Morning people – those ‘seize the day’ people who wake you up every morning making their smoothies. Well, becoming one of those people isn’t as hard as you think. They’re that annoying person who’s just come back from a run as you’re dragging your hungover self into the kitchen to reheat a slice of last night’s pizza for ‘breakfast’.
Set yourself a time to go to bed
It’s hard to do when all your friends are wide-awake watching films or getting ready to go out but setting yourself a time to go to sleep will provide you with some body-clock consistency. Pick a time and stick to it. It’ll be hard in the first few weeks but you’ll get used to in no time.
Reading relaxes and allows you to switch off from everyday life. You’ll soon find yourself dropping off.…and don’t go on your phone!
Don’t just get a book out and Instagram that you’re reading because you’ll become glued to your phone. Turn your phone off and keep it out of reach.
Reduce your caffeine hit
Have your last coffee no later than 3pm. This will allow the affects to wear off by bed time and let you settle easier.
Get up really early for a week – really early. Set your alarm for 5am and force yourself to get up at this time for a full week. After ‘hell week’ set your alarm back to your new early morning time at around 7:30am and suddenly it won’t feel bad at all.
Get up and go
If you’re setting your alarm there’s no point in waking up at 6am and then nodding off again. At the first sound of your alarm; get up, turn the light on, and splash some cold water on your face – you’ll thank yourself later.
Hopefully after reading this you’re inspired to start getting up earlier and being one of those ‘morning people’. You never know, you may even start going for runs at 6:30am and post ‘Feeling Fresh’ pictures of yourself in your gym gear on Instagram!

I have been living in Brickworks about 7 months. Brickworks is a great place to live in. The location is really convenient (close to city center, good public transportation, near the supermarket and so on...). The buildings are pretty new (well maintained and very clean) it also offers study rooms, cinema room, gym, roof top party room and terrace. There are a lot of common areas for entertainment (PlayStation, Pool, table tennis...). Additionally, free coffee and tea services are amazing!
Brickworks team all of them are AWESOME. They are always up for helping... I highly recommend the Brickworks for people who need a place to call home... Thanks for everything.
Living at The Junxion has been a very homely experience for me, as from moving in on my first year of university I was a little nervous about living on my own so far away from my home in Liverpool; but that all change once I moved into my new room, as the buildings interior design gives off such a relaxing vibe that will allow you to study in peace. Although the staff in the building where so very comforting to speak to and will offer guidance on pretty much anything, as they are always there to help. Other than that I would highly recommend The Junxion to anyone as I am currently a second year living with my friend at The Junxion and I couldn’t feel more at home.
Excelente ubicacion, atencion y servicio. Muy cuidado todo, las recepcionistas siempre ayudando y dando atencion. Lo recomiendo.
I loved it there !
Brickworks is a great home for whoever comes to live in Dublin for a while.
The friendliness of the staff along with the welcoming environment make for a great place to live. When I first entered the room, it felt like a hotel room : comfortable, modern and very liveable.
The neighborhood is as calm as it gets and you get to the most animated streets in 15mn.
The sunset view on the rooftop is the cherry on the cake.
Searched for loads of student accommodation before I found this gem amongst the rest. Really nice sizeable apartments in a great student busy location. Would highly recommend Mezzino.
I had an excellent experience living in Brickworks during the last year in Dublin! All the staff members were always very friendly and did everything they could to make people feel welcome and we had a very good atmosphere among the residents. The flats themselves were comfortable and provided excellent living and working space, and the proximity to the city centre means you can experience the Dublin atmosphere. I have met many people and friends that I will take with me for life. If I were to live in Dublin, I would not hesitate to live in Brickworks again, it really was a great place to live!
