5 Simple Tips To Have More Productive Mornings As A Night Owl

We humans tend to have very different productivity cycles. Some of us can get up at 6am and start working like a madman while some of us can’t imagine doing anything productive before noon. Unfortunately many still need to try to get used to the ‘normal’ lifecycle and therefore it is important to find some help for your mornings.

Here are five very simple tips to make your mornings more productive as a night owl.

1. Make The Most Out Of Your Sleep

Naturally, it would really help you to stay productive in the morning if you got enough sleep in the first place. It is important that you try and find some simple tricks that can help you fall asleep earlier but sometimes this might just not be enough.

Luckily, it is possible to try and make the most of the amount of sleep you manage to get. For example, make sure you get enough (and regular!) exercise, as this will ensure you sleep better, even if you sleep less. Get a calming alarm to wake you up and learn about your sleep cycle.

2. Create Soothing Rituals

It is also important that you have something to look forward to when you wake up. Creating some soothing rituals for your mornings will help you wake up happier. For example, it can be something as simple as making sure you always have time for making your favourite cup of coffee to get up.

If you like to take a shower in the morning then fill your shower moment with the right scents. It is good to have some energising scents like peppermint and jasmine as part of your shower ritual.

3. Eat A Healthy Breakfast

Having the right diet can help you feel much more energetic and will also boost your sleeping. It is really crucial that you don’t skip your breakfast and that you select foods that help you feel more productive.

4. Have ‘Me’-Time In The Morning

It might also make you go to work a bit happier if you get to have some ‘me’-time before. If you are into music and you are learning to play the guitar then take a quick high-definition guitar lesson in the morning before you go to work. Or read your favourite book for 15 minutes before you leave the house.

Even something as simple as that can ensure that you start your day slowly and can be more productive right from the start.

5. Start With The Right Work

Choosing the right types of work for the morning can also help you accomplish more throughout the day. Firstly, it is important that you know how to divide your workday and that you prepare for it well in advance.

If you don’t feel productive in the morning then get all the easier tasks done first. For instance, check your e-mail and reply to e-mails because this often doesn’t require as much work.

You can also prepare for the day ahead by finding the tools or materials that you need.
