Prompt 52

“A beginner’s guide to waking up in the morning”

Step 1: Open eyes. This might take some time as your eyelids might feel as if they are glued shut.

Step 2: Look around and find a time device to assess what time of the day it is. This can also be done by looking at the sun’s position in the sky. Time of the year must be taken into account for that to be remotely accurate.

Step 3: Stretch. By this I mean extend your limbs away from your body. This will help you move out of the comfortable shape your body adopted during sleep. 

Step 4: Evaluate if there is any more time you can spend in bed.

Step 4.1: If no more time available, it is time to get up.

Step 5: Pull off covers. Depending on the type of person you are, there are two ways of doing this. You can either pull them off slowly, exposing your skin to the elements bit by bit. The other option is to rip the covers off in one fell swoop; like ripping off a bandaid. If you go for the second option, try not to yelp too loudly.

Step 6: Once the covers are off, you need to raise your torso up and put yourself into a sitting position. Then, swivel your body so that your feet dangle off the side of the bed and your toes touch the floor.

Step 7: Give your eyes a good rub so as to avoid any toe stubbing once you’re up.

Step 8: Count to three. One…Two…Three…and up!
