The Beauty of Waking up Early

I know I’ve briefly mentioned the benefits of getting up early in one of my other blog posts, but I wanted to make a post that’s just dedicated to getting your day started early. Especially before the New Years.

 

Morning or Night

  Knowing when your most productive is key to choosing your wake up time. I say that because the time that I am most productive is in the morning 9am-12pm. So I wake up around 5:30/6am. After that I’m pretty much doing everything I can not to do the work.

  

Choose a Practical Time

This is important because you don’t want to train your body getting up and unrealistic timeframe and then going to bed very late, you’re going to be worn out so knowing when your most productive will help you choose this time frame.

 

The Night Before

Do you remember in middle/high school during the first week of school, we’d have all our clothes picked out for the first week. You know to look nice as possible, but after two weeks we stop doing that. Get back into the habit of getting everything together that night. It will save at least 15 minutes of your morning time routine.I have a small tip for sleeping soundly at night. Invest in an alarm clock and use that in the morning instead of your cell phone this will prevent you from scrolling down Instagram for another hour.

 

The Morning

After you’ve gotten yourself ready, create a success list. These are your short term goals today. You don’t have to add every little assignment on it. Just make yourself aware that you have a plan for today.

Ex.  Get Gas

        Go to the library

        Contact Advisor

        Make dinner

 

 

Comment below some of your tip that you use to get up early.

GYST

Tips for a Productive Week

A GYST Day can be any day but I typically start mine on a Sunday just to recap on the prior week and the week that is ahead. If you aren't familiar with the term GYST, it is short for Get your shit together. Starting it on Sunday give me time to figure out what the most important task that I need to tackle, or if I need a break from the crazy schedule.

Wake up Earlier

 Everyone is not a morning person, I know I wasn't at first. Waking up a little earlier gives you a head start on the day. Okay,  I attempt to get up around 5 am but don't make it out the sheets until 6 am that's still really early for some people.

List

I am really big on list. If I don't write it down I'd probably forget most of my scheduled plans, that's a problem. After making your list cross of the unnessary plans that may take up to much time.

Clean Makeup Brushs

I wear makeup probably five times out the week reusing the same brushes. All that build up will cause your face to break out its like when you fall asleep with your make-up on.

Gym

I always say "yeah, I'm going to go to the gym" in my head, but then I'll spend an hour on social media. Actually going to the gym is pretty hard for me. I have to remind myself why I wanted to go to the gym in the first place and that usually gets me up and going. After a workout, I feel energized and never regret going.

Clear Emails

If you're like me, you probably check your email about 50 times a day. I know I'm not expecting anyone but I check frequently. So clearing out my email relieves a lot of stress for me because it makes me feel less cluttered and it gives me a reason not to continually check.
