1. Keep your alarm clock on the other side of the room
Are you a chronic snoozer?! The saying is true, if you snooze you lose. When you're getting up in the morning, make it as uncomfortable as possible to stay in bed. My suggestion is to keep your alarm clock on the other side of room so you have to get up to turn off the annoying buzzing sound! Once you're up and out of bed, then you have to STAY out. Resist the urge to climb back in.
2. Keep screens out of the bedroom
As much as you love your iPhone and laptop, you should definitely keep them out of the bedroom... especially in the hour before you're going to bed. Using something with a screen and bad light before falling asleep can disrupt your sleep cycle! Do something else before bed like meditating or reading. Don't forget to switch off the television!
3. Write a motivating note
Okay, so you're out of bed and verrrrry tempted to climb back in. While you're out of bed switching your alarm clock off, wouldn't it be great to see a motivational note by your alarm clock. It could be as simple as a post-it that you leave next to your alarm clock the night before when you set it. Or put a whiteboard up that you can change every night. Motivate yourself with a reminder about the day, "You will crush the presentation today!" or "It's going to be 85 degrees and sunny!" Anything that will excite you about being awake and get you geared up for the day.
4. Prepare the night before
The best defence is a good offence. Basically, you have to prepare the night before to make the morning as seamless as possible. Preparing the night before will allow for a stress-free morning AND you can sleep in as much as possible. You don't have to worry about packing a lunch or picking out your outfit if it's already done. It's a good idea to make sure your work or school things are in one spot all together so you can just grab and go after you're ready in the morning.
