    Before sleeping, think about getting up at a particular time in morning. Then do ardaas to Waheguru to help you out. I get amazed at how the human clock is set and wakes me up at exact time, without any need of alarm. And no, I dont get up at each and every hour to see if this is the right time to get up :)

    Loads of water wont help, but eating dinner like a pauper two hours before sleeping will. Write back, if in case you try these tips :)

    Regards.

    Getting up at Amritvela should be as exciting as going on your first date. If it has become a drag then we are looking to perform mechanical rituals rather than immersing in AMRIT from GURU SHABAD. Tejwant

    yep

    I definitly agree, the first time I started getting up at amritvela, I set my alarm clock....then got up 1/2 hour before it was due to go off!

    It's been pretty much the same ever since, can't wait till tomorrow morning!

    there is a study that shows that it takes 21 days to form a habit and then u have to keep reinforcing it..and i feel that waking up at amritvela in itself has so much of incentives..as concentration of mind, so less distractions and so on..that there is no dirth of postive rewards hence positive reinforcement..
    wish u all good luck
    and have a grt amrit vela
