Probably, each of us at least once in his life wanted to smash an alarm clock against the wall, a nasty trill notifying about getting up early in the morning. Perhaps the only thing that keeps us from this impulse is that alarm clocks are built right into a smartphone today, and it is at least unreasonable to break an expensive gadget. It would be much wiser to learn how to wake up quickly in the morning. This will help a few useful habits that will not be superfluous to introduce into everyday life:
Going to bed at the same time
This is difficult, because daily chores take up a lot of our time, and sometimes we stay up late at work or finish fussing in the kitchen only when the hands of the clock have long since crossed the 12 mark. However, falling asleep no later than 23 hours for several days, you will feel that in the morning you easily get out of bed and feel cheerful.
Alarm clock away from the bed
“Well, five more minutes!” we say to ourselves, in a half-asleep state, reaching out and turning off the alarm. And then we fall back on the pillow and fall asleep. Due to the fact that the alarm clock, as a rule, stands very close to the bed (and if the alarm clock is in a smartphone, then it is under the pillow at all, slapped on it with the palm of your hand — it turned off), we do not have time to wake up at least a little while we turn it off.
Put the alarm clock (or the device in which it is built) at the opposite end of the room. By the time you get out of bed and reach him, the sleepy veil will have already fallen off you a little. Now you can go to the shower, and then – to the kitchen, for a cup of fragrant coffee.
Take your time
When you wake up, you do not need to jump out of bed abruptly and immediately get down to business. Try to wake up 5-10 minutes earlier than the required time and lie down for a while. Or do a light exercise without taking your head off the pillow – swinging your arms and lifting straight legs is quite suitable. An instant, sharp awakening is a great stress for the body. It can “awaken” you with a feeling of lethargy and malaise throughout the day.
If you want to wake up easily and at the same time not feel “broken”, it is better not to have dinner too tightly. And even more so, not to arrange the so-called “night dozhor”. Copious meals before going to bed and at night give an additional load to the stomach. As a result, the stomach works (digests food) all night; it works when the body (and all its systems) should rest.
Refrain from drinking coffee before going to bed. This drink stimulates the nervous system — after it it will be difficult for you to fall asleep. It is better to drink herbal tea (chamomile and melissa, by the way, have a calming effect) or warm milk with honey. It is better to have dinner three hours before bedtime. And if shortly before you go to the kingdom of Morpheus, you still wanted to eat – have a snack with yogurt or low-fat cottage cheese. Such a meal will not only not cause heaviness in the stomach, but also improve metabolism. And it’s better to start the day with porridge. Of course, not everyone has time to cook in the early morning, but if you have an extra 20-30 minutes – why not? And in case of lack of time, you can have breakfast with any dairy product.
When you hear the alarm sound, think about something good that awaits you today. Maybe after work you have planned a walk in your favorite park with your family or friends. Or you are waiting for a call from a loved one with whom you rarely communicate. Remembering what good a new day will bring you, you will wake up with a smile on your face and wings behind your back.
As you can see, it is not difficult at all to accustom your body to an easy awakening. May your every morning be good!
