How To Wake Up If It Is Always Dark

Kseniia Gavrilova and her tips on how to easily wake up during the dark season.

How To Wake Up If It Is Always Dark

Now we go to work in the morning in the dark and return from it in the evening in the dark. Dark days not only depress and make us sad, but many people notice that they also find it harder to get themselves out of bed when the alarm clock rings. How do you overcome this condition? Almost everything we do during the day affects the purity and quality of our sleep. According to experts, after 7-10 days of such sleep you will feel more awake in the morning. How can you help the body to enter a new rhythm and easily get up in the morning, when it is still dark outside the window?

Don't forget about breakfast

Breakfast does not only recharge you, but also affects your whole day. Researchers note that people who take breakfast fall asleep and wake up easier. Breakfast within 30-45 minutes after waking up stabilizes blood sugar levels and accelerates metabolism. Try to include protein in your breakfast to maintain your motivation.

Find your own time in the morning

This may seem unproductive, but try to get up a little earlier than you are used to. Instead of waking up and going to work in a hurry, give yourself time to adjust to the new day.

Use this time to think about what is waiting for you today. Think of the good, smile. Soon you will realize how valuable these moments of your personal time can be, and you will be looking forward to it.

Try not to enter the social network immediately after waking up

Many people know that it is undesirable to look at the screens of electronic devices before going to bed. However, even in the morning, it is of little use! People who start their day by checking for new messages disrupt the process of gradual awakening and put themselves under stress. Falling asleep with the thought that immediately after waking you will have to assimilate the information and immerse yourself in working questions, you are unlikely to relax and rest.

Do not rely on caffeine

"Don't talk to me until I've had my coffee," do you recognize yourself in that phrase?

No matter how much you love coffee in the morning. Caffeine blocks the action of melatonin and contributes to a more disturbing sleep. Try to avoid caffeine after 3 pm and do not drink coffee before breakfast. In addition, if you are serious about becoming a lark with glowing eyes, give up caffeine completely.

Relax in the evenings

A good night's sleep does not necessarily mean you have to go to bed early. Try to allow time for relaxation before bedtime.

The ideal way to relax is to take a hot bath with soda bicarbonate 60-90 minutes before bedtime. Do not use soap or shampoo when taking such a bath, as chemicals will reduce the effect. After such a bath, you will feel very tired, sleep tighter and get up in the morning much easier.

Be physically active

Although you want to curl up under a blanket rather than go to the gym in cold and wet weather, research shows that exercise is exactly what you need to sleep longer and better. Try to do at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise a day, and soon you will feel the result!
