Can you BECOME a morning person?

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. I don't think you can make yourself a morning person permanently if you've been a night owl your whole life. I worked for Royal Mail for 2 years, up at 4:00am 6 days a week, had other jobs were I've started early but always fall back into the same pattern again when I'm not forced to get up early. I just have more energy at night it's my natural state.


  2. In agreement with others, you need to recalibrate you internal clock by setting a schedule. Is there a certain reason you want to be a morning person?

    Everybody is different. I worked nights for some time and my body adjusted. Now I'm working days waking up at 4am and on the weekends (when I don't work) I naturally wake up at 7am feeling I just slept 12 hours.

  4. So I didn't feel like making another thread, as it kinda fits this thread. But I got a question. So I've pretty much ALWAYS been a morning person. Naturally waking up around 550ish and sleeping in is 645ish for me. Also I usually easily wake up early(like 3:15ish) if I have something to do; like homework. But for the last month I can't get out of bed before 7 even then I'm dragging ass all day. Any ideas of why? It's not like I'm staying out late or anything.

    Stress, hormonal changes, diet, recovery, injury, life ect. Literally could be anything, sleep is the strangest thing, sometimes I'll wake up at 5am fresh as a daisy but if I've had a really hard week at work I could sleep in till 12 on the weekend. There isn't much to mitigate it apart from following a routine and trying to stick to it ie. try go to bed around the same time and if your alarm goes off at 5, get up regardless of how you feel, force it upon yourself. My beliefs anyways.

  6. Had your same problem till I decided that living in the morning was better than living in the night...unless you own a night club ofc..in that case the night is heaven...

    Anyway when you just cant wake up early and cant fall asleep before 2 am there is only one solution...skip and entire night, play video games watch movies or caffeinate yourself then the following night just let yourself collapse at bed at 8pm, you will probably wake up at 8am the following morning.
    From that point make an extra effort and wake up at 8 am for the following 10 days, this will help to fix your sleeping pattern.

    Once you are there you can manipulate day by day by adding or removing up to half an hour, Its working for me and once it gets cold again a d1ckheads disappears from the streets late at night, I'll find a way to go to sleep at 11pm and wake up at 7.30

    Trust me mate there is much more stuff to do before 10am than after 12pm even the people you meet is less annoying...unless of course you own a night club or better yet a strip one.

    ps it helps to sleep in a cold room with no lights, not even the red dot from the tv.

  7. I've recently gotten back to training at 5am (used to train at 4pm) and initially I was dragging but I've gotten into the routine of getting up at like 445am every day. What I did at first was set my alarm on my phone and put it on the other side of the room so I was force to get up and turn it off and since I was up it was easier to stay up and of course, pre workout.

  8. I need a shower in the morning to wake me up. I like to play some tunes while I'm in the shower to get me motivated. If you want to take it to the next level they make soap with caffeine. Try taking a shower, jamming out, and bathing in caffeine... tell me that doesn't wake you up!

  9. The best advice I can give is make sure you're getting enough sleep. If you're up at 6 am, it'll be best that you're asleep by 10 pm. It's a transition but it's more than worth it. Secondly, what worked for me was getting up as soon as my alarm went off (I placed my iPad that I use for my alarm in the other side of the room) and drinking a glass of water. If I snooze once, I'm miserable
