  • Waking up earlier is a bit like trying a new balanced diet. You know, it’s easy for the beginner to pump up their muscles which could be a great motivation for today but might not be for tomorrow.
  • As well all know, good intentions fly out the window. Your daily motivation may go down into hibernation. Hence, you must be geared up every day.

Minute 1: Set your intentions before bed-

Your success to be a morning person largely depends on this key factor. Because your first thought in the morning becomes the last thought you had before you went to the bed, said Hal Elrod.

Minute two: Walk across the room to turn off the alam-

Another effective strategy that forces you to get out of the bed and engage your body in movement. Can you guess it? Yes, you are thinking about moving the alarm clock across the room.

This step creates motion which turns into energy. But what if your alarm clock next to your bed, are you going to snooze it or jump of bed? It depends on your intentions or mind.

Minute three: Brush your teeth-

Sink to brush your teeth once you have gotten out of bed and turn off the alarm clock. Splash some water on your face. This way you can increase your wakeup motivation level.

Doing this helps you to establish a routine and clears the bacteria that has been growing in the mouth overnight.

Minute four: Drink a Full Glass of Water-

Your mouth is fresh now. Right? Now the time to drink a full glass of water. Does it in every morning?  After 6 to 8 hours of sleep without water, you will be dehydrated that causes fatigue.

The results of hydrating you with freshwater give younger-looking skin even it maintains a healthy weight.

Minute five: Get dressed or jump in the shower-

Hal Elrod, this step has two options. One option is to get dress in your exercise clothes, so that you are ready for exercise. The second option it to jump in the shower after the workout. It helps you to start a fresh day.
