Wake up without an alarm

Become one with your internal clock. Your “circadian rhythm” regulates the release of hormones that tell you “when to sleep and when to wake up.” The simple way to reset: Get more sleep. People who get seven to nine hours a night “consistently wake up before their alarms.”

Visualize. When drifting off, think of the “exact time you’d like to wake up” and associate it with an important event, such as a job interview or medical appointment. If you add specificity to your wake-up time, you can “subconsciously trigger a surge of hormones.”

See the light of day. The “process of waking up is linked closely to light.” Leave your blinds open or use a wakeup light and arise to the glow. Source: Best Life
