5 STRATEGIES
FOR WAKING UP
ON TIME
DON'T ABUSE THE SNOOZE BUTTON
If you get enough sleep, you should be “stirring” a
few minutes before the alarm goes off. Avoid
snoozing, which can re-start the sleep cycle and
lead to increased grogginess and sluggishness.
SNOOZE
Hit the snooze button only ONCE
After the alarm has gone off, immediately turn on a bedside lamp
Do some light stretching for the lower back
Get out of bed when the alarm goes off again
LET THE LIGHT IN
Bright light has been
shown to boost
alertness and improve
mood.
After waking up, expose yourself to as much light as possible:
If the sun is up, open the shades
If not, turn on bright lights
IT IS NOW SAFE TO TURN OFF
YOUR COMPUTER
Bright light from electronic
devices reduces the amount of
melatonin the body produces,
which makes it more difficult to
fall and stay asleep
TURN OFF ALL ELECTRONICS
Use the bedroom for sleep and intimacy only
Turn off all televisions, computers, tablets and smartphones 30 to 60 minutes before getting
into bed
Install "F.lux" to your computer to automatically adjust display brightness and color
temperature

TRY WEEKDONE
Go to bed early enough so that you can get 7 to 8 hours of sleep
Try to go to bed and wake up at the same time each day, even on weekends
Develop a regular bedtime routine, such as:
taking a hot bath or shower in a dimly lit room
writing a to-do list for the next day
praying or meditating
Getting enough sleep helps fight weight
gain, improves decision-making and lowers
the risk of heart disease.
Setting uniform sleep and wake up times
help the body's internal clock maintain its
regular rhythm.
DEVELOP A NIGHTTIME
ROUTINE
WAKE UP TO A BETTER TEAM
Set the thermostat so the room’s temperature rises 30 minutes prior to when the alarm is
scheduled to go off.
We typically get sleepy when the
body’s core temperature falls and wake
up when it rises.
The ideal temperature for sleep is 65 to
68 degrees. For waking up is 72
degrees.
