5 Ways to Wake Up Easier

Jaden McKinnon, Staff Writer

With midterms and exams upon us, sleep schedules are a thing of the past. The late nights  might cause difficulty in the morning for students.

Stop Hitting “Snooze”
Our bodies will not wake up if you only have to lift a finger to hit the aggravating snooze button. Instead, try placing your alarm clock at a more difficult location. This will make you have to physically walk to the clock and wake up faster.

Restful Sleep
A smooth night of sleep equals a smoother morning. Winding down before bed helps to obtain a peaceful rest. Turn off electronics early, read a book, take melatonin or watch ASMR on youtube to help fall asleep.

Caffeine
Although caffeine can become addicting, it can definitely raise energy up. Many other beverages and foods include caffeine other than coffee such as Bai Infusion Drinks and Teami Tea.

Morning Tunes
Put on some classic bops such as “Good Day” by Nappy Roots or “Happy” by Pharrell Williams to wake up. If you can not dance to these songs then there might be some deeper problems you need to discuss with yourself.

Steady Sleep Schedule
Once your body gets back into a routine to waking up early, it will become second nature. As hard as it sounds, try not to sleep in too late on the weekends and start going to bed at the same time every night with consistency.
