Become a morning person in no time

But that isn't just it. There are people who can actually keep sleeping for uninterrupted long hours and still find it difficult to wake up in the mornings. These people go through a lot of struggle to get themselves out of the bed which ultimately only delays everything followed after for the day.

Don't take a bath

Of course, this sounds like an absurd reason, especially during summers when you'd want to take a shower before bedtime. But it is suggested to not take a bath before sleeping because your body temperature drops before bedtime. And since you take a bath, the hot water will only spike your body temperature and then it takes longer for your body to cool down. Hence, if you wish to fall asleep like a baby, avoid taking showers during bedtime.

Don't have your alarm clock at your arm's length

If you have your alarm clock at an arm's length, it becomes easier to shut it off and go back to sleep. But if it's farther than your arm can reach, you don't have an option but to wake up and go all the way to shut down the alarm. This could work easy as a way to wake up quickly.

08/8Open the blinds

Open the blinds

Once you manage to get off the bed, you're still in a sleepy zone and so you need some light on your eyes to wake you up completely. This is when opening up the blinds for the sun to peek in helps the most. It sure might feel a little too much right after you're up, but works just fine. And if you're lazy enough to do it in the morning, keep the blinders open during the night, so that in the morning you wake up to bright light on your face.
