    I don’t do it everyday, but I’ve made it a habit of waking up at 4:30am to catch a train to a nearby town for a 6am workout. Sounds crazy, I know, but the train ride gives me time to catch up on reading, collect thoughts, and the endorphin rush charges me to attack the day. I also love chatting with the regulars and staff, so being a people person makes me WANT to do it, too!

  • Mariah Glenn says:

    I love your vibe more every year 💛

    And there’s so much I’m doing with my extra time in the morning but one thing is reading 🙂

  • JOHNI LEANNE says:

    I have taken your advice and have gotten my butt out of bed at 5:00 a.m. the last 2 mornings. I have been to the gym by 6:00 a.m. and back home to get ready for work at 8:00 a.m. I feel fantastic. Thank you for the motivation to make it happen. I hope it sticks.

  • Alyse Harisay says:

    I really needed this! I’ve been trying to convince myself to be motivated for a morning routine so I can stop hitting snooze and rolling out of bed just in time for work. I just found your channel and am so stoked – you’re positive, motivating, and that gentle kick in the pants that I’ve needed. Thank you! ❤️

    amy: start going to bed early
    me: * watching this at 1 am *

  • Synchronicitizen says:

    After years of being a night shift worker, I tried an insanely early day shift position (5:00AM-1:30PM). What an adjustment! Now I love getting off so early with my work day behind me. You have inspired me to create a more organized start to my day (which, as you said, begins the night before). I thank you for that. Will subscribe!

  • Brittney Kiphart says:

    I love your energy and how real you are about waking up lol I have the same thoughts that run through my head😴

  • t d says:

    I’ve been waking up at 5am since watching this. It’s been 1.5 month now. I use the Sleep Cycle app, and it actually helps me not to feel like a zombie the whole day like the normal alarm. And I go to bed around 1030pm.
    Waking up early has changed my life positively. I usually find myself running out of time, being panicked because of that and then develop a habit of having panic attack for no reason. Now I have more time to learn new things, do what I need to do, feel more confident.
    Just like Jocko Willink said: “Discipline means freedom “.

  • Fat Cookie says:

    Not only can I snooze my alarm in my sleep, but I can walk across the room and turn one off. So I downloaded an extreme alarm clock app… Now I can also solve math problems on my phone to snooze while dead sleep.

  • Amra Kapetanović says:

    How to combine waking up at 5am and going to bed at 1am? Because both are my favorite productive times

    • therealnaebdy says:

      afternoon naps 🙂

    • Deborah de Bacco says:

      Try polyphasic sleeping, look it up

    • Georgie says:

      Sleeping in phases maybe

    • Latavia Puriza says:

      You can sleep in two chunks… sleep early, wake up at midnight, sleep again at 2 and wake up at 5.

    • Sara says:

      First thing I would say that I’m sorry about my bad English, but I think I could help you. Amra what about you Try to sleep a nap in the afternoon between ( 12 p.m. – 3 p.m. ) for just 30 minutes because you don’t wanna get in deep sleep and wake at 3 a.m. 😀
      so just 30 minutes for just Charging your energy. and That’s it!
      hope this helps you, and I recommend that you search about it more.
      Good Luck!

  • Kristen Spadin says:

    I wake up at 5am every day to leave at 7 for work but this was great motivation for those times when I try to talk myself in to sleeping late! My why is to have a quiet morning for yoga, meditation, and journaling to start my day off easy. I also take this time to plan my day both at work and at home. Great tips thanks!

  • Mikah Moore says:

    Your video entered my life at the exact moment I needed it; I am in the process of trying to rebuild my own life, and this is one of the steps I have been struggling to take. I will be taking each and every one of these tips and applying them to my life, and I really want to thank you for bringing them to the attention of those who need it.

  • Phuong Huynh says:

    When I was in high school, I placed an alarm outside of my parents door and set my phone alarm to go off 1 minute before that one would. Every morning, I got up real fast to deactivate that other alarm before 1 min XD

  • Peps Ilieva says:

    Girl, you’re hilarious! This is the second video of yours I’m watching, and I already subscribed whilst watching the first one!

    Anyway, thanks for the tips! I’m already waking up at 5:30am because I need to start work at 6:30am, but will try to implement your tips to wake up 30mins earlier 😉 Love your content, keep it up!

  • Solange Elkallassi says:

    I love this for myself and other people with a similar/the same chronotype but I really feel for those of you who are wired to sleep at 2am and wake at 9am. You the real MVP for fitting yourself into our early work and school conditions!!! Because chronotypes are real and some ppl just aren’t going to be as productive in the AM and that would suck 🙁

  • Kathy0715 says:

    Thank you Amy!!!! I just started my journey as a work at home mom. And it’s sooooo hard to organize myself and make sure I get all things done. I will start waking up at 5 am thank you for the tip!

  • Hanna Grace says:

    Thank you for your thoughts on this. I have never defined my “why” clearly before and had it be a good reason so this helped me to remember that clearly stating my why and having it be really meaningful is the way to achieve this goal. Thanks again for putting your thoughts out there for us!

  • Jake Olsen says:

    Sometimes when I don’t have to wake up I set an early alarm just so I can experience falling asleep again. When the blankets are cold and everything is silent….its wonderful

  • Adriana Girdler says:

    The 5 second rule and hopping out of bed is a great one. There are so many benefits of waking up early that can be experienced when you do so. I’m so thankful for how productive I am every early morning. Cheers!

  • The Angel says:

    I think I’m going to start off small and aim for 7am daily. 😅 Struggling with depression right now and taking better care of myself. I get sleepy after I eat breakfast and journal, but never allow myself to go to bed again. I start my day with gratitude by kissing my pillow as soon as I wake up. 💛 Thank you Amy.
