Everyone knows those days where all I want to do is stay in bed with my dog and watch Netflix. However, life means responsibility, and I can't just stay in bed all day when I have a job. Here are a few things that help me get out of bed when everything is telling me no

Keeping a Bedtime Routine

Giphy

I've noticed that as soon as I developed a bedtime routine, it was easier to get up in the morning. My routine starts with a shower, then a face mask and some reading. Before you know it, I'm fast asleep. I made sure my routine includes things that make me relax, rather than an imitation of someone else's routine. That way, it feels less like a chore, and more like pampering.

Getting my full 8hrs

Sometimes falling asleep isn't the hard part, staying asleep is. I've always struggled with restless sleep that makes it all the more difficult to get up in the morning. Along with my bedtime routine, I've started drinking sleepy-time tea, which not only helps with relaxation, but also helps me stay asleep. Once I get my full 8 hours, it's not that hard to wake up in the morning.

Music

Even after following your bedtime routine, and getting a full 8 hours of sleep, you can still feel like you have to drag yourself out of bed in the morning. On days like this, I play my "Wake up" playlist, which is full of fun, loud, fast paced music that forces me out of bed.

Delicious Breakfast

Nothing can get me out of bed quicker than anticipation of a delicious breakfast. The smell of eggs cooking, veggie bacon on the stove. The only thing that could stop me from getting out of bed for that is if Jason Mamoa himself brought me breakfast in bed!

If he's awake, everyone's awake! And that means it's time for a walk.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"

I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
