How to crack waking up in the morning

Do you have trouble waking up in the morning, well here are a few tips to help you?


  • Buy a pet – cats or dogs are brilliant at waking you up. Their persistence knows no bounds. A face full of slobber from a dog is a sure way to wake you up. Alternatively being stabbed by a cat’s claws has the same effect.



  • Have children – this will permanently work as each morning their bright faces excited about a new day will be thrust into your face until you get up. If this does not work then their constant bouncing on exhausted body ought to.



  • Use a silly alarm – my favourite was a train that screamed at you “get up the train is leaving” hooting continually. Unfortunately, it got smashed by my husband who didn’t want to get up at the same time as me.



  • Forget to tidy your bed of lego or biscuit crumbs – sharp objects or irritating bits of food cause irritability to the body, thus making the bed uncomfortable to stay asleep in. Getting up and cleaning it will make you get out of bed.



  • Sleep in a room with a dripping tap. This annoying noise will repeatedly irritate you during the night and morning will be a blessed relief when you get up.
  • Buy a recording of a baby crying. That maternal or paternal instinct will kick in willing you to nurture the baby until of course, you realize you don’t have an infant in need of your help. Heyho you are awake so you may as well get up!

For over fifty years I have laughed and cried through my life – it has been exciting, exhausting, emotional, challenging and infuriating. No one gave me a map or a ‘How to get out of stressful situations’ manual, to help me on my journey. Instead, it has been God and me, His Word and my mistakes. So let’s cut to the chase, I am a wife and mother of three almost adult children! I live in the South of England and dislike the rainy climate. Yes, it looks green but so does my face with little sunshine! With many occupations under my belt, I now spend my time writing – for my blog which includes book reviews, interviews some humorous pieces and a book called "How to Make Victoria Sponge." I also have some devotionals in a multi-author book "Heartwings Devotional. My life is hectic; I am disorganised, and God continually sorts me out. I hope my words bring you hope, comfort and laughter as I sit here in my dining room praying for inspiration and for the cat to get off my laptop!
