Many of us struggle with the morning drag, but there are some things that you can do to help you beat it. Here are five of them.
Give yourself reason to need to get up– Set alarms away from the bed or drink a little water at night. When your eyes open you need a reason to have to get out of that bed.
Make your bed when your feet touch the floor– Start making the bed as you are getting up.
Have a theme song and play it loud– It can even be one of you alarm. That song needs to start within a minute of your waking up and have it repeat. Don’t give yourself time to even think about the warmth of that bed.
Let the day in– Let light into the room. Open blinds, open windows, open doors. Make your room look and feel like the day has begun.
Start your morning routine immediately– Once you start moving don’t stop until you are done- Bathroom -> Breakfast -> Get dressed… Just keep on moving
