re: How to become an early-riser "morning person"
Lately I've been crashing out at 9:30 PM.. I'm only 33. I realize this is probably too early. I have 0 morning routines.. but have found myself waking up at 5:50 - 6:00 without an alarm. Just a week or so ago I was needing my alarm to get up at 7:15.

I wake up just after 5 AM all week long to facilitate kids, school, work commute, etc. You just get used to it; I’ve been at it for four years, now.

Spend 10 years or more in the Army, I guarantee you will become an early riser! Retired over 20 years ago, and I still wake up before 5 daily. And generally asleep by 10pm.

Just a practice thing. For now, set your alarm, get up when it goes off, then do something meaningful, if able try some sort of exercise (walk/jog/bike), it will condition your body/mind faster.

Up anywhere between 3:30-4:30 am depending on how far we need to run. It sucks when you first start getting up early and it definitely sucks if you stay up too late. We try to go to bed early but it doesn't always happen. Discipline and thinking about the fact that we will have to run at 6pm when we'd rather drink a beer is what pulls us out of bed!

re: How to become an early-riser "morning person"
I usually get up when you do

Don't want to be up at 5 am because there's nothing to do at that time. I don't bring work home with me. Nothing is open yet. My side gig depends on websites that update between 6 and 6:30. So I would just be twiddling my thumbs.

It's just how I'm wired. Always have been an early riser. The flip side is I go to bed early. Always have. My mom said I used to put myself to be by 8 when I was a toddler.

I don’t use an alarm clock. My phone stays on the night stand on do not disturb and I very rarely look at the time.

I go to be between 11-12 as well and I done sleeping as soon as I can see light coming through the shudders. I’ll finally get out of bed around 645-7 am but that’s usually about 30 minutes after I wake up.

I usually wake up around 430 to piss then toss and turn for the next few hours.

People say this, but I legit cannot get used to it. Had a job that started at 7:30 for 3 years and I was just as miserable 3 years in as I was on day 1.

My bed time varies— last night it was 3am. Lol. But typically I’m in bed by 9-10 and sleep until 8. I’m a sleeper. My SO sleeps until lunchtime, but he works nights most of his on weeks, so that’s a bit different.

Yeah 5-6 hours is seen as the normal and a badge of honor. But very few people can actually live like that long term and be healthy.

Seriously, frick your ego. Get 8-9 hours. If you can't manage that, 7 is a huge step up from 5-6. If you find yourself dozing off on the weekends when you sit on the couch, that isn't normal and you have an issue.

re: How to become an early-riser "morning person"
I just stared this last week. I've been getting up at 4 to go workout because doing my workouts in the evenings were too late (kids).

The first week was rough but this week, it's been a little easier. I've found that getting everything ready the night before helps (gym clothes, shoes, preworkout, etc.)

Make a list of 5 items you want to accomplish in the morning. Then pick 1 or 2 to get done by the time you leave the door (if able). If I have things I want to get to get done and I know what they are the night before then waking up early is no struggle.

re: How to become an early-riser "morning person"
Work out so your body is tired and try to go to bed by 9-9:30 pm

I've been doing it for years and.
love the early morning time, especially on the weekends.

I usually get up at 4:00 am to 4:30 am
Start Coffee
Take the dog for a 30 minute walk
Drink coffee while logging on to check sites/news/sports
Log on to work and start at 5:30 am work till 3:30 pm but have an hour and 1/2 break where I lift weights at home
At 3:30 pm go do my two mile walk with dog
I'm shuffling a kid around to school, sports, mall etc etc in here too
Make dinner and eat by 6:00 pm
Watch a little TV and do home stuff/cleaning/homework
Bed and repeat

Man what a boring life. So do you just skip the second half of Tennessee games? What about when the game starts at 8?

There isn't much better than drinking a cup of coffee just before sunrise and enjoying the still quietness, then listening to the world wake up as the sun comes up.

I've been known to get up around 3:30 to light the fire pit in the winter, and drinking my coffee next to it while the sun comes up.

I feel like I've wasted the day if I sleep past 7.

re: How to become an early-riser "morning person"
I get up at 5am to workout every day. If you told my 15-25 YO self I would be a 5am riser no problem by 30 I wouldve called you a liar

I would say most people cant just "decide" to be a morning person. You have to have a reason to get up that early and and you need some accountability (for me its the gym and the group I workout with). You also need to go to bed early and most people dont want to be asleep by 9.
