Mornings are (fucking) tough. Getting out of bed should be an Olympic sport. It's that hard.
But you should want to be the Michael Phelps of rolling out of the hay, because if you (fuck up) your sleep, you can (fuck up) your life.
Chronic sleep loss has been linked to heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.
It can also impair the thinking and learning processes,
while contributing to symptoms of depression. Perhaps most frightening is you kill your sex drive and speed up the process of aging.
So if you don't wanna die,
and be hot, listen up!
Waking up on the right side of the bed, of course, means you have to get a good night's sleep the night before. That means get enough sleep--
six to eight hours ideally-- sticking to a sleep schedule,
and maintaining a comfortable sleep environment.
If you're feeling really ballsy about getting some quality shut-eye -- and you should be -- then cut the caffeine, booze, and screens, like TV and your laptop, well before you go to bed.
Don't go to bed hungry, don't go to bed full,
and don't go to bed thirsty.
While you're sleeping, you can't really do much aside from, well, sleep.
So let's skip that part and get right to the good stuff -- waking up.
First and foremost, set yourself up for success.
Have your alarm clock across the room, so you have to get up to turn it off.
If you drink coffee, preset it to brew before you wake up.
And for the love of everything that is holy, don't hit snooze.
Once you're out of bed, have a big ass glass of water. It would get your metabolism revving and flush out toxins,
plus, rehydrate your body. And it's good for your brain.
But most important of all, have goals and a plan when you wake up in the morning.
Why are you waking up early? To work out or maybe grab a coffee?
Wake up with the mentality of a champ, not a scrub.
Now get cracking. Because next time you shut eye, you'd better shut it down.

有沒有人跟小 V 一樣,不論春夏秋冬、晴天雨天,總是都有種睡不好、睡不飽的感覺,甚至光是起床就要花上很多時間呢?就讓這支影片來跟大家分享一些讓你一夜好眠的方法,好好筆記一下並確實實行,就不用再怕上班、上課或考試遲到了!

1to wake up on the right / wrong side of the bed0:36
影片裡出現的句子是 "Waking up on the right side of the bed means that…",意思是「睡得好、前一晚有睡飽,起來後精神飽滿」的意思喔!那大家猜猜 "to wake up on the wrong side of the bed" 會是什麼意思呢?那當然就是「起床後精神很差」、「起床氣」的意思啦!
Did you wake up on the wrong side of the bed? You're a real grouch.

2shut-eye 0:51
相信大家從這個字的構成就可以猜出它的意思, shut 這個動詞指的是「閉上」,再加上後面的 eyes ,直譯為「閉上眼睛」。而事實上 shut-eye (或是 shuteye) 與 sleep (名詞) 的意思就是一模一樣的,只是 shut-eye 是口語的說法。在這邊也多補充幾個跟 shut 有關的片語,首先是 shut up ,就是我們常常在美劇裡聽到的「閉嘴」;而另一個片語 shut down ,指的則是「關閉」或「關機」喔!
Now let's get some shut-eye. We have a big day ahead of us.

That store around the corner shut down a few days ago.

3for the love of everything that is holy 1:28
for the love of everything / all that is holy 其實就是 for God's sake 的意思,中文可以翻成「看在老天爺的份上」。
For the love of all that is holy, would you just stop nagging?

4get cracking 1:57
get cracking 的意思是「趕快開始做某事吧」,用在告訴別人要做什麼事情或是拿到什麼東西的話動作要快。此外,也有另外幾個包含 get 的片語是有關「開始」或「結束」的,像是 get down to 指的是「開始認真做某件事」, get overget through 則都有「度過」、「克服」、以及「完成」的意思在喔。
Most tickets for the concerts have been snapped up, so get cracking if you're still going.
