For any busy, career-driven person, it’s easy to get caught up in the grind. We pull all-nighters and push ourselves to the limit trying to maximize our output—but really, it’s zapping crucial energy that we need to be productive.
The thought of getting up before 6 am used to make me want to hibernate. Back when hitting “snooze” was my MO, I worked 12-hour days and I was constantly running on fumes. Now, I’ve made tweaks to my morning routine to ensure I hop out of bed at 5:55 am on the dot. I never thought I’d be that guy, but I’m more energized and productive than I’ve ever been before. And it was surprisingly easy; all it took was a few simple changes. Here’s how you can make the transformation from night owl to early bird, too.
