You might have often heard that sleeping on time is important, and not just that, but waking up early is also important. But we fail to do so. So, if you find it difficult to practice this here, check out cues on how you can help yourself fix this problem.
1) Adjustment: Instead of trying to make a significant change in your sleep cycle, opt to make little changes and take small steps for it. Sleep a little early on the first day and gradually achieve your goal. Move your bedtime and wake-up time by 10 to 15 minutes.
2) Consistency: Try to maintain consistency. No matter if it is a working day or a non-working day, go to bed on time and wake up early so that it will become a habit and help you sleep better.
3) Bedtime Routine: Plan a bedtime routine that calms you. This will make your body understand that it’s a relaxing time now. You can do reading, breathing or a warm bath will also do.
4) Diet: Avoid large meals, alcohol, and caffeine right before your bedtime. These are drugs that may interfere with your circadian rhythm, which makes it difficult for your body to sleep or stay asleep.
5) Light Exposure: Limit your exposure to light. Avoid artificial lights in the evening, especially from phones, laptops, and other devices, as they create blue light, which can disturb your sleep.
