Well this could be the topic i would love to write about because i myself tried it a lots of time and succeeded most of the times …so here are the top 50 tips to be the morning star
1.Don’t make drastic changes: start by waking 15-30 minutes
earlier than usual, then gradually cut back more minutes, until
you get to your goal time.
2. Sleep earlier: To get enough sleep. Makes sense!
3. Put your alarm clock far from your bed: This way you’ll
have to get up out of bed to shut it off. Now, you are up and all
what you need to do is to stay up.
4. Force yourself to go out of the bedroom as soon as you
shut off the alarm: Don’t go back to bed for any reason and
reject any self talk that tries to convince you to do so. Don’t
rationalize. You know that voice that always tells you to stay in
bed for another 10 mins.
5. Find something pleasurable to do when you wake up: like
reading, writing, listening to music, exercising, watching a
movie, watching the sunrise or meditating, or even playing
6. Take advantage of the extra time: Between 4 am and 7 am
you can accomplish much more than many people do the
entire day. It’s a super productive period. Try to finish the
important tasks first or maintain useful habits like exercising.
7. Enjoy the break of dawn: It’s the most quiet and peaceful
moment of the day.
8. Go To Bed And Get Up At The Same Time Every Day: your
body will handle it more easily if you keep the same circadian
9. Give A Promise To Wake Up Early: Works best with your
family members, friends, etc. Show everyone you can stand
behind your words!
10. It Takes 3 Weeks To Make A Habit: 3 weeks are enough
for building an early wake up habit. Don’t worry, you won’t
feel uncomfortable waking up early till the end of your life!
Just commit that you’re going to do it no matter what in the
next 3 weeks.
11. Let The Music Wake You Up: Set your alarm device to play
your favorite song and set the time of alarm. What could be a
better way to wake up?
12. Take A Nap In The Afternoon: It’s recommended that you
sleep for no more than 30 minutes, or you will feel drowsy
after waking up.
13. Sleep With Fresh Air: Open a window or take a walk
outside before going to sleep. This will increase the oxygen
level in your body and hence enjoy a deep sleep and a
refreshed wake up.
14. Ask Someone Who Wakes Up Early To Wake You Up: You
feel as you have to get up because you don’t want that person
to think they wasted their time on you and think you’re looser.
15. Create A Reward System For Yourself: reward yourself
with something you want (like buying a new piece of cloth or
gadget), if you could wake up early everyday for 3 weeks
16. Do Not Eat Before Going To Bed: Have a light snack 2
hours before sleep time the latest. You can’t fully sleep while
your organs stay awake digesting food.
17. Have Something Important To Wake Up For (or a good
reason to wake up): It will play as a strong compelling reason
to take yourself out of the bed.
18. Use Multiple Alarm Clocks: Here is a brilliant trick: use 2
alarm clocks, and put your second alarm clock in another
room. The need to turn it off before it starts waking up the
whole family automatically becomes your “next action” to do
as soon as first alarm goes off. You’ll get off the bed quickly
because you know in 5 minutes another alarm clock in another
room will go off, and that’s not what your family will
19. Practice Waking Up: That’s a wild trick by Steve Pavlina.
He suggests that you practice waking up like you do with any
other skill you want to learn. During the day set the conditions
as close as possible to what they are when you go to sleep at
night. Set your alarm for a few minutes ahead and practice
standing up when the alarm goes off. Your goal is to put your
subconscious mind to work. Alarm goes off – you stand up.
Alarm goes off – you stand up. Rinse and repeat.
20. Create a morning ritual that is easy to follow: Your goal
is to program yourself to follow a plan that will make your
morning pleasurable and productive. Example, wake up at 4:00
am, pray, read for an hour, when the sun rises go for a 15
minute walk around the block, take a shower, write, eat
breakfast, go to work.
21. Avoid Alcohol, Tobacco And Caffeine: If you can’t avoid
some of these stimulants completely then at least try to avoid
them in the evening within 4-6 hours of bedtime.
22. Use a glass of water: Put a glass of water near your alarm
clock (make sure to put an alarm clock far enough from your
