Here's how to get started, even if you're not a morning person

1. Start small
Go to sleep 30 minutes earlier, and get up 30 minutes earlier. Start by making your bed, and stick to just one or two morning activities. Build from there once you get comfortable. It’s important to be realistic so that you can stick with it.

2. Do something worth waking up at 6am for
Think about what would get you out of bed at dawn, and use that to create your routine. If you’re forcing yourself to do an activity you’re not that keen on, you won’t make it past the first week.

3. You don’t have to do the same thing every day
“Routines don’t have to be boring,” Joel points out. Don’t go for the same thing every day if it will bore you out of your mind. If workouts are your jam, for example, go ahead and do them every morning – just switch up the exercises.
