Drink a glass of water

Drink one glass of water as soon as you wake up. Thinking why? A glass of water can help in stimulating the body and it keeps you awake.

By keeping your alarm across the room, it will help wake you up more easily. You will have to get out of your bed to put off the alarm, the movement creates a burst of energy and you feel active instantly. Once you get up, do not try to go back to bed, if you do, chances are you will fall back to sleep.

Go to the bathroom as soon as you wake up

Set a timer for lights

Lack of light makes it difficult to rise early in winters. It’s a good idea to set a timer on your bedside lamp. The moment your lamp turns on or gets brighter, you will wake up. But do not turn it off, if you do so you will go back to sleep. Try to sit upright on your bed. It will help you in waking up.

Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.
