How to Get Up Right Away When Your Alarm Goes Off
When your alarm wakes you up in the morning, is it hard for you to get up right away? Do you find yourself hitting the snooze button and going right back to sleep? That used to be part of my daily awakening ritual too. It’s nice and warm under the covers. Oh, I really should get up now. I should go to the gym. Maybe I’m trying to get myself up too early. I don’t have to get up right this minute, do I? I’ll bet my wife is toasty warm right now. [ Scootch… scootch… Zzzzzzzz ] Two hours later… Me: What time is it? Wife: Why do you keep setting your alarm if you aren’t going to get up when it goes off? Me: Oh, did you think that was my wake-up alarm? OK, so I wasn’t really intending for it to be a snuggle alarm. Fast forward to present day… My alarm goes off sometime between 4:00 and 5:00am… never later than 5:00am, even on weekends and holidays. But this time there’s no voice inside my head debating what I should do. So how do you go from scenario one to scenario two? Now how do you do this?

Feeling Tired in the Morning? Here's How to Wake Up Fast If you're like the typical American you don't bound out of bed in the morning eager to take on the challenges of the day. It's more likely that you crawl out of bed after tossing your alarm clock across the room in frustration. Being tired when you wake up in the morning is no laughing matter. If you're one of those unfortunate souls that can't seem to function until noon, you may be suffering from a condition known as sleep inertia. If you suffer from sleep inertia, it may help to reschedule your hours so you go to work later in the day. Another way to wake up fast in the morning is to establish a set sleep schedule and stick with it each day. Another trick to help you wake up fast is to flood your bedroom with light as soon as you awaken. To wake up fast, you need to eat a nutritionally sound, high protein breakfast. Lastly, if you have time, take a quick walk outdoors as soon as you awaken.

Estudio: Los inteligentes tardan más en dormir y prefieren la noche Las personas más inteligentes se sienten atraídos por la noche, momento y espacio que favorece su creatividad y desarrollo, es por ello que prefieren dormir más tarde e incluso desvelarse. Si bien diversos estudios alertan que dormir poco puede quitar años a la vida o ser perjudicial para la salud, la realidad es que quienes padecen de insomnio pueden ser más inteligentes. El dormir es un factor fundamental en la biología de los animales, y existe nueva evidencia que los patrones de sueño y la hora en la que una persona decide ir a dormir están ligados a su capacidad cognitiva, a su inteligencia. Al parecer la gente con mayor IQ (coeficiente intelectual) tiende a ser más activa durante la noche, mientras que aquellos no tan agraciados en en este rubro prefieren acostarse antes. LOS AUTORES.
