    Drink Water

    Yes, that may seem like a silly piece of advice for getting out of bed. But if you drink a full glass of water each morning when you wake up, it will not only rehydrate your body after sleeping all night but it will also force you to sit up out of bed to drink it. Plus, chances are you'll feel more awake once you drink it!

    Buy a Cool Alarm Clock

    I do realize that most people do not find alarm clocks to be cool. However, that does not mean that they do not exist. There are alarm clocks in the world that require you to walk around with them or chase them around the room. Alarm clocks that are placed across the room from the bed will also help you wake up because you will be forced to get up to turn them off. So see what kind of fun alarm clocks you can find, you might be surprised what you find!

    Start Your Coffee Early

    Coffee drinkers, try setting your coffee maker to start brewing a few minutes before your alarm goes off. The smell of the coffee as you wake up can be motivating to get out of bed a little bit quicker than usual. Plus, you're going to need the coffee anyway, you might as well have it done early.
