How to become a morning person
I am not a morning person. I am probably the worst at being a morning person.
You might be wondering how a '' not morning person '' can give you any tips on this topic. well, throughout the years I've been learning a few things that have really helped me be happier in the mornings, so i thought i'd share them with everyone else who struggles with mornings just as much as i do!
Waking up to natural light: I haven't been doing this for a very long time yet, but i wish i had realised how amazing this is sooner. I've noticed the biggest difference since i started leaving my blinds open and letting natural light get into my room. I don't wake up to a boring dark room, instead i see the blue sky when i open my eyes and honestly that just makes me very happy.
Get everything done the night before: I love sleeping, and we all know that being a student means you don't get as much sleep as you would want to. So to make up for this i like to do as many things as i can the night before, like choose my outfit, get my bag ready for class... doing this i get little more sleep in the mornings.
Be excited about something: Getting up is a lot harder if you know that you have to go to class, study, or do something you don't enjoy. So being excited about something, even if it is a little thing like something tasty i am going to have for breakfast or a new lipstick i'm going to try, makes me want to get up and do it, instead of staying in bed and then end up running late.
Have a relaxed morning routine: There's nothing i hate more than rushing in the morning, it puts me in a very bad mood. I like to take my time and do things calmly in the morning, which is a struggle as i love having my beauty sleep too ( which is very much needed ). So as i mentioned before, getting everything done before bed is the best thing to do, it saves so much time in the morning, which you can use to sleep a little more or to perfect that winged eyeliner ( we all know how difficult it is to make both eyes look the same! )
Alarm: Who doesn't hate that annoying noise that wakes you up every moring,?, that beep beep beep, it's terrible. Wouldn't it be better to wake up to your favourite song playing? Listening to my favourite song makes me happy, so waking up to makes me not hate mornings too much aha
Yes, this does have a downside to it, you could end up hating your favourite song, but oh well.. We all get tired of our favourite songs eventually, don't we?
What is something you do every morning that makes you happy ?
