I guess this post is a little unfair of me because I’m naturally~ a morning person, but I realize that a lot of people are not. Unfortunately for you night owls, the American working society kind of forces you to become morning people so might as well embrace it for what it’s worth vs. dreading getting out of bed (which morning people sometimes hate too, believe it or not).
There are a lot of articles out there on “how to become a morning person,” and I can guarantee that they probably go a little something like this:
- Don’t hit snooze & get out of bed immediately.
- Spend 15 minutes stretching/doing yoga/bullet journaling/some other thing you probably don’t have time for.
- Eat a hearty, full breakfast that you most likely don’t want to make/will make you late.
Listen. Even as a morning person, I’m calling bullsh*t on all the “morning person” articles. No one in their right might can JUMP out of bed as soon as their alarm goes off (I certainly can’t) nor does the normal human being have the time/energy to do like 15 different activities AND get ready for work AND cook a full breakfast every morning. I’m all for taking back your mornings (once in a while & in an enjoyable way!), but for everyday, routine mornings here are some realistic suggestions on how to become more of a morning person.
when in doubt, just drink coffee
