If you're not used to it (or, you know, you're a night owl by nature), waking up early can be the actual worst. There's something so haunting about early mornings — it's dark, it's cold, it's way too quiet, and everything in you is just screaming, "Go back to bed!" If that's you, you're certainly not alone. Almost everyone struggles with waking up early, and almost all of us wish it wasn't such a difficult task. So, if you're looking for hacks for waking up early, lazy girl, join the club.
