Updated on March 23, 2018

Fitness is one of my interests, along with enjoying sports. I hope to help other people discover how beautiful life is.

Getting up in the morning sometimes is very challenging, especially for those who need to catch a bus, subway or a train in order to go to school, university or work. You get up and realize a new day is started and you are so tired you would like to lay in bed a minute, two minutes, five minutes more, before realizing it is going getting late and you still have to prepare yourself, have breakfast and go out of home. Is getting up early really challenging for you? Luckily this can be solved: everyone could get up in the morning completely refreshed just by following some simple tips.

Waking up and cathing the bus in the morning in order to go work, especially in the winter season when sky is still not so much enlighted, may be really difficult for people used to get up late.

Are Your Sleeping Habits Good?

Drinking litres of coffee every morning in order to not fall asleep? Maybe is time to wake up better!

If you do not sleep enough time, you are surely exposed to many problems and this would not help you so much getting up early happy and ready to start a new day. Despite this is true, actually this is not the main reason why many people find getting up early so challenging: at the end there are people who can get up early completely refreshed even after having spent night with their friends (unless they are doing this every night), so the amount of hours you are sleeping does not really make you feel more or less tired the morning after.

Your alarm is your best friend... and your worst enemy!

Do you always snooze your alarm before getting up?

See results

If you need to wake up in the morning, setting an alarm is the best solution in order to be sure to get up in time. Most people also use to ask for another person who usually gets up earlier to wake up them, but all these situations have one thing in common: your sleeping is brusquely stopped. Our brain is made to be active also when we sleep, even if it has reduced activity: one of these activities consists in being able to recognize sound, and that is the reason why we wake up when our alarm is ringing. The real problem of alarms ringing or people who shout your name is that these methods actually are abrupt for our brain and these sounds are parsed as a signal of warning. This results in a bad waking up experience. Instead, waking up with more calm and gradual solutions will lead you to a better experience, so that you will feel much more refreshed when you get up.

Consider a light alarm or a vibrating smartwatch or band

Light alarms wake you up by gradually enlightening your room, instead of playing abrupt sounds. This simulates sunrise and let our body to gradually adapt to the fact day is arriving and it needs to wake up. Another good method to wake up is by using our smartwatch or fit band alarm, assuming it is working by vibrating: vibrations are really low and they are able to wake you in a very soft way.

Your ringing alarm is a good secondary way to wake up!

While light and vibrating alarms are good in order to get up easily, ringing alarms should be still kept as a secondary alarm, in order to be sure you will be able to get up when you have to do it. The best practice is by setting our vibrating alarm 10 minutes before your ringing one, or 30 minutes before if we are talking about a light alarm. Ringing can be used then as the final way to get up (even if in most cases you will be ready to start your new day just after your light or vibrating alarm). If you have the ability to change your ringing sound, putting a soft music or sounds of the nature will allow you to make also your ringing alarm less abrupt for you! As a final advice, try to put your alarm far from your bed, so that snooze will be impossible for you (as it is also one of the worst practices you could follow).
