Morning Routines

1. Pick a wake-up time and stick to it.

Setting the same wake-up time every morning is essential and it’s best to maintain that every day, even on the weekends. According to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, the minimum recommended sleep for healthy adults is seven hours a night, but you may need more than the recommended hours of sleep to feel fully rested.

2. Tidy your bedroom in the morning.

Need a great place to start? Make your bed every morning, keep your room neat, keep laundry and any unsorted mail or paperwork out of sight. It’s calming to tidy up at the start of the day, so you enter a fresh, neat bedroom at night. There is research suggesting that a neat environment helps facilitate the onset of sleep and better sleep quality.
