How To Become A Morning Person With Swiftwick Athlete Mo Hendricks

How do you trick your brain into thinking you’re a morning person? Swiftwick Athlete and outdoor enthusiast Mo Hendricks shared her best tips for getting outside on early mornings.

Set a nightly routine.

The night before the early morning alarm sets the tone for how you will wake up. Set yourself up for easier mornings by establishing a consistent routine at night. Mo suggests setting out your workout clothes, having a nightly cutoff time where you stop being available on your phone, setting your alarm away from your bed so you have to get out of bed to turn it off, or any other step that makes your morning routine a little easier.

Find an accountability partner.

Having a partner that also wants to wake up early can help in keeping you accountable. This person can be a spouse, friend, neighbor, or even a pet! Having someone count on you to be there bright and early can help you avoid hitting the snooze button.

Use the five second rule.

Mo recommends using Mel Robbins’ Five Second Method when you’re faced by an early morning wake-up call. Here’s how it works: when you’re faced with something you don’t want to do, count down from five. Once you hit one, make a forward motion - like pulling off the covers or pressing start on that guided workout video.
