I've found that getting everything ready the night before helps (gym clothes, shoes, preworkout, etc.)




This is key for me.


Just transitioned from nightly runs to early AM runs with the time change and temperature change. Set the coffee maker to auto and lay my clothes out the night before. Takes a little while to get used to it.

The circadian rhythm is legit.

I've been 4-4:30 for a decade or so. Get up, work out, go to the office. It does take some time to get used to it. But as others have said, bedtime is generally between 9-10 and gotta keep the booze to a minimum.

Very few reasons to get up before the sun. Fishing, putting meat on the smoker... my list is done.

re: How to become an early-riser "morning person"
When I was born my Dad was a cop working nights so my Mom kept me up all night until my Dad got home and then we would sleep, she didn't want me making noise during the day when my dad was sleeping. So I am a night owl.

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.


Whatever you say. Its not easy to force yourself to sleep at 8am to get 8 hrs. And to be honest, I think its quite dumb as you miss out on life between 8-10pm- only to get up at the crack of dawn to hear nothing but birds. But do you.

I’m a night owl. No matter how tired I am I’ll end up staying up to 11pm-12. I don’t get it.

Even when I wake up naturally early without an alarm, I have no will power to get up

I’m up at 4 for my morning workout, but I also am crashing by 9:30. I sleep really well.

I also don’t drink anymore, so that probably helps.

Get up early.


Used to work with a man that had retired from the air force after 20 years. A firefighter. He got in the habit of getting in bed at 6 or 7 and getting up at 3 or 4. And it stuck with him. He's completely retired now, but he STILL stick to that routine. It's kind of grafted on to him now.

re: How to become an early-riser "morning person"
Just be committed. Hard core. Don’t let your dreams be dreams. Attack the dawn.

I have an internal clock that goes off at 4:45am. I don’t go back to sleep. I roll off my bed and land in a push up position and knock out 100 reps. Then I crab walk over to the ab lounger and redline it until it is about to break apart. I have busted screws off several times.

Then coffee break over the NYT crossword and a couple of sudoku challenges. Next is a five mile sprint through the woods to a waterfall where I clean myself. A leisurely walk home and meditation by my koi pond., etc.

Not going to give the rest of my daily routine but the point is to exhaust yourself with productivity.

I generally wake up at like 9:30 on weekdays and 11 on weekends. Up until 2:30-3 every night. I prefer it, not a morning guy at all.

A few mornings of very little traffic and some spectacular sunrises did it for me. Left the house at 5 am every workday.

re: How to become an early-riser "morning person"
I wish I was a morning person but circadian rhythms are real.I like to hunt and fish and it’s a pain to have to fight to get up early.My best sleep is between 4-8 am.If I get up before then about 5 mornings in a row 6’th morning I’ m going to crash until about 10 am.to catch up and drag around all day.
No matter how early I get up I come alive about 10 pm.
My paternal grandfather was like that.He was a farmer and after he quit farming he went to sleep at 2am and got up at 10 am.
