Monday Morning Motivation

I would wake up for this :)

I have none.  Actually, I have no morning motivation.  Ideally I would sleep all day! (Possibly with a little eating in between.)  Reasons to be motivated to wake up in the morning: 1. To make money.  Notice, I do not say to go to work, because I also lack motivation on that front, though I do in reality, really like my job and my students. So reason 2? There isn’t one.  My six foot four inch, 220 pound boyfriend has it easy.  He wakes up to eat breakfast.  This is apparently necessary because according to both him and my mother, he will “wither away” if he does not eat on schedule.  I have my doubts.  And then there is my mother, who frequently wakes up at 4 or 5 am. Against her will. I wish I woke up in the morning against my will. So how to wake up in the morning and be all chipper and happy. ..and awake enough to not walk into walls, or fall back asleep with my head against the shower wall? Apparently, it’s pretty simple.  At least that is what I have been reading. 

So I will try these suggestions out.  I meant to try it out this morning…but that didn’t go over too well.  At least I wasn’t late to work though! Always a plus.  In the meantime…I am going to take a nap in my nice warm bed and continue to avoid both my graduate school project and the many, many papers that I have to grade.
Anyone else have trouble getting up in the morning? What do you do to get a jump start on the day?
