Is it possible to #SpringOutOfBed? Plus Breakfast in Bed Giveaway

Win a breakfast in bed hamper

Before I had children I worked as a Nanny and had to arrive in work for 7.15am, with a 45 minute commute to work this meant I needed to be up and out of bed by 6am at the latest, of course this was always a struggle but I loved my job so a little forward planning meant it was never really that hard to get into a lovely routine.

I would get my clothes out the evening before, set my make-up ready by the bathroom sink and have my clothes waiting near the shower so I could get dressed and dried almost immediately.

I would wash my hair the evening before as at that time in the morning there is definitely not enough time, shoes would be by the front door and my handbag packed ready to grab last minute on the way out. There would be no time for breakfast but I would eat with the children when I arrived at work.

Now days I am shattered nearly all of the time, the children get ill and instead of being able to work in the day time I find myself working into the night – something which is supposed to have stopped when Harry started Nursery.

Sleep specialists Bed Guru understand that no two people share the same sleeping requirements, for example while I would love 8 hours sleep a night I definitely haven’t had this since I was an early teenager. Some thrive on those 8 hours while others prefer around 6 hours. Children need more sleep than adults, some prefer a darkened room while others prefer a night light.
We are all different and therefore all have different sleeping rituals and patterns.
Bed Guru have asked me to share my top tips for helping to Spring out of bed in the mornings with you – I will share a few however I would love some of your tips as personally now I have broken nights sleep each and every night I struggle a lot to spring up out of my bed.

Top Tips for helping to spring out of bed

  • Place your alarm clock or phone at the other side of the bedroom so you have to get up out of bed
  • Don’t hit the snooze button – you will just keep doing so until you are rushing madly around
  • Get your clothes out and ready before you go to bed, this will give you a few extra minutes in bed and mean you start the day organised and not frantically searching for matching clothes or a suitable outfit
  • Go to bed half an hour earlier
  • No TV or phones at least half an hour before bed
  • Make sure you are comfortable in bed so you get a good nights sleep, a pocket sprung mattress may help you get a good nights sleep
  • Get your breakfast things ready or at least your morning coffee – I used to swear by my teasmade so I had a fresh hot cuppa waiting for me when I first woke up, now I have my cup under my Nespresso machine with the capsule in ready to go
  • Leave the curtains open a little when you go to bed – it is always dark when I get into bed but by 6am or if I am lucky 7am (kids allowing me a lie-in) then the sun is now up and it helps to make me jump up ready to start the day

  1. Set your radio to come on a radio station which plays music you enjoy – makes sure your day starts off well.

  2. To not snooze the alarm and get straight up on the first alarm this also makes you fresher and more awake πŸ™‚

  3. I like to check my daily horoscope so that makes me get up and get my phone or laptop to check what the days has in store for me.

  4. Having to wake up to put my face on before my baby wakes up. Otherwise I will look like ahrek for the rest of the day!

  5. My little boy tends to wake me, his super happy in the mornings so it’s nice to wake up to him smiling!

  6. Just try and get as much sleep as you need, a nice relaxing bath before bed and lavender oil really help me get a good night’s sleep x

  7. I leave the curtains open and if the sunshine wakes me up it’s guaranteed to make me spring out of bed

  8. I need to have a good night’s sleep to feel bouncy in the morning. Winding down with a bath and a book is the way to go

  9. I would love to spring out of bed but am unable due to health problems, but my top tip would be to never watch tv or play computer games in bed before you go to sleep

  10. Go to sleep at night thinking about all the wonderful things you will do in the morning and you will wake up feeling ready to start the day!

  11. Set my alarm clock for sure, however, if I know I have to get up early I always seem to wake up before the alarm

  12. I have a light that imitates natural daylight. I’ve never been a morning person (I’m more of a night owl), but since having children you can’t lie in πŸ™ I really struggled so the hubby bought me one of these lights and it’s absolutely amazing! I can’t believe how much better I wake up, slowly and gently rather then a rush with the loud beeping alarm!

  13. A regular bedtime works for me, and I spring out of bed ready for the day. Even half an hour late to bed and I regret it the next morning!

