Here are a few changes to your morning routine that will help you find reasons for joy if you don't love this time.
1. Correct alarm clock
The simplest thing is to install an application that helps you to suffer less when you wake up: wakes you up in a good sleep phase, wakes you up at dawn, suggests a plan for the day, or turns on cheerful music. You can go further and buy a separate alarm clock with a bracelet that accurately counts the phases of sleep based on the pulse. Another option for a stress-free wake up is a dawn alarm lamp. Such a device helps to wake up naturally. Philips has nice models.

2. A reason to smile
Smiling is an effective way to tune in to a positive mood and find the strength to get out of the sweet captivity of the blanket. Start by thinking about something or someone nice. If your memory wakes up much later than you, keep a photo with happy moments, a list of achievements, or a couple of notes with pleasant nonsense near your bed. You can write them yourself, they say, get up, count, great things await you! Positive affirmations work too.
3. Smart bulbs
Cold electric light is the hallmark of thrillers. The genre of the morning will be replaced by a light bulb with a soft warm light or a colored glow, which can be adjusted using the remote control or the application in the phone. There are Xaomi, Philips and domestic brands.
4. Help the body
There are several physical practices that can help the body wake up and reduce the stress of leaving bed. Start with a head massage that will improve blood circulation: knead the temples, the back of the head, earlobes, and the eyebrows. Now it's the turn of the whole body: stretch well or do a few yoga asanas while lying down. Drink a glass of water prepared in the evening - it will make up for the morning lack of fluid and start the digestive system.
5. Music customization
Music is one of the most effective tools for tuning in the right way. Based on your temperament and taste, choose a radio for the morning, an album, collect or find a playlist.
6. Lovely rituals
A shower with aromatic gel (buy several scents at once and change according to your mood), delicious coffee in a beautiful cup and 20 minutes for a new episode of your favorite TV series - all this turns the morning from a nervous race into an important and pleasant part of the day. True, for this you will have to get up a little earlier.
7. Pleasant tactile sensations
One of the problems with awakening during the cold season is physical discomfort. Therefore, pleasant bodily sensations can radically change the attitude towards the morning: warm pajamas, a soft bathrobe, underwear previously warmed up on a battery. Choose clothes that are pleasant to the body and warm.
