Getting out of my warm blanket is the toughest thing to do in winters for me. It is such a chore just to get up to go to work - i have to literally drag myself to work. Sigh.. any tips on how to make this daily routine less painful ?

Wow girl this is a tough one. I hate it too but I dont have to go to work these days. I do feel for you because you have to go outside and thats the worst. Heres a tip jump out of bed and crab your coffee then run back to bed and drink it in bed. Then you will have a couple more minutes in your warm bed.

You could try borrowing one of my cats - they are wide awake in the mornings crying for food, and getting out of bd is easier than putting up with their racket!Other than that, get a loving man to make you a cup of tea or coffee in bed as soon as the alarm ges off - that will wake you up slowly, and give you some extra time in bed!

I have the same problem. I hit the snooze at least twice every morning, that is why I set my clock 10 minutes fast. LOL. I keep my house very cool at night so it is cold in the morning when it is time for me to get up. After hitting the snooze the second time I start going over in my head what I am going to wear and I slowy wake up. Then I jump up run into the front room turn the heat up and grab my diet coke, I don't do coffee. Then I go back to my bedroom and make my bed immediately! If not I would crawl back in. hahaha. Then I sit on my bed while looking at the news and weather and enjoying that first slug of diet coke. By now it is really time for me to get busy getting dressed for work. Hope this helps.

You need a programmable thermostat so that it is really toasty in the a.m. when you need to rise. Then you should celebrate with a nice breakfast of your choice. Whatever appeals to you. Then wear the clothing you enjoy wearing and drive your car, if you have one, or take the public transportation where you will be surrounded with people each with their own story. Then entering into the job you are provided with the promise of a paycheck. Cool they are paying you to show up! Anyway, it is a mindset and if you can adopt this type of viewing on an otherwise dull routine perhaps you will have bit better time of doing your daily routine! Good luck my friend.

Lol not a lot of People find it easy to get up in the Winter. When I wake I am never able to go back to sleep so I just get up lol and get a Coffee. The best thing is get up as soon as your Alarm goes don't even think about having to get out from under the Warm cover, just do it lol

To get up early in the morning is the hardest thing for me to do. I just hate to get up early, specially in winter it's more painful. Set the hit up for the morning is best thing to do for make yourself little bit comfortable in the morning hours I guess.

Drink a lot of water before you go to bed or as you are going to bed and then you will have to get up.
