9:00pm (the night before): “Tomorrow is going to be my day. I am going to reclaim the morning, get up early, go for a run, actually eat a healthy breakfast, and even get to work early. Tomorrow will be great.”
4:30am (the next day, as the alarm goes off): “Sshhhh. I’ll just skip breakfast.”
5:30am: “Oops, there goes the run.”
7:00am: “Ah, darn it.”
If you haven’t had an internal debate like that with yourself about getting up in the morning, then you are a super human. A super human whom the ordinary person like us can only look at and wonder, ‘how?’
Whether it’s a new job with a longer commute, kids who get up earlier or finding time to exercise, most of us are pushed to set our alarms earlier and earlier.
Although we can see the benefits of becoming an early riser, it is too easy to hit snooze on the alarm.
Rather than telling yourself, “I’m just a night owl” or “I’ll never be able to do that”, we have some of the best tips to change your morning habits.
