How to become an early-riser "morning person"
First off, I'm not one that sleeps in. With two young kids, I'm usually up around 6:15 - 6:45, depending on when they wake.

However, for the people that are up at 5:00 AM and out of bed, reading the news, going for a run, working out, and such, how do you do it? Does it suck for a couple of weeks and then become routine? Do you eventually adjust and become accustomed to it? Also, what time are y'all turning in for the night?

Don’t fight your DNA. Some people are naturally not morning people. There’s nothing wrong with this.

I get up between 6 and 6:30 am. I've tried the 4:30 to 5 am routine. It does not work for me. I need the REM between 4:30 and 6.

Go to bed 8 to 9 hours before you need to wake up and have good sleep hygiene.

Its an incredibly simple concept that is hard for people to execute.

I have had jobs where I needed to be in the workplace by as early as 4:45 AM when I was younger and I just attribute getting up early that to being an idiot

Not a morning person by nature.

Best way I have seen to make the transition is to wear your arse out then get a good night’s sleep starting early. Takes a few days to make the transition but the important part, in my experience, is to get to bed at a reasonable time because as your body gets a sleep deficit, you are going to have to make that time up at some point whether you want to or not.

Building a flexible schedule that allows you to, over time, find what window of sleeping hours works for you is incredible.

For years I worked a job where if I started at 6am, I could leave at 3:15 to 3:30 every day, and have alternating Fridays off.

I put my bedtime at 9pm and stuck to that. Getting up at 5 was not a problem.

It sucks for a little while but your body eventually gets so used to it that you don't even need an alarm

Comes down to value.

I'm up at 5 every Sunday morning, at the grocery store by 5:30 or 6 because I can't stand a packed grocery store. This means on Saturday nights I'm (usually) in bed by 8:30. There's nothing that happens after 9 PM on a Saturday that I value more than sipping coffee on Sunday at 730 AM with my wife, knowing that grocery shopping is done for the week.

Likewise for the week, everybody walks their dogs around 7 AM. So we walk our dog at 6 AM to beat the crowd. After a while it just becomes normal. If we are up past 9 PM we know the next day is going to suck. So we don't stay up that late. As a result, we get our 8-9 hours and we're up early.

All of that is going to come crashing down as I start in public accounting, but I'll enjoy it for now.

have you been tested for sleep apnea? you could have it regardless of your age, weight, etc. apnea will make you feel like shite in the morning since you never really rest.

i can tell you a CPAP is a modern marvel. best sleep of your life and you wake up rested and ready to fight dragons.
