    5. Sunlight/ bright light 

    Wake up your brain and keep alert during the day by getting as much light as possible.

     

    6. Reschedule

    once you’re a to smiling caffeinated sun dazzled deep breathing machine, think of what you have to do that day. On a normal day I break my tasks down into Urgent, to do and to be done and it can help to do this if you’ve had a bad night’s sleep. 

    7. Exercise

    If you’ve the time do some exercise /stretching first thing. Later on, you can have a walk at lunch time or a 5k run after work. Try to fit some kind of movement into your day. If you can do more, do more while always listening to your body.

    Not for everyone cons it might stop you sleeping later, you might get fired. Pro’s it can make you feel refreshed and energized. If you choose to take a nap limit it to about 20 mins, set that timer people!  A sleep mask will help and SMUG do wonderful masks btw, I swear by mine come night time.
