How to wake up at 5am
Waking up at 5am is actually not as hard as you think. A 5am morning routine sounds early and tiring but it can by very rewarding. Most people wake up around 6-6:30 so If you try subtracting one hour from the night before and then simply add it on to the next morning; You will not be disrupting your number of sleep hours and you can wake up a whole hour earlier.
If you want to adjust your natural body clock it will take a bit of time. Here are some early morning hacks to show you exactly how I switched mine.
- Go to bead early even if you aren’t tired. This way you can put your body in relaxation mode and get ready to sleep sooner
- Set multiple alarms in the morning. The key is to have several alarms 5-10 minutes apart before you have to actually wake up. The first alarm jolts you out of REM sleep. The other alarms prepare you for waking up in the next 10 minutes.
Trust me guys 10 minutes can feel like an hour of sleep some times!
How to have a healthy morning routine
When it comes to being healthy there are a few easy hacks you can implement into your day. Here are my top 5 healthy morning routine tips
- Start the day off with a stretch. By stretching out your muscles before you get out of bed, you will be warming your body up and preparing it for the day of natural exercise. A simple leg stretch can get your blood circulating instantly.
- Make your bed! – If you make your bed first thing in the morning it changes your mind set into productive mode and changes the entire trajectory of your bedroom. Let’s not forget the jolt of endorphins you will feel when you get home and see a nice clean bed to climb into!
- Try a wake up morning playlist while getting ready. Music is know to soothe your soul. Try putting on music that depicts how you WANT to feel today. Subconsciously your body will adjust to that mood.
- Exercise even if it’s only for two minutes. This will help you’re blood to circlulate and avoids stiff joints! Especially if you work in sedentary try office job all day like me!
- Use a facial cleanser that is designed to WAKE you. Try lemon scented skincare products, or maybe even watermelon!
