Once upon a time, I was an early riser. Now, it is tremendously hard for me to drag myself out of bed. I give myself an extra long time to get up, alert and ready in the morning before work. But on weekends, it is hard to feel motivated to get up and out. Except that I have no coffee at home now, so the incentive to go outside is there if I want that cup of joe. GEtting to bed early enough and staying on a routine does help. My problem right now is that the serzone helps me fall asleep, but the effexor is still activating and I tend to wake up agitated in the middle of the night and need some tv/computer time to relax enough to go back to sleep. Then, in the morning I am zonked. At one point in my life, I dealt with the wake up thing by establishing a nice morning ritual. I set my alarm clock near my whistling tea kettle (I lived in a studio apartment at that time, so the proximity between bed and kitchen facilitated this), making me get out of bed to turn the alarm off. When I turned off the alarm, I would put the whistling kettle on, and get back in bed for a few minutes, but had to get up when the water boiled. I would then make myself some tea and sit on the couch to enjoy it, sometimes just vegging, sometimes reading. Then I would feel more awake, but in a non-rushed, soothing kind of way.
