5 Tips to Get Your Booty Out of Bed!
As a #TIUgirl, you know your Booty Call boosts your metabolism, ups your energy, and releases those feel-good hormones. But sometimes the snooze button is JUST. SO. TEMPTING! Especially during the fall, when the sun rises later in the morning. (Trust us, we get it – waking up before the sun’s up is really tough!) We’re here to help you become the boss of that snooze button! Preparation is key to ward off those sleepy feels, and we’ve got you covered. Morning, beautiful!
Prep your java buzz
Waking up to coffee already made will get you out of the sheets and on your feet, especially when you can smell it from your room! If you have a coffee machine with a timer, set it to start right when you wake up. Or for an iced brew, pre-make a batch and put it in a large mason jar the night before. You can prep enough for up to four days! In the morning, pour yourself a glass over ice and you’re ready to go! ;)

Stick to a sleep schedule
When it comes to snoozing, your body likes to stay consistent. In fact, a study done by Brigham Young University found that waking up and going to sleep at the same time each day is associated with lower body fat!
Plan for eight hours of rest each night. For example, if you set your alarm at 6 am for your Booty Call, hit the hay by 10 pm. Set a reminder on your phone to start winding down 30 minutes before bedtime. This will help you feel more rested when your alarm goes off in the morning,
Get out and about
As soon as you wake up, take a step outside! The fresh air will energize your body. If it’s too rainy or chilly for a stroll, try opening a window and breathing in the fresh air. We love doing this! A taste of the outdoors will help clear your head and prep you for the day to come!
Open your curtains
Your body has an internal clock that resets itself with the morning sun. Give your bod the go-ahead to start your day by letting sunlight filter into your room. If your schedule requires you to get up while it’s still dark out, try a dawn simulator alarm clock. It slowly brightens your room before you’re set to wake, easing you out of sleep.
When all else fails…
Things happen. Sometimes you sleep in a little later than you planned, and it’s okay. That’s what a backup plan is for! When you’ve accidentally hit the snooze button, we have the perfect workout for you! As long as you have 10 minutes to spare, you can get your heart rate up, raise your metabolism, and tone every part of your body with the Snooze Button Workout! Try it out HERE!
