How to motivate yourself to wake up early and workout? This is the formidable question most people have sought answers to.
Most of us have a hard time getting out of bed early in the morning. In this post, I can explain a few techniques that I tried.
Thankfully, after reading my article, you can understand about how to wake up early in the morning?
When you wake up early this has been a peaceful morning since the world began moving,
In my opinion the morning is the ideal time for exercise, study and meditation.
Here I share my techniques that I have learned after numerous attempts.
(1) Attempt to wake up gradually
Sleep habits are often difficult to change, so the progressive method suits me well.
The best method to change the time of your awakening is to do so gradually.
Try adjusting your alarm 15 minutes earlier for 2-4 days, until you are comfortable with it.
Then you can gradually increase the time up to 30min, 45 min, 1hour or more.
For illustration, if you wake up 1-2 hours early on day 1, then you may feel tired end of the day and not motivated to do it again the next day.
Sudden changes an hour before your awakening can be difficult and never last longer.
Even if you are able to do it in 2 days straight, third day you are going to be exhausted with lack of sleep.
You could end up sleeping longer hours on day three and finally give up.
Therefore, from my past experience, progressive awakening works with me.
(2) Stop pressing that snooze button
Once you trained to wake up 30 minutes earlier, maybe you were able to continue it for few days.
Only after a few days you may have less motivation and have the tendency to hit the snooze alarm. Most of us having this habit of snoozing the alarm to remain in bed for longer in the morning.
You can try the two following tasks to avoid snooze alam.
Move your alarm across the room. If it is close to you, you still have the tendency to hit the snooze button without awakening.
If you move, then you will need to get out of bed to stop the alarm. Then get in the habit of going into the shower room right away.
Make a list of things you always enjoy doing and leave them in the morning. So when you wake up, remember this exciting thing, and it’s going to help you get up.
(3) Trained to go to bed early to wake up early
You can not expect you to get up early without going to sleep early. You may feel very tired to wake up the next day if you are late night sleeper.
According to the National Sleep Foundation, you have to sleep 7 to 9 hours if you are between 26 and 64 years old.
(4) Make out a routine of sticking to the set hour for wake up
The body functions very well on a regular sleep schedule. If you keep a regular routine, you can take advantage of quality sleep and never feel lazy to wake up in the morning.
Waking up early without feeling tired can make your morning more productive.
(5) Keep your phones off the bed
In order to sleep well, you should sleep without distractions. Then get into the habit of turning off your phone or putting it in silent mode and keeping it out of the bed area.
That way, you don’t tend to read email, texts, news, posts or browse social media when you wake up.
(6) make an early dinner habit before bed
Eating early gives a person enough time to digest food.
This means your body can afford as much restorative sleep as it needs. This, of course, will improve your sleep quality.
(7) Stronger motivation is crucial for getting up early
You have to be strong-willed to wake up early. This is what we call the motivation for rising early.
Therefore, define your objective to get out of bed early. You may have a major fitness goal, which you want to achieve, need to do overtime in the morning to improve your business or study to achieve good examination results.
Regardless of your goals, Motivation will be the key factor in helping you achieve what you want in your life.
This motivation must be an enormous desire and commitment to get out of bed early.
