a ‘morning person’, however, please continue reading in hopes of designating some techniques and ticks you may make use of in order to potentially enhance the overall concept of mornings.
Mornings tend to be disliked by individuals because it requires exiting your bed. If you’re like me and could easily remain cocooned in your sheets and blankets for the rest of your life without hesitation, consider purchasing an alarm clock that forces you to get out of bed. If you’re a heavy sleeper, perhaps set more than one alarm clock, and place it in an area of your room that requires you leaving your bed to turn it off. If you tend to climb back into bed after you’ve hit ‘snooze’ on your alarm, try doing some simple exercises to get your juices flowing. Chances are you’re less likely to get back into your bed and sleep if your blood is hot and pumping.
Something I like doing is setting my clothes out at night for the following day. This saves me time in the morning and prevents a potential meltdown, and this technique can be used for a variety of purposes, for example preparing your breakfast the night before or even something as simple as showering the night before. These strategies sound simple and rather obvious, but they really do save significant time once the sun rises.
Try and plan your morning to allow you to look forward to things once you wake up, for example a tasty breakfast, a walk with your pup or even some stretching. If you have something enjoyable that takes place in your morning routine, chances are it will be a little more bearable to leave your bed.
