Getting up early every day is a struggle we all go through, especially when you're not exactly a morning person. But to get more done in the day and to be able to start a more healthy lifestyle, waking up early is vital. It's also a great way to boost your mood. Since we think the world would be a better place if everyone was a morning person, who didn't see waking up as a chore, we decided to make a list of all the ways you can easily do every day to become a morning lover. So if you're ready to be more productive and to leave all those groggy and sleepy days behind, just scroll down below for the 7 ways you can finally have brighter mornings ahead all the time.

1. Sleep early, every day. The first step to becoming a morning person is sleeping early so that you get enough rest for the next day. Making a habit of this will make it easier to get up willingly every single day.

2. Wake up at the same time every day. Consistency is key to becoming a morning person. Setting the same alarm every day (even on the weekends) will have you jumping easily out of bed in no time.

3. Have a fun reason to wake up to. Most of the time we dread waking up because it means having to get ready for school or other chores. Make getting up easy by doing something you like right away, like painting, reading a chapter of your favorite book, or watching an episode of your favorite show.

4. Have breakfast. Don't skip this because giving yourself time to have eggs and pancakes will give you the energy you need to fully wake up, plus a serving of bacon can totally boost anyone's mood.

5. Ditch the snooze. Don't give yourself to chance to sleep in by making multiple alarms. Simply keep it at 2, one for when you really have to wake and one for just in case you sleep through the first. This will help in making you voluntarily getting out of your comfy bed.

6. Work out. Once you have a morning routine, like exercising with your besties, waking up is going to be a walk in the park. Plus, all those endorphines will give you another mood booster!

7. #Treatyoself. Give yourself simple rewards every time you actually wake up, like a mango smoothie or a donut for dessert. Whatever you choose, this will make waking up much more fun and positive!
