How you feel in the morning is in most cases how you will feel for the rest of the day. And so if you wake up feeling tired you should be ready for a miserable and least productive day.

Everybody always wishes to have that relaxed and refreshed feeling in the morning but only a few achieve it, and this is regardless of the number of hours that you sleep. However, your morning should not always be annoying because there are a few easy things that you can do to ensure that you do not wake up feeling tired.

Here are some five easy ways to wake up early without feeling tired.

Dinner is an important meal that you should not skip because the body needs the nutrition even when you are sleeping. However, if you do not want to wake up feeling miserable and tired make sure that you do not have it just before bed. The best idea is to have it as early as possible or at least 3 hours before going to bed. Digestion is a gradual process, and it takes a lot of time, and so you will not be able to sleep as your body is digesting your heavy meal. It should also be a common knowledge that if you go to bed just after your dinner, the body will divert all the energy and attention to digestion and so you will have a hard time sleeping and hence wake up feeling tired.

#2 Calm Down Before Bed

Stress and anxiety are two things that do not go well with sleep. In fact, any of the two can keep you awake the whole night or prevent your body falling into the vital REM sleep. And so before you get to bed you should spare a few minutes to calm down. Even if you think that you are not stressed, there is always something to worry about and it will be so unfortunate if it keeps you awake. There are many things that you can do to calm down, and they include things like meditation, yoga, and even praying.

#3 Organize your Room

Balancing the energy in your bedroom according to the common Feng Shui principles can be very helpful in ensuring that you sleep well and hence you wake up feeling refreshed. Even if you do not believe in these principles, there are things that you cannot dispute as they make a lot of sense. For example arranging the bed and other furniture in the room to ensure that you cannot only see the door but nothing blocks your path to it will give you some sense of security. Also, make sure that you have a pillow to support your sleep position. Something as simple as a pillow has the power to prevent you from enjoying a good night’s sleep, and so you should not ignore it.

#4 Avoid Caffeine/Alcohol at Night

Caffeine is a stimulant, and so if you take too many cups of coffee in the day or even have one at night, it will keep you awake for many hours. In fact, scientists say that its effects last for close to 12 hours and so your love for coffee might be the reason you are always tired in the morning because the caffeine prevents you from sleeping enough. Alcohol might make you feel sleepy but what you might not know is that it will keep you from slipping into a deep sleep and you are more likely to wake up at night than when you are sober. Apart from these effects, drinking these fluids might also make it necessary to wake up to go to the bathroom, and this will interfere with your sleep cycle.

#5 Take a Warm Shower Before You Sleep

Nothing is more calming than taking a shower just before bed, but this is only so if the water temperature is right. The water should be warm and not too cold or too hot as these temperatures are not beneficial to your sleep. Soaking your body before bed is therapeutic and the best thing about it is that it has an amazing effect on both the body and mind and so it is almost a guarantee that you will nap like a baby and wake up feeling fresh.

If you wake up feeling tired, you will not enjoy your day and will almost certainly affect your performance that day. But, with the above simple tricks in mind, this should never be the case but also remember to exercise and maintain a consistent sleep routine.
