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!
Find student accommodation
Where do you want to go?
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.
Highly recommend Mezzino Student living, it’s furnished to a high standard and is in the heart of the student area. Has very helpful staff and it’s well run in the office.
I moved to Mayfair Court 3 years ago and we love it here. My apartment is spacious and enlightened by large windows facing Wilmslow road. Commons, including a flourishing inner garden are well kept. Staff are friendly and always there to help, and the community is diverse. Location is very convenient. There’s a bus stop at the foot of the building, a supermarket across the street, Bodey Medical Centre behind the supermarket, and plenty of restaurants and pubs around. I'm happy to call this place our home while in Manchester.
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.
For a very spacious space with great amenities, the price is very mucb affordable. Good views and great support staff to help out at anytime of the day.
Millstone is a brilliant place to live, Ive just book for my 3rd year. The staff are kind and caring. I have love living at Millstone as it has given me independence and a bigger family.
