Step 7: Some additional tips for follow up.

Picture of Some additional tips for follow up.

Here are a few other tips to keep in mind to help you be successful in your quest to become a morning person…

  • First, don’t drink caffeine or other stimulants after 1500 (3pm) You need to wean yourself off of them anyway, you don’t need them anymore!
  • Try not to eat heavy meals after 2000 (8pm)
  • Do NOT use ANY sleeping aid.
  • Try not to exercise 2 hours before you plan to go to sleep
  • Don’t try to fight going to sleep because you are watching TV or reading.  That is what TIVO is for.
  • If you feel sleepy during the middle of the day, and you can, take a few minute nap.  Again, you want to wake up on your own, not with an alarm.

After a while, this will all be second nature.  Enjoy your new found time!

I LOVE you man.
Thank you, I'll follow your advice :) Now that I think about it, I used to do this some years ago during the summer (before we had wireless internet....) and I felt great all the time, even if I rode my bike all day, run, whatever..

"Before you go to bed, drink two glasses of water. You will need to get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. Congratulations, your day just started!"

You said no later than 2000 for the latest big meal. How long before sleeping would you say? Not everyone will have the same sleep schedule and it might be more helpful to be relative (Like the exercise comment.).
