I find getting to bed early and getting enough sleep is hugely helpful in waking up early and then I do some of my most productive coding in the early morning. If it works for you too, you are on the right track!
Be careful focusing too much on tools like Pomodoro. The timer alone is not the answer. You will find you get a lot done, but it might not be very meaningful work. Before you time yourself, make sure you have prioritized your to do list well. A helpful practice I have been doing is writing down everything on my mind, then crossing out everything that isn't essential. Then figure out the things you need to get done to have peace of mind when you go to sleep that night and tackle those items head-on from most important (typically hardest) to least important. This is where you can start using the Pomodoro technique.
Sometimes I don't feel like touching the computer at all for similar reasons. Then I find myself thinking about the code when I am trying to sleep!
I like using the Pomodoro technique. I ended up getting a 30 minute sand hourglass timer because I want to give myself the opportunity to keep coding after time has ran out, in case I have gotten in the zone or flow. I didnt want to get distracted by the ding of an app or timer.
Wow, this is just the thing i do. I haven't touched my laptop for whole day. And i know that, i'll think of coding just before i go to sleep. Then i have no time and have to go to sleep, so i aspire to do it tomorrow and then... it all starts again.
