Wake up songs can work wonders in the morning to get you up if you need that extra energy-kick.
An instant boost of energy would be great, right? And it's so simple this one. What happens when we use some of our favorite music to get out of bed is that we replace that strong feeling of morning misery with a positive feeling connected to the music.
Perhaps you might not jump up and start dancing, but as long as your mind wakes up enough to realize it's morning - then it works!
Let's discuss some wake up songs and how to use the power of music!
Nowadays it's really simple to put this into practice. A few alternatives for you:
That's three very easy ways so don't let technology stop you before you've even tried it.
So which are the absolute best wake up songs? What kind of music really works?
That's a tough question actually, but before I go into that, I'll just list a few of my own good old favorites to use in the morning. Just don't judge me too much =)
These are just a few good old songs which does the trick for me. But this is very personal. You need the songs you associate with energy and that pumps you up to be ready for a new day.
According to me, there's no need to have the words "morning", "wake up" or something similar in the song. Most likely you won't be hung up with the words anyway so just go for a song you think will do the trick. Try it your way.
I feel I have to raise a slight hand of warning here. Although using a wake up song might be great, there is an inherited danger.
You might end up hating the song you choose!
Yeah, it's true. Unless you have a good wake up routine your feelings about the songs might change. Here's why.
After a while, you might:
And not only tired, angry as well, because this is the song that keeps interrupting your precious sleep. So as my friend said:
"The best way to ruin a good song is to use it as your morning alarm"
I'm not saying it's gonna happen, just that this is not a fix-all solution.
Another, a bit crazy, suggestion I've heard is to set your alarm to some awful song you hate. That combined with placing your alarm far away will for sure get you running up. Might not give you the best start of a new day though...
Still, I believe having a great morning song can be awesome. So I would love to hear what works for you! Post below and let everyone know.
