Developing a Morning Routine & Sticking to It

I have struggled for months to develop and carry out a consistent morning routine. My biggest challenge is waking up without hitting snooze 5 times. Still I am determined to take advantage of the early hours and become a morning person. Therefore this week I am challenging myself once again to wake up early and create a consistant morning routine. My goal is too wake up at 6:45am and I will use these three tips I came across in various audiobooks/podcasts  to try to make it happen…

  1. Putting your phone on the other side of the room so you have to get out of bed to turn off the alarm and further chanting to yourself as you walk across the room “I’m Up, I’m Up” so you do not run right back to bed.
  2. Have your morning routine pre determined and posted/written down so you know exactly what you need to do.
  3. Make an early morning commitment to create a stronger reason to wake up so early… I asked my brother to be my running buddy this week and made going for a jog the first step in my routine.

I really hope these tips do the trick!! Wish me luck!
