I’m sure you’ve heard the saying “the early bird gets the worm.” Turns out, science proves it.

That’s right. Morning people are more proactive than others. Proactive people anticipate issues, which is a beneficial trait to have in your career.

Naturally, people tend to feel more refreshed when they wake up making them more motivated and focused throughout the day. In addition, morning people are more likely to knock their to-do list items out instead of dreading them.

  • How to determine if you’re a morning person

    • Do you wake up early naturally every morning – sometimes even before your alarm?

    • Do you feel like you’re most productive in the morning and hit a wall in the afternoon?

    • Are you are irritable if you sleep in “late”?

  • Benefits of becoming a morning person

    • More productive and successful

    • Increased happiness proven by research

    • Lower BMI proven by research

    So, now the real question. . . how to become a morning person?! Say goodbye to unproductive days and hello to more checks on your daily to-do list.

Tips to become a morning person

  1. Get a good night’s sleep consistently

    Cannot stress how important this is. Sleep insomnia is a true issue for many people. It’s important to check your sleep conditions. Make sure you are sleeping on a proper mattress that meets your needs, minimize screen time before bed, and create an oasis with minimal light and noise.

  2. Make a wind down routine and stick to it

    It’s critical to go to sleep and wake up at the same time every day (even on the weekends!). Create a bedtime, yep, like when you were a kid. Try taking a bath, reading, or some light yoga to help with your wind down routine.

  3. Avoid taking long naps

    If you have to nap, make sure it is 30 minutes or less. Short naps tend to be ok, but long naps (over 30 minutes) during the day definitely will disturb your sleep at night.

  4. Skip the late afternoon caffeine fix

    It’s tempting to grab that chocolate bar or make a coffee for that 3 p.m. fix, I get it, but it is best to avoid caffeine after 3 p.m. Caffeine can last up to five or six hours definitely disturbing your sleep schedule. Yikes.

Bonus tip

Working out first thing in the morning will get your endorphins flowing and set you up for a productive day! Don’t forget to eat a healthy breakfast full of nutritional carbs and proteins to give you the energy you need to slay the day. Skipping breakfast is the worst thing you can do in the morning.

You won’t regret becoming a morning person. It’s hard to beat a feeling of marking half your to-do list off before 10 A.M.
