He likes to be in bed at a certain time and all hell breaks looks when this doesn’t happen. Remember! I AM HOSTING A GIVEAWAY!! BE SURE TO ENTER!

100 Subscribers Amazon Gift Card Giveaway!

First of all THANK YOU SO MUCH

When I originally started my youtube channel a few months back I never thought I would have any subscribers beyond Lee and a few family members. I am humbled beyond belief by the support I have received in my channel! I will be the first to admit there have been times where I have thought about just deleting it. I always remind myself I am doing this for myself. Not anyone else.

My eBay business is definitely growing, slowly!, but it’s still growing! A BIG major thank you to EVERYONE. To the people who have given me awesome recommendations and tips on how to grow my business, to the “hatters” who are basically just leaving skid marks on the internet, and to the people who don’t know you made an impact on me and my business!

Over the next few months I am working on expanding my youtube channel with more content. I know it looks like sometimes I forget about it but I swear I am working on it! I’m not forgetting about it. There is a lot of work going into it but it’s just all behind the scenes and I’m keeping quiet about it for now 😉 But stick around! I promise more is coming!

Anyways, I decided to do this by raffelcopter because I wanted to keep it fair! Again, THANKS FOR EVERYTHING! YOU ROCK! Don’t forget to enter!

How To Train Yourself to Become a Morning Person

I am not a morning person…there I said it. I HATE mornings. I have never been a morning person but honestly the older wiser I get, the more I need to be one.  I am a night owl as people call it. I like to get my work done when people are sleeping and out of my way. However, I have an infant who goes to bed at 7pm on the dot every night and wakes up at 7:30am on the dot. I also have a 5 year old who has to be at the bus stop by 7AM every morning starting in August. So life has basically forced me to become a morning person.

I am in the process of “training” my body to like mornings. Let me tell you bob, It ain’t been easy. Here are some tips I am currently implementing to become a more friendly morning person 🙂

Alarm Clock and tips to become a morning person when your a night owl
5 tips to help become a morning person
  1. Set yourself a bedtime- I know this one appears obvious but the key is to stick with it. Sure, you may only be half way through your episode of whatever your watching on Netflix. However, let’s get real here, It’s still going to be there tomorrow. Turn off the TV and go to bed.
  2. Power Down– An hour before bed turn off your computer and cell phones. Take it one step further and make your bedroom an “electronic free zone”. People tend to have a bad habit of using their phone in bed to relax or they check their Facebook just “one more time” before they fall asleep. According to Harvard healthy publications the blue lights on your screens has a dark side.  Your cell phone can be a huge distraction that’s actually keeping you awake instead of relaxing you.
  3. Change your alarm– I switched from my standard iPhone Alarm to the Sleep Cycle app. While you sleep the app analyzes your sleep. Then it wakes you up in your lightest sleep phase. Too learn more about it read this.
  4. Start a Nighttime Routine– I admit I haven’t started implementing this yet. Princess is on the west coast visiting her dad currently so if I started my routine would just be disrupted when she returns and I’d rather have one that works better for everyone involved. Basically, an our (or more) before bed starting getting ready for bed and for the next day. For example, Set everyone’s clothing out for the next day, pack everyone’s lunch, give the kids their baths, and whatever else may help shorten your morning routine.
  5. Time to get cozy!- Make your room a cozy inviting place that is distraction free! Need a new bed? Get one. Need new curtains to keep out the light? buy it. Is your bedroom too warm and keeping you up? Turn down the AC! Whatever you have to do to make your bedroom a cozy place that relaxes you and doesn’t keep you awake at night do it!

Are you a morning person or a night person? What helps you wake up in the morning?
