How To Become A Morning Person

Before we get started with this blog post, take a few minutes to reflect on what your daily routine currently looks like.

What do you do when you first wake up?

What do you do before bed? How do you feel when you wake up?

Do you feel you are a morning person?

Share it in the comments so I know what your current day looks like and we can see the progress.

Night time routine

“Your morning mindset starts the night before”

Have a good night routine to set yourself up for a good night sleep. Get yourself organised with a to-do list and schedule for the following day, organise your clothes and do whatever else you need to so you can fully relax knowing you’re ready for tomorrow.

Add self-care into your evening. I always finish all business activity at 9pm. After this time I don’t go on my phone or laptop, I use this time for reading, journaling, meditating or anything else that promotes self-care and puts me in a positive state before sleep.

Waking up

When I wake up I know exactly what I do as my morning routine, I keep it the same every day so it sticks as a habit and I don’t have to think to do the activities daily. This is what my morning consists of:

  • Reading
  • Affirmations
  • Journaling
  • Visualisation
  • Exercise
  • Meditation
  • Listening to podcasts while getting dressed and having breakfast

Your morning can look however you want it to, if you enjoy exercise then add a workout to it. If meditation or a mindful walk is more your thing then do that. It has to be something that you enjoy doing in order for it to have a positive impact.

I don’t do all these activities every morning because I have to, I do it because I want to. If I’m not enjoying a certain activity I remove it from my morning routine and I recommend you do the same. You can always learn new things and add new activities into your morning, do your research and find what other people like doing. Try them out and if you enjoy it then add it to your morning and see how you find it.

Put together a schedule for your morning to keep you on track, set the alarm earlier to make time for this before you start your day. Let me know in the comments what you’ve added to your morning and how it’s made you feel. I guarantee it has improved your mindset and your life like my new morning routine has.

    I love this! It’s so true that how you prepare at night can effect the next morning.

  • Victoria

    It’s so hard for me to be a morning person! But I keep trying…

  • Kasia Olszewski

    I’ve added working out and/or running to my list in the morning. I definitely have a lot to work on towards being a morning person.

  • Raquel

    Though these are helpful tips, I’m not certain they will turn me into a morning person. I have a very difficult time resolving my end of day tasks without them carrying over and keeping me up late into the evening. It is a viscious cycle.

  • Kathryn

    This is onof my goals for 2018. Thanks for sharing.

  • Lucy

    Your post is really timely as I’ve been thinking that I need a morning routine. My current routine (if you can all it that) is one of necessity rather than intention.
    Thanks for the helpful tips. I’m going to give it a go.

  • Evelyn, Path of Presence

    Great suggestions, Lucy! I’ve been a lifetime morning person and I love it. It comes easily and naturally for me as I have the most energy when I wake up. Your suggestions are wonderful and will really help those who may have more of a challenge of “hopping to” than us morning people. 😀

  • Kumamonjeng

    I am a morning person so I start my day very early and have similar routine like yours. I do add in exercises which I enjoy in my daily routine. I guess one need to be very discipline in order to be successful. Thanks for the tips.

  • Kamapala Chukwuka

    I only started being a morning person when I started working on my self. Now I wake up with hope, with expectation for what the day will bring. I have to say though that these suggestions are brilliant! I follow must of them and I highly recommend them…meditating, affirmations always set the pace for me. Thanks for sharing xx

    preparing things the night before definitely helps reduce the stress of the next day. unfortunatelygetting my son ready for school every morning takes over everything and leaves very little time for anything else. enjoy your mornings, they sound amazing!

  • Chana

    It is always a hit or miss with me. I don’t ever know if I’m a morning person or a night owl. However, during the school year… it was definitely helpful to prepare the night before to be more successful in the morning.

    • Lucy

      Yes definitely. I think we can be both. I love my morning for personal development and find I can work productively in the evenings 💗

  • Evelyn, PathofPresence

    Thank you for this ~ I absolutely love getting a head start, especially when it comes to positivity. Beginning the night before allows you to pre-program your mind for a brilliant day, awaiting you as soon as you open your eyes.

  • Susan Peck Life Coach

    This is such a timely post, as I have been working on refining my morning routine to make my days more productive – how we start off has such a big impact on how the rest of our day goes. I also like to read and listen to podcasts in the morning, and I’ve found that avoiding electronics until I’m ready to start work helps a lot. For me, the missing step is probably organizing the night before, and that’s what I’ll be working on next. Thanks for sharing your tips!

    • Lucy

      That’s great about avoiding electronics. This is something I need to work on some mornings. I do my morning routine everyday without fault but my phone sneaks into it occasionally 💗

  • Ifeoluwa

    My morning routine is something I’ve struggled with because I always want to wake up on time but still find myself in bed. These tips were really helpful!

  • Rita

    These are very good tips. I also started a morning routine recently. It includes yoga, reading and listening to podcasts. I should add affirmations, that is a brilliant idea. However, I don’t think I am a morning person but trying… 🙂
