WEBE Wellness: How To Become An Early Riser

If you’re a night owl, you probably think you could never be an early bird. Well, there are a few tricks that can turn you into a morning person:

First – do it in stages, not at once. Go to bed a 15 minutes earlier each night to reset your internal clock little by little.

When you do wake up, open the curtains – the light tells your body to be alert and active.

Keep a consistent schedule – don’t sleep in or deviate too much on the weekends.

Don’t hit snooze – make it a rule, as soon as the alarm goes off, you get up.

Finally, there’s the RISE method, where each letter stands for something different – R is for refrain from hitting snooze; I is increase physical activity in general, so you go to sleep earlier; S is shower; and E is expose yourself to light as soon as possible.
