How can you recognize a good day?
Well, it starts with a successful morning routine in the early hours.
Which lets you welcome the day in a great mood, get energized, plan out the rest of it and be productive.
This sounds good. And it’s totally achievable. But it won’t work unless you get up early.
And sometimes, even if you went to bed at the right time, slept well, set an alarm and have your day planned, you can still struggle with waking up.
So here are some tips that can make it easier for you to actually leave bed when you don’t really want to:
7 Steps to Get Out of Bed Right Away
1. Put your alarm clock away from your bed.
This way you’ll have to get up and go get it;
2. Do something right away.
By doing this your brain will realize the day has started and won’t make you go back to bed.
Here’s what you can do:
– turn on the lights
– go to the bathroom
– brush your teeth
– make your bed
– drink water
– make coffee
– change your clothes;
3. Have something to look forward to.
Starting the day with a purpose gives you a reason to want to get up, otherwise you’ll easily stay in bed till noon.
The thing you’ll be waiting for may be your morning routine, going to the gym, doing something fun, getting ready and being fresh for a meeting you have later in the day;
4. Get enough sleep.
Sometimes even if you slept well, waking up can be a nightmare. But still, it’s important to go to bed early so that you can get enough sleep, and to eliminate all the distractions like lights, devices that make sounds, people coming in, etc.
This way you’ll sleep well and enough;
5. Accept it as a challenge to wake up right away.
That’s a great way to practice your willpower and make it stronger;
6. Don’t lie in bed for ‘just 5 more minutes’.
Let’s be realistic, it’s never really 5;
7. Know your why.
If you want to do this hard task, you must have a reason. Maybe you want to have a successful morning routine, have an hour or two for yourself, get some stuff done, go to work on time, or else.
Make your ‘why’ crystal clear and remind yourself of it, keep your goals in mind;
I think all of these are easy enough for you to try them right away.
They are little things to do that will increase your chances of getting up early, starting the day fresh and being productive and proud of yourself.
5 Quick and Easy Morning Habits Once You Get Out of Bed
Waking up early is one way to win the day by kickstarting it. But how you spend your morning is equally important.
The routine you’ve created can include things like working out, meditation, healthy breakfast, doing some focused work on your business idea, preparing for the day, writing or reading, and other successful and productive activities. But there are some useful changes you can make to take things to the next level.
Here are some suggestions on how to improve your morning ritual for better results:
You may have already built great morning habits, but are you sure you can’t perform better?
Some of the things you’re doing first thing in the morning may be time-wasting, while others may be quite productive and it would be better if you focus more on them.
You can know that by writing down the things you do, how long each takes, how you feel after that, etc.
Tracking is a powerful tool that helps you analyze how you spend your time and become more efficient.
2. Get moving.
You’re just waking up but that doesn’t mean you should be lazy.
Get up with the first alarm and start doing stuff. That’s a great way to wake up your brain and jumpstart the day.
That can happen by taking action right after you open your eyes. Go to the bathroom, brush your teeth, take a shower, get dressed, stretch, or else. Just get moving.
3. Add more activities.
There’s always more stuff you can add to upgrade your morning routine.
Here I’ve listed 36 morning habits that are great for the first part of the day.
4. Prepare the night before.
Hack your morning ritual by getting ready in the evening. Make a to-do list and include all the things that need to get done tomorrow, define which are most important and try to decide what to start with first thing in the morning.
Also, get your clothes ready. Do the dishes now so that they aren’t the first thing you see when you wake up.
All this will save you time and unnecessary worries and will let you enjoy your morning and make the most of it.
5. Have a purpose.
Waking up early is the difficult part. But the best advice is to go to bed with the intention to raise early.
Make these 5 changes to upgrade your morning routine and you’ll feel like a new person.
