Getting out of bed in the morning can be seriously tough. When it’s 6 a.m. and it’s still dark outside and all you want to do is snuggle under your covers and nap until noon, dragging yourself out of bed can feel like a truly herculean task.
There’s no shame or blame in the struggle. If you’re the type of person that hits the snooze button and needs an extra large double shot of espresso just to get your day started, we get it.
That’s why we’ve put together this compilation of 10 morning motivation quotes to help you start your day the right way.
But first, let’s look at why it can be so difficult to wake up early.
Why Is Getting Up in the Morning So Difficult?
Some people seem to have a gift for waking early. These early morning larks can rise with the sun feeling vibrant, energetic, and alert.
So, why is it so difficult for some of us to haul ourselves out of bed?
Well, it might have something to do with your circadian rhythm: the 24-hour physiological cycle linked to brain wave activity, hormones, wakefulness, and sleep.
If you’re having serious trouble waking up in the morning, your circadian rhythm could be out of whack.
One of the best ways to get yourself on track is by setting a strict wake-up time — yes, even on the weekends. The more consistent you are with your sleep schedule, the better equipped your body will be to adjust.
You can even try supplementing with melatonin: the hormone created by the pineal gland that initiates the sleep cycle in our bodies.
Melatonin can be a great tool to help get your sleep cycle back on track. But melatonin has been proven to lose its efficacy in the long term, so try not to become too reliant on it.
These tricks could help you become better at waking up in the morning, but it will take some practice and application.
