How I Became an Early Riser 成功人士决不能忽略早起的重要!

How I Became an Early Riser

For many years, I hated having to wake up early for school. When I started working, I found that it was really tiring to have to work a full day, sleep late and then wake up early again the next day. Fortunately, in recent years I have managed to develop a liking for early mornings. Needless to say, when I no longer dread leaving my bed every morning, I feel much happier and more productive.

If your life requires you to wake up early, or you want to develop a habit of waking up early, here are some of my tips that can hopefully help you:

1.Allow yourself to sleep earlier. You might be used to staying up late, perhaps watching TV or surfing the Internet. But if you continue this habit, while trying to get up earlier, sooner or later you’re going to give up on trying. I suggest going to bed earlier, even if you don’t think you’ll sleep. You just might fall asleep much sooner than you think.

2.Don’t make drastic changes. Start slowly, by waking just 15-30 minutes earlier than usual. Get used to this for a few days. Then cut back another 15 minutes. Do this gradually until you get to your goal time. You would be surprised by how well this little trick works, and it even applies to other lifestyle changes, such as your diet or exercise routine. Small, sustained changes go a long way.

3.Do not rationalize! Do not allow yourself to think about sleeping “just 5 more minutes”. If you allow your brain to talk you out of getting up early, you’ll never do it.

4.Put your alarm clock far from you bed. If it’s right next to your bed, you’ll shut it off or hit snooze. Never hit snooze. If it’s far from your bed, you have to get up out of bed to shut it off. By then, you’re up. Now you just have to stay up.

5.Go out of the bedroom as soon as you shut off the alarm. Don’t allow yourself to rationalize going back to bed. Just force yourself to go out of the room. My habit is to stumble into the bathroom and start brushing my teeth. By the time you’re done washing up, you’re already wide awake.

6.Allow yourself to sleep in once in awhile. Despite what I just said in the previous point, once in awhile it’s nice to sleep in. As long as it’s not a regular thing. I do it maybe once a week or so.

7.Give yourself something to look forward to. Make waking up early a reward. This is where you got to activate that reward system in your brain. For me, it is to make myself a good cup of coffee. Once I got used to that, it becomes much easier to climb out of bed because I know there is something good waiting for me.

8.Enjoy the break of dawn! If the view outside your window is so much as decently attractive, take a look at it and think happy thoughts. Let positivity fill you, and remind yourself of the good things in life. Watch the sky light up. It’s beautiful, and it’s quiet and peaceful. Early mornings are now my favourite time of the day.

Are you also an early riser? What do you do to keep yourself from pressing that snooze button? I would love to hear from you!

成功人士决不能忽略早睡早起的重要!

有好几年,我非常痛恨早期上学,当我开始工作时,我发现晚睡、第二天早起再工作一整天真的好累……

后来我觉悟了,明白这样的作息长期下来是在消耗体力与精神,于是我积极的调整自己的作息时间,到后来我深知不会再赖床,也发现早睡早起的乐趣,我也变得更健康了!

若你的生活需要你早起,又或者你想建立早起的习惯,希望我的建议能对你有所帮助。

1.请尽量早睡。很多人有在睡前看电视节目或是上网的习惯,结果越拖越迟,越来越晚睡,第二天就完全没有精神!你能做的就只有建立早睡的习惯,到了睡觉时间,请立刻躺上床,要不然你一定没办法早睡!

2.别太着急。一切慢慢来,先让自己习惯早起约15-20分钟,当你习惯早期的感觉后,在早起个15分钟,于此类推,你就能达到早起的目标。这样的循序渐进的方式也能用在其他的地方,比如运动或是减肥。

3.别给自己藉口。”再多睡5分钟“的藉口只会让你更不愿意早起而已,请别再这么做!

4.闹钟最好远离你的床。喜欢赖床的人一定会在闹钟响的那一霎那迅速按掉声响,那你就可以永无止尽的赖床。将闹钟放远一点,那么你势必要起床去按闹钟,那么就可以早起了!

5.按了闹钟后就直接走出你的房间刷牙洗脸吧,不要再让自己有机会在睡回笼觉。

6.偶尔可以让自己赖床,请记得,要有节制能力!

7.让自己对美一体有所期待,那你就不会觉得早起很痛苦!对我而言,一顿美味的早餐就是我的每早的期待,当我习惯这样的生活模式后,我渐渐觉得,早起是一件很美妙的事情。

感受早晨的美景!试想像,打开窗户就能看见房外美景,大自然的美丽将会让你心情变好。你可以在晨光中找到对生命的动力,会让你更期待接下来的一天。这是我一天之中最喜欢的一刻,因为这时刻我最平静。

你也跟我一样喜欢早起吗?是什么愿意让你喜欢早起?欢迎你跟我分享你的故事!
