How I Became A Morning Person

How I Became A Morning Person

I’m fascinated with habits. I love the romantic notion that tomorrow is full of infinite possibilities, and the reality is what we did yesterday is the best predictor of what we’ll do tomorrow.

In fact, depending on which research you look at, between 30–80% of our daily activities are on automatic pilot. Whatever your percentage, habit patterns translate to a significant portion of our day.

This is the story of the surprising things I learned along the way to becoming a morning person, using behavioral change and habit formation to get my grumpy butt out of bed and thrive in the morning hours.
