We all know one: a morning person. The guy who hops onto the subway, smiling, a book in hand. The woman vibing with the radio on her congested commute. The coworker who arrives at the office having just jogged three miles around a park. These people's existence is, at best, dumbfounding — at worst, beyond aggravating. Morning people don't just begrudgingly rouse themselves from sleep to the tune of their dreaded iPhone alarm. They spring forth from a restful slumber spent dreaming about rainbows, and they awake to opportunity and birdsong — or, at least, breakfast.
Here, we've rounded up five home habits of highly effective morning people that you can try for yourself. Let us know in the comments if they work for you!
