8 Ways To Coax Yourself Into Being A 'Morning Workout Person'

There is nothing more empowering than getting that early morning sweat out of the way to start a positive mind-set day.

8 Ways To Coax Yourself Into Being A 'Morning Workout Person'

1. Push yourself to get out of bed.

Set an early alarm; heck set a couple if you need to because, at some point, you won’t even try to hit snooze. Another way maybe is to place your alarm somewhere away from your bed so that you are forced to jump out and silence it. By working out early in the morning, you are a step ahead of everyone and are more eager to start the day.

2. Before going to bed, set aside your workout gear.

By doing that, you prevent yourself from lingering around your bedroom trying to find the right top, pants, socks and shoes. Save yourself the time of what some might consider “dreading” to go to the gym and just go, go, go.

3. Make the ultimate workout playlist.

There is nothing more motivating than listening to those pump up songs that really make you want to sweat out every inch of stress, anger or anything else that might be on your mind.

4. Be sure to have a snack waiting for you at home.

Make a smoothie, eat some eggs, have yogurt. It does not matter, but by having a good, healthy snack, you are fueling yourself for a fantastic day.

5. Sign yourself up for a class.

By signing up for early morning classes, you know that you have to go and get your money's worth. Whether its yoga, pilates, barre, cycling or anything else, it will be sure to get you moving and feeling great! Also, no one wants to be the person that leaves in the middle of the class, so be sure to push yourself until the end.

6. Remind yourself how great you are going to look.

Some mornings are tougher than others to get out of bed and work out, but keep a positive mind-set about how unreal the results are gonna look if you keep up with it. There is no better feeling than looking in the mirror and noticing the improvements throughout your body.

7. Follow some inspiring Fitspos on Instagram

Kayla Itsines was always a huge inspiration of mine, as well as many others. Follow the accounts that inspire you and get you going. Even following Kourtney Kardashian on Snapchat is a motivation by seeing how tough her workouts are. Sometimes even putting them as the background on your phone is another reminder that says, "Hey! Go workout and go KILL IT!"

8. Realize that it is not always about how you will look, but also how you will feel.

Something that I have noticed about waking up early to work out is that it gives me a more positive mindset for the day. I always feel more energized and excited because I know that I just sweat out any worries and I am ready to conquer a whole new day.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
