Might sound silly, but I’ve been offered a job where I’d have to get up at around 5:30am to start at 7am. I’ve been doing a few practice runs whilst I’m off and my body doesn’t play ball.
Used to be a real early bird and would wake up at the crack of dawn before my alarm went off without fail. After a period of doing that I realised it was anxiety waking me up and that wasn’t healthy (I wasn’t going to bed early). Been about four years since I’ve had to have a get-up time. I naturally wake up at 8-8:30ish.
I’ve got some decaff coffee in, am trying to get in the habit of going to bed at 10pm, might knock the phone on the head from 7ish. Any other tips? Guess I’m particularly looking for help with:
shutting the auld brain down when I go to bed (some nights I lie there for three or four hours before nodding off).
anything which might improve my quality of sleep.
getting out of bed when the alarm goes off (easier said than done).
anything which might freshen me up a bit in the morning so I’m not sloth-like (tried a cold shower yesterday, that did naaaat work)
Thanks in advance.
