5 Motivation Tips to Help You Wake Up Early and Enjoy Greater Productivity

Many of the successful people of our time wake up very early. Why? This is because most people find that the earlier they wake up (within reason) the more productive they are with their day.

Are you striving to be more productive? If so, these tips can help you to get up early so that you can take advantage of those early morning hours and enjoy greater productivity.

It’s important to remember, though, that getting up earlier won’t benefit you if you’re suffering from sleep deprivation. Ensure that you get 7-8 hours of good quality sleep each night. You may need to retire earlier at night in order to get the rest you need.

Going to bed earlier likely won’t cut down on your productivity, because most of us aren’t particularly productive in the late evening hours as we relax after the day’s work is done.

Consider these motivation tips to get your day started off on the right foot:

1. Grab a good coffee machine. This is perhaps the most effective way to wake up early - especially when the coffee is good. If you’re not a coffee drinker, the point here is to enjoy a warm and refreshing beverage to start your day.

2. Eat some fruit. Many people are unsure about which foods to eat in the morning. If you’re looking to get an early start on your day, eating fruit can be one of the better ways to start your metabolism.

Fruit has very fast-digesting sugars and complex carbohydrates to provide great sources of energy.

3. Set your alarm 15 minutes earlier each day. One of the biggest difficulties you may face with getting up earlier is that you may try to wake up at the crack of dawn on the first day, feel exhausted, and then give up quickly.

Instead of that self-defeating process, try setting your alarm 15 minutes earlier each day or so until you reach the time at which you’d like to get up. This will help your body to become accustomed to your new sleep/wake times without such a shock.

When you do this incrementally, your body might not even notice the change. If 15 minutes is too large a change for you, try 10 or even 5 minutes earlier each day.

4. Turn off the alarm. Once your body becomes accustomed to your new time for waking up, you can turn off the alarm. This will help to teach your body (especially if you don't have morning appointments) to wake up at the same time without the annoying, loud sound of an alarm.

5. Set morning goals. Once you’re up early, it's time for you to start getting some extra work done. For your best results, create a to-do list each evening. That way you already have your tasks set out for you each morning when you wake up, so you can get started right away. 

Waking up early is one aspect of our lives that we can all work on, but it can be difficult to get started. Take your time to work on a new schedule and allow yourself to feel comfortable with an early start. Chances are, your body will love it.

Positivity can change your life !

What makes positivity so important? A positive attitude is important for a great many reasons. Having a positive attitude helps you cope more easily with the responsibilities of everyday life and helps to relieve stress and strengthen personal relationships. A positive attitude will help you to avoid worrying unnecessarily and will enhance your physical and mental well-being. We have all had to deal with a ‘Negative Nelly‘ at one time or another throughout our lives. A Negative Nelly is that person who is always full of complaints and is never satisfied with anything that happens in their life. If you have ever been around a ‘Negative Nelly‘ for an extended period of time you know how draining this type of person can be an effect they can have on your own level of positivity. Negativity is exhausting, it takes a ton of effort and it doesn’t do one bit of good for anyone. Having a positive attitude is actually quite easy to achieve. It consists mainly of being aware of your thoughts, ac

Motivation: “When you doubt your power, you give power to your doubt.”

  You know what that voice in your head says…You can’t do it. You’ll never be good enough. You’re going to fail. This voice taunts you whenever you set a goal. It criticizes you when life gets difficult. It beats you down when you struggle to stand up against its running commentary. You know you shouldn’t let self-doubt bother you, but it’s a sneaky critter. Sometimes, you just can’t contain it and it slips past your barriers. And self-doubt is greedy. When it’s loose, it devours your confidence, strips logic and reason from your mind, and steals happiness from your heart. In return, it leaves you with only fear and insecurity. You try to remove self-doubt by forcing yourself to “think positive,” which usually doesn’t work as well as you think it should. The more you fight your self-doubt, the more it fights back. However, with self-knowledge and understanding, you can use self-doubt for your benefit. Identify and ease your doubts. Learning how to recognize when your self-talk takes a

14 Habits of Successful People Checklist

  Those who are successful share a set of habits that help make them the successes they are. Do you have these habits? Use this checklist to check off the ones you already have and practice the ones you wish to develop. Soon, you’ll find yourself building your own success! 1. Organize. One of the most common habits of successful people is that they are organized. This allows them to plan ahead and to set priorities and goals for themselves. Create a “To-do list” each night before bed, so that you know what tasks need to be completed the next day. 2. Relax. To prepare themselves mentally for the work yet to come, successful people tend to use meditation to relax before a task. You can achieve a similar state by making a conscious effort to concentrate on your own breathing for 3-5 minutes. 3. Take action. An important habit - and a natural progression from the planning stage (for those who are successful) - is to take action. Once you make a plan, you must put it into action. Otherwi
