How to Become a Morning Person

By , June 21, 2013

For some of us, morning is just not a good time. Don’t talk to me, don’t look at me, don’t anything – it’s too early!

But what if there was a way to change all that and stop being a grouch every morning? We’re not saying they will all be easy, but they will work:


One of the easiest ways to become a morning person is routine – that means waking up at the same time every morning, unfortunately that includes weekends…yikes! But if you go to sleep at the same time and wake up at the same time every morning your body will eventually expect to feel tired or awake around those times.

Think of it this way – eventually you won’t mind about the weekends, because you’ll be a morning person, it’s a win win situation… eventually.

Soothing, Fun Sounds

Nothing puts you in a worse mood than that shrieking beep of the alarm clock, it’s safe to say most people associate it with misery. So ditch the beeps, blares and blasts for something fun, energetic and happier.

Skip the Snooze

While you might think hitting the snooze button is helping you wake up gradually, it actually disrupts our sleep cycle and leaves us feeling even more tired than we would be if we had just got up in the first place. Feeling more tired = feeling more cranky.

Get Up and At It

We know, we know… you’re only up and you’re in no mood to do exercise and get your pulse racing. But even just a few jumping jacks shortly after you get up will boost your metabolism and leave you feeling energetic and refreshed.

Eat a Good Breakfast

Eat a healthy, well balanced breakfast to give you energy and get your metabolism rolling. Feeling energetic will leave you feeling happier and more prepared to tackle the day ahead.

Start the Day the Right Way

After you’ve gotten your short burst of exercise in, start your day off with activity or something you love. This will elevate your mood leaving you feeling happier for the day ahead.

If you can face it, an intense morning workout will definitely improve your mood by releasing endorphins and leaving you feel refreshed and energised.

It’s not going to be an easy road for the first while, but it won’t be long before you’re up singing along with the birds, give it a go!
