We’ve written before about things you can do in the evening to take some of the load off the next day, as well as the benefits of good sleep hygiene. Hopefully, if you’re putting these tips into practice, you’re waking up rested and refreshed (possibly on your perfectly fitted Regal mattress). Now, what can you do first thing the morning to get your day off to the best possible start?
Don’t use your phone as an alarm
If you’re like the majority of Australians, you’re somewhat hooked into your digital devices most of the time. The average person checks their devices a staggering 85 times per day! Given this, why not give your mind a few minutes of peace before you connect? In all likelihood, waking up to an alarm on your phone means you’re also checking email and social media before you’ve even brushed your teeth, which can leave you feeling rushed and stressed out. Instead, invest in a traditional alarm clock and only check your phone when you feel more awake, focused, and centered.
