Not Everyone is Born a Morning Person
If you wake up each morning in a groggy haze, you can blame your body clock: “Circadian rhythms are longer than a 24-hour day, so our sleep clock pushes us later,” says Rebecca Scott of NYU Langone’s Comprehensive Epilepsy Center—Sleep Center.
This means shut-eye acts like a dimmer switch rather than an on/off switch. It takes time to ease into sleep at night and time to feel fully alert in the morning, which is why, says Scott, you feel like you need 10 to 20 minutes to fully wake up.
These simple tweaks to your routine can get your body back on track faster, so you face the day mindful and energized.
