The DOs and DON'Ts of getting up in the morning

It’s not pretty. But this guide will help you through it.

TOMORROW MORNING, you’ll have to get up. And it won’t be nice.

Following this handy step-by-step guide will help you through.

Ready? Here goes…

DO be ready for a painful experience


DON’T hit snooze

You’ll only feel worse. Or be there until 11am.


DO use whatever motivational tools you need

DON’T turn on the light before you’re totally ready


DO remember to turn off your alarm properly before leaving the bedroom

So it doesn’t wake your flatmate/partner/neighbourhood while you’re in the shower. You don’t want the consequences.


DON’T snuggle with anyone in your bed who doesn’t have to get up yet

It will only fill you with bitterness.


DO make sure you’re prepared before entering the bathroom


DON’T start checking your phone on the toilet

Because you’ll never stop.

DO take a shower

DON’T get dressed in the dark afterwards

DO take care of all your needs before you leave the house


DON’T lie to yourself


And finally, DO remember why you get up in the mornings in the first place.
