I struggle with waking up early in the morning. With my schedule I often am up a little later at night. The key to making it easier to wake up in the morning is a combination of things. It’s not always easy but if you are looking to make a change in your schedule, or just want to feel better and more productive with your day try incorporating these steps into your daily lifestyle.
Watch your diet as well as the caffeine intake
Slow down on the caffeine intake in the later hours of the day. As well watching the heavier foods that may affect the way you sleep and how much sleep you get. You want to be fully rested so you can wake up earlier and refreshed.
Set a schedule to wake up as well as sleep
Of course, set an alarm. Training your body into the pattern of waking up earlier can be a process so you must get yourself used to that certain time. Eventually it will become more natural to you. Also go to sleep around the same time every night as well.
Do something you enjoy
I like to wake up and do something I enjoy for a little while before the day starts. Putting my fresh energy and clear mind to something is really relaxing and it allows more open mindedness throughout the day in opinion.
I find that having a bottle of water right there when you wake up helps. A little hydration refreshes you and makes you feel more awake. Also, you will get up and use the restroom instead of staying in bed.
Let the light in
Getting up and opening the curtains and blinds helps in the waking up process. If there is natural light coming in, you will want to get more active and get up and enjoy the beauty that the day has to offer.
