6 Extremely Effective ways of becoming an Amritvela Riser
So often, we think to wake up early in the morning and set the alarm accordingly, and when alarm rang we have so many excuses to get to the bed again. Have you ever imagine who is the culprit in stopping you to get off from bed? It’s your ‘mind‘.
Always remember “When you start fighting yourself you shall win the God. Mind is given you as a servant not a master.”
If you’d like to become an Amritvela Riser, here are the 8 ways to transform yourself from erratic sleeper to early morning wizard.
1. Sleep Early
The easy formula, to wake up early in the morning, is to go to bed early in the night. Try to sleep early around 9 pm, since 7 to 8 hours of sleep is necessary to keep us healthy. Also, rising at the ambrosial hour is also a western thought:
Early to Bed, Early to Rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.
So, if you want to become healthy, wealthy and wise, you must get up early in the morning. It’s true, look at the biorhythm of those of who get up in the morning and who don’t.
2. Eat a Light Dinner
Always try to take a light dinner so that it digests easily. If you have taken a heavy dinner, take a walk for 30 min and sleep as early as possible.
3. Put the alarm clock at the distance
Keeping the alarm clock at the distance and set a weird alarm sound. This makes you leave the bed in order to stop it and then try to leave the room as soon as possible – even if you go to the kitchen for a glass of water.
4. Before going to sleep, recite Kirtan Sohila and Ardaas
Every night before going to sleep, read Kirtan Sohila and then do Ardaas to Gurusahib asking to wake you up himself. This is Guru Ji’s Hukam, “That person, who reads Kirtan Sohila before going to sleep will be close to me.”
5. Find a reason for Amritvela Rising
Identify the reason for waking up in the morning and try to motivate yourself daily in achieving it. One of the reasons to wake up at Amritvela is to Jap Naam and read Bani. Always remind yourself throughout the day that this is our main purpose of life.

6. Make rising early a daily habit
Be consistent while trying to become an Amritvela riser. Make a habit of waking up early and you will adapt it in no time and once you are adapted than it feels unnatural to wake up late.
