How do I make a commitment to getting up at the same time every day?

I stay motivated knowing that I am making a difference in my life and the people around me. I don’t think of what it would feel like to sleep in. Instead, I think of what it would feel like to get a benefit from getting up. Also, I am just a morning person.

Hahahaaa girl, I still don’t know. If I’m going to give you any piece of advice though, I’d say this: find your reason why. Find your reason to wake up early, whether it’s more time for yourself, or just to drink a steamy cup of coffee while watching the sunrise. Hope this helps!

Find something that you enjoy doing that's good for you. Something small. Enjoying a cup of coffee or tea. Reading a bit from a favorite book. Taking a short morning walk. This app is my favorite motivation. It reminds me to drink water as SOON as I wake up. I follow that with a good breakfast and then the 7 minute workout. Then I take at least a few minutes to do that something small I enjoy! Mine is crochet. If I miss a day its OK! I just make sure I don't go a long time without doing something on my routine. My wake up time is becoming more consistent because of it.

I use some kind of marker to help me set the initial alarm. For me, it's the earliest time medications are due. Next, I'm using the first three fabulous habits to help me wake up more fully: water is the first I do, then either exercise from bed, or breakfast. Then after that I get up. It gives me time to be fully awake. I Just have to work on physically get out of bed after these three habits. Hope some of this helps!

I decided that I would try getting up at 6 for a week after having a month without any type of routine at all. After a week I realised how much I actually got done, but still getting at least 8 hours of sleep. I feel better throughout the day and now when I wake up at 6 I feel energized. I have no tips, just try it.

Set an alarm to go to bed and to get up, every day. If you sleep at the same time every day, you will not have problems to wake up at the same time either.

By having something to wake up for! What I told myself at the beginning when trying to get into the habit of waking up at 6:15am every morning, been at it for over two weeks now, was that I would feed my puppy, Dexter, at 6:30am every morning. By doing so this gave me something to think about, a reminder that I have something else to take care of. For someone else it may be, I’d like to prepare a packed lunch for the day, make that a morning habit. Maybe you’d like to read a book for 20 minutes, or just relax and take a breathe before shooting off to work. Find a reason to get out of bed in the morning and you’ll never want to sleep in again. Good luck!

Start with one small habit and stick to it. Personally, I committed to drinking water first thing in the morning, no matter what! Don't worry about many routines. Just get one and stick to it religiously.

Start by commiting to going to bed at the same time every night, with enough time for a full night's sleep before your desired wake up time.

It is hard. Especially in winter when it is dark and cold.

Going to bed at the same time every night does help with getting up at the same time every morning. Your body will be used to the routine then.

I personally set my alarm everyday, for a realistic time to get up. For me, it's 9:30am. That way I won't keep hitting snooze and feel like I've wasted my morning. It also helps me feel rested to have a realistic wake up time, so I am not still groggy from all the snooze hits!

Since I am young, it is not that difficult waking up early. Of course, there are some days that I feel like I need more hours to sleep, but if I sleep at least 8h it’s okay to get up.
Also, usually in the morning I have classes or go to gym, so I always put an alarm to get up.

if you sleep at 3 am for example. the next day, sleep at 2:30 am, then sleep at 2:00 am the next day untill you find the sweet spot where you can sleep 7 to 8 hours on your target date.

Start small. I have the goal of drinking water so I get up when my alarm goes off and walk to the kitchen and get a glass of water. By doing this I start moving and then stand in the kitchen while I drink my water. This means I walk away from my bed and start my day fresh.

By committing to it and by setting your alarm clock the night before and then commit to getting up that time the next morning

I use Mel Robbins' 5 second rule to count down 5-4-3-2-1-GO and throw off the covers and get out of bed. I do have to modify a little though because of my job. I have to get up 45min to an hour and 45min earlier than non work days thanks to my schedule.

Sleep earlier, fill a water bottle and put next to your bed before you sleep, set an alarm 30 minutes before your intended wakeup time, wakeup and drink the water straight away, your body will do the rest

Valentin P.
Set your alarm: start small, maybe at first it's just 15 mins as earlier. If it's difficult to get up, start heading to bed 15 mins earlier.

If you need more time in the morning adjust that time back a bit more and If you are tired adjust bedtime a bit.
