Aside from stating the obvious, which is just stepping out of bed, I am one of those people who don’t consider themselves a morning person. With that said, whenever I force myself out of bed really early, I feel really happy about my level of productivity, but Jezzz, getting out of bed on the first place is such a struggle. I guess its partly because I love sleeping and partly because I was probably a bear in my other life so I am not going to blame myself at all, its in my genes!

I share this because I have tried so many things to get me out of bed without having someone throwing water on my face while I am still in it, or making my bedside table a coffee station, with my OCD that would NEVER work…As I was reading upon some remedies on the internet, I came across with one that seemed a bit too simple to be effective but it works! and finally I can kiss my; “I CANT GET OUT OF BED!” problems goodbye. Maybe…

So what is it?, Simple >> Go buy strong mints at your local convenient store or supermarket. You know, the ones you buy when you are about to go on a date and you want your breath to smell like you drank the whole bottle of Listerine? (you aren’t supposed to drink listerine by the way). Keep the mints on your bedside table and as soon as your alarm goes mental, take a mint and place it in your mouth. Apparently the sugar and the strength of the mint flavor wont let you fall back asleep? I don’t know the chemistry reaction that goes behind this but try it tomorrow morning! So far it has worked for me. Finally!

  1. How interesting! I’m definitely not a morning person. Through my whole life being an artist, I’ve never been. Hate mint though. Gotta find some other way to get up?! :-)

  2. great tips,I think it is because the mint in stomach has abilities that it help in digestion and if there is no food yet in stomach then it made produce this acid and then you suddenly become hungry coz acids want to digest and there is nothing , so same i have with vitamin C as i also keep near bed as sometimes have sore throut and with pills on throut. When I take wic C on empty stomach i got hungry and have to get out.

  3. I’m exactly the same way. I feel awesome whenever I wake up to the sunrise (super rare) but almost always I’m just wriggling in my bed sheets in an attempt to procrastinate the inevitable: having to get up. Definitely gonna try your tip cause I need a new method!

  4. andy! i will try this and if it’s working truth me you’ll be my princess morning. I have the same problem as you to wake up in the morning

  5. I buy caffeine pills and keep them next to my bed. There’s 200mg of caffeine in them which is about 2 cups. So pop one when you wake up with one eye open and you’ll be bounding out of bed in ten minutes!

  6. Oh, I am definitely trying this!! I’m with you, once I’m up I’m not grumpy or unproductive. It’s the actual “getting-up” part that’s hard to do. Thanks for the tip!

  7. Yeeepaaaa !!! thanks a lot for this tip cause I have the same issue every morning and then I’m always running late. I will try your tip ;)

  8. You are looking beautiful on bed also. i also like to sleep but when i wake up in the morning i m always late so i have to rush.

  9. i was also an bear in my other life :P thank you sooo much for sharing this with us ;-) i have to try this tomorrow morning :D

  10. Oh my gosh Andy that is such amazing advice! I will definitely be trying that. With these summer days I need to still be productive which obviously has a lot to do with not staying in bed until noon. Thank you again!
