    21 Things That’ll Help You Wake Up Earlier In 2020

    Who knows? 2020 might be the year that you finally become a morning person.

    1. An alarm clock that simulates the sunrise to make getting up a slightly more pleasant experience.

    2. Or a super-loud, vibrating alarm clock for people whose main concern is sleeping through their alarms. (Note: This won't wake you up gently, but it WILL wake you up).

    3. A two-minute journal to get you thinking and in a positive mood as soon as you get up. It's also something to look forward to every morning.

    4. A programmable coffee maker for waking up to the smell of freshly made joe.

    5. Or a cold brew maker so you know delicious coffee is waiting for you in the fridge. You can prepare it the day before so there's zero effort required in the morning.

    6. A pack of to-do sticky notes to fill in the night before and keep on your nightstand. When you see it in the morning, you'll realize that you really don't have time to be sleeping in.

    7. A pair of leggings to keep by your bedside — put them on first thing in the morning and start a yoga sesh, head out the door for a run, or walk the dog. You'll feel awake as soon as you get moving!

    8. A small, but mighty space heater so you're not tempted to stay in bed all day because your apartment is freezing.

    9. A lemon-scented body wash — it smells so amazing, you'll literally leap out of the bed and into the shower.

    10. A pair of fuzzy slippers, because just the thought of your bare feet touching the cold floor is enough to make you recoil back under the covers. No more!

    11. A trio of facial sprays to spritz on your face as soon as you open your eyes. The scents will leave you feeling invigorated, and you won't want to hit snooze again.

    12. A waterproof speaker that'll motivate you to jump into the shower and listen to your favorite podcast or morning playlist.

    13. A pretty garment rack for planning out the next day's outfit (or even outfits for the whole week) so you can look forward to getting dressed in the morning.

    14. An annoying, but effective app that'll force you to get up and take a photo of a designated place in your home in order to turn off the alarm.

    15. A breakfast sandwich maker, because you're more likely to get up if you know you'll get a delicious treat as a reward.

    16. An insulated tumbler (with a lid) to fill with ice water before bed and keep on your nightstand. Take a sip when you first wake up and you'll immediately feel more alert.

    17. A light therapy lamp to help you feel more awake and energized on those dark winter mornings when you just can't seem to get out of bed.

    18. A helpful book with actual tips on how to get up earlier and live your most productive life — it just might turn you into a morning person.

    19. A powerful Ninja blender for treating yourself to a delish smoothie after your morning workout session.

    20. A genius app that'll analyze your sleep cycle and wake you up in the lightest sleep phase — the natural way to wake up feeling rested and relaxed.

    21. A Yes To Coconut scrub and cleanser stick made with coffee so you can look awake in the morning even before having your cup of joe. It'll provide just the right amount of exfoliation without being too harsh or drying, thanks to coconut oil in the formula.

    This is you in 2019...
