It’s been raining non-stop for the past few days and aside from the flooding and traffic, getting out of bed on a raining morning is one of the biggest challenges ever. The warmth and comfort of the bed is just the best alternative to battling it out on the streets, trying to stay as dry as you possibly can.
But if you need to be somewhere else, how do you force yourself to leave your bed? Here are some tips you can try to convince yourself that something else is worth leaving your bed.
1.Prepare the night before.
Prepping your things before you hit the hay will let you have a few more minutes in the bed the following morning. Decide what you want to wear the next day to lessen your worries and frustrations while you try to rush your morning routine. Have the stuff you need to bring all in one place as well so you can just grab them and go.
2. Drink a glass of water before hitting the hay or as soon as you wake up.
Drinking a glass of water before bed will force you to get out of bed in the morning as you have to rush to the CR for some relief. It’ll be hard to get comfortable again in bed once you already got out, so it could be a good way to wake yourself up.
However, if you’re the type who can’t handle fluids at night and tend to wake up during the wee hours to pee, this might not be the best idea. What you can do instead is to drink a glass of water as soon as your alarm goes off. A drink will instantly wake you up and will not let you go back to sleep, helping you get out of bed easily.
3. Place your alarm clock away from you.
If you think you’ll be having a hard time getting yourself out of bed the next morning, take a preemptive measure and place your alarm clock away from the bed where you can’t reach it without getting out of the covers. This will instantly get you out of bed.
4. Remind yourself why you need to get up already.
There might be tons of reasons why you have to get out of bed in the morning, remind yourself of them and you’ll surely find a way to convince yourself that you can’t stay under the covers all day.
5. Reward yourself a little.
Rewarding yourself could be a great incentive for getting out of bed in the morning. It doesn’t have to be a huge thing, it can be just a nice cup of coffee from your favorite coffee shop or a nice lunch dish. This way, you’ll feel better about getting out of bed in the morning.6.
