Getting up early and feeling fresh, enjoying the sunrise and the cold air. Of course, everyone loves to do this but it does not happen even though we try a lot.
It doesn’t matter how much early we get to sleep, if you’re not an early riser then having energy in the morning can seem like a myth. As soon as the alarm rings, it’s all too tempting to pull the covers over the blanket from your head. And once you make it up to face the day. You are walking around like a person who has not slept for days. Honestly, I am also like you.
But, mornings don’t have to be something that you dread. It’s important to have an energetic start to the day, but sometimes it’s hard to get up and go. It’s not all about going to bed early, but who does this.
Honestly, streamlining my morning routine was tough.
I collect my entire routine and managed to work early with a spring in my step every single day. These simple steps finally made me the energetic early riser and if I can do it, so can you.
Start with shifting your attitude:
The first step towards becoming a morning person must necessarily be an attempt to change the way you ordinarily think about waking up early. One of the biggest problems is the way we approach sleep and waking up. It is the thoughts that bombard us before we go to bed and the moment we open our eyes.
Before going to bed always meditate, pray and calm down yourself. Don’t eat dinner right before bed. Avoid coffee, red wine, chocolate during bedtime.
After waking up, tell yourself that the amount of sleep you got last night was the perfect amount you need to have an amazing day.
Do you honestly feel more refreshed after snoozing the alarm for 5 minutes more?
I don’t think so. Snozzing the alarm takes back you to deep sleep again. Most of the time 5 minutes snooze takes at least 20 minutes or 30 minutes of sleep. You feel like its just 2 minutes I’m sleeping but it is not.
Most importantly once you wake up late, you start to feel more guilty rather than waking up early.
Trust me this is the truth and I know who is reading this may know it personally.
Gratitude, visualization, and self-love:-
Self-loving and gratitude is something that you should not miss during starting your day. Close your eyes for a few minutes and think of all the things that you are grateful for.
it may be your assets or family or even achievements. mostly counting these things help you to reduce stress and also help to clear your vision.
Then visualize your self or another two minutes. Picture yourself being exactly where you want to be to start your motivation.
Finally, for the final minute, think about yourself in the most positive way. You will feel instantly more energized and ready to face the day.
When you wake up, get out of bed immediately:-
when we wake up, spend at least ten minutes checking up on all the social media that we have missed overnight. But the longer you lounge in bed the more you want to stay there. Getting out of bed will stop you from so desperately wanting to stay there, so get up and browse your phone from the kitchen table.
After getting up, Drink a glass of water:-
A glass of water on an empty stomach actually has a lot of health benefits as well as serving to wake you up. The water will kick start your metabolism and as such you will wake up faster and feel more alert.
When you are groggy in the morning and nice run in the fresh air can wake you up fast. However, the interesting thing is that when you exercise in the morning you will actually have more energy the next day. It makes you feel more energetic the whole day, enjoying morning sunrise and hearing the birds chirping make you fall love with nature. It brings more positive energy in your life, making you feel happier.
Taking bath early morning:-
After exercise, head towards to bathroom. Taking a bath makes you feel more refreshing and make you feel hungry, which is actually a good thing.
love for the tea or coffee:-
Energy does come naturally, but I prefer tea to boost my energy. Having some shortly after awakening can help to eliminate that morning grogginess, setting you up to face the day.
Don’t skip breakfast:-
Are you one of those who claim to not be hungry in the morning? Well, you are. While you were sleeping your body entered into starvation mode, and while this can lead to you not having much of an appetite for food, your body needs it. Food is energy, and your mornings are more likely to be energetic if you have some fuel in you.
Always have a good breakfast. Breakfast provides the body and brain with fuel after an overnight fast – that’s where its name originates, breaking the fast! Without breakfast, you are effectively running empty, like trying to start the car with no petrol!
