Rise Up Early

Wouldn't it be nice if you could just hop out of bed every morning full of energy? I am so tired by mid-morning from lack of sleep that sometimes I just have to take a nap. This really ruins my day. Ruins my schedule and I don't get much done. If I could just get on a regular bedtime schedule I think I'd feel so much better and be able to accomplish much more.

I love staying up late at night when everyone is asleep and it's quiet. However, I am planning on starting a new bedtime routine. I will aim for 7 hours of sleep each night. Although I think six would be great too. Since I have to get up at 5:30 am every morning that means getting to bed no later than 10:30. That's a lot earlier than I go to bed now.

Getting enough sleep is essential to your well-being. A healthy night’s sleep supports a healthy mind and body.  Proper sleep also sets us up to do well with our
time management. You just can't manage your time well and accomplish much when you have zero energy and are completely exhausted.

If you are a night owl like me and aren't getting the proper sleep maybe it's time you make a change too. What better time than now. Find what works best for you. While everyone’s body is different and some need more sleep than others most adults need between seven and nine hours of sleep each night. How many hours do you need for your ideal well-being?

To help you fall asleep you should limit your caffeine intake especially later on in the day. and be sure to turn off your screens at least 30 minutes before bed. Unwind with a good book or Bible reading. A soothing bath, a hot cup of tea, or golden milk may also help you relax. Also for some, a daily exercise routine really helps you fall asleep faster. Let's make some changes and get the proper rest. How wonderful it will be to rise up early and feel good.

Peaceful dreams.

She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens. Proverbs 31:15
