6 Tips to wake up early: Waking up early and being tired is something we all have experienced a lot. Simple changes in our daily routine and mindset can eliminate this early morning tiredness. Let’s explore them.

1) Go to bed and wake up at the same time each day.

The internal clock in our body determines our sleep-wake-up schedule. But it gets confused when we sleep and wake up at a different time each day. Some days, we might wake up at times that we would usually be sleeping, which results in tiredness.

So, the best solution is to let the internal clock know our sleep-wake-up schedule and let it do the job for us. Waking up at the same time each day helps the body know when we’re ready to start the day and vice versa.

2) Set goals for the day.

Knowing what to do right after waking up can become a game-changer.

To-do lists don’t work for everyone, so you can set your daily tasks in the most effective way for you. Also, when you wake up in the morning, think of the purpose you have set for your life.

“He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how.” Friedrich Nietzsche

3) Try to get at least 8 hours of sleep.

The National Sleep Foundation recommends eight hours of sleep per night for adults. Sleep is the time for your brain to recharge, reorganize itself, and unload the toxic waste byproducts that we have collected throughout the day.

Sleep expert Matthew Walker says that the less you sleep, the shorter your life span will be. And the quality of that short life will be inferior too.

“We want to seem busy, and one way we express that is by proclaiming how little sleep we’re getting, it’s a badge of honor.” — Matthew Walker

4) Splash your face with cold water right after you wake up

Splashing cold water on your face will not only wake you up in the morning but also can do several other benefits for your skin.

5) Avoid large meals late at night.

Having large meals late at night, especially when it involves spicy foods, can worsen your sleep by interfering with digestion.

After a big meal, the body has to commit energy to the digestive process, which commonly takes several hours. As large meals take more of your energy to get digested during sleep, it can leave you tired when you wake up.

6) Avoid phone or other screens before sleep.

Using phones or other blue-light emitting screens can cause your body to release the hormone melatonin. This process can trick your internal clock into believing that it’s daytime and cause in lowering sleepiness. Try to keep yourself away from screens at least one hour before sleep.

If you find it difficult to resist the urge to check your phone while in bed, then place your phone outside your room. If that’s not helpful, you may try ‘Cell phone jails’ available on Amazon, which you can use to lock your phone during bedtime.
