6) Move your alarm clock.

Often, the hardest part of getting up early is actually getting out of your warm, comfortable bed. So if you have to get up to shut off your alarm clock, you’re already halfway there! Move it to the other side of the room, and set it to a truly intolerable sound at a high volume. For you, that might be the sound of a buzzer. For me, it’s the sound of deep house music.

Whatever it is, it needs to drive you crazy enough to make you need to get up and shut it off. And once you’re up, you’ll likely stay up (thanks to all those great things you need to get up for – see #4).
