Because today, most people have this habit to use smartphones lying on their bed. And then they complain that they don’t even feel sleepy. The problem is when we use any electronic device just before sleep, it not only effects our sleeping habit and time but also disturbs our sleep’s quality. And that’s why, when we awake next morning we feel sleepy, lazy, and inactive. Because the rays from electronic devices is really harmful for us.

- No alarm policy: Yes you may find it stupid, but it’s true. A harsh morning alarm not only wakes you up with almost a heart attack but also wakes you up in the wrong way.

This will help you to get fresh air and sunlight too. The sun rays help your biological clock get reset and aligned to when the sun rises. And when you leave your bed to turn your curtains off, you will already feel asleep.
- Warm-up: After leaving your bed, don’t go for it again. This will make you lazier and waste you most of the morning time. Instead, you should do warm-ups.

Do give it a try.
