Even if a person naturally has a hard time waking up early in the morning, according to Dr. Catty Sharkey of Brown University, the situation can be corrected. It is enough to follow a few rules.
- Give access to the light… To do this, you can open the curtains. As a result, it will be easier to wake up, since the sleep hormone – melatonin – will not be produced under the influence of light. At the same time, before going to bed, it is better not to sit for a long time in front of the computer and not turn on bright lights, as this will interfere with the preparation of the body for sleep.
Another option to cheer up is to exercise. Or just exercise.
It is also important to go to bed and get up at the same time. This will normalize the rhythms of sleep and wakefulness.
- Don’t sleep long on weekends… That is, do not wake up much later than on weekdays. Otherwise, the body will perceive such days as a 6-hour flight, which will negatively affect the “internal clock”.
