Most of us dread the sound of our morning alarm telling us it’s time to rise and shine. It usually feels too dark, too cold and too early to be getting up, but a lot of this feeling is to do with the science of sleep cycles.
You usually have four to six sleep cycles per night, each ranging from light sleep to deep sleep. If you’re woken up during one of the deep sleep stages, it becomes notoriously more difficult and you’re often left feeling tired all day.
Everybody needs a different amount of sleep for their mind to function properly – there’s no one-size fits all. But by discovering how many hours you need, you can tailor your bed time to your wake-up time, giving you the amount of hours you need to feel fresh and alive.
Listening to music or catching up on the latest news is a no brainer while you’re having your morning shower. It’s a time-saver, puts you in a good mood and will stimulate your brain ready for the day ahead.
Nobody wants to be messing around with the razor when you’re in a rush in the morning. What’s more, if you’re feeling tired, you’re much more likely to cut yourself.
