How to Wake up Happier

We've all heard that people are most productive in the morning. But, being a morning person can be really hard. I mean, it starts with you actually having to wake up, so that kind of sucks. lol. Anyways, today I have a few tips for waking up happier and more ready to attack your day!

  • Meditate before you go to bed - This is huge for me. Now I don’t know if you can call this meditating but it basically. What I do is I say all the things I have to do the next day and then as if to say, ya but look what I did today, I list all the things I did that day. Then I say 2 things thats I did really well that day. Finally, I do some breathing… like breath in for 4 counts and out for 4 counts. This helps me so much because it makes me think about what I have to do the next day, and it helps me wake up more prepared. This also helps me fall asleep and by ending with 2 things I did really well, I go to sleep happy, and therefore by the Law of Syllogism, I wake up happy (Throwback to 9th grade math).

  • Write a short note to yourself - and stick it on your clock. This makes it be the first thing I see when I wake up in the morning. Usually I write something like ‘Hello Gorgeous’ or ‘Rise and Shine’ or ‘The sun’s shining for you’. Sometimes if I have something really exciting that day I’ll write that down like, ‘Grey’s Day’ or ‘Sephora Shipment Comes’ or ‘It’s my Birthday’. Reading these always makes me really happy.

  • Pick a scent that you love - and use it in the morning. This can be in the form of a body lotion, or cream, or perfume. My favorite is the Lush Shower Jelly in Whoosh. Using a scent that you absolutely love really helps you wake up because scent is connected to memory or something like that. No but its true.

  • Find a power song - and listen to it when you wake up. And I don’t mean your favorite song because in the morning, you definitely need an upbeat song. Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol is definitely one of my favorite song but for a power song I’ve been loving Folding Chair by Regina Spector or Let it Go from Frozen cause lets get real here it just amazing. I also recommend to change these up every so often so you don’t get bored out of your mind.

Ok so these are my tips. Leave a comment below if you have any other ideas.
