How to Wake Up Early
Waking up and getting yourself out of bed in the mornings can sometimes be a real struggle, especially during the winter when it is still dark and cold outside.
But with British Summer Time about to begin this weekend, the sun will be shining and the birds will be singing, and with our tips below you will be waking up early to the sunshine instead of staying in bed hiding from the winter.
Establish a Time To Wake Up
Set yourself a time which you will wake up at for the whole week – even the weekend! Be strict with yourself and stick to that time. If you sleep in over the weekend, you will alter your body clock and that daunting Monday morning feeling will return once again.
Absorb The Sunshine
This is far easier now as we enter British Summer Time as the sun is up earlier. After you wake, immediately experiencing a light environment will help your body accept the time you are waking up at.
Start your day off with some stretching, yoga or morning meditation. If you can get outside straight away and go for a walk, then that is even better, but in the winter that can be very difficult with the cold wet weather. However, morning stretches, meditation and yoga help stimulate your brain and get you going for the day ahead.
Rehydrating your body in the morning has lots of positive effects, especially when drinking water. Drinking a couple of glasses of water in the morning will help your body with lots of issues, including; removal of toxins from the blood, helping you think better as your brain is made up of fluid, avoid headaches and back pain, boost your energy levels, plus many more.
These tips should help you wake up early and get the most out of your day, especially with summer just around the corner.
