It’s no secret that mornings can be tough. Pealing yourself away from your warm comforter as the sun rises is no easy feat, however, getting a jump start on your day will have you feeling accomplished and satisfied all before noon. If you’re looking to become an early riser, here are a few tips to help you get started from LPC.

Go Outside Early in the Day

When you wake up and move directly to the couch, it can feel tempting to lay your head and go right back to sleep. Instead, prepare your favorite morning beverage, put it in a thermos, and treat yourself to a morning walk. Feeling the sun and fresh air will energize you first thing. If you don’t have time for a walk, utilize a private patio or balcony in your Lincoln apartment to welcome the day.

Set Yourself up For Success

One reason why it’s common to hit the snooze button is because the day ahead may feel daunting. To avoid this feeling of dread and procrastination, set yourself up for success so it’s easy to get started on your tasks. Plan your outfit, pack your bag, and make sure your apartment is clean before you fall asleep. If you’re working out, lay a yoga mat down the night before or pull your sneakers out of the closet to get yourself prepped for a morning run.

Limit Blue Light at Bedtime

It’s no secret that technology can have a negative impact on our sleep cycles. Staring at a bright phone screen before going to bed can delay not only how fast it takes you to fall asleep but also the quality of sleep. We recommend placing your phone in a drawer and investing in a digital alarm clock. You can use this time before bed as a chance to catch up on some reading and escape from the digital world for a bit.
