Becoming a morning person requires discipline and routine. I was a night person not by choice but my life was such. I attended college during the day and worked during night often sleeping late. After I graduated I still followed the same routine even with the luxury of time. However, whenever I woke up I never really felt fresh. It was a difficult journey; however, I have managed to turn myself into a morning person. Read the blog to know how you can adopt the morning routine that will not only improve your mood throughout the day but also enrich the experience of living.

Substitute Coffee with Morning Exercise
Exercise prompts the flow of blood in your body waking up your brain. In my experience, the days I work-out are more productive than the days I don’t. Exercise did for me what 10 cups of coffee couldn’t do when I was in graduation. Make a routine of exercising, it will improve your mood in the morning and holistically promote good health.
