Teach Yourself to Wake Up Without an Alarm
Are you tired of being startled awake each morning by the clanging of your alarm clock? Wouldn’t it feel nice to gently wake up naturally at the exact same time each day? Believe it or not, your internal clock can be sufficiently calibrated to do just that. Everyone has an internal clock. Here’s how to teach yourself to wake up without an alarm.
Leave Your Blinds Open a Little
Natural sunlight in the morning helps tell your body that it’s time to wake up. Leave your blinds, curtains or shades up just a little bit to allow some natural light into your bedroom in the morning. You don’t have to sacrifice privacy – just a small amount will work to lighten the room when the sun rises.
Build a Consistent Routine
Your body will quickly adjust if you implement a consistent schedule for when you go to bed and when you wake up. Start going to bed at the same time every night and set your alarm for the same time every morning. Keep up the routine on the weekends, too. After just a few days or a week, your internal clock will be calibrated.
Tell Yourself to Wake Up At That Time
When you tuck in for sleep, tell yourself mentally that you will be awakening at the appointed hour. Your body already has a pretty good idea of what time it is throughout the day. Surprisingly, this mental note works wonders in enabling you to waken at the exact time you want.
Don’t Set Your Alarm
Finally, on a day when you don’t have to work, don’t set your alarm. Allow yourself to wake up naturally. If you’ve practiced these tips, your eyes will actually open at the exact time you specified.
Try these amazing tips, and you’ll see for yourself how this really works. No more startling jolts of clanging in the morning for you!
