Carpe Diem! Here’s How To Get Your Butt Out Of Bed And Face The Day — You Know You Need This Advice

Do you have trouble getting out of bed in the morning? If so, you’re not alone. The Center For Disease Control has actually called inadequate sleep — the main cause of trouble waking up in the morning — “a public health epidemic.”

But there are very specific, and helpful, steps that you can take to make waking up in the morning not only easier, but a great experience. How you feel in the morning sets the tone for your whole day, so waking up feeling like you want to seize the day — carpe diem! — will make your whole better, especially compared to rolling out of bed feeling like you just want to roll back in.

This short video from our wide-awake friends at BuzzFeed is filled with helpful, concrete actions that with a little practice will leave you actually looking forward to getting up in the morning.

One of the most important steps you can take is spending a few minutes thinking about exactly why you want to get out of bed. That may seem like silly question to ask yourself. You’re alive, right? You’ve got to catch the bus, or make breakfast for the kids — or just get going with the daily routine.

But that’s the problem. When all you have to look forward to is the same old routine, well, it’s no surprise that you’d rather stay in bed. Take time to decide, as specifically as possible, what you want to do in the morning — and what makes you happy.

Is it going for a run? Spending time with your family? Or perhaps you’d like your morning to be your own personal quiet time, to meditate, breathe, or contemplate exactly what you want to accomplish for the rest of the day.

Whatever you look forward to in the morning, knowing your motivation will help you move into each day with enthusiasm, rather than dread or weariness.

Give it a try. Then watch this BuzzFeed video and take action to make these tips on how to get out bed better a regular part of your life.
