5 TIPS ON HOW TO MAKE GETTING OUT OF BED EASIER


Happy Wednesday guys! You know I always like to write about things that are currently happening in life or on my mind and right now I’m really dealing with getting up out of bed bright and early and kick start the day with more energy to be more productive. As I’m my own boss it’s not always key to be in my own office at 8.30 AM or at least it doesn’t seem like it’s necessary. But I’ve decided to be a bit healthier regarding my sleeping schedule (I love to go to bed at 5 AM everyday) with the baby coming up! Here’s my 5 favorite tips to making getting out of bed easier:

1: Bed Rituals: My mind can be a huge creative mess overloaded with new ideas and things I need or want to do, sometimes. There are loads of options for bed rituals. Do whatever makes you relaxed and calm! I personally like to have a bath before bed and have some soothing scents in my bath- and bedroom.

2: Go to bed early: This will probably sound like a broken record but IT IS TRUE! Getting enough sleep makes waking up so much easier. And above all: it’s extremely necessary you do! I feel so much better and work much more effective when I’ve gotten enough rest. Also my skin shows huge differences when I sleep enough to when I don’t.

3: Sleep without your phone in the room: I often caught myself getting in bed at 11 pm but only falling asleep at 1 am. Sometimes I even wake up with my face on or closely next to my phone, because I have fallen asleep on it. Put it away just as you do with your computer or laptop at the end of your work day! You are also more likely to get out of bed faster when your phone is not in your room because you get excited about checking all the messages.

4: Use your meetings wisely: When I know I want to have a long day at the office I always make sure to plan my meetings super, super early so there’s no excuse to slack in the morning. Also after the meetings you have got plenty of time left to spend at your office or just for other tasks.

5: Create a routine: If you get your body used to getting to bed at 11 pm and waking up at 8 am things will be a lot easier. Just make sure you stay just about the same sleeping times. Not only your body will thank you but your mind also knows what he’s up to!

These 5 are just my favorite tips. As I’m still a newbie in this lifestyle I would love to hear your advice, guys! What is your holy grail to getting out of bed easy?

    Love this! However the keeping the phone from the room one seems tough to me since my phone basically is my alarm clock 😀

    • You can solve this by leaving in in the other room and setting the alarm really loud if you live alone (you don’t want to wake up all the people in the house, right:)). OR if that’s not an option, just leave it somewhere else in the room where you don’t have access to it from the bed. What matters is that you don’t scroll instagram/facebook when ready to sleep, and also not to reach for your phone first thing in the morning, while still in bed. I’m still struggling with this one! 🙂

      Great tips Noor. I feel I’ll never be a morning person even though I really want to. Maybe I just need to stick to getting up early for 21 day… they say it takes that much to form a habit 🙂

  • I had a pretty great sleeping schedule until I had a baby. She messed up everything and only now, 20 months after her being born, we are back to where I was before, which for me is going to bed at 11 pm and getting up at 7 am.
    I think the best way is to really, really make it the same time everyday, that way you body gets used to it.

  • My body automatically wakes up at either 5:45 or 6:30 AM. Which I guess is good because I need to be awake by 7am. It’s a natural alarm clock haha, which sucks on weekends.

  • I like these tips. Im often lethargic throughout the day and every point you hit is so right. *laughs* I fall asleep with my phone falling out of my hand and I don’t lay down until at least 3 am. That can’t be good. Oh and can we add, drinking coffee past like 10 pm? I need a new routine.

  • Love these tips.I am definitely in need of those.

    Thank you for your posts!
    I just recently started doing a mini-stretching exercise IN BED, as soon as I wake up. Google “morning exercise in bed” and you will see what I mean! It works surprisingly well – my eyes open up without strain and my brain feels energised. Really recommend everyone to at least try it out! It helps me a lot. 🙂

  • You have a lot of adjustment to do because when baby comes you will need to be ready to bu up with the baby and rest with the baby. It’s all worth it, though. But for now, you are very smart for getting as much rest as possible. xx Zuma

    Thinking through what I’m gonna wear (or at least narrowing down to 2-3 choices) the night before makes it easier to get out of bed in the morning!

  • This is great! I am an advocate for nightly routines – great post 🙂