  14. Getting at least 8 hours sleep a night although this is pretty impossible with my children so I dont usually spring out of bed lol

  15. I have 1yr old twins… I dont have a choice. I don’t normally ‘spring’ out of bed tho πŸ˜€

  16. Waking up to a good radio station with lively music. Makes you want to throw back the covers and boogie

  17. My children both have alarms that go off at different times. They sleep through the racket but I always wake up!

  18. I leave the window open and as I live on a main road the traffic builds up at 7am and wakes me prompting me to move my sleepy head. Also I have loads of early nights keeping hours in my ‘sleep bank’ for the occasional late night.

  19. I don’t have a tip, unfortunately I’m terrible at getting up in the morning & only do it under protest! I blame that fact I was bought up in a pub & am still on opening & closing times πŸ™‚

  20. I’m awful at getting up! I set 5 alarms and still ignore them all for a good half an hour!! Coffee helps lol

  21. I’m awful at getting up! I set 5 alarms and still ignore them all for a good half an hour!! Coffe helps lol

  22. The prospect of long, healthy walks in the glorious weather and gambolling around in the garden. Summer is upon us!

  23. My snooze button – about 3-4 times so I can gradually wake up in time. Works for me anyway!

  24. To get enough sleep, to be honest I never really spring out of bed, I’m not the springy kind πŸ˜‰

  25. Setting my alarm but putting it across the room so I have to get up and can’t just hit snooze x

  26. I also like to prepare the night before by getting my daughter’s school stuff ready and uniform. It saves me a good 10 minutes each morning and I am not frantically searching for things in the morning!

  27. My alarm clock is based on the other side of my bedroom, so when it beeps, I definitely spring out of the bed!

  28. Not sure about springing out of bed, but stagger out and let in some daylight. That helps waking up, and birdsong.

  29. Wake up next to a baby, nothing like opening your eyes to the biggest smile to help you get out of bed

  30. have a daughter that is 5 years old and likes to get in to your bed and play her tablet full blast, gets me straight up every morning!

  31. Having something wonderful to do that day. I’m totally not a morning person, but I don’t half get up early on days when I have a great gig to attend.

  32. A nice bubble bath, a glass of wine (just the one!) and an early night the night before….

  33. Putting my alarm clock out of reach, and making sure I’ve got everything I’ll need for breakfast as ready and prepared as it can be the night before, so I can perk myself up with some food straight away.

  34. Get a dog- they certainly get you to spring out of bed, especially when they are jumping all over you!

  35. Thinking of something good thats happening that day, even if its just a TV programme I want to watch

  36. I think a good night sleep always makes me feel better or knowing that i have something great to eat

  37. I think that either you are a morning person or you are not. It is easier to rise if you stick to a routine, but that means not lying-in at the weekends too.

  38. Waking up to daylight and birdsong is the healthiest way for me to awaken, some nice fresh air also helps. My fiancΓ© says what makes him spring up in the morning is his mobile phone ringing.

  39. Have a cat as your alarm clock. You soon wake up every morning at 5.30 am with his nail gradually being pressed into your big toe

  40. If I get enough sleep, I don’t need encouragement. So my tip is to go to bed earlier if you can…

  41. My mother always said early to bed early to rise and of course I’d recommend a little relaxation before bed to clear your mind better sleep means you will spring out of bed

  42. I don’t have any tips, I hate getting out of bed in a morning! But I would say, get up as soon as the alarm goes off, snoozing it makes it worse!

  43. Not hitting that snooze button – mind you at the moment I’m waking up at stupid-o’clock so no need for an alarm!

  44. Always put the day to rest when you go to bed
    That way you wake up to the joys of s spanking brand new day full of beautiful things

  45. An app. There are several apps that promise to get you out of bed in the morning. Wake n Shake makes you shake your phone in order to turn off the app, while Better Me shares your failure to your Facebook every time you hit snooze. There are also apps, like Sleep Cycle, that use motion sensors to monitor your movement and determine the best time to wake you within a preset window.

  46. my 2 doggies sit by the bed waiting till I open my eyes, they gently start to nudge my arm as soon as it is time to get up, always bang on time!

  47. I’ve never really had to devise a strategy for springing out of bed, first thing in the morning is my best time of day and I’m always raring to go! Maybe it’s because I look forward to the morning’s first cup of tea so much.

  48. This one is not for everyone, but I leave the curtains open, so I wake up to a nice clear hopefully sunny day πŸ™‚ Makes me smile x

  49. Wake up with a natural light if you can. You can buy lamps that give out natural light to help you wake gradually.
