If waking up early in the morning to go to work looks harder than work itself try applying these simple steps and seeing a difference in your sleeping habits (or should I say waking habits).
Make a schedule
The appropriate amount of sleep needed to cope with a demanding day at work is approximately eight hours. Keep this in mind when scheduling your day and organizing your everyday tasks. Take into account the time needed to get to work from the moment you wake up and define a bedtime hour.
Clear your mind
Going to sleep is almost impossible if you have too many things on your mind. Be sure to leave at least one hour before bedtime to clear your mind. Your problems can wait until the next morning. Spend time with your friends or family and choose not to discuss about topics that cause stress and anxiety.
Turn of the TV!
Even though it's hard to admit, watching television is an addiction. Once you turn the TV on it's almost impossible to keep your eyes off it. Time passes by quickly and even though you initially feel a sense of relaxation, at the end of the night you've wasted a couple of hours of your life feeling even more tired than were to begin with. Start to gradually reduce the hours you spend in front of your television every night. Soon you will realize that you have more time on your hands to do things that are more rewarding to your body and mind. Try taking a hot bath or reading a book instead of being glued to your couch.
Change your eating habits
Late night snacks are a delightful habit but they do no good to your health and wont help you go to sleep early. Dinner should be served at least two hours before bedtime and you should never go to bed with a full stomach in order to avoid sleeping disorders. Waking up early in the morning depends on adjusting your lifestyle to a schedule that will change your sleeping habits. Although this may seem difficult at the beginning, it will only take a couple of weeks for your body to accept new sleeping patterns.
