I've been waking up at 5AM for almost 4 years now. So I consider myself somewhat of a professional when it comes to waking up early and maximizing it's potential. Last week, I shared some tips on Twitter about how to wake up early and some of the benefits. I thought I'd share here in full!
Some things I’ve gained from waking up at 5am:
This all came with time. It wasn't immediate, so please be patient!

Waking up has a ton of advantages but in order to get the best from your new routine, you have to go to bed early! 9-11PM is my sweet spot. When I go to bed any later, I wake up sluggish. I also miss out on a lot of late-night Internet jokes but I promise, I've gotten used to the FOMO. You'll be just fine.
I hope you enjoy your newfound respect for the morning! I had so much fun, I even started a Daily Sunrise Challenge that continued for more than two years. I hope you're inspired to do the same.
