All successful entrepreneurs wake up early and swear that it is one of the main reasons behind their success because it helps increase productivity. However, when we are cuddled comfortably in our sheets, it is hard to find the motivation to step out and start the day.
Many argue that waking up early doesn’t help because they are usually cranky because they didn’t get enough sleep. In fact, if you sleep well, waking up early is easier because your body and mind are relaxed. That is why you must find ways to relax and sleep without stressing yourself out.
We have suggestions that can help you:
Plan Something Exciting for Breakfast
As aforementioned, you need motivation to wake up. What would be more motivating than yummy breakfast? Usually, when we wake up we crave for something delicious and when we have that in our plan, getting out of bed becomes exciting.
Turn The Phone Off At Bedtime
The phone is one of the biggest reasons why we don’t sleep. We are constantly distracted and a notification tone makes us wake up and check it. That usually messes with our sleep cycle and that is why we wake up cranky and irritated. Switch off your phone and keep it away. It should not be reachable from your bed.
Set the Alarm and Keep It Away From Bed
This tactic can annoy you but it helps. Keeping it away from bed will force you to get up and reach for it. We are all guilty of committing the sin of turning the alarm off and going back to sleep. Redemption time!
Drink Water Before Hitting The Sack
A big glass of water before going to sleep will help your entire body refresh and rejuvenate so that you sleep well and wake up positively.
Read A Book
If sleep is hard to come by, you could start reading a book. (We mean an actual book with pages. Keep the Kindle away at night.) This will also help you relax and put you to sleep.
We all know the power of positive thinking and if we wake up irritated because of lack of sleep, the entire day will be filled with negativity. That is why you should follow successful entrepreneurs and strive to wake up early.
Successful entrepreneurs always make it a point to wake up early and get more done. The secret to waking up early without being irritated is sleeping well. Thus, you must take measures that will enable you to sleep and relax so that you wake up refreshed.
