Most adults should aim to get between seven and nine hours of sleep each night – anything less can make it harder for you to wake up early.
Waking up in the morning can be difficult, as the thought of sleep is usually a much more ‘appealing’ option. However, waking up in the morning boasts positive health benefits such as better concentration, improved sleep quality, long-lasting energy, productivity and more. Read below some simple tips to help you get into the habit of waking up early.
1. Set an earlier bedtime
Training your body to go to sleep earlier can help you get up earlier each morning. Most adults should aim to get between seven and nine hours of sleep each night – anything less can make it harder for you to wake up early.
2. Avoid late night snacks
While some studies have shown that snacking close to bedtime can help alleviate hunger pangs that can occur during the night, others have shown that it can cause less pleasant symptoms like acid reflux. It’s easy to confuse hunger with tiredness.
3. Avoid sugary energy drinks and coffee
Energy drinks and coffee can give you the extra boost you need to study, but consuming large amounts of sugar or caffeine before bed can make it harder to fall asleep and stay asleep. Limiting consumption of sugary sodas, energy drinks and coffee has been shown to produce healthier sleep habits. Try changing these habits with water or tea before bed to keep yourself hydrated.
4.Mute your phone
Turn off your phone or turn on do not disturb before bed. Notifications can wake you up in the middle of the night and tempt you to check your phone, which will disrupt your sleep cycle.
5.Sleep with your curtains open
Leave your curtains slightly open before going to bed. That way, sunlight can get through and help you wake up more naturally. On sunny days, this can be an effective strategy.
6. Place your alarm clock away from you
To avoid snoozing your alarm, place your phone or alarm away from where your bed is. That way, when your alarm goes off, you’ll have to get out of bed to snooze it. Without the temptation to snooze your alarm, you’ll be up.
