Tips to Help You Wake up Early
Do you dream of being a morning person—literally?
The dawn of being a morning person starts here. Check out these helpful tips.
Sie’Zzz’ the Day With Better Sleep
Failing to get the amount or quality of sleep that your body needs makes waking up nearly impossible—and it’s important to get the restful night’s sleep your body needs. Timo’s can help you sleep well every night!
Wondering what a team that specializes in air conditioning service in Palm Desert, CA, could possibly know about sleep? Believe it or not, a lot! Temperature plays a major role in helping you get proper sleep. According to the National Sleep Foundation, setting your home’s nighttime temperature between 60 and 68 degrees leads to better quality sleep. Cooler air helps regulate your body temperature, enabling you to fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.
Not running the AC in your home sabotages quality sleep. Warm air causes you to wake up frequently throughout the night and makes your heart rate and your blood pressure rise.
Stop Snoozing the A.M. Away
Is the snooze button your best friend? Not anymore!
The extra couple minutes of sleep you get from hitting the snooze button does more harm than help. While your mind is aware you’re only falling back to sleep for a short period of time, your body doesn’t understand. It begins to prepare for a new sleep cycle that you won’t have time to finish. Those fragmented spurts of low-quality sleep result in fatigue throughout the day.
Rather than snoozing, set your alarm for when you actually need to get up. Try setting your alarm for the same time every day. This regularity puts your body on a schedule. Over time, this regularity trains your body to adapt to a schedule, making it easier for you to wake up.
Get up & Get Out of There!
Did you ever notice that your bed looks most inviting immediately after you leave it in the morning? When your bed’s calling your name, it’s hard not to answer. To avoid crawling right back in, make it a habit to leave your room right after you shut off your alarm or pull down the covers. Whether you head straight to the bathroom to brush your teeth or to the kitchen to start the coffee pot, make sure your post-bed activity is the same every day. This helps you develop the muscle memory you need to stay away from your bed.
Let the Sun ‘Ray’diate Into Your Room
A dark room is sleep’s friend. That’s why, in the morning, you need to get sun ASAP! Not only does a bright room make it harder to keep sleeping, but sunlight also shuts off melatonin production in your body. This tells your body it’s time to wake up! So, get your dose of sun right away and you’ll notice yourself becoming alert before you finish your morning cup of coffee.
Break the Fast
What they say is true: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Food is fuel for your brain and body. So, eating breakfast will get your brain motivated, awake and thinking quicker and give you the energy you need to start your day. Try incorporating healthy fats, such as avocados or almonds, into your meal as they help boost your brain function and support your nervous system.
