Check out these 6 tips on getting up in the morning

If you have trouble getting out of bed in the morning, then this list might be for you. Here are some simple tips to help you jump-start your day for more productivity.

Wake up with light. If possible, sleep with your blinds open or partially open so that the light can come into your room in the morning. It’s a more natural and less jarring way to wake up than an alarm clock.

Get up right away. It’s hard, but if you force yourself to sit up and then hop out of bed, you’ve already overcome the biggest hurdle.

Drink a big glass of cold water. Hydrating first thing in the morning is a great way to start your day, and an ice-cold glass should get you wide awake and ready-to-go before you’ve even sat down for breakfast. Speaking of which…

Eat breakfast! A lot of people say that they’re not hungry in the morning, and while that may be true, getting into the habit of eating a healthy breakfast will leave you feeling better for the rest of the day.

Exercise for a few minutes. Whether you do jumping jacks, yoga, or a quick walk around the block, exercising is a way to get your blood pumping and get you into productivity mode.

Get your mind in the right place. Have something to look forward to in every day. Sure, it sounds kinda hippy-dippy, but having something to motivate you, whether it’s a job you enjoy or spending time with friends can make it a lot easier to take on the day.
