4 Wake-Up Hacks that will help you get your Morning Workout!

Research has shown that people who work out in the morning are more likely to make exercise a regular habit. However, many of us work 9-5 jobs, and waking up early can be more difficult than we think.

Lucky for you, we’ve put together a list of ‘wake-up hacks’ that will hopefully do the trick. Let’s get started!

Get A workout buddy

Find your workout buddy  and make a pact that involves you both getting up early and working out before work. Check in with each other every morning about five minutes after you’re supposed to get up. When you share your goals with someone else you’re more likely to follow through.

Set two alarms

Treat yourself to a little bit of tough love if you are not a morning person. Pick the two most unpleasant songs from your music library for your alarms so you’ll be forced to get up to make the auditory torture stop.

Reward your wins

Change is hard — that’s why people don’t like to do it.  For every month you meet your wake-up-and-work-out goals, reward yourself. It could be anything you’ve had your eye on – trying out a new restaurant, a massage, whatever you want! Working toward a reward will get you all pumped up so don’t be stingy towards your rewards.

Pop some peppermint

Peppermint is said to be a stimulant, Keep it next to your bed so all you have to do is reach over. Eating a peppermint  first thing is a hack you can rely on to get going in the morning.


The bottom line

It’s not easy to jump out of bed all bright-eyed early in the morning. It’s a process that takes time, which is why it’s important to make sure to keep yourself motivated with things you actually want. Become a wake-up-and-work-out person with a little preparation, a great playlist, and a solid plan to help you keep going.
