The mornings are a funny thing. As much as I love my snooze button, my bed, and my beauty sleep, there’s something that draws me to waking up with the peaceful morning light. Especially in the summer, the temptation to sleep in and get my day started after 3PM is sometimes too strong. I’ve adjusted my morning routine, though, to make my hour and a half before work every morning an energizing, and lovely, experience. Check out my seven tips for you to do the same!

It’s time to be realistic — how often do you hit the snooze button? How long do you linger in bed until you get up? Start factoring that extra time in, and set your alarm that much earlier. That way, you can dawdle in bed until you’re ready to face the day, and still have plenty of time for your morning rituals! Here’s a tip: do not set your favorite song as your alarm. I made the mistake of doing that, and now I associate my negative attitude of waking up with that song. Try switching your alarm music up every week — this will keep you from associating bad vibes with one particular song, and will add some necessary variety in your morning routine.
