Mornings can be rough. Getting yourself ready for a day of meetings, errands, and social obligation is no small feat (especially if you haven’t had a cup of coffee yet.) But just because you aren't necessarily a morning person doesn't doesn't mean you can't have a pleasant, birds chirping, sun shining morning. In fact, there are a number of things to do at night to ensure a productive morning, no matter how late you stay up the night before.
For every night owl out there, there are certain steps you can take in the evening to ensure an easier, happier morning the following day. Since you’re already staying up til the wee hours, you might as well use them to your advantage. What makes mornings so stressful is being sleepy, unprepared, and rushed, so taking steps at night to manage these elements is key to enjoying your a.m. routine.
Get a good night's sleeping, prep everything you can before calling it a night, and give yourself more time than you think you need. By using your nights, a time when you're feeling more awake and relaxed, to get ahead of the game, 7 a.m. will quickly become your new favorite time of day. (Or, at least, a little more bearable.)
