Ah yes, the morning! The AM! Once you have discovered it, you will become a totally new person! ( Well that's not strictly true but to an extent, YES) First, a bit of background information- I have always been a morning person, an early bird that catches the worm, or whatever the stupid saying is! It completely flummoxes me that people can stay in bed till noon, being a child, teenager and most likely adult that is awake by 7:00 o'clock each morning without fail, its a mystery to me how people can waste such a valuable part of the day.
Admittedly I am asleep by 10 each night, like a total granny and do find myself slumping about at 7;00 pm, but I got all my work done in the morning, so its okay! Here are my tips, for if you want to become a morning person and discover the beautiful AM.
#1 DON'T USE YOUR PHONE AS A ALARM CLOCK
Luckily, my body clock and I, we are best friends- she always knows to wake me up at 7 on the dot however if your sleeping pattern is not top notch then you need to relie on something to wake you up. Phones are wonderful things because they can do so much these days, but being an alarm clock is not one of them! Firstly, if your phone is on during the night, you are more inclined to look at it if you wake up and check for any essential 2am twitter updates, then before you know it, its 6pm,you need to be up in an hour and you have spent the last 2 hours looking at cat GIFS. Secondly, you will set multiple alarms, so your brain knows when the last one is! You don't want this, instead pay a cheeky trip to homesense and pick up an old fashioned one, like in the picture above.
#2 READ WHEN YOU WAKE UP
Reading is fast becoming one of my favourite things to do ( beside blogging of course) I love reading in the morning, especially if its a good book. It gets your brain awake and ready to GO GO GO! But for heaven sake pick a good book, don't pick a morbid, depressing book, because that won't put you in the best of moods!
#3 LISTEN TO MUSIC
Listening to music, especially happy, cheerful songs can really be a mood changer. They can make you feel awake, alert and like you can conquer the world. I love listening to the radio when I am browsing social media etc. It Really puts me in a good mood for the rest of the day, well until something bad happens.
#4 LEAVE YOURSELF ENOUGH TIME
Normally, what makes people hate the mornings is bad past experience. Not having enough time, so they become stressed and tried, when trying to do everything! Forget it! Find out what time you need to leave the house, and give yourself some extra ' me' time. I know that I love taking my time over my makeup and hair in the morning and get
a bit very stressed when I don't have enough time! This way you can enjoy getting ready and not hate the mornings.
Thats it for this post, I randomly only have 4 points but I guessed you guys wouldn't want to hear that you need a good breakfast, good night sleep etc. because I bet you have heard that ever since the start of secondary school!
