Train Yourself To Wake Up In The Morning

Can't Wake Up In The Morning? We Can Help!



Do you have a hard time waking up in the morning? I believe it was Ben Franklin who said;

"Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise."

I am pretty sure this works for women too! Anyway, I am not wealthy or wise, but I do feel better when I get up early in the morning, and I feel good when I have to be somewhere in the morning and get up in time to do the things I need to do and to get ready, without running around like the proverbial chicken (with his head cut off).

Now don't feel like you are alone with your issue of having problems getting up in the morning. Millions of people around the world struggle with this, and believe it or not, I was one of them until I started using some of the tips I'm going to share with you in this article. Hopefully, some of these tips will work for you, and you can start waking up on time and feeling your best. Imagine what you could do if you could wake up an hour earlier every day?

Basic first steps to waking up in the morning

1. The first and most important tip is to get a good nights sleep. That doesn't necessarily mean a lot of sleep but quality sleep with no distractions, a comfortable bed, and comfortable clothing.

2. Do something active as soon as your alarm goes off whether it is standing up, drinking a glass of water or getting in the shower.

3. Set your alarm clock out of arms reach, It becomes much harder to hit snooze if you can't reach the alarm. Check out this funny article about an alarm clock that every time you hit snooze you donate money to your most hated charity

4. Have a reason for waking up early if not it will be hard to find motivation to wake up.

Have A Good Reason To Get Up In The Morning

What's your passion? What gets you excited? It may sound simplistic, but the answers to these questions are great motivators to wake up in the morning. You might not be excited about going to work or school, but if you're into a craft, or exercise, or even video games, why not wake up 30 minutes early and work on that activity before you start working on things you don't want to do?

I don't know about you, but I am certainly not motivated to rise and shine if I am facing a day filled with things I don't want to do. I happen to be into exercise and a little gaming here and there, so I try to get up earlier than I need to so I can do some FUN things before I tackle the unpleasant stuff. If you work a little at this, you can trick your mind into putting aside thinking about tasks you're dreading, and just thinking about getting up to have a little fun. Get really good at it, and every day is a weekend! Okay, sort of...

Alarm clock on wheels for the real heavy sleeper

Practice waking up

Don't laugh this really works

If you want to be good at anything in life you have to practice and waking up is not exception. What do I mean by practice waking up? This is what you need to do. Setup your room or wherever you sleep just like it would be in the morning, put on the clothes that you normally sleep in and set your alarm clock for a couple minutes from now. Then crawl in bed, close your eyes like you are going to sleep and wait for the alarm to go off. As soon as it goes off sit up and get out of bed. Do this several times to get your body used to getting up as soon as it hears the alarm. I know this sounds goofy but it works.

The Sonic Boom Alarm Clock - For Those That Need A Marching Band To Wake Them Up!

Do you know the difference between a heavy sleeper and a HEAVY sleeper? For those of you who think the only difference between the two in the last sentence is the all caps, well, you have never met MRS. Kimark421 (My better half). She's a little better than she used to be, but unfortunately the "used to be" her could sleep through the Ohio State marching band performing in our bedroom.

So, what do we do when she needs to wake up and I am not there to shove her out of bed? Well, we have the "Sonic Boom Alarm Clock". Not only is this alarm clock LOUD, it shakes the bed too. I am sure there are folks out there that are heavier sleepers than the missus, but I am convinced that you would have to be in a coma for the Sonic Boom Clock to not work on you.

Absolutly sleeping in is for slackers

anonymous 3 years ago

yes


anonymous 3 years ago

yes


anonymous 3 years ago

early is relevant; i.e if I have to roll out of bed and run out the door.. not successful, and time of day is of no consequence. I happen to work at a job that is a day job, so 'early' means I have taken care of myself and I am prepared. That is my struggle.


anonymous 3 years ago

Either/or works, I suppose, as long as you expend your time on the activity you want accomplished at any hours, equally. My 'gut' feeling tells me: "Absolutely sleeping in is for slackers", yet I'm not fully sold on that estimate. All in all, it's hard telling.

Incidentally, the word "Absolutely" in the sentence "Absolutely sleeping in is for slackers", is misspelled. You've inconvenienced me with your silly questions, so there. =P


anonymous 3 years ago

i guess i have school


anonymous 3 years ago

I completely believe that waking up early is better. My problem is I am a terrible sleeper and by the time morning comes I am finally getting good rest so getting ut of bed is a STRUGGLE o matter what is ahead of me!


meganst 3 years ago

Yes, I find that waking up early is essential for success. However, I am not a morning person myself, so I find it essential to train myself to wake up early in the morning :)

yes

Only because it is before the kids can get to me.

