Waking up early to work out can do wonders for your routine. The natural energy of an endorphin rush helps you focus throughout the day while getting you to sleep better at night, and it frees up valuable time later in the day. Getting the motivation to wake up early, though, can be a struggle. Here are a couple of ways to make it happen every morning until it becomes second nature.
The hardest part about an early morning workout is getting out of bed. That all-important step is infinitely easier, though, when you have everything ready to go. The night before, lay out your workout clothes, shoes, socks, water bottle, and even a hair tie so you can easily throw them on without thinking and make your way to the gym. Also, prep what you need post-workout so you can take the rest of the day in stride with your newfound natural energy. For women, pack dry shampoo and a comfortable, quick outfit—a quick dress instead of a two-piece outfit, for example—to get you on your way.
Waking up early is a losing battle if you’re heading to bed late. Ideally, you need seven to eight hours of sleep to feel well-rested, so if you have a 6 a.m. alarm set, make sure you’re asleep by 10 p.m. This shift can be a bit of an adjustment if your current bedtime is at midnight, but with the help of a fast-acting sleep aid like DREAMit, you can gradually make it happen. It’s essential to remember that you won’t fall asleep the second your head hits the pillow, so prep for a good night’s sleep by getting into bed 20 to 30 minutes earlier.
Morning workouts can give you energy to power through your day, but sometimes getting started bright and early can take some extra motivation. To pump yourself up on the way to the gym, create a workout playlist on your phone filled with upbeat, high energy songs, and change the songs often, so you don’t get sick of them. If you want a little more natural energy walking into the gym, try incorporating CHARGEit into your routine for a boost. Unlike energy drinks, you only need a couple of sprays to wake yourself up, which avoids that sloshing feeling in your stomach while you work out. Plus, CHARGEit will give you natural energy without the crash, nipping that coffee crutch before you reach for it.
Whether you’re having trouble falling asleep early or can’t get yourself out of bed with your new workout routine, itSpray can give you the natural energy to be a morning person. With a blend of vitamins and herbs in every bottle, all you need to do is apply a spritz under your tongue and reap the benefits in seconds.
