10 Tips for Becoming a Morning Person
Invite Light Indoors
“Bright light from a light box that is designed to emit light similar to sunlight is probably the most powerful thing you can do to force your body awake in the mornings,” says Dr. Marks. Your brain is sensitive to light and temperature, which is why we don’t sleep as well after a certain time of morning even if we’ve had the longest, hardest day and go to bed way past our bedtime. Light boxes can range in price from $50 to $200, so if spending the money on a light-emitting box doesn’t sound like a bright idea, place your bed in front of big, blind-less windows so that the sun can wake you in the morning.