Yep, you do.

Its the natural clock of society so it helps waking up early. Sleeping in tends to put you on a counter clock with everyone else and life in general, but don't get me wrong, sleeping is refreshing and once in a while sleeping in is great.

MY POINT OF VIEW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! really to be known.

yeah, absolutely because waking early in the morning makes us feel good as all of us know though it is difficult.Our brain takes a long time to restore all its powers which is utilized during the day .The sleep hours may differ for everyone.Some may have a heavy physical work and some may give work only to their brain a lot.But everyone should at least, lie on your bed compulsory for 8 hours.In this 8 hours ,it is the brain who decides your sleep.Don't worry if u don't get it.If u are not getting sleep it is because of your work.So after 8 hours of sleep when u wake up u feel brilliant .WAKE , GET SOME FRESH AIR , DO EXERCISE FEEL GOOD.Mostly,in the early morning u get more memory power which makes your day successful and as the day becomes successful your life becomes more sweeeeeeeeeeeet and successful.


anonymous 4 years ago

I think it's important to get the most out of your day. It's not so much what time you get up in the morning but, being on time for the things you have scheduled in your life and accomplishing them. However, being up early in the am gives you and an advantage.Bing prepared the night before even more so.


anonymous 4 years ago

I say yes, because if you wake up late (at least this is what happens to me) i am rushing to finish up and get ou the door, get all my stuff together, make it on time. Then I end uo forgetting something and either I needed it really bad or wanted it really bad and then either way I am mad or irritated. In order to be successful you need to be (at least I believe) you need to be organized, on time, planned, prepared, ready to take chances and risks in order to get where you want to go...

    No way! Waking up is for old people I can get just as much done at night

    HappyTom LM 3 years ago from Switzerland/Ecuador

    That depends very much. But of course when you wake up every day at 11.....

    I think a good time is 8. Not too early not too late.... just right I think :)

    Put it this way. If I was successful person,and knew that get up five o clock in the morning will boost my bank account I would be up and running quarter to every day inc. Sundays.


    audrey07 4 years ago

    I thin it depends on whether you are a morning person or a night owl. Some people are more productive in the morning while others work better at night. So, I think there is no hard and fast rule on this one.


    anonymous 4 years ago

    No


    anonymous 4 years ago

    depends on what you consider early? cause what's thepoint getting up so damn early just wait till 11 you got plenty of day left and won't be tired till late evening, not headed to bed with the sin


    anonymous 4 years ago

    Well, it's not for old people. But I feel like if I have a lot to do, I should wake up early.


    anonymous 4 years ago

    I get more done at night and sleep in !

    i feel like when i wake up early the day just drags on and on and on...

    And sorry,,,, It does depend on people's life style too I am also a business women, mom, fiancé/wife nearly a wife so I look after my hubby to be, my daughter, and a business well and then Squidoo :) which I adore. I hate sleeping in until 11am sometimes 12 or very rare for me 1pm but you can't bare to understand if you not going through bad neighbours. I complained to them, to landlords/council and there aint a thing you can do event he police! It exausting.


    anonymous 4 years ago

    I have had six years of awful neighbours, and bad landlords who wont have words with them. I and my daughter have no sleep for six years. When she was a baby its fine and I understand that because our neighbours not being quite late at night and I have had five several different neighbours. At one point I lived in my last flat and my landlord had also the flat bellow who some one occupied and they were a vile!!! They were really loud from around 6pm right through until the next morning. Kept me and my daughter up all night. They even had the oradasity to complain about my daughter's noise in the DAY! oh my days and considering I had been complaining to my landlord for MONTHS, from December 2011 - around May 2012! about their constant loud baby cries yes their baby cries, they were adults.. (doesn't bother me in day) but I do think they had slight disabilities though he worked she went to college and they seemed not to be that bad that they did not understand what they were doing wasn't fare on me and my family. He would slam doors and shout at his mrs 12am, 1am when ever. They have a laugh from late at night through to 5am underneath us and I got so angry because he complained about US, but they were vile and selfish so in the end I found out the womens name who had helped get them the flat and she got it because she had told my landlord to have words with me and col but he would not tell this women about the rubbish life we were having thanks to them. I used to be a great sleeper and wake up around 9am with out any alarm. I found it easy to get up. I have also found through lack of sleep I pick!!! So I've piled 2 stones on and now have to get this off. Its not my age Im still only young it is having bad neighbours for this amount of years. Six years is long time and its not always easy to get routines back. I fought for my routine and my childs. I also have lost mom in august, and have an ex from hell who is an abuser so really I did not need tha on top but I will survive with this wonderful Lens.!!

