Read this if you find it hard to leave your bed every morning.
re you a self-proclaimed night owl? Do you want to change that? Well, maybe you don’t want to, but you probably should.
Being a morning person is great because it helps you start your day right and you will not be perpetually grumpy. Here are three fail-proof tips on how you can become a morning person.
1. Sleep earlier
Sorry, folks! If you want to be a morning person, you have to start sleeping earlier.
It is not rocket science – if you are only getting five to six hours of sleep every night, you will find it hard to wake up early because you are always too tired. If the thought of sleeping earlier makes you hit the sack even later than usual, check out this list of tips to help you sleep earlier.
2. The five minute method
Baby steps are always the key to starting a new routine.
Start with the five minute method. If you have to be up at 8am, set your alarm at 7.55am for a few days. At least it’s five minutes earlier, and not five hours!
Once you get used to waking up five minutes earlier, move on to 7.50am. Keep adjusting the minutes till you find a timing that lets you relax for a bit before you start your day. Easy.
3. The reward system
Now that you are waking up earlier, you should have some extra time in the morning.
Reward yourself by doing something fun or that you like in the morning. Since you woke up early, you deserve a treat. This can come in the form of a leisurely breakfast, or watching the latest episode of Grey’s Anatomy (Actually, maybe not. That will just make you sad).
Just do something that you enjoy so that you can feel better about having to tumble out of bed earlier then required.
So, there you have it! If you keep practising these tips, you will soon find that the quiet pockets of time you have created in the morning are quite pleasant.
