Day #136: The Early Bird


Are you an early bird? Are you rising early with the intent to be productive? Are you rising up early to get “your worm”? The traits of a morning person bring benefits that I believe will make you a better person more and more each day. But the big question remaining is:

How do I become this amazing morning person?

Firstly you need to want to be this amazing morning person and secondly, you need to choose to be.

Regardless of how much you want it and should you choose to want to pursue it, the below 3 points are crucial in helping you make your mornings that extra bouncy!


Early morning risers need to have any sense of flow and structure you need a routine and a good one at that. It means you should have a structured morning each day whether it be the same as the day before, or maybe an alternating routine, or even a completely different routine on the weekend. The idea here is to have something which becomes second nature to you. Once your routine has become normal to you, your mind and body will learn to adapt and go with its natural flow. This will put your whole morning into a kick started state when you wake, as your whole body and state of mind will be already working towards doing what it should be… but subconsciously.


Attitude is the key to any good day. Take away routines and you are left just another day. But attitude creates a day into what you want it to be. Early risers who set their attitude the moment they wake up, usually set the tone and theme for the day. Setting your morning tone influences the remaining actions of your day. However, you can also overcome your false or unhappy attitude by stepping out of your current zone refreshing your mind and trying again. 


Excitement is all about taking the little things of your day and turning them into the highlights. These include the high points and using these as motivators and encouragements. When we’re excited we do stuff, we overcome fears, we take chances, w make tough decisions, we push the boundaries, we explore our potential, we become solution-focused and we become more resourceful. Chat with any successful person about their goals and their passion and you’ll see what I mean about excitement. If you’re not excited (on some level) about your goals, then you may need to find some different ones.

Do you think you are up for it? Will you give it a go being an early bird?
