Dr. Michael Perlis, director of the University of Rochester Medical Center's Sleep Research Lab in Rochester, N.Y., suggests the following tips for a better morning.
1. Always use an alarm, but if you're a deep sleeper, try using more than one or installing a timer on your lights.
2. Maintain a regular sleep schedule - even on days off.
3. Figure out what your sleep need is (i.e., seven and a half or eight hours).
4. Allow yourself enough time in the morning to ease into the day rather than running around frantically.
5. Have a caffeinated beverage in the morning.
6. Take a hot shower when you wake up to increase your core body temperature.
7. Though it's not always possible, having a job that you look forward to is a great motivator in the morning.
