Bella Ella Boutique – 5 Tips on Becoming A Morning Person
If there is anyone that is not a morning person it is me. I was made for nights. I have zero problem staying up all night and working on things, but I have a big problem when it comes to waking up in the morning, even if I got a full nights rest. Starting a full time job has forced me to get into a good routine of going to bed earlier and getting up earlier, but it hasn’t been the easiest. Here are 5 of my best tips on becoming a morning person (i’m not 100% a morning person yet, but these few tips have definitely helped me get close!)
- Go to bed earlier. Duh. This one should be common sense. But this one was actually really hard for me to do. Forcing yourself to go to bed earlier is such a huge help. And after waking up early a few days in a row, trust me, you’ll want to be in bed by 9:30.
- Plan an exciting breakfast. Or an exciting lunch at work or wherever. Food is definitely one thing that can get me out of bed early.
- Layout a favorite outfit the night before. I do this all the time, especially when I get new clothes! I plan a cute outfit out the night before, and I actually get excited to wake up and get ready in the mornings!
- Set your alarm to something fun. I don’t really know why, but this one is super big for me!! I set my morning alarms to my favorite songs, and somehow, it makes waking up just a tiny bit easier.
- Instead of snoozing your alarm, use that time to reward yourself. I’m all about this one. There are days where I wake up and check all of my social media accounts for the day as my “reward”. Some days, instead of snoozing my alarm, I get ready quickly and go and pick up an Acai bowl for breakfast, or a drink and a sugar cookie on my way to work. For me, this makes waking up early way easier! Treat yo’ self.
