Like many of you, I was just forced back into my regular work week routine after a vacation where I woke up no earlier than 9am. To make matters worse, the days have also gotten much colder. Getting out of bed at 6am is never fun, but winter makes it so much worse. With these inexpensive solutions, though, you can make pulling back the covers much more bearable. Keep warm, soft things in arm's reach. I keep a small lambskin rug and my shearling slippers next to my bed. (It's the only time from December to February those nerdy-looking and amazingly warm things leave my feet.) Similarly, my robe lives less than two paces from my bedside. Next, in the words of one Tom Haverford, treat yo self. You've gotten up when it's barely light out, and you deserve something like a special soap, coffee, or breakfast to look forward to. It won't cost much, but it's incentive enough for me.
