Winter Wake-up Tips

By Ella Donlevy

I know (for a fact) that I seriously struggle to get out of bed on those cold winter mornings and I’m sure I’m not the only one! Here are some tips and tricks to transform your mornings into good time!

1. Let light in ASAP

Expose yourself to light as soon as you wake up, whether that is your bedside table lamp or the hallway light.

2. Make your bed as soon as you get out of it

Even though making your bed is a small task, completing it first thing in the morning wires your brain to think that you can successfully complete more things during the day.

3. Put your alarm across the other side of the room

This means that you are less likely to go back to bed or press snooze after hearing your alarm.

4. Change your alarm sound/song once a week

This will interest your brain, make it less annoying to wake up to, and you are less likely to sleep through it because it is a new sound.

5. Drink something as soon as you wakeup

This stimulates your body and gets your organs moving, wakeing you faster!

I hope these tips are helpful and that soon enough you become an early bird!
