How can I make it easier to get out of bed in the morning?

Feeling groggy in the morning and struggling to get out of bed is most often caused by poor quality sleep. One of the best things you can do to improve the quality of your sleep is to clean up your light environment, particularly blue light. Sources of blue light are screens (phone, tablet, TV, computer) and energy efficient lights (LED, fluorescent).

Blue light turns off the release of melatonin, which you need to get into a deep, restful, restorative sleep. EMFs from wifi, cell phones, and cordless phones also reduce melatonin. You want to minimize sources of blue light and EMFs as much as possible and also get blue blocking glasses and wear them once the sun goes down. Additionally cover as much of your skin post sunset as possible because your skin has photoreceptors that detect blue light.

A simple practice to motivate yourself to get out of bed in the morning is to count down from 5 to 1 and then say get up. So 5, 4, 3, 2, 1...get up!
