1. Get a good night’s sleep
Proper sleep makes waking up easier. This Works sleep solutions are clinically proven to enhance sleep quality, no matter what your sleep concern.
2. Avoid waking up suddenly
Avoid using a loud alarm which jolts you out of sleep, increasing heart rate, blood pressure and stress levels. Instead, wake-up well with an alarm sound which gradually takes you from a deep sleep to wakefulness.
3. Dreamy wake up
start your day more relaxed by waking-up during a dream Train yourself to do this by adjusting your bedtime and wake-up time to REM cycles, which happen about every 60 minutes.
Drink a tall glass of water upon waking to combat overnight water loss (due to sweating, mouth breathing, snoring, and pre-sleep alcohol or dessert consumption). If you sleep less than 6 hours, you are prone to hydrate.
5. Burn off cortisol
It’s good to burn of cortisol, which rises in the morning, to prevent being in ‘stress response’ mode going into your day. However, avoid losing sleep in order to exercise.
6. Be kind to your bowel
Emptying your bowel in the morning rids the body of waste reduces bloating and helps to improve mood (because water in the gut can trigger anxiety and negativity due to nerve connections between the gut and the brain).
7. Delay breakfast
Wait an hour or later after waking to have breakfast so your body is awake and ready to process food energy and nutrients.
