Don’t you wish you were one of those women who get up at the crack of dawn to get in that morning workout. Then you go to work feeling energized and not sluggish all day? It turns out that you can become a morning person! Here’s some tips from fitnessmagazine.com on how to make that happen:
Don’t Sleep In On The Weekends
Even though you look forward to being able to sleep in on Saturdays and Sundays, don’t do it! This throws off your body’s internal clock, making it harder to get up early during the week.
Get The Right Amount Of Zzzzzz’s
If you’re putting your head down at 2 a.m. every night and then wondering why you can’t get up at 7 a.m., chances are that you’re not getting enough sleep. If you need a full eight hours then make sure you get to bed no later than 11 p.m.
Create A Bedtime Ritual
Turn off the TV, take a hot shower and/or meditate about 30 minutes before you plan on going to bed. This will start to calm your mind so you can actually get in those hours that you need.
Those extra 30 minutes you snooze through is not actually allowing you to get more sleep. You body takes a long time to reach a deep sleep so those extra 10 minute intervals are just messing around with your internal clock.
