Maybe till now, you dread the morning alarm rings. Rolling out of bed, getting cleaned, putting on clothes and facing the world with bleary eyes are your routine. But when you develop certain skills you will surprisingly be able to gain the strength to be a morning person.
Here are the simple techniques that you can employ to become a morning person. It is not going to be easy for the first two weeks but you will have to force yourself to stick with the techniques. By maintaining the routine for 2 weeks you will eventually find yourself getting into and enjoying the new habits.
Understand that the bedroom is for sleeping
You need to avoid all sources of entertainment around your bedroom. Phones close to your bed or laptops make you do things from the comfort of your bed and eventually you end up taking up your sleep time. Eliminating tech gadgets around bedrooms will help your body understand that it is meant to relax here. With fewer distractions, you will get better sleep.
At the same time, in the morning you will have to physically get up and go to another room to actually get the things that you want making it easier to get up from your warm and cozy bed.
Sleep early and don’t look at your screens early
We are always told to sleep early and wake up early but when you actually do it, you realize it is very much helping for your mood and energy levels. Perhaps now you are wondering when you will catch up with the new episode of your favorite show online or videos on YouTube, but the moment you realize that that stuff is going to be there for you tomorrow and day after tomorrow as well.
It is rather productive to actually give your body the rest that it needs. The frequency of the light waves hinders your body to generate (melatonin) in your body which can either cause difficulty in falling asleep and make the sleep unrestful.
Get up and be on your feet ASAP
As soon as that morning alarm goes off you need to sit upright and get your feet on the floor. You can hardly ever go back to your five minutes more routine. You can keep your alarm clock or phone at a distant where you have to physically get up and turn it off.
Run into the other room
To increase the level of energy in the morning you need to increase the amount of oxygen that goes into your brain by moving your body. The physical exertion will increase the flow of blood and oxygen throughout your body more it fuels the brain and you can perform better. You can add an exercise routine to your mornings which enhances brain activity.
Find a reason to get up early
Every night think about the exciting stuff you have planned for the next morning or day. The little things like your favorite breakfast item, or reading some more to know about the interesting stuff in a novel.
Focus on the things that you look forward to the next day which is how you cultivate the habit of waking up early.
These techniques will help you only if you are passionate about doing things and staying productivity rather staying in bed. Without passion, one cannot accomplish the changes in life.
