5 Tips For a Productive Morning Before Law School/University

5 Tips For a Productive Morning Before Law School/University

Now that the days are slowly becoming shorter and shorter, I find waking up early in the morning quite a struggle. Realizing it’s still dark outside while your lectures start in an hour sucks. Still, there are some ways to have a productive morning before law school/university during the Fall. In this blogpost I’m sharing 5 tips for having a productive morning, even if you’re not a morning person (like me). After applying these tips, you’ll definitely become that early morning goalgetter!



Unfortunately you can’t go around it: when you want to have a productive morning before law school, you have to wake up early. I’m not a morning person, but I am very productive in the mornings. I try to wake up every morning (even in the weekends) between 6.30-8.00 AM. It just depends on how busy I am that day or how tired I feel.


A little app that helped me out when it comes to waking up and sticking to my sleeping schedule is the Sleep Cycle App on my iPhone 7. This app tracks your sleeping pattern and let’s you wake up when your body is already almost awake. It’s an intelligent alarm clock that analyzes your sleep and wakes you in the lightest sleep phase – the natural way to wake up feeling rested and relaxed. It’s a paid app, but I definitely recommend it. You can download it here.

This is my secret (if you can even call it one). Even if you have classes at 9 AM, try to always fit in some homework before the lecture starts. It doesn’t matter if it’s even a small amount of work, just try to do something. I usually like to do some reading (in bed!) or work a bit on one of my research papers.


Another very important thing for having a productive morning before law school/uni is some good coffee and a healthy breakfast. Your body needs fuel to be productive! My favorite type of coffee is almond ice coffee (I show the recipe in My Morning Routine For Law School/University video down below) and I love to eat a filling salad for breakfast. This keeps me going for a long period of time!



Last, but not least, find a morning routine that works for you. Some people can wake up super early and get half of their work done before 1 PM. If you’re not one of those people: it’s okay. Just try to wake up as early as you can and do as much as you can. Even if you only read 5 pages – at least it’s something. I also made a video about my morning routine for law school/university. Hopefully it can give you some inspiration to have a productive morning before law school as well. I wake up between 6.30-8.00 AM and I have lectures usually at 11 AM if you’re wondering.

    Vandaag ging ik dan pas om 10 uur mijn bed uit, omdat ik gisteren niet in slaap kon komen maar meestal sta ik dan wel om 9 uur of half 10 op. Dan pak ik een ontbijtje, werk wat aan mijn blog en soms werk ik dan ook wel aan wat huiswerk. Ik hou van productieve ochtenden :)

    I usually wake up in the morning tired from the previous day. But, still I make some coffee and head down to college library. There I read assisgnments and prepare for class.
    With this blog post, I’m going to add a healthy breakfast and definately going to try the almond ice coffee.
