Trouble Waking Up in the Morning? Useful Tips, Health Benefits of Early Rising

Whether you’re a natural-born early-riser or a sleep-in night owl, research shows that getting up early does have certain health benefits — if for no other reason than it helps you get to work on time. To help adjust to an early-rising schedule, Z News offers some hints, such as gradually waking a few minutes earlier day-by-day. Maintaining a regular sleep schedule is also important, the news agency said.

While a few people have a gene that allows them to thrive on little sleep, the truth is 40 percent of Americans are sleep-deprived. Many get less than five hours sleep a night, nearly two hours too few for a good night’s rest.

Unfortunately, the cost of sleep deprivation goes beyond droopy eyelids and yawns. Tired drivers are as dangerous as drunk or drugged ones, and even if you don’t get in an accident, sleepiness causes reductions in productivity and clear-thinking. What’s more, you may be much more tired than you think you are. With the challenge of getting quality sleep increasing, you may want to try some of the following sleep help ideas.

Begin the morning by opening your shades and getting bright natural sunlight. Incorporate exercise into your daily activities, possibly at night in the early evening. Take a walk for lunch — preferably outdoors if at all possible. Consider taking a short “cat” nap on a break or during lunch. Eat a light dinner and stop eating three hours before bedtime. And, dim your lights or use blue-blocking amber-colored glasses to prepare your body’s melatonin for a good night’s rest.
