Go to bed earlier - at least eight hours before your alarm goes off, and make sure it's super-dark in your room to signal to your brain that it's time to slow down and prepare for sleep. Opt for an eye mask if your room isnít dark enough.
As your alarm goes off in the morning, make sure you turn the lights on straight away and open the blinds. Try to avoid lying down in the dark, as tempting as it might be. Bright lights tell the body it's time to get up.
Wake yourself up with water. Jump in the shower straight away, or if you're not a morning-shower person - just splash your face with cool water and wash your face with a gentle cleanser. This will make you feel fresh and alive.
Starting the day with a healthy and filling meal not only puts you in a good mood, it also kick-starts your metabolism and helps fuel you through the next few hours until lunchtime.
Exercising a minimum of three times a week for 30 minutes at a time can help you sleep better and feel more pumped up during the day. Try not to exercise too late in the evening. Your body might not have enough time to cool before bed.
The most important part of sleeping well is developing a solid routine. Once you start getting up at a set time and going to bed at a certain hour, try to stick to it.
