How do I become a morning person?
Quick two points here to make the process easier:
1. Never feel bad if you fall off your morning routine, get back to your schedule and do it the next day.
2. Get into a group of people who want to achieve the same time. It’s easy to do it with a group compared to doing it alone.
Here are some habits you can focus on that can help you become a better morning person:
Keep a gratitude journal. For five minutes each morning, write 3 things you are grateful for today.Practicing gratitude about what we have going for us can restructure our brain to focus on positive things.
Always have breakfast. If you're pressed for time, pick something s。A breakfast gives you energy and it's fuel for your brain. A great example is a combination of protein, fruits, and healthy fats (such as nuts).
Try meditating. I found that meditating early in the day, even for 10 minutes, helps to "clean" my brain of any cluttered thoughts. It's not as difficult as it sounds. With an app called Headspace you can try a guided 10 minute meditation.
Get moving. To really wake your entire body up, pick any type of physical activity. It can be a session at the gym, or it can be something shorter and even more simple: a morning yoga routine.
Make sure all ambient lighting is dim and has a low color temperature.
After you go to sleep, eschew all light if possible.
Then, leave your bedroom curtains open. This will allow natural sunlight to come in through the window, suppressing melatonin production and waking you up.
Try to expose yourself to as much sunlight as possible, as soon as possible
While you are changing, force yourself to get up in the morning, using an alarm clock if necessary.
This might seem obvious but most Americans get inadequate sleep these days. And if you're short on sleep, you'll tend to sleep late. With time, that will push you into a later and later sleep cycle.
And finally remember that people differ.
Some people seem to be morning people, some night people.
