Go away! Don’t come back any other day.
I am an awful morning person. Waking up and finding A.M. motivation is my daily hell.
That being said, I need to learn how to become a peppy morning ng person. Somehow.
I really, really, REALLY love having nights to myself, and take full advantage of the peace amd quiet (kiddo sleeping time). My problem is that I don’t get to sleep until 3:00AM a few nights a week, and then need to wake up semi-early to homeschool my son. A few days over the past few weeks, I slept until 11:00AM (bad no-no). I think my hormones are all out of whack, too, so even when I do go to sleep at a reasonable hour, I still sleep half of the day.
I don’t hear alarms (my inner she devil turns them all off before I even get a chance to hear them), and I don’t budge to sunlight or noisy surroundings.
Come August, I will be needing to wake up around 6:00AM (possibly earlier) to get my morning started right and get to school in a wide-awake state, with a hopeful, peppy, happy attitude. :)
Last night, 3:30AM was the time I finally went to sleep, and was awakened at 6:30AM, but stayed in bed (in that weird half-awake, half-asleep mode) until I rose to a vertical position at 8:30AM. Better than 11:00AM, but I need a lot of work. I definitely need to get to bed earlier tonight. 3 days ago
can’t say this is going too well, must try harder…
I get up early, then just lay in bed and lose motivation gotta change that. 3 weeks ago
mmm yeah so I woke up at 6:40 am today… I had to! darn taxes..
but I still can’t beleive I pulled myself out of bed whoa… I do feel a lil sleepy though. I’m running on a lil less than 6 hours of sleep. big jump! 1 month ago
ok so yesterday I woke up at 8:20 am! but then i went back to bed from 10 to 1:30 pm ugh
today will be different, i woke up at 930am, I plan on staying up! till midnight so that I am tired enough to have a good sleep! 1 month ago

Ok so starting friday the 15th. I am going to wake up at 7:30am from mon-sat. And I get to sleep in sun till 9am.
This is not exactly morning person but it will help me get a sleeping schedule back. I’m planing on staying up till 12pm today so that I make myself tired enough to actually sleep and not stare at the ceiling!
So Be in bed by 12:30 daily.
I also want to condition myself to sleep less, I’ve been sleeping 12 hours a day! and it’s only made me lazy and unproductive. I find I was better off with 6hours.
So hopefully, eventually I will sleep 6 hours, from 12 to 6am.
Let the torture begin.
Also I probably need to buy an alarm clock, my phone just doesn’t cut it! and find an incentive to be up earlier. I used to be up by 5 everyday in highschool to attend my 630am choir reps (I’m a music dork) now I need a new incentive (???) 2 months ago
Don’t stay up as late so I can wake up earlier. Complete this goal by: Spring of Junior year 2 months ago
I just feel lazy if I stay in bed late 6 months ago
How I did it: Being a morning person is one aspect which defined me as a person since childhood. This great trait was lost few years ago and I became self-reliant on my mom waking me up every morning to go to work. For the past 3 years at least I had no interest in trying to wake up by myself.
Recently I took on the act of Islamic praying. I started getting up at 5:00 AM for the Dawn-break Prayer, then the Sunrise Prayer (an hour difference between both), this has helped me immensely staying up whether reading news articles, watching lectures about various subjects, or listening to Sufi Hymns. But most importantly I am a morning person again.
Today I officially think I have become a morning person again. I woke up at 5:00 AM, did my prayers wash, prayed, read chapters from the Quran, opened the windows wide and took a huge dose of fresh air into my lungs. I have already woken up my own sister as per request, I prepared my morning coffee and will be taking a shower shortly and I will be at work early
What a lovely breath the early morning has! While the rest of the world sleeps, you get your dose of fresh air! Read how I did it… 6 months ago
i’m doing this again! 6 months ago
1. Get up when the alarm rings – if you snooze you loose!
2. Exercise! Can be just light stretching, a few yogaposes etc.
3. Have a nice breakfast – light candles and make it cosy. 7 months ago
