#Staying In Bed
The more you put off getting out of bed, the harder it will be. Not only that, but the sluggish and lazy feeling will follow you throughout the whole day.

This can help motivate you to get up and turn it off, consequently waking you up and getting you out of bed. A good tip to follow if you have a hard time waking yourself up is to inhale and exhale deeply three times.

#Staying In The Dark
In order to make it easier for you to get up and out of bed, it is necessary to let in natural sunlight. This will help illuminate the room, giving your body a natural cue that it’s time to wake up. If you leave your room dark for long, or have really heavy drapes that don’t let any light in, it’s much easier to fall asleep again, as well as lose track of time.
