What gets you out of bed in the morning?

  1. You don't necessarily have to wake up early to be productive, especially when you are sacrificing your sleep. Although for me, I always schedule my workouts and tasks conducive to my well-being in the morning in order to get me motivated to get out of bed.

  2. I noticed i can get more stuff done because there are less distractions around me. So Once my kids wake up I need to make sure the important tasks are at least done for that day lol

  3. Progress. I’ve been on a health kick for over two months now, lost almost 10 pounds and am much happier with how I look. One of the first things I do every single morning is weigh myself and its extremely rewarding to see progress. After that I workout and feel great afterwards from the endorphins. Both of these are strong habits now so when I wake up it doesn’t feel like it takes any effort, my brain is just awake and craving the happy chemicals that get released when I see progress on the scale and after I workout. I wake up around 4AM automatically, I don’t even need an alarm.

  4. Don't beat yourself, it's normal to scramble your routine when you have no responsibilities and there is a pandemic out there. You don't have a job now, but this doesn't mean you wont need one in the future. I've always told this to myself when I was jobless in order to try and use that free time and improve in my field( by reading or whatever it's necessary to do so).

  5. 'At dawn, when you have trouble getting out of bed, tell yourself: “I have to go to work — as a human being. What do I have to complain of, if I’m going to do what I was born for — the things I was brought into the world to do? Or is this what I was created for? To huddle under the blankets and stay warm?”

  6. On weekdays I have to feed my dog, then on weekends I might be willed if I’m really hungry or looking forward to something in particular that day (spouse feeds him)

  7. My main problem was that I would fall back asleep or just stay in bed on my phone after turning off my alarm. So now I set my alarm and leave my phone on my dresser so I have to physically get up to turn it off. Works like a charm!

  8. I just recently started a sleep pattern of 9:30pm to about 5 am! The only way I was able to achieve this (it was accidental) was by smoking marijuana regularly enough at night that it would just absolutely knock me out, and after a while it stuck. I still however have trouble actually GETTING out of bed so a few things I do: set an alarm for a time I assume I’ll be awake, a calming music alarm, and have it placed across the room so I have to stand up to turn it off. I also know the frustration of feeling like there’s nothing to do, No stores open and all your tasks are scheduled for later! I live in rural maine so this may be much easier for myself than others, but I try to take the morning to go outside of just watch the sun be bright and light in the morning, maybe go on a destination-less walk while listening to music. Things like connecting to nature, sun exposure, and light exercise are all just as necessary as any productivity, and I find that starting my day with these things really inspires me to be productive, my to-do lists are very complete on these days :)

  9. It’s something I can control. In a world where my job is stresssful and my family is going nuts being isolated during the pandemic, getting up early is something I can control. Knowing that the events of the day aren’t necessarily mine, that extra time in the morning is highly-motivating.

  10. Don't make "the pandemic" an excuse. Get a project to work on. It could be finding a new job or working for youself, or learning a skill. Becoming better every day is a good reason and it works for me. The better you are the more opportunities you'll have in life.

  11. For me work. I'm a truck driver, driving over the road. Another thing that keeps me getting up is that it's another day closer to seeing my girlfriend and getting my home daily job

  12. I make a to-do list the night before for the next day, and break it down almost hour by hour. I may not follow it to a T, but it gives my days structure and helps me check off things I need to/want to do.
