Early to bed, early to rise makes a man happy, wealthy and 'Oh, Mom, 5 minutes more, please!' Sounds familiar? Seems like yesterday you spent your summer nights partying and hanging out, and today you have to dive into a tiresome routine. The pale of homework is growing, and you need plenty of energy to ace your essays. Getting up has never been a pleasant experience whatsoever, but doing that after sleepless summer nights seems impossible. Here some morning mood boosters and lifehacks that can help you not to look like one of those zombies from "Walking Dead" series.
Give it a good reason.
Find a good reason to wake up in the morning. The further your imagination goes − the better. You may open your eyes with a pleasant thought you'll meet your crush looking gorgeous in your new leather jacket. Or you maybe, an idea of saving someone's life will lurk in your head. Think of one positive thing when you open your eyes − a cupcake on your way to college, a smile you share talking to a freshman. Do you need more prosaic reason? A new episode of "Daredevil" is awaiting!
It is always about breakfast.
Always start your morning with a healthy and nutritious meal, such as scrambled eggs or a toast of strawberry jam. That will keep you full till lunch. It also proven that a scent of cinnamon and mint awakes positive emotions and reduces the level of annoyance, so feel free to add it to your morning meals. You can also be awarded with a cup of strong coffee or black tea as they tend to elevate your mental sharpness.
Make it habitual.
It is generally known that one hour's sleep before midnight is better that three after it. Try to establish a rule not to go to bed later than 11pm. It does not mean that if you miss the chance to fall asleep before midnight you should not go to bed at all. You will be surprised how miraculous the world is when you do not spend half of the night scrolling your Instagram or writing another narrative essay. It is always better to read something nice in the morning and set the tone for the rest of the day.
But is all those reasons do not seem convincing enough, we have the one that was proven to be the most efficient. It also known as the fastest way to leave your bed. All you need is to get a dog. Actually, having a dog solves a bunch of problems − you are always disciplined, energetic and − what's more important — you always wake up early in the morning.
