The sound of the dreaded alarm clock every morning is one that we would all love to remove from our daily routine. After eight or so hours of sleep, getting ourselves up in the morning can sometimes seem an impossible task. However, those who have the energy to be productive in the early hours of the day may turn out to be healthier than those who refuse to pull off their duvet covers. Despite all of the apparent negatives to getting up in the morning, there are a wealth of benefits. Here are some tips to help you greet the day with positivity and alertness.
Change Your Alarm
To some of you, the alarm clock may feel like the worst sound in the world, but this does not have to be the case. Why not change your alarm to something fun and happy? A favourite pop song, the sound of nature, or a personalised recording may all be possibilities for a wake-up call.
Purchase A Comfy Mattress
Even if you gain the recommended eight hours of sleep a night, you are not guaranteed to have a good night’s rest if your bed isn't quite right. Comfort is an essential quality to being able to sleep well. Here at CosyCo, we stock a range of luxurious mattresses and pillows to suit your individual needs including mattress toppers, orthopaedic mattresses and memory foam mattresses.
An alarm set at the same time every morning should help you to get out of bed more easily as your body clock will adjust to this familiarity. This must also include weekends so that there is consistency in your week.
While many of us would love waking up to the smell of fresh coffee or tea and a bacon sandwich, this is not always possible due to time constraints in the morning. However, studies have shown that eating some form of breakfast in the morning will help to activate your brain and will benefit you later in the day.
For those who have breathing difficulties or share a bed with a partner who snores, this may significantly be affecting the amount of sleep you will obtain. Although it cannot be completely cured, there are ways of making it more tolerable. Browse through our range of CPAP pillows which will help you to relax and improve respiratory issues at night.
Sometimes after a busy day at work, the last thing you want to do is hit the gym or partake in any form of physical exercise. However, with a little bit of effort before or after work, exercise may work wonders when it comes to resting at night.
Remember Your Goal
No one enjoys getting up in the morning, but if no one did, the world would not run. It is important to reflect on the purpose of why you are doing it.
Simple tasks such as making your bed, packing a lunch box or simply having a shower in the mornings will help to freshen up your body and activate your mind for the day ahead.
The phrase ‘snooze and you lose’ seems to be more accurate than ever after reading this list of helpful tips. With so many advantages to being a morning person such as effective weight control and maintaining an active mind and body, there is no reason why even the night owls amongst us can’t make their morning routines even easier. The more efficiently you get up, the more hours in the day you can gain and this is something we could all make the most of.
