Improve Sleeping Habits Often a small adjustment of your sleeping habits can already do wonders for your energy levels.
- Lying in bed is not sleeping: Don go to bed if your not sleepy and end up lying in bed pondering and stressing. If you are drifting off at the computer, while reading, or watching TV, itâ€™s time to get to bed. Your bedtime should and will vary from night to night. Let your body tell you when to sleep as opposed to the following the 8-hour rule.
- Rise and Shine: Put an alarm and get up at the same time everyday.
- Sleepy at Noon?: Try a powernap of 20 minutes in a quiet place.
Experiment and find out what your optimal sleep levels are.
