WAKE UP AT THE SAME TIME
With “social distancing” in full effect many of us find ourselves spending quite a bit more time at home. During this time it is important to reflect on what normally would have gotten you out of bed. A full-time job? Getting the kids up and ready for school? 7 AM class at the local college or university? Whatever it was, one way to maintain routine while at home is waking up at the same time that you would have most days of the week. It can be tempting to push the “snooze” button one, two, or even three times, but getting out of bed at a consistent time each morning will not only help you sleep better at night, but studies also show that it improves our health in several ways, including improved concentration & productivity, digestion, stronger immunity, and emotional stability.
