I can’t deny that getting up in the morning can be extremely difficult. Especially when it’s 6AM, still dark outside, and you need to get ready for another day at school or work. You’re tired, grumpy, and want to stay under the covers all day long. But, if you strive to be a semi-functioning member of society, that doesn’t have to be your reality. Starting your day can be one of the worst feelings or one of the best, it’s up to you!
There are steps you can take every morning to feel better about the 6AM wake-up call. This may sound impossible or unrealistic if you’ve already tried everything in the book. However, there are many ways to train your mind and body to get excited about starting your day... getting more sleep isn’t necessarily one of them.
Waking up easier doesn’t stem from your external conditions, but rather from your internal ones. It’s about creating a habit of feeling grateful to start a new day. If you wake up every day in a sluggish daze, there is no way that one day you will suddenly wake up excited.
Similar to becoming physically fit, nothing happens overnight. The progress is hidden in the small daily actions. If you want to easily wake up earlier, you must train your mind to love the feeling of a new morning, regardless of what happened the night before.
The first step to this mindset makeover is to get a hold of your subconscious mind. As soon as you wake up, start filling your brain with positive thoughts. How? It’s simple. People have done this before you and have created videos with all the inspirational words you need to hear.
Play these videos, one after the next, as soon as your alarm goes off. If you find it's difficult to do all three, start with the first one (it's only 6 minutes!) Do it every single day. Trust that they are working in ways you can’t even understand.
Remember, you won’t see results right away. You wouldn’t after two days in the gym either. Keep at it and in time you’ll realize you are waking up with ease. You will be able to look past your exhaustion to tackle another day with a pep in your step. There isn’t a quick fix to your habits, especially to snoozing and waking up tired. It takes discipline and it takes persistence.
But I know that if you are really serious about waking up easier, you’ll find a way to make it happen. You’ll make time in the morning to listen to these videos in order to put your health and success at the top of your to-do list.
If you try this out, let me know in the comments how it work for you. How many days have you played the videos and have you seen any improvements? If so, leave encouragement for other skeptical readers who are just starting out! Prefer other videos? Please share :)
