  • Get 7-8 hours of sleep
    2 / 8 Get 7-8 hours of sleep

    Night owls often run on a few hours of sleep that messes with their sleeping and waking patterns. If that sounds familiar, you can begin adjusting your body clock by preparing a night-time schedule. Instead of rushing through your chores as midnight approaches, plan to wash up and get dressed for bed a few hours after dinner. Ideally, you’re in bed by 11 pm as that will energise you to begin preparing for work at 6 or 7 am the following day.

    3 / 8 Don't snooze

    If you have set your alarm clock for 7 am, do not click the snooze button. Depending on how long your snooze setting ticks off again, pressing it several times could already put you half an hour behind schedule. The hardest part of your morning routine is getting out of bed, so avoid the temptation of snoozing and wake up already!

  • Don’t have coffee first thing in the morning
    5 / 8 Don’t have coffee first thing in the morning

    Sadly, yes, you read it right. The reason your body clock might be finding it difficult to relax at night could be because you have coffee first thing every morning. As our body’s natural circadian cycle wakes our body up during the first few hours of the morning, confusing it with caffeine increases your dependence on the drink. Instead, reserve your cup of Joe for after 9.30 am and you’ll find it much easier to fall asleep at night.

  • Give yourself time to adjust
    8 / 8 Give yourself time to adjust

    Do not worry if you find it challenging to adjust to your early morning schedule immediately. Our bodies take time to ease into a new scheme of things, so if you are used to waking up at 9 or 10 am every morning, do not immediately set your alarm for 6 am the next day. Fall slowly into your new routine by achieving some progress each day. Good luck with your early rising endeavours!
