Waking up to get school started on those dark, cold mornings…
It can be rough. But getting better sleep will smooth out your day. How do you do it?
Make sure your room is as dark as possible, or wear a sleep mask. Try to stay
away from bright light and electronics for about an hour and a half before bed, too.
Help get rid of that groggy feeling by waking up during a light sleep cycle. Use an
app or free website like sleep-calculator.com
to help you figure out what time to go to bed.
Keep your room at a comfortable temperature, normally around 65 degrees. If the room is
too hot or too cold (even if you’re bundled up in blankets), you won’t sleep as well.
Try a light-therapy lamp/alarm to brighten your morning and help you wake up. You can
find several different brands and styles, with prices starting around $60.
