- Get up slowly. Do some more light stretching.
- Drink a glass of clean, pure water.
And that’s about it. It can lead to a much quicker waking up time, and I bet many people wouldn’t be so desperate to get to that caffeine rush. In fact, coffee may be making the problem worse by treating the symptoms rather than the causes of hard mornings. But that’s a topic for another time.

Stretching and drinking water will make you wake up faster because they make said blood flow quicker. Your brain will get more oxygen quickly and your muscles will be nice and ready for the upcoming day.
