Make your bedroom a sleep haven

While the act of sleeping isn’t exactly a task, the same can’t be said about going to sleep. Keeping your bedroom dark when you go to sleep will help you fall asleep more easily, helping you feel more refreshed when you wake up at an ungodly hour. Remove all blinky lights from your bedroom, or cover them up — especially blue lights, which disrupt your body's melatonin levels, making you feel alert and awake when you want to feel sleepy.

Wake yourself up fully

When you do wake up, you may stumble around feeling sluggish and unable to focus. There are a number of approaches to help you feel more alert.