      Get rid of coffee to help wake up in the morning
      Get rid of coffee to help wake up in the morning

      Coffee and how it affects your sleep

      Do you drink coffee first thing in the morning to wake up? Well you may be surprised to find out that your morning cup of joe may be the reason your not sleeping well at night. Caffeine can stay in your blood for over 12 hours and keep your body from getting the quality nights sleep it need. If you want to do a little experiment try not drinking coffee for one week and see if you wake feeling better by the end of the week. I know it sounds crazy a whole week without coffee but give it a try you'll be glad you did.

      We actually have two alarm clocks. One is in the bedroom, but it's placed across the room from the bed, so we have to get up to turn it off. And just in case we end up back in the bed, there's another alarm clock in the next room.

      I tried putting the alarm clock across the room. That worked at first but then I started getting up, turning it off and going back to bed. The distractions in the night are the problem for me but if I try earplugs, then I can't hear the alarm. I'm doomed. :)

      I have discovered this recently and it works for me an absolute treat. I have an electric heater connected to a plug-in timer. I programme the heater to come on at maximum about 30 mins before I want to get up. By the time I need to get up my room is like sauna and I don't feel like staying in my bed at all. I put on my track-suit and go out for my run. I had to share this with some people because it's really helped me.

I also used to remember a cartoon with the pink panther destroying an alarm clock with a hammer whenever I heard the alarm clock and I had to get up. Fortunately, now I donât need to wake up early in the morning; I can follow my own program. Wish I had found your lens when I was young! Blessed.

      You have to set goals and really tell yourself you must get up and accomplish it. Routine and training that internal clock is also crucial. If you can't seem to manage it for whatever reason, seek help from friends or relatives to influence and pressure the situation enough to get back on track.

        How lack of sleep affects your health

        Did you know that the amount of sleep you get at night can affect your health? Getting less than 7 hours a night of sleep greatly increases your risk of serious disease and colds but getting more than 8 hours a night disrupts blood sugar levels increasing your chance of getting type 2 diabetes. These are the more serious factors but of course you also have to think about sleepiness, lack of production and low energy levels. I guess what I am trying to say is that it is best to get 7-8 hours of sleep a night keep your body and mind healthy.

        I just got the yawns, I must need to get more sleep.

        Personally know people who wake up at a certain time every morning on their own,

        Waking up early earns me more daylight time so I highly recommend it too! These are excellent tips and I agree with you about coffee. I now drink green tea in the morning and I feel so much more refreshed throughout the day than I did when I drank coffee.

        I read about a study where night owls tend to be the ones with higher IQs... but I've also read those that wake early tend to be more productive.

        Sleep is very important, unless we have proper sleep, otherwise it would be a struggle to wake up early in the morning, that will lead to poor health and memory lost.

        I think I will try the drinking a glass of water first thing to see if that will help. I noticed when I actually leave my room and rub water on my face and eyes I feel more alert, but I'm not in the habit of leaving my room yet. Maybe a glass of water next to my bed will allow me to do this and get me up.

        Your suggestions are quite helpful. I read your lens only because waking up early always was a problem in my life. I had many adventures trying to find smart excuses for delaying again, or trying to find ways to hide the fact that I was late again.

        Great lens - I've trained myself recently to wake up much earlier than I used to, now I wake up when I want to 9/10 of the time. Blessed by a SquidAngel!

        I don't think that I have ever had that problem for some reason. If anything, I will wake up a good half hour before I need to be up. Sometimes I wish I could ignore it.

        I was married to a military man. Getting up early comes with the job. However, I have never had to use an alarm clock. It's funny. I just seem to know when to get up, whether I am getting up at 5:00am or 10:00am. Don't ask me how, I seem to have some sort of internal clock that tells me when it is the time that I am planning to get up.

        I try to get up early TOMORROW.

        When I had to get up at 4:30 A.M., that was a real problem. Now I have the luxury to get up when I want, no alarm.

        Smart, well-informed lens. Something to consider is first sleep and second sleep. Some of us get up after only a few hours, go about our business, then return for another sleep. It keeps you refreshed. And it's not just alertness that matters. Your body schedules biological activities for times when you are not active. You have to give it time for those those things or we get that odd feeling of being out of synch and dragging while our rhythms try to make up for rest lost.

        Sunlight alarm clocks are the best way to wake up, or just waking to the rising sun. Some people wake up at 2AM to get some thinking done while the world is quiet, then back to sleep again.

        I have no problems getting out of bed - I just need to shift the 1hr of zombie mode after I do! A bear with a very sore head has nothing on me in the morning before I get going! lol
