Some people are morning people – bouncing out of bed before the sun has even shown its face and ticking eight things off their to-do list before breakfast. Other people, less so. But whether you’re turning on the coffee machine while you’re still mid-dream, or posting sweaty gym selfies with the caption ‘Rise and grind!’, we’ve got your AM covered…
You can’t function without caffeine
Hot water with lemon might be fine for some people, but not for you. You need caffeine – and not in that ironic way that people say they ‘need’ a twelfth pair of black Nikes, it’s an actual need. The barista is best, but you always keep instant in the house, because experience has taught you that sometimes desperate times call for desperate measures.

It’s 7am and you’ve already burned 9000 calories
Your alarm wakes you up at the crack of dawn (seriously, birds aren’t even up yet), and before most of us would have rubbed the sleep from our eyes, you’re heading out the door with a bottle full of H2O and some flash new workout gear, ready to get sweaty. You know scrolling Insta for fitspo from the comfort of your doona won’t give you the endorphin hit you need.
Your business never sleeps
You crash every night with your phone by your side, because the moment you wake up, there are emails to be checked and to-do lists to be conquered. You enjoy having your brekkie al desko, with your laptop firing and a napkin protecting your freshly ironed shirt from any of the scrambled egg you picked up on the way into the office.
You meditate ’til you’re zen AF
You read somewhere that Gisele Bündchen meditates, and if it’s good enough for Gisele… So now every morning you get up, roll out your yoga mat, light a candle, press play on some soothing rainforest sounds and spend 20 minutes getting super calm. (And quietly praying it won’t all be undone by the special brand of hell that is peak-hour traffic.)
Face it, you’re a serial snoozer
We get it, bed is comfy – they design them that way. Which is why every morning you somehow find yourself going from a 7AM wake-up call (enough time to shower, wash your hair, pick out a killer outfit and chow down a nutritiously balanced breakfast) to an 8.56AM wake-up call (enough time to brush your teeth, but not your hair, and grab a granola bar).
