How to Wake Up Early?
A few easy steps and you’re there.
- De-Snooze Half an Hour:
Take short steps. Start by waking up 30mins earlier than your routine time. If you get up at 7 am for school, then wake up at 6:30 am for a week. Keep moving your slot by half an hour every week.
- Keep Your Alarm Away:
The closer your alarm is to the bed, the more likely is the temptation to snooze and say ‘Five Minutes More’. Place your alarm away from your bed. The best place would be near the light switch. Put off your alarm and turn on the lights!
Exercise Twenty minutes of exercise every morning ensures a stable energy level all day. You won’t feel lethargic as you’ve made the most of your ‘golden hour’.
Feed Your Body and your Mind. A healthy and fresh breakfast that’s not eaten in a hurry will keep your physical strength at its peak. Similarly, you need to keep your mind charged and stay at the peak of its intellectual abilities. Invest 30-60 minutes every morning to read something motivational and inspirational that lets you say, Yes I can!
Write down your goals List down 5-10 everyday goals that you want to achieve at the start of your day. This could be anything from, ‘Drink 8 Glasses of water’ to ‘Finish Assignment 4 Today’. Write down all the plans on a piece of paper and have a physical proof of your plan right before your eyes.
List Down What you need These will be all the material things and even bits and pieces of information that you’ll need to finish your goals of the day. Pen, pencils, paper, make a list of things you will require in your inventory that day.
Start with The Most Important Task Now that you’re all geared up and fresh to take up the day’s challenges, start by handling the most important task at hand. Prioritise your goals and deal with them one by one.
