“I am simply not a morning person!” Have you heard that term before? Does it sound familiar to you? I have heard and even made that statement over and over and over again. When I find myself at school or at work at 7 or 8 in the morning and I am dozing off, I will convince myself that the fact that I only had about 3 hours of sleep last night has nothing to do with it but instead it is the fact that I am simply not a morning person . What does a morning person actually mean? Is it someone that has trouble waking up in the morning or someone that is not productive in the mornings? A morning person is usually someone who has a that of energy in the morning time but then looses that energy as the day progresses. Contrary to that, a night person will get the boost of energy at night but then crash in the morning time.
Fortunately, for those “night people,” there are jobs, school schedules, and lifestyles all together to meet their individual needs. In general, it is important to ensure at all cost to at least maintain a 6 to 8 hour sleeping period at night or in the morning (whatever your schedule will happen to be) in order to be productive during the day. Realtors such as Brad Roemer would understand the importance of being consistent as slip-ups usually do occur during your day but when you get a better sleep they tend to be more productive during your day as your brain is also well rested.
Now, most days will not be the same, you may have a day where you were taking things slow and you may have a day where you were very busy and found yourself running around all day. In all, it is important to have a morning routine every morning in order to maintain consistency. Your morning routine does not actually begin in the morning time but it starts the night prior. Plan your day ahead of time so that you have an idea as to what you will be doing, where you will be going, who you will be meeting as well. That will give you a good idea as to how to choose your outfit for the following day, what to set aside in your purse or briefcase. The following day you will simply have to follow through with the plan that was put into place without worrying about the time and what you should be doing but is not doing at the moment. All you will need to do is to pull out your schedule and follow through with your day.
Now you are ready for your morning routine! Regardless about what you will be doing during the day and at what time you will be waking up it is highly recommended to first drink a cup of water when you step out of bed as your body went on for a long period of time without any liquids. Treat your body well, give it some liquids to receive a dose of hydration first thing in the morning. It is also important to eat your breakfast between within the first hour of the time you wake up to keep your body nourished as it went through the longest period of the day without any food either. Get ready by taking your shower, brushing your teeth and finally getting dressed. Some people like to workout in the mornings and some prefer working out I night. Chose what works best for you and what works best for your schedule but always ensure to give your body some exercise at least 5 times a day.
