Are you the sort of person that leaps out of bed every morning, full of motivation, and ready to welcome the new day and all it brings? No? Well, that’s OK because not everybody is. In fact, it pretty easy to stay snuggled up in your duvet, and snooze that alarm clock. Especially when it’s cold and dark outside. But there are a few things that you can do to make getting up in the morning a little easier. Read on to find out more.
So the number one thing you can do is to expose yourself to blue light in the morning. Conveniently that is the stuff that your mobile phone puts out if it’s not on the ‘night shift.’ In fact, the whole idea of night shift is to remove the blue light, so you don’t have trouble falling asleep, so just reserves it to help you get up in the morning!
I’m sure there won’t be too many objections about checking your phone first thing either! But you might want to steer clear of social media at this early time. As it best not to post or comment when you have woken up yet. Instead, why not catch up on current events and learn what’s trending today, on news sites instead?
Get to bed at a decent time
Yup, unfortunately, getting to be early is important in being able to get up. It’s best if you set yourself a regular bedtime that allows you to have at least 7-9 hours sleep. This might seem like a lot, but we are designed to get that much sleep a night and need it to function normally.
Also getting into a regular sleep pattern can help you manage your time better. This is because you know when you will need to do things throughout the evening to get them done in time and have enough time that is just for you to chill out in.
Another awesome way of making it a lot easier to get out of bed in the morning is to use a simulated dawn light. This area usually attached to special clocks which signal the light to turn on gradually mirroring the sunlight at dawn. Using light like these can help your body wake up in a more natural and gentle way.
Although it also now possible to get smart ones that fit into normal light sockets, that will also perform this function. You just need to program them to do this using your phone.
Lastly, a great way of raising your motivation to get up in the morning is to make sure that you have a nice healthy breakfast to look forward. There really is no need to eat some awful fiber flakes that taste like reconstituted doormat anymore!
In fact, there are plenty of super easy and quick recipes that you can even make in advance for a nutritious breakfast.
For example, why not try clean eating brownies. Or what about this recipe where you can make your very own granola? Now if that doesn’t get you out of bed in the morning, I don’t know what will!
