I Don’t Want to Hate Mornings Anymore

  1. Rough. I hate mornings too, but here I am complaining about waking up at 7am. I could never be happy waking up everyday at 4am so good on you for getting this far.

    The worst part about waking up early is being tired and being rushed. This may sound unreasonable but you could try going to bed a bit earlier and getting up a bit earlier and taking a little time to wake up and enjoy your morning before you get ready. Maybe have a coffee or a small, quick breakfast before you shower.

    A suggestion with the whole alarm clock thing. Do not have your alarm clock on your night stand – have it across the room on your dresser. That way you are forced to physically get out of bed to turn it off. Once you do, DO NOT LAY BACK DOWN! Maybe sit down on your bed and allow yourself to wake up slowly before you stand up and make your coffee – and then do that relaxing thing I mentioned previously, before you jump in the shower.

    When it comes to your breakfast and lunch – make it the night before. A lot of the time I’ll make my lunch for the next day while I’m cooking dinner. Sometimes I just make extra dinner and pack it in a container for the morning. That will eliminate that step entirely from your morning routine, simply open the fridge and put it in your bag.

    You can do the same for your outfit – have it picked out the night before – even throw it in the dryer the night before so all you have to do is press “start” before you hit the shower – step out of the shower and put your nice warm clothes right on! How lovely does that sound!

    The morning is the most important part of your day because it sets the tone for what’s to come of the hours ahead. You don’t want to start your day sad and feeling deflated or disappointed in yourself. Just make small strides to make your life easier.

    I hope my tips will help you and I hope you’re doing well with your goals you set for yourself! I’d love to know if your morning routine has improved since writing this!
