There might be a lot of reasons for you to not wake up in the morning. Many of you might be tired of the responsibilities that you have to handle each and every day, others might start feeling restless due to the same routine each and every day.
Sleep is our escape from these things. It keeps us away from the reality and in a dream world. Some of you might not even mind the nightmares because you can’t handle the reality.
While waking up every morning might feel like a chore to all of us we need to become aware of the reality. Ignoring it is never a solution, it might make your problems worse in the long term.
For this, you need to take better care of yourself and that includes waking up early every morning and making plans for your day and sticking to them. You could plan yoga, exercises or plan your work in such a manner that you find time to rest and recover.
Here are few quotes that will give you a swift kick in the ass, so that you won’t require any other incentive to wake up.
1. “I want to live my life in such a way that when I get out of bed in the morning, the devil says, “aw shit, he’s up!”
– Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience
Being a badass is a full-time job. Dreaming of being one and being one are two completely different things. Anyone can dream but only a few have the ability to turn their dreams into reality.
These people are just like any of us. It’s not that they don’t come across any obstacles they just decide that these obstacles don’t matter. They decide to cross the hurdle. And they emerge a victor in this fight.
That is why they have the pleasure of being called successful.
So, stop being scared of the day and wake up because you are going to be the badass anyone would be scared to approach.
2. “She says you’re not awake until you’re actually out of bed and standing up.”
– Richelle Mead, Blood Promise
It’s true, isn’t it? If you keep snoozing your alarm you are bound to be late for whatever you have set the alarm for.
The only way to actually wake up is to get out of the bed and stay out of it once you wake up. It’s not a silly game, that you would get out of it and then jump back into it just prove someone wrong.
When you decide to get out of the bed, you are the one doing it. No one is forcing you to get out of it. You are not doing it because you have to get up for work and you don’t have an option.
Well, you do have an option wake up early because it’s better for you not for anyone else or any other factor.
3. “Be willing to be a beginner every single morning.”
– Meister Eckhart
Not all of us can grasp things at a first read or teaching. Somethings are easier to understand while others take time. Same is true for every individual. They might be better at understanding things but they might not be able to apply it in reality.
So, when you have to wake up every morning think of it as a new adventure. The same adventures you dream about. This one is just as dangerous but unlike your dream adventures that vanish as soon as you wake up these adventures will last you a lifetime.
So, stop just dreaming about those adventures and start taking measure to make them true.
4. “In the morning I get out of bed, I brush my teeth, I wash my face, I get dressed in the clothes I like best. I want to be good to myself.”
– Matthew Dickman
Another reason we hate getting out of bed is a low self-esteem. We hate ourselves and can’t stop thinking about our flaws. Flaws that don’t even exist.
Just remember that you are the only person whose opinion matters the most. What other people say is secondary to what is good for your mental and physical health.
So, stop bending backward for other people. It’s time to work on you. It’s time to pamper yourself, to believe in yourself and to love yourself.
It is simple yet hard. Loving yourself and believing in yourself is tricky but once you do it. You won’t ever need to fear waking up every morning.
5. “To greet a lovely morning, we must leave the night behind.”
– Tarang Sinha, We Will Meet Again…
Regrets make you hold on to the past and keep you from moving forward. These regrets are someone so strong that they consume you and they are all you think about.
So, every morning you wake up these regrets greet you, they haunt you, and they hold you back.
Live your life in such a way that regrets don’t become a part of your life. Make the right decisions, take your time doing them. So, the next time you won’t fear waking up and facing those regrets every morning.
6. “I never wake up in the morning and wonder why I am here. I wake up and wonder why I am not making here better.”
– Jeffrey Fry
Don’t be a victim of the situation. If there is a reason you don’t want to wake up every morning then find a solution to the problem. Otherwise, it’s going to be there every morning and you’ll have to deal it with it and have to do the same every day from then.
Want to see a change? You are the one who can make it happen. So, instead of complaining, get up, work for things and then you can clear that obstruction and wake up every morning without that burden.
7. “Morning Short List
1. Woke up ✓
2. Air to breath ✓
3. Food to eat ✓
4. Roof over head ✓
…yep, it’s a Good day!”
– Russell Kyle, Awakened Living: A Practical Guide to the Spiritual Life
Gratitude. Don’t cry over what you want in your life. People with less than you are happy with their life. You need a change of attitude. You need to start appreciating the things in your life.
Your family, yourself, your job are just a few examples. If you want to change your conditions then you have to be willing to do something about it.
Because procrastination and a will to do nothing has helped no one ever.
So, still think that waking up each morning might be a chore? Well, then you can sleep as much as you want on your day off. It’s okay to do that once in a while but everyday not a good idea. It makes you lazy and it’s not good for your health.
