Waking up bright and early, or frankly, waking up at all, is certainly not everyone’s cup of tea. Try as you might to break your am snooze habits, all last night’s plans for a strong-willed morning can so quickly vanish with the sound of an alarm clock.We’re here to help you in the struggle with these 6 tips for making mornings just a little easier.

  1. Get new curtains

Do you currently sleep with heavy curtains or fully drawn blinds? Try swapping these out for lightweight curtains or sleeping with your blinds slightly open. This will let the sunlight seep into your room in the morning and let your body wake up naturally, leaving you feeling far more relaxed and ready to get out of bed.

  1. Wake up to your favorite song

Set your alarm in the morning to a calming song that you enjoy listening to. This will make you less likely to go for the snooze button and more likely to let the song play out and allow your brain to slowly wake up.

  1. Stretch

Before you attempt to get out from the safety of your covers, do some simple stretches in your bed. Do some arm and leg raises, stretch out your chest and back, and let your covers naturally fall off as you stretch your way out of bed.

  1. Brew a delicious cup of coffee

If you have an automatic coffee maker, take advantage of the timing feature and program your coffee maker to brew a fresh pot first thing in the morning. Waking up to the sweet smell of coffee is a great way to force yourself out of bed and into the kitchen.

  1. Stick to a morning routine

The body loves consistency, plain and simple. If you regulate your sleep schedule by going to bed and waking up at the same time every day, your body will eventually wake up naturally at the same time. No feeling groggy, and no wrestling with the alarm clock.

  1. Sleep well
Whether it’s because of your partner’s loud snoring, stress, or a sleep disorder, not getting a good night’s sleep is a surefire way to guarantee a difficult morning. Be sure to go to bed a decent time every night to ensure you’re getting 7-8 hours of sleep, and if snoring is keeping you up, try investing in asnoring mouthpiece.
