Sometimes, getting out of bed in the morning might seem impossible – we’ve all been there!
Whether you’re an early riser or a late morning snoozer, even the best of us of us struggle to get of bed.
If you aren’t naturally a morning person but would like to be – don’t lose hope! Even if you’re a night owl, it really is possible to become a morning person.
We’re rounded up some of our favourite tips to help you become less trigger happy with that snooze button…
15 Minutes Earlier You Say?
It might seem obvious, but the first thing to do in order to wake up earlier is to go to bed earlier. Why not set yourself a challenge this week to go to bed 15 minutes earlier each night? If you repeat this overtime, you may see yourself falling asleep by up to 2 hours earlier.
No Time for That Snooze Fest
Chances are, even if you stay-up late, you will still have to get up early for work. So when your alarm goes off in the morning, don’t hit the snooze button straight away – instead, jump out of bed.
Giving yourself more time in the morning equals less rushing around, which equals less stress and a better mood – win, win.
If you experience trouble just waking up in the morning, the thought of hitting the gym might seem like too much to handle.
But don’t dismiss the idea straight away. The release of endorphins your body produces during a workout will leave you feeling happier and much more alert. Plus, working out in the morning helps you to fall asleep quicker at night.
Pick a Bedtime and Stick to It
The condition of your body is so dependent on the amount of sleep you get each night. With this in mind, if you want to feel refreshed and ready for the day ahead when you wake up in the morning, you’ve got to get between 7-8 hours of sleep a night.
So if you’re planning to get up at 6:30, make it a point to be in bed by 10:30 or 11:00 – and then stick with it! You’ll be surprised at how quickly you will reap the benefits – both physically and mentally.
You will never want to go back to the days of staying up until 2am just to waste your beautiful morning sleeping.
