How to be in the morning?
Here is a relevant question… For those who get up before noon, obviously…

Here are some practical and simple tips to start your day with a smile to your ears.

Choose your alarm clock

Prefer to wake up with a soft music, a radio station where the styles of music are calm and relaxed (classic, jazz …) or opt for the cream of the cream: the famous awakenings ‘natural’.
They emit sounds of nature in a crescendo way, simulate a sunrise in your room, or change light slowly to accompany the songs of birds…
The choice of the alarm clock is above all personal. Once you have chosen the awakening of your dreams, get used to waking up in a good mood!
And above all: keep up the pace. Indeed, the best morning habit to take is to get up every day at the same time. It gets used to our body and mind to have a rhythm. Changing constantly time and rhythm is very tiring, both morally and physically.
Tip: put your alarm clock away from your bed. This will force you to get up to turn it off. The blood circulating in your body will be boosted when you take a few steps. It will be harder for you to come back and snuggle into Morpheus’s arms…

Delaying your alarm by constantly pressing the snooze button will not bring you any extraordinary benefits… On the contrary! You will unconsciously get used to the possibility of going back to sleep after the alarm clock. Moreover, by waking up every 5 minutes, your sleep will not be deep, so not restorative.
