So you want to wake up early every single day? It isn’t going to be easy, but trust me, you will feel so good when you are up at 6 am and you can spend the hours doing whatever your heart desires. Normally, I am the only one awake early in the morning so I’m able to meditate, read, or listen to my affirmations. I tried waking up early for years, but for the past 7 months, I’ve been able to wake up really early. Some days I wake up at 5:45 am! You will be able to wake up early too after reading the following tips.
1. Have a really delicious breakfast planned the night before
I don’t know about you guys, but one of my favorite parts about the morning is breakfast. When I go to sleep thinking about my avocado toast with tomatoes & balsamic glaze, I am more likely to not hit the snooze button.
2. Go to bed earlier
Now, I know this might be an obvious tip, but I figured that I would include it. I go to bed at 9 pm-10 pm every single day. It allows me to feel more rested when I wake up in the morning. Honestly, nothing good tends to happen late at night. So, you mine as well just get to bed early.
3. Have A Reason For Waking Up
Do you want to spend some time on self-improvement? Do you want to have time to make a delicious breakfast & not rush? Do you want to be able to work out in the morning? You need to have a purpose for waking up early. If you don’t, then you are more likely to keep sleeping.
4. Set More Than One Alarm
Sometimes I’ll set an alarm for 5:45 and then 6:00 am. I feel like I am able to still “sleep in” a little bit in between 5:45 and 6:00 am. If it takes 3 or 4 alarms to get you to wake up early then set them. It may be the extra push you need to get out of bed.
5. Prepare For The Morning The Night Before
If you are planning to work out then have your workout clothes ready for the night before. If you want to wake up and read then have your book next to your bedside. You’ll go to bed motivated to accomplish the task in the morning.
