Here are two methods that I have personally tested that can greatly reduce the pain of waking up early: the 3-minute alarm clock method and the 25-minute coffee method.
The 3-Minute Alarm Clock Method
When this alarm goes off, you will not be violently awakened, but will gradually realize from sleep that I am about to get up. This three-minute advance reminder will allow your body to anticipate and adjust accordingly to the waking behavior that may occur in three minutes, making the waking behavior less painful when the real alarm goes off. For the 3-minute alarm clock method or the double alarm clock method, there are two reminders.
1The 3-minute advance alarm clock is best placed close to your head to prevent the bell from ringing too softly and not achieving the purpose of waking up.
2The advanced alarm clock should not be too intense, progressive wake-up is the best way, you can experiment with the choice of the bell and the appropriate volume before determining
3The formal alarm clock should be placed far away from the bed, preferably you need to get out of bed to turn it off so that you can force yourself to get up. Considering that most people use their cell phones as one of their alarm clocks, to ensure the effectiveness of the double alarm clock method, you can prepare a small alarm clock specifically to enhance the ritual of waking up.
The 25-minute coffee method
This is my original method of waking up early and I can recommend it to everyone with a clear conscience! This question and answer you can not remember anything, but this method I do not allow you to want to get up early do not remember! This method is my original method, so to speak. Here's how: Make yourself a cup of plain black coffee before bed and take it to a convenient place.
Then add an alarm 25 minutes before the determined wake-up time. The next day, when the alarm goes off 25 minutes early, you simply get up and unconsciously drink that cup of black coffee, then go back to sleep and wait until the real alarm goes off so you can get up more easily ~ the reasoning is this.
Caffeine is a chemical that has the effect of driving away drowsiness and restoring energy, but caffeine does not work immediately in the body, after taking it orally, the time for caffeine to fully enter the bloodstream and take effect is exactly 20-25 minutes, so we drink coffee 25 minutes earlier, not only will not affect the next 25 minutes of sleep at the same time also allows the effects of caffeine to play out when we just want to get up This ensures that it is easier to wake up and more energetic.
Some reviews say that for black coffee recommendations, I have tried more than a dozen, the current scientific research has not found long-term consumption of coffee on the human body has any harm, and even some scientists believe that there are benefits to the human body. For the 25-minute coffee method, there are a few points that need to be reminded.
1 coffee must be placed in an easily accessible place because we just get up and drink a cup, never make a fuss, so that the remaining 25 minutes of good sleep time will be greatly reduced.
2 black coffee is very bitter, perhaps need to adapt to a period, but after getting used to it, you will find that it seems to add milk and sugar to the coffee is not so interesting.
3 Many partners raised the issue of drinking coffee on an empty stomach hurts the stomach, after my research, because more stomach acid on an empty stomach does have such a possibility and problem, so we implement the 25-minute coffee method, please be sure to refer to your physical condition do not use blindly, and if possible it is recommended to drink coffee with a piece of toast bread, you can solve the problem of an empty stomach.
Finally, the use of a 3-minute alarm clock + 25 minutes of coffee with better results.
Get everything ready before bed People often let small, insignificant details get in the way, especially when they are trying to make a change. To get up early, we should naturally address all issues that might make getting up early difficult as far in advance as possible before we go to bed.
If you think it's a hassle to get up and get dressed, think about getting dressed before you go to bed and put your clothes on the side of the bed to get ready for the early morning. If you don't like the hassle of getting dressed, then put on your underwear before bed and get ready to get up early. In short, to be successful in getting up early, you can always do enough to prepare before you go to bed, maybe by making a cup of coffee, maybe by drawing the curtains, maybe by thinking about the topic of the article you will write tomorrow when you wake up. Amplify the positive impact as much as possible. Sleep Tips Finally, add two sleep tips
1 Here's a chance for you to pick a free afternoon and have fun sleeping in your comfortable duvet cover set with abandon. The most suitable choice for winter is the comfortable velvet duvet cover set and the most appropriate choice for summer is the satin pillowcase with zipper.Most people have a sleep cycle of about 70-90 minutes, and waking up at the end of the sleep cycle is what makes people feel most relaxed. So it is recommended to create a measurement of your sleep cycle and then rationalize the number of sleep cycles you rest at night, for example, 6 hours is 4 sleep cycles and 7.5 hours is 5 sleep cycles, and as much as possible, allow yourself to wake up at the end of your sleep cycle for a short period, which will make you wake up more relaxed.
How do I measure my sleep cycle? It's simple, find a leisurely afternoon nap, no alarm clock, sleep naturally and then wake up naturally, record the time you spent and then project the length of your sleep cycle as a whole number, for example, if it took 2 hours and 50 minutes, then taking into account the average length of 70-90 minutes, we divide 2 hours and 50 minutes by 2 to get their sleep cycle of roughly 1 hour and 25 minutes.
Keep the habit of napping Keep the nap time in addition to timely replenishment of energy and strength, but also to develop the habit of early to bed and early to rise. About how to nap, after my search research and experiments, the 25-minute coffee nap method also has amazing results, a cup of coffee before bed (note that it is drunk before the nap), and then set the alarm clock for 25 minutes to sleep, the alarm clock should not hesitate to ring should immediately get up, this time through the action of caffeine, you will reap the very good energy benefits.
I believe that we all have similar experiences, that is, too long naps, such as sleeping for an hour, get up instead of waking up even more, or even sleep throughout the afternoon, our ultimate weapon is to introduce the most powerful ultimate weapon about getting up early because, in the final analysis, you have to do well against human nature is still a powerful spiritual force, so this weapon is to believe that: "Once and you similar people do, you must also do Get. "When you get up in the cold, I hope you remember that on the other side of the world, there is a retired Special Forces commander who has been getting up early for more than two decades
No matter how tough it gets, believe me, you are not alone." I know that no matter how much reasoning and approach to understanding is given, even when it has reached the point of hot tears, very few people ultimately succeed in changing themselves. Because many people say they want to change themselves, but that's just talking, but it's also true that some people are reborn a year later. Anyway, I will keep going, see you then if I can, at 4:30 am.
