Hey, I need some help. I can't seem to get up in the morning. I have my alarm set for six, and I am trying to be all ready for the day by seven, so I can work on school at eight. (i am home schooled) I just seem to fall asleep, even if I get my computer out and do exercises! (not on the computer , of course.)

Can anybody help me?

Hey Bonnie, what's your night time routine? You may need to move bed time back half an hour or try some yoga to relax before bedtime. Not the strenuous poses but relaxing poses and some deep breathing/meditation to see if your sleep improves.

My night routine is this: 7:00 eat supper 9:00 get ready for bed brush teeth, change 9:30 get in bed and start work on computer. I think I will start doing yoga, thanks for the suggestion!

One thing I would suggest is use the bed for sleep only. If you've got computer work to do I'd suggest doing that away from the bed. The bed is our way of signaling our brain that its time to shut down and rest but activities stimulate our brain and even after our activities are over the brain needs time to wind down which cuts into our sleep time. Seems weird but does make a difference to how well we sleep at night. Good luck! :)

Thanks, Anthony. I had not thought of that before! I will try all of your suggestions tonight and tomorrow!

Let me know how it goes. You may need to try it for several days before seeing any real change, good luck and hang in there! :)

I get up at six aswell everyday for school, sometimes I find it hard but Turing the lights on or putting loud music on helps me get up.. I will also make a hot drink and walk around to wake me up aswell!

I sometimes have the same problem being homeschooled what I normally do is turn the lights on and also have my alarm across the room so no matter what I'll have to get up at least to turn it off, and sometimes I wake up a little earlier so I can wake myself up before working out

Getting in the shower in the morning always helps me wake up!

I just get up and get to moving, hard to sleep when your moving. If your sitting and you feel yourself getting tired just stand up it works lol and drink water

If you wash your face it helps you wake up in the morning, and helps you feel refreshed for the day! Also, I heard that instead of drinking coffee in the morning to wake you up, to eat apples because they wake you up better than caffeine!

Put your alarm clock somewhere across the room or even better hide it.  So that you have to get out of bed to turn it off.

It works .. Just look at the stupid time i am writing this . . 4.35am lol
