I am a early raiser for multiple reasons. I love to wake up early set myself up for success. Whether I am going to work or kicking off the day at home with my family.
To me it’s a huge win when I am prompted and ready for the day. This sets up on a positive start for the day!
On a normal work day I beat the traffic, get in early in the office read my all emails and plan for the day.
On a day home, I’d like to have a day plan. If you have children, you know how it is when children are bored they start their own chaotic plan.
So many people ask me how do I do it?
Well I have 5 tips to help you get started:
1. Give your body some time to gently awaken
Yes, I am guilty of snoozing my alarm so that why I always set my alarm 10 minutes ahead.
2. Wake up with a purpose
I have a dog, I usually like to get a walk in before I leave her home. Morning walks are a must for us.
3. Listening to relaxing piano music
I play music every morning to wake up my mind and soul. I try to create a relaxing and positive environment while I do my morning stretches.
Here is my favorite Relaxing Piano Music
4. Be realistic
It’s so important that you plan go to bed early, if you plan to get up by 5 AM go to bed by 9 PM – more to come on how to go to bed early on my next blog
5. Create a morning route
After snoozing my alarm and start my music for the day:
- I start the day with morning stretches
- I dress for the morning walk with the dog
- I’ve gotta have my morning tea
- Get ready for the day and leave to work
What helps you get up in early in the mornings?
