Would you believe how many times in one week I hear, “You’re so lucky you can wake up early to workout, it’s so easy for you!” OR “I could never get up that early, I would be tired the rest of the day!”
Confession: some mornings I jump out of bed ready to face the day and others I'm a complete zombie who needs a physical push, but one thing is for sure - I feel so much better and more productive when I wake up before the rest of the family!! This is something that I still have to work on and push myself to do, but once it becomes a part of your daily routine, you don’t want to miss it! That said, here are my
TOP 5 TIPS FOR BECOMING A MORNING PERSON:
*Start your night time routine 30 minutes earlier - It’s a lot easier to get out of bed first thing in the morning when you feel well-rested!
*Move your alarm clock across the room (or check out the Wake N Shake Alarm Clock - in the App Store!) - if you’re like me, your phone is your alarm clock and you won’t want to put that across the room, so check out the Wake 'N’ Shake Alarm Clock from the app store! It’s one of my favorites that wakes you up with the alarm of your choice, but requires you to shake the phone to turn the alarm off!! A little physical activity to start the morning off right!
*Drink a full glass of water - first thing upon waking, drink a glass of water to rehydrate your body and help you feel more awake.
*Get right into your workout clothes - set your workout clothes out from the night before and get changed right away. The longer you lounge in your pjs the less likely you will feel to start your workout! If you’re just starting a new routine, or feel in a rut, try treating yourself to a few new workout outfits - a few of my favorites are from Lululemon, Gap Body, and TJ Maxx!!!
*Stick to it! - They say it takes 21 days to form a habit, so pick a time that works best for you and stick to it! Find an accountability partner or group for additional motivation!!
Are there any tips you would add to this list... Or any from the list that you plan to implement?? Remember, you have to MAKE the time!
