Unfortunately not all of us are morning people, no matter how hard we try! However, there are tons of benefits of waking up earlier, including having more time to fit exercise in and making your day a more productive one! If you need a little extra help to wake up in the morning, try these tips:
Place your alarm on the other side of the room
When you keep your alarm next to your bed, how easy is it just to roll over and press snooze? If you’re someone that’s prone to doing this, then try putting your alarm on the other side of the room. This means the ONLY way that you can turn it off is to get out of bed.
Plan your gym outfit the night before
Doing this can be a timesaver in the morning as it means you waste less time trying to find things, or put a half decent outfit together. This also prevents you from forgetting to bring a change of clothes, especially if you have to get changed after the gym to go to work or school! It’s so easy to just grab your bag and go in the morning.
I’ve heard of a few BBG girls who’ve actually SLEPT in their gym clothes so that all they need to do it to roll out of bed when their alarm goes off (dedication, I know)!
Get a gym buddy
I think we can all agree that we are less likely to bail on the gym when we know that there’s going to be someone there waiting for us. Finding someone who is a reliable gym buddy can make all the difference. After all, if you sleeping in is going to let someone else down - you’re less likely to do it!
Plus, if they are a morning person they can act like a second alarm and message you to make sure you are awake!
Next time you are struggling to get up, try some of the above tips - they can make the world of difference!
