Tricks for Waking Up #7

You can never trust yourself when you’re half asleep.

Tip #7: Leave a reminder for yourself

A simple note reminding you of the chores you have to do before you leave the house, or important things happening that day will motivate you to get out of bed.

If I have an important test that morning or a meeting I can’t miss, I will put a physical reminder right beside my alarm so when I turn it off, I know that I MUST get up. Any item that will trigger your sleeping mind will do the trick. It just needs to be different from the routine, so that you know it’s something important.

It can even be as simple as changing your alarm sound or moving the location of your alarm.

    Changing my alarm sound is a great way to wake me up. Hearing something different but just as jarring is enough for me.
