The ability to get up early in the morning is a useful skill, but it is not so easy to master. Now the real reason for the difficulties that arise in the process of getting up early has become known.
How difficult it is for us to avoid the temptation to lie in bed for an extra ten minutes, delay the alarm clock and play for time … Many, after waking up, remain sleepy until lunch or even until the end of the day, cannot concentrate on important matters and feel overwhelmed.
The main causes of these consequences are insomnia at night, overwork during the working day, constant stress and psychological problems.
There is such a hormone of the pineal gland as melatonin. It depends on the presence of sunlight and performs the function of regulating life rhythms, including sleep and wakefulness. Typically, melatonin peaks around two hours before bedtime, and drops off by the time you wake up. If we do not follow the regime of the day and go to bed late, then the level of melatonin after waking up remains high for several hours — this causes an inability to concentrate and a feeling of weakness. As a result, circadian rhythms are disrupted and hormonal balance changes.
To avoid problems with sleep, American scientists recommend going to bed at sunset and walking more often in the fresh air. These simple rules will help restore and maintain the biorhythms of the body. As a result, there will be strength for an early rise, and maximum performance will be maintained throughout the day.
Council. Get ready for bed early. Often we postpone sleep until the last moment only because we are too tired during the day and by the evening we have absolutely no energy left to prepare for sleep. We are too lazy to brush our teeth, spread the bed and change into pajamas — until the last we sit in front of the TV or computer, not wanting to make a single extra move. Therefore, get ready for sleep not in five seconds, but gradually. And come up with a ritual. Every night, before you go to bed, do the same thing. For example, read a book. Soon, this will signal to your brain that it’s time to sleep.
