How To Become A Morning Person

All right, night you wanna become a morning person, eh? Here are a few things you can try to wake up and stay up — it's easier than you think!

1. Have a positive attitude!

Being a morning person takes dedication. You need to have a positive attitude going into this, or it will be useless, and you'll give up quickly.

2. Practice consistency. Try to wake up at the same time every day, including weekends.

Resist the urge to snooze! After a week or two of waking up at the same time each day, it will become a lot easier.

3. Buy a whole bunch of alarm clocks, bro!

Why not?? You've got big goals, so you need an army of alarm clocks to wake you up.

4. Have someone hide one of those alarm clocks somewhere in your apartment!

Sure, that may be a cat, but just imagine it were an alarm clock! You'd be like, "Whaaaaat!! What's the ALARM CLOCK doing in this POT on the STOVE??" And guess what? You'd be out of bed sipping coffee by the time you found it and turned it off.

5. Program a coffeemaker to start brewing at 7 a.m. or whenever you'd like to start your day.

The smell of coffee and just knowing that you've got a fresh cup waiting for you is a great morning motivator. But don't spill it like this goofy guy! Haha, oops!

6. Don't get drunk before bed, dude! Sure it's fun, but you shouldn't!

You'll wake up dehydrated, tired, and you'll probably wake up a bunch to pee in the middle of the night.

7. Don't eat like garbage, tempting though it may be.

Eating garbage food makes you feel like garbage. It can make you tired, sluggish, and groggy — all things you don't want to feel if you're trying to be the early bird.

8. Exercise (at least somewhat) regularly...

Exercise makes you healthy. A healthy body sleeps better. That's just science talking, bud!

9. ...especially in the morning!

Exercising in the morning may sound daunting at first, but it's GREAT. By exercising in the morning, you eliminate the possibility of being too tired to hit the gym after work.

10. Stretch before bed.

You'll go to sleep feeling relaxed, loose, and ready just to pass out. And when you sleep well, waking up is easier.

11. If a morning run isn't your thing, try hopping in the shower. You'll perk up and smell good at the same time! Wow!

12. Purchase a rooster!

Before the internet, these little critters were responsible for getting you out of bed! Ask your parents — they definitely had roosters.

13. Let the light in. If you have blinds, leave them open so the morning sun can say "hello there, dude!"

14. Maybe just give up on sleeping altogether!*

Because who needs sleep? Overrated.

So do you think you can cut it as a morning person, or will you forever be a night owl?
