This week I’m sharing two easy but very useful tips you can use to shake off the sleepy blues and pop out of bed happy and alert.
I don’t know if you realized this or not, but the human mind can get so used to certain sounds that you’ll no longer even be aware of them.
With that fact in hand, you can now see why it’s so easy to sleep through or even ignore the familiar ring of an alarm clock you’ve had for years.
So, for the first tip for waking up refreshed, buy at least two more alarm clocks and then switch between them every week.
Even better, purchase one of the new digital alarm units that feature sounds from nature, as well as music.
Sounds that differ from what you hear every day are going to wake you up much better than hearing the same awful buzz most mornings of your life!
The second tip you’re probably familiar with, though you also probably never do it.
Try this tip because it works…
After you drag yourself out of that warm bed, jump start your body by moving it.
That’s right… move.
You don’t have to drop to the floor for twenty push-ups, either.
Instead, stand by your bed and start swinging your arms up and down and then in circular motions.
Wiggle your torso.
Lift those legs up and down a few times.
You’ll be stunned at how well this technique works, even when you think you’re exhausted from not getting enough sleep the night before.
And those, Dear Reader, are the two “wake up refreshed tips” I have for you today.
