How To Love Waking Up Early and Feel Great All Day Long

"How do I wake up early and enjoy it?"

"I have the hardest time waking up early in the morning."

"I need to get up early every day. How can I make the most of it?"

"I'm a total tornado in the morning. I need a little guidance."

Do you hate waking up in the morning?

Do you love your snooze button a little too much?

If you're like most people, everything has to go perfectly in the morning for you to be on time and relatively stress free.

However, how often does that actually happen?

”¦ALMOST NEVER.

Your mornings are more like a horror movie.

Well, I'm here to change that.

My goal is to give you a little extra time in the morning so that your whole day will be a whole lot better.

A Better Morning = A Better Rest of the Day

Follow this simple process to get up early and feel great all day.

Your Wake-Up Time.

The easiest way is to change your wake-up time gradually. Our bodies become very accustomed to getting up at the same time every day.

  • Every 3 days, set your alarm another 15 minutes earlier. That schedule might seem a little slow, but it works.
  • If you try to get up an hour earlier immediately, the odds of maintaining that schedule are pretty bleak.

 

Getting Up.

Follow these three steps each morning to actually get up. Maybe you made it several days and you're now getting up 45 minutes earlier. That's awesome! But you might find that you're starting to hit snooze again and wasting the extra time you've created.

  • Step #1: Get really excited the night before. Before getting into bed each night, think of one thing to do when you get up that really appeals to you. Maybe there's something you'd like to read or maybe you'd like to take a walk each morning.
  • Step #2: Put your alarm on the other side of the room. When the alarm is buzzing, it's much harder to sleep. You also can't hit the snooze button without getting up. If you ignore the alarm, your partner and children will probably let you know about it in no uncertain terms.
  • Step #3: Jump out of bed immediately and go to the bathroom. Wash your face and brush your teeth. You'll be much less likely to return to bed after hitting the bathroom and starting your routine.
  • The key is to take control of your thoughts. If you think to yourself, "I'm getting up now," you'll be surprised to find yourself really getting up. If you think, "Just 5 more minutes," you know what will happen.

 

Your Plan.

Have a plan for what you're going to do when you get up. Avoid wasting time by flopping in front of the TV or getting online. There are many more productive options.

  • Everyone is dehydrated first thing in the morning, so get a nice, tall glass of water. You'll feel so much better after rehydrating.
  • If you exercise, even for 10 minutes, it will help you wake up and feel better.
  • Have a cup of tea or coffee before you leave for work. You can even take it to go!

 

Going To Bed.

Go to bed earlier. It only makes sense that if you're getting up earlier, you need to either go to bed earlier or take a nap each day. Try to get at least 7 hours of sleep each night.

 

That's it!

Follow this super simple process to get up early and feel great.

It might take a few weeks before it becomes habit, but you can do it!

You will find that the extra time you give yourself in the morning really reduces your anxiety and stress.

You'll also find it's easier to get up because you're motivated to do something you enjoy.
