3 simple ways to internally stimulate waking up early
1. Move your body in small ways
Slowly move your tongue around, then your lips/mouth, then your toes, and finally your fingers – this acclimates your body to the idea of moving.
2. Say action words repeatedly
Say words like power, energy, excitement, etc., under your breath and with increasing energy. Your brain associates these words with a sense of aliveness, which is awakened on some level when you say them.
3. Do a countdown
State to yourself that you’re going to slowly feel more energy to wake up while you count down from 30 seconds to 0, and when you hit 0, you’ll open your eyes and get out of bed.
Pick at least one of the strategies above and try it out tomorrow morning (or do all three)
