We recently asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to tell us what their best tips for getting out of bed in the morning are. Here is their advice... 1. For goodness sake, don't hit snooze. Flo Perry / BuzzFeed "Don't hit snooze – get right up, get a good workout, and eat breakfast. Having a solid routine is key." — ammt09 2. And make an effort to get up as soon as your alarm goes off.

Try to go to bed at the same time every night and get up at the same time every morning (yes, even on the weekends!). Your body will get into a rhythm and naturally start coming out of deep sleep on its own. Most mornings my body even wakes me up 20 minutes before my alarm!"— elizabethm4354b29dc 4. Drink water as soon as you wake up.

Something about hydrating yourself first thing in the morning makes everything better. NO CAFFEINE! It becomes a crutch and loses its effectiveness."— panther718 5. But if coffee works for you, that's OK too. Maritsa Patrinos / Kayla Yandoli / Sally Tamarkin / BuzzFeed "When you wake up think about how each day, you get to better self! Plus always have amazing coffee in the morning."— paigep499334e7a 6. Get outside and exercise.

Give your alarm a personalised message. Sohan Judge / BuzzFeed "My first alarm (I usually use about five as 'just in case' alarms) is labeled 'Trust me'. I use it as a message to myself that even if it doesn't feel good to hop out of bed right at 6:00am, I will definitely have a more fulfilling, energised day if I get up and stick to my morning routine. Every time I see the alarm go off and it says 'trust me', I think... Alright, you're right. You're right! and I get out of bed and get after my day. I haven't been wrong yet."— EasyDeej 8.

Lay out everything you need for the day before you go to sleep. Flo Perry / BuzzFeed "I usually get straight up and go into the shower. To help myself, I have my hair dryer ready and all my clothes. I keep bottles of water to take with me in the fridge with a granola bar, gum packet, and my stuff. I put my clothes out the night before. It's so much easier than destroying my room to find everything before running out the door."— Linky 11. Write a list of your tasks ready for the day ahead.

But I did finally break myself of my snooze-button habit. I put a chalk board on the wall I wake up looking at, and each night before going to sleep I update it with all the important tasks that need to be done in the morning. This prevents me from thinking I have nothing to take care of and going back to sleep."— emmag48a366955 12. Move your alarm away from your bed so you physically have to get up to turn it off.

Do something relaxing as soon as you wake up. Gena-mour Barrett / BuzzFeed "When I get up I have a coffee and set some time aside to play with my dog and read a meditation. That way, I know when I get up I have some time to ease into the day."— jessicab45bac3e5e 14. Don't check your phone until you've actually got ready. Flo Perry / BuzzFeed "Don't sleep with your phone by your bed. Get an alarm clock and put it where you will have to get up to turn it off. Don't go back to your bed afterwords – go eat something instead or put clothes on or take a shower, whatever wakes you up the best. Try not to check your phone till you are all done with your morning routine, it will only distract you."— mayalovre 15. Turn on your light as soon as you wake up.

If you need to, turn on every single light you have. The light is vital, it helps wake up your brain. Lay out, the night before, clothes for the day.

Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF BBC "I give myself time to wake up gradually (a whole hour before I actually have to wake up) and check my social media before I even get out of bed. It affords me the lazy time I desperately need in the morning so I don’t feel rushed and out of sorts. I know people say it’s bad to check social media as soon as you wake up but it helps me feel like there is time in the day to relax and do something mindless if I want. You don’t have to be productive to be a morning person."— lexiet2 19. And finally, try to go to bed early and make sure you're actually getting enough sleep.
