Getting Up Made Easy

Lifehacker has a short post on changing habits and things to do to make getting up early easier. Here’s an idea for you: Set your alarm and get your lazy asses out of bed. Life changing, isn’t it?

Seriously, get up between 4 and 5 every day and most of us including myself are much more productive in the morning than later in the day. The hint that is given helps though. Write down why you are getting up and it will help to reinforce the idea in your head. Once you’ve done it for a month it will be easier because anything you do for 28 days generally becomes a habit. The trick to making it easy is to get up at the same time EVERY DAY. If you get up at 6 Monday through Friday and then sleep until noon all weekend it is going to be much harder.
