How to Wake up early 

I have a habit of getting up early and here are the tips which you could follow if you are struggling. No matter who you are? Or why do you need to wake up in the morning? These suggestions will help you.


Waking early is my one habit to which i am proud of.Once you develop the habit of waking up early. Trust me, I guarantee you that you will love it.


I am a morning bird and I do it without feeling tired and sleepy all day.
Waking up early at 5 am may seem like a very hard thing. But you just have to be determined and  be a little pushy to yourself to wake up early.


         So students who need to wake up early to study?

            Any individual  deciding to be more productive

            Or deciding to do some early morning exercises?

            Or simply just needs to get up early? Follow these steps-


  1. Go over your to-do list in your head before sleeping:


You are all ready to go to sleep and your lying down…go over your to-do list in your head while lying down. This helps a lot. You may question- how?

By going over your plan you are letting yourself know that you need to get up early to do this and that. That is how waking up early will be important and productive for you and you will be happier to do that.


2. Put your alarm clock away from your hands reach:


If you place your alarm clock near you. You will more likely to hit snooze or off and go back to sleep. Now here you have to be tough and put the alarm clock a little further from you.

Like, I put my mobile on the bathroom counter. So when the alarm rings I have to get up completely and go to my bathroom and turn that off.

This trick will never fail you if you really want to get up early.


3. Change your alarm tone frequently:


Have you ever felt like, someone hitting the calling bell in your sleep?

But actually, that is your alarm clock.

Yes, funny thing the brain. If you use one ringtone over and over again. You will get used to it and you will actually hear your alarm after quiet some time, funny it may be but some believe it is true. As you will begin to develop a tolerance to the alarm tone and it will be less effective.


4. Make a routine:


You need to get proper rest, if you do not, You will feel tired or worse fall ill.

And getting up early does not mean that you need to sacrifice good night’s sleep. Some people need 7-8 hours of sleep and some can get by 5-6 hours. It really depends on the person, for me, I have to get 7 hours of sleep, as it is good for the overall health. But some of you may be very busy. You can develop a habit of sleeping little less and not get tired.

So make a plan or routine for going to sleep early or at a fixed time everyday is very helpful as you will grow it into a habit and your body will adjust.


5.Do some free hand exercises:

Doing some free hand exercise will help you a lot. It is not just for staying in shape but you will feel less idle if you have the habit of doing free hand exercises.

You can do free hand exercises in your room or even on your bed. Just focus on stretching every part but always take precaution. I do not want you to pull up something.


Being a morning bird has its own share of advantages. We all have read that or heard it in our life. And that is absolutely true.

Early to bed and early to rise

Makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.

    I think the bigesst problem that I have in getting up early in morning is because of being a bit of disorganized and putting my brain to snooze mode. Will try and follow your tips.
