how to wake up well
1. get a good night's sleep
This Work' sleep solutions are clinically proven to enhance sleep quality - no matter what your sleep concern.
2. avoid waking up suddenly
Avoid using a loud alarm which jolts you out of sleep - increasing heart rate, blood pressure and stress levels. Instead, wake up well with an alarm sound which gradually takes you from deep sleep to wakefulness.
3. dreamy wake up
Start your day more relaxed by waking up during a dream. Train yourself to do this by adjusting your bedtime and wake-up time to REM cycles, which happen about every 90 minutes.
Drink a tall glass of water upon waking to combat overnight water loss (due to sweating, snoring, mouth breathing, and pre-sleep alcohol or dessert consumption). You are particularly prone to dehydration if you sleep less than six hours.
5. burn off cortisol
It's good to burn off cortisol, which rises in the morning, to prevent being in 'stress reponse' mode going into your day. However, avoid losing sleep in order to exercise.
6. be kind to your bowel
Emptying your bowel in the morning rids the body of waste, reduces bloating and helps improve mood (because water in the gut can trigger anxiety and negativity, due to nerve connections between the gut and the brain).
