Many people don’t know how to wake up in the morning, I used to be like this as well. But there are many tips and tricks that will make it easier to wake up in the morning.
First of all, I want to say that self-discipline is hugely important when it comes to waking up. The first and DEFINITELY most important part is to go to get enough sleep, go to bed at the same time every night, and for an adult, you should get between 6,5 and 8 hours of sleep (this varies from person to person).
Wake up gently and smart.
By using a wake-up light you will wake up feeling more energized and ready for the new day. The wake-up light will be lighting up your room and play either a comfortable wake-up tune or the radio on your preferred volume. Wake up lights are proven to have health benefits, they work by increasing the level of Cortisol and decreasing the level of Melatonin in your brain so that you become more awake in the morning.
Get things ready the night before.
Find the clothes that you are going to wear and take them out of the closet so that you can just simply put them on in the morning. If you are going to school, find the right books for tomorrow and have them ready in your bag. Make lunch ready and put it in the refrigerator. One thing that I personally always do is to keep a few bottles of water in the refrigerator so that you always have cold and refreshing water in the morning.
Do something active with your body every day
Go for a walk, take a ride on your bicycle, go swimming, do push-ups, sit-ups, pull-ups and the list goes on.. Just be active during the day, this makes you more confident and at the same time makes it easier to fall asleep at night.
Do not eat big meals after 9 in the evening
The body uses much energy in metabolism, and this makes for bad sleep if your body works all night long converting the food into energy also keep away from caffeine drinks after 6 pm.
Keep yourself hydrated, drink at least 2 liters of water every day. And don’t go to bed thirsty.
Keep your window slightly open
this lets fresh and cool air enter your room while taking the bad, c02 filled air out of your room.
Keep your sheets fresh.
Do not use your sheets for long periods of time without changing them. I would recommend that you change them at least once a week, personally I change mine every Sunday, no matter what. If I feel sick some days and maybe sweat one night I change them. Fresh sheets are good for you and bad for the bed bugs.
Drink water in the morning.
Keep a glass or bottle of water at your nightstand, and drink from it once you wake up. This will kick-start your metabolism and make you feel more awake, the colder the drink, the better!
Practice getting out of bed!
It sounds a little obscure but try it. Find some time in the day, go to bed and set the alarm clock to go off in 5 minutes, then try to sleep, or at least relax with your eyes shut. When the alarm clock goes off, turn it off and get out of the bed, put on your clothes, and go to the kitchen/bathroom, wherever you would go on a normal day, then repeat until it really sticks! I say this because ”practice makes masters” if you make it so that once the alarm goes off, you get out of bed is your second nature, you will have an easy time waking up.
Try to think of the self-discipline!
And get up right away when your alarm clock goes off.
These are all tricks that make for better sleep and for a person that doesn’t know how to wake up in the morning they would help by bringing stability to both your body and your sleep schedule. Just remember SELF DISCIPLINE go to bed and get enough sleep! I would also recommend that you take a look at a wake-up light, I use the Philips hf3485 myself and I enjoy waking up from light, instead of annoying noise.
