Here’s the thing. I hate waking up early but I’m a morning person. I know. It doesn’t make sense. I love mornings because the sun is just rising, it is not too bright, the temperature is cool, everything seems fresh and new. I just hate waking up early if I have to be productive right away. There is nothing more relaxing than waking up in the morning and just lying in bed with no immediate tasks to carry out. That’s why I’m going to share some of my secrets to fall in love with mornings.

1) Have a yummy breakfast in mind before you go to bed. If I have time, I will prep my meals before hand. Food makes me happy. Whoever said food is for survival and not for enjoyment was not seasoning their food properly. If I go to bed knowing I’m going to wake up to something delicious, I am more inclined to wake up early because I am excited to eat.

2) Plan your outfit the night before. If you are into fashion then you know the excitement you get when you wear a bomb-ass outfit. Sometimes, I am more excited to wear an outfit than the event I am dressing up for. Knowing I am about to "kill the game" in an amazing outfit (as superficial as that sounds) is a reason I am pumped to wake up early.

3) Set more than one alarm. I always have 4-5 alarms to start my day. If I have to be somewhere at 10 am. I set my first alarm at 7:30am but I don’t get out of bed until 8:15am. I realized the reason a lot of us hate waking up early is because of the immediate rush to get up and get ready. I find those few minutes before you are fully awake very magical. To be half in a dream-like state and half in reality is beautiful. So, why rush that process? Set an alarm to first wake up, then set an alarm to actually get out of bed then several more after that. I have an alarm for when I should hop in the shower, then when I should do my make up, then when I should grab my laptop and finally an alarm to get out of the house and hit the road.
