Having trouble getting up and going in the morning? This homemade wake up roller can help you spring–rather than slump–out of bed.
Homemade Wake Up Roller
Are you a morning person? Do you naturally wake up five minutes before your alarm goes off, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, more than ready to start the day? Do you spring from bed with the energy of an Olympic gymnast?
If that’s you, then this post is not for you. (Instead, if you need a little help relaxing, I recommend my bedtime roller!)
However, for the rest of us mere mortals, we need a little help in the morning to get going. Maybe you’ve been setting a back-up alarm for your real alarm (just in case you oversleep) or hitting the snooze button as many times as possible. Maybe you do that trick where you set your alarm clock or phone across the bedroom so you have to get out of bed to turn it off.
These fixes might work (to some degree), but they don’t really solve the real problem, do they? Setting multiple alarms, hitting the snooze button, and forcing yourself to get out of bed to turn off your shrieking alarm clock will make you get up–but you’re still miserable.
Too bad you can’t make yourself happy about getting up in the morning!
Or can you?
In fact, you can–by using essential oils for motivation and energy in the morning! Many essential oils have been shown in scientific studies to impact mood and energy levels. For example, citrus essential oils can lift your mood, and bergamot essential oil can increase your energy levels. (That’s because aromatherapy works on your brain and automatic nervous system.)
I don’t always love getting up in the morning. When that happens, I love to use my favorite homemade wake up roller. This recipe contains essential oils for energy and motivation, so it helps me get up and go! I keep it on my nightstand right next to my bed and pop it on in the morning whenever I need a boost.
If you’re like me, and not a morning person, you will love this homemade wake up roller. Try it out, and see what a different it makes in your mornings!
