There are two kinds of people in this world. There are the early birds, and then there are the late risers. If you’re a late riser, you may find it incredibly difficult to get up in the morning without 16 alarms, a self-starting coffee machine, and maybe even someone throwing water on you to wake you up. However, if you’re a late riser and also don’t want to fit a workout in after work, you don’t have much choice. Waking up early for a workout is the best option for you, so don’t press snooze any longer! These tips will ensure that you always get up early to workout.
Find a workout buddy
One of the best ways to ensure that you can get up early and get your sweat on before work is if you find a workout buddy. After all, you would be inclined to just go back to bed if you woke up with a workout staring you in the face, wouldn’t you? When you add another person into the mix, you also add some responsibility into the mix. You are also responsible for making sure that they get up early and exercise – just as they are responsible for also making sure that you get up early to exercise. As if that wasn’t enough, working out with someone else can take the chore away from working out and exercising. By having someone you know and love beside you, you can have a laugh and smile the pain away. What could be better than that?
Keep your alarm away
If you have your alarm right by the side of the bed, it’s time to move it. We know that this might mess up the feng shui of your bedroom – but it really is for the best. When you can just simply lean over and turn off your alarm before it fully wakes you up, you can also get back to sleep without it really messing with your sleepy time. However, if you move your alarm to a place that you can’t reach, you have to get out of bed and walk over the alarm itself. Because you’re already up, you might as well just get up and continue to have a workout, right? Everyone knows that getting back into bed when you’ve had to get up makes it less comfortable than it was before.
Get your clothes ready
Are you the kind of person that loves to buy the coolest workout clothes? If you are, you could use this to your advantage. If you lay out your clothes the night before you are due to take part in your morning workout, you will feel the excitement of being able to wear your cool gym clothes. This will get you ready and mentally prepared for what’s coming for you in the morning, rather than it coming as a shock. So, lay your clothes out the night before, and embrace the sweat.
Do you struggle to get up early to workout? Well, struggle no more.
