There are plenty of morning people out there. They enjoy waking up early, they love to get a head-start on their day while everyone else is sleeping in as much as possible, and they're always ready to greet you with a cheerful "good morning!" while you're still trying to muster up the energy to sip your coffee. But there are a lot of people who are the opposite, and find waking up at the crack of dawn to be miserable, no matter how many often they have to do it. If you're one of these people, and you have to be at work by 7 a.m. each day, then you are probably desperately looking for some hacks to make waking up a little easier.

After all, if you have to be at work by 7 a.m., that means you have to be out of bed by at least 6 a.m. (unless you live down the block from your job and can get ready super fast). If you have a long commute, you have to be up even earlier than that! You've probably found that hitting the snooze button multiple times before springing into action at the very last minute isn't working for you, and you're right. Waking up earlier and having a less rushed morning can make your whole day more enjoyable and productive.

Instead of starting your day off feeling stressed out and anxious about being late, use the below hacks to start on a more peaceful and positive note... and actually get out of bed when you're supposed to.
