How to become a morning person

by | Jun 14, 2019 | Lifestyle & Leisure | 0 comments

Regular sleep (8-9 hours a night, maybe 7 in a pinch) is an important cornerstone of good health.

Yet there are those unfortunates who seem to be genetically hard-wired to stay up late and function poorly in the early hours of the morning.

Fortunately, all is not lost for those night owls who want to make a concerted effort to conform their sleeping patterns to those that are more societally convenient.

You can train yourself to get to sleep 2-3 hours earlier each night. Recent scientific research confirms the effectiveness of this simple protocol:

  • Wake up 2-3 hours before regular wake up time
  • Maximize outdoor light during the mornings
  • Limit light exposure in the evening
  • Go to bed 2-3 hours before habitual bedtime
  • Keep sleep/wake times fixed on both work days and free days
  • Have breakfast as soon as possible after waking up
  • Eat lunch at the same time each day
  • Eat dinner before 7 pm

Stick with the plan. Then notice the benefits to your alertness, mood, and health!
