Maybe it's because you wake up knowing you'll face a bad day ahead of you. You're so used to having a bad day that you expect it first thing in the morning when you wake up.

Depression commonly makes it difficult for people to wake up and start their day. Most days people wake up angry, exhausted, or sad. Either that or you could just not be a morning person.

There are a lot of factors that play in why people feel upset when waking up. It could be that you aren't prepared for the day. Making plans and goals to do for the day sets you up for motivation and makes you feel good.

sometimes this happens to me. A lot of times I had a dream that made me angry or I know there's something that's going to happen that day that I don't want to deal with. When I wake up like this, I try to get myself a good breakfast and a nice size cup of coffee. Then I just try to focus on the positive aspects of that day.

This is probably because you are worried about something that might happen, feeling nervous, anxiety, or stressing over something that might occur that you cannot predict.

Only you can figure out what it is that is making you hate the day from the moment you wake up. However, there are some things to help change your outlook on the day. Often, a bad/restless sleep or not enough sleep will have us waking up cranky. For myself, if I wake up in a bad mood, the first thing I do is take time just for myself to do something I love. So, a long hot shower, reading a book for a bit, going for a walk. Just something that will help me to shake off the bad mood I woke up in.

You lack motivation. You should have a motivation, an inspiration to start the day. When you do, it will be better. :'> Just like me, my girlfriend is my inspiration. When I think of her, I immediately become happy. :)

This might be because of the last thought on your mind when y ou sleep.Try to tell your brain when you are about to sleep-"Tomorrow will be a good day.I will try my best no matter what.I will try to be happy.No person has the power to stop my happiness.I will wake up and fight the day." I hope this helps.Take care.There might be some good things which you will be able to see with a little more effort. :)

You might be feeling depressed or angry at someone or something. Try to make a list of things that make you happy, little or big. When you wake up, go through that list and try to do/find at least one thing from that list.

because we don't wanna feel guilty or don't wanna accept things are wrong which we were going to do, so we convince ourselves by doing that

Not sure, but one way to look at things is that every day is a good day. Seeing every day as a good day will help you conquer that day, no matter what comes your way.

Perhaps you are going through a stressfull time in your life. Perhaps you are unhappy with something. If you identify the problem it will help you to wake up happy.

You might be filled with a lot of negative energy which taunts you all the day. Get rid of that by thinking about good things happened, and which are going to happen in your life.

If you find your self waking up already angry then try and find something to do in the morning that will give you joy, whether it be your favourite breakfast or to show. Give your self some time to do things that make you happy.

Events from the past that have not been worked through and talked about can sometimes lead to feeling like today is just going to be another one of those terrible days.

I always wake up already hating the day because my room , my bed and the covers are my escape zone,the moment i open my eyes the realisation hits me that this is the world where i failed , this is the world where i m not good enough.This overwhelming feeling takes away all the courage to face the day.Also I tend to believe all the uncertainties will end up as the negative outcome.The fear to face people and the fear of being judged is also overwhelming.Mostly its that i don't want to be seen or be seen in a bad way to be precise,with all these in mind waking up is a huge challenge.
