There are many reasons we might need to get up early. It can for a particularly busy day or an early flight, for example. It can be a regularly, daily activity like getting the children ready for school or completing work on time. Whatever your reason, getting up in a morning can be hard to do! We’re arguably all busier than we have ever been before. Hectic social lives, work commitments, and family are wonderful but can all take their toll. We may find that our energy levels are running on empty by the time that alarm clock starts shrieking. But the good news is that we can train. Just like training in a sport, the more we practice the better we get. Research has shown that our brain and body learns behavior remarkably quickly. Humans are creatures of habit, so it’s important that we make those habits work for us. If we’re going to bed late and getting up later, that is going to become normal to us. We may have been able to handle it as a teenager but it’s rarely beneficial in adult life. It’s not even an option by the time you have a family! But help is at hand. If you want to wake up bright, refreshed, and ready for the day, try these easy to follow tips.
Put on Music
Many people swear by the uplifting effects of good music pumping through the house. Whether you’ve just hopped in the shower or are rolling out of bed, music can help you feel alert faster. The chatter of the radio or a favorite song can instantly make us feel like the day has begun and it’s time to wake up. Music when we wake up has the added advantage of stopping us from falling back asleep!
Statistically, skipping breakfast is very common but also often harmful. It can leave our metabolism sluggish and slow to start. It can cause our blood sugar to be unstable, and it can cause us to overeat at midday. Some people wake up ravenous in the morning! In which case, toast, eggs, beans, and any other high protein or carbohydrate snack is great. Others wake up feeling a little more fragile. If you’re one of them, why not try a smoothie or fresh coffee to start the day? This gives us a sugar or caffeine boost. Coffee pods can come in a variety of tasty flavors that can really wake us up in the morning too. Websites such as Coffeepodking.com have a great range have a great range or we can add a squeeze of honey or maple syrup. Eating in the morning helps us to keep us energized throughout the day.
If possible, as early as we can we should get outside and take a deep breath of fresh air. Oxygen makes us feel invigorated and alert, and the sun on our skin sends signals to our brain to wake up. We might need to let the dog out, or simply take a coffee out to have in the garden. We can take a walk around the block if we have the time or even just sit quietly and plan the day. Whatever we choose to do, the fresh air and sunlight of the day is hard to beat for feeling instantly awake.

i used to be a morning person, but i am a psychologist and most of my patients can’t come till after school or work, so i work late and sleep in. for me the key to waking up no matter whether its early or late is getting some exercise. once i move i’m up and ready

Thank you for the great post! I am not a morning person but when I have to wake up early, delicious breakfast along with groovy music always makes things better. I also try to give myself a motivation for the morning, something that I am anticipating. I wake up faster and with a great mood!

I am a morning person now that I am older but I used to work night shifts and my mornings were for sleeping back then 🙂

I agree and disagree. I was always a night owl. Even when I was a kid. When I had children all that changed until they were adults. Then I went back to my night owl ways for a long time. I’m back to waking up at 7am and going to bed 1st 11pm. There are very few days now we’re I feel good.

While I am one who would love to sleep in, I’ve made myself a morning person. It’s usually so quiet in the wee hours of the morning – I can get so much done before the chaos sets in! 😉