bed, otherwise you can hit the glass of water) and drink the
water first thing as you wake up. This will awaken your body’s
23. Don’t sleep in for long hours in the weekends: it breaks
your sleeping pattern and your body clock will not like it.
24. Start Your Morning With A Puzzle: What a wild trick. Put
your alarm clock in a place where it can’t be easily turned off.
For example, bring a chair, put an alarm clock high on the
cabinet, then put your chair back into another room.
25 . Create right associate: According to Tony Robbins, “We
are all driven by the need to avoid pain, and the desire to gain
pleasure.” Create a list of pleasures associated to waking up
early and another list of pains associated to NOT waking up
26. Track Your Early Wake Up Progress: Put a calendar on
the wall and mark every day when you wake up early. As you
see your achievements, you’ll be inspired to continue the habit.
27. Understand Sleep Mechanics: Knowledge is power. When
you understand more about sleep mechanics, you’ll be able to
make smarter decisions. The most important thing about sleep
mechanics is that we sleep in cycles of around 90-110 minutes
each. A good time to wake up is at the end of each cycle. So try
to adjust your alarm to turn on a the end of a sleeping cycle.
For example, to wake up at 4:00 am, you have to sleep at 10:00
pm to have 4 cycles of sleep approximately. Or try setting your
alarm an hour and a half before you have to get up, then
resetting it to the proper time when it goes off. You should
wake up more alert, since you have finished a complete sleep
28. Advertise Your Early Wake Up Habit: A good trick is to
start a blog and record your progress so that you friends and
family can monitor you.
29. Wake Up And Smile! That’s it.
30. Start Your Day Well: Replace any negative thoughts or
thinking about problems by something pleasant and optimistic.
What could be better than reading a good inspiring book.
31. Wake Up With the Sun: As soon as the alarm goes off,
expose yourself to a bright light (ideally – to sun light) and you
won’t get back to bed again!
32. Avoid Sleeping Pills: Sleeping pills depress the central
nervous system, and their effect may extend after you wake up.
33. Strike with Overwhelming Force: Use several or ALL the
tips shared in this post all at once! It’s fun to try.
34. Change your sleeping pattern in one day: This is the
opposite of “Don’t make drastic change” tip. It works well for
some personality types who are only motivated when they see
faster results and flexible or used to abrupt changes.
35. Set Your Alarm for Bedtime: This will remind you to leave
anything you do and go to bed. The leftovers can make a good
compelling reason to wake up early to finish them.
36. No Snooze Ever! It is very stressful. You neither get up or
get good sleep. 10 more minutes of sleep isn’t going to make
you any less tired.
37. Remove the option completely: Schedule meetings or
deadlines early in the mornings.
38. Have a similarly motivated buddy: You’ll help each other
to stay motivated and on track.
39. Experiment: Review your progress and see what works and
what don’t. Experiment different tips and see what was easy
and did the job for you. Keep experimenting different wake up
time or going to bed time until you find a healthy balance you
40. Make your bedroom a partner: A great bed, better pillow
textures and form, and comfortable sheets will help you sleep
better and deeper.

the same time appropriate with the weather condition and your

to sleep with a negative last thought in your mind.

prepared with a thicker coat to wear when you wake up.

morning routine, have a night routine that helps your body
45. Don’t go on the computer: or play video games at least 2
hours before you go to bed.
46. Eat . A bit of yogurt or protein when you wake up to
stimulate your mind.
47. Hot/Cold shower: Get a hot shower in the morning, and
end it with a little bit cold shot. This will shock your body and
often will help you wake up.
48. Prioritize: You won’t be able to get things done as you’re
used to. So, prioritize your tasks during the evening, so that
you start your day out doing the most important tasks first
thing in the morning.
49. Prepare for tomorrow morning: Try to do as much during
the evening to allow for an easy, hassle-free wake up.
50. Stop Believing The Myths: There’s nothing like a
“morning” or “night person”. Human bodies can adapt to
anything. You just have to be consistent until you develop the
