Are you having trouble waking up in the morning? You have to wake up for work, but you are just too tired? We have a few tips and tricks to make waking up early in the morning easier for you!
Slowly Become An Early Riser
For most people, getting up early means radically dragging their wake-up time an hour or two forward. The body is thrown into the cold water without being able to get used to the change. This method may work for some early risers, but it will fail for others. You don’t have to go “all in” right away, instead get your body used to the new times gradually. Set your alarm clock 10 to 15 minutes earlier than usual. As soon as you can get up at this new time, deduct 10 to 15 minutes. Repeat this process until you have reached your desired time
Set The Alarm Clock Far Away
If you can easily reach your alarm clock, you will stay in bed when you mute it. So if you don’t have the discipline to get up on your own, force yourself to do so by placing the alarm clock so that you have no other choice. For example, place it on the chest of drawers across from the bed or on the wardrobe. On the way to the alarm clock, turn on the light to wake up even faster. If you need some time in bed to wake up before you get up, set yourself two alarm clocks. The earlier one next to the bed, the other one farther away and 10 to 15 minutes later.
Use Smart Alarm Clocks
Don’t worry, you are not the only morning grouch. For this reasons, there are already a number of smart alarm clocks that are supposed to make it easier to get up early. Light alarm clocks that simulate an artificial sunrise in addition to the alarm sound are particularly interesting. Another alternative would be alarm clocks whose switching off is linked to a task, for example taking a photo of a certain object in the kitchen or bathroom. Such alarm clocks are available as apps for smartphones. Those who want to get up early and like to be woken up by scents can, for example, get an alarm clock with an integrated coffee machine or other scented alarm clocks.
Let The Sun In
A pitch-dark room can help you fall asleep, but it makes getting up more difficult. Because the internal clock is mainly controlled by the sleep hormone melatonin. Daylight stops the release of melatonin in the body so that we wake up. On the other hand, a lack of daylight leads to melatonin getting into the blood, which makes us tired. Make sure that there is light in your bedroom in the morning by keeping the blinds up or only partially closing them. If it is still dark when you get up, a light lamp from 10,000 lux can help you get up.
