    Relax. Don't think about stresses and jobs you have to do during the day. Instead, try to let all that sink away from your mind. If you practice yoga or meditation, this is a good time to do a little of that.

    Watch as the sun slowly peeks out over the horizon. Find the edge and see the sky change from blood-red to orange to pink and purple and blue as the sun goes up. Pay attention to the rays breaking through the clouds.

    Listen to the sounds around you. If you are near water, you can hear the fish beginning to wake up and the splashes of the water. Crickets and birds make nice sounds too.

  • Do this with your significant other; it is very romantic.
  • Close your eyes and let the wind blow on your face if you are outside, or just open a window.
  • Springtime is wonderful--if you don't have allergies. If you do, make sure you take an allergy medicine before going outside.
  • Practice waking up early if it is difficult for you.


  • Do not drink caffeine; it will make you impatient and you won't enjoy the sunrise as much.
  • Do not stare or squint at the Sun! It is still the Sun and is very bright!
