8 Ways To Wake Up Quicker

This series, The Bedroom Edition, includes all posts about creating your bedroom as a peaceful, restful place. Get the insight from experts and create your bedroom to be most beneficial for your body’s sleep.


Take a cold shower in the morning. This is great for the skin too! Ice cold may not be something you’d like, so we mean lukewarm or room temp—it works just as well.

Get a workout in at the gym, or even at home. Getting your body up and moving will energize you right away, and for the rest of the day.

Let natural light wake you up by sleeping with your curtains open.

To avoid snoozing your alarm, place your phone across the room. This way, when your alarm goes off, you’ll be forced to get out of bed to silence it. Without the temptation of snoozing your alarm, you’ll be up on time. 

Drink water as the first thing you do after you open your eyes. The night before, we like to prepare water with a piece of lemon and place it on the bedside table. No excuses to drink that water! 

Smell peppermint or eucalyptus. The best way is to add essential oils into a diffuser and have it ready for the morning as you get ready. 

Making your bed is the first task you can complete for a successful day. But more than that, it gets you moving around the room. 

Unplugging from phones and laptops about 30 minutes before bed can contribute to a better night of sleep. According to The Sleep Judge, the blue light emitted from screens can alter your body’s natural melatonin levels, making it more difficult to fall asleep. Therefore, an earlier bedtime with zero interference from tech can leave you feeling happier and more energized the next day.
