The last thing you want to happen is to get up on the wrong side of the bed. You will have difficulty dealing with other people since you’re grumpy. You’re also not in the mood to do the tasks for the day. If you don’t want it to happen, here are some things you must do.
Sleep early and be consistent
You feel bad when you get up because you didn’t get enough sleep. You need about eight hours of full sleep. If you only receive half of it, you will most likely feel terrible. If you do it consistently, you might even feel ill. Consistency is also necessary. Even during the weekends, you should continue following your sleeping pattern. Otherwise, you can’t get back to your normal body clock.
Solve problems with your loved ones before sleeping
When you have a lot in mind, you can’t sleep well. You will only focus on these issues. Even when you fall asleep, you will get up once you realise these issues exist. Try talking to your loved ones and solve these problems before closing your eyes. Don’t wait until the next day when things worsen.
Have a hot shower
It also helps to have steam showers at night. You will have elevated body temperature, which makes it easier to rest. You will also feel comfortable, and it’s the last thing in your mind. When you get up, you will recall how great your sleep was.
Improve your bedroom
The environment where you sleep also affects your sleep quality. Consider bedroom remodelling if necessary, and add quality furniture and accessories. Change the wall paint and repair damages. Organise your closet and keep clutter away. You will only see wonderful images with these changes before closing your eyes. Even if you must spend money on remodelling, you won’t regret the amount. Look for terrific designs you might apply to your room.
Don’t read bad news on social media
Avoid browsing social media before sleeping since it will deliver terrible news. If done close to bedtime, you won’t have anything else in mind apart from the bad news stories you read. If possible, stop using your phone a few hours before bedtime. It emits blue light, which makes it harder to sleep. It sends signals to your brain that prevents you from getting REM sleep.
Don’t think about what lies ahead
Once you think about how terrible your job will be, you will feel bad as soon as you get up. You also don’t want to think about the drama at work and how bad your colleagues are. Be optimistic and list all the good things that might come your way. You must also be grateful to have a reason to get up and leave your house. Other people don’t have such a reason.
With these changes, you won’t feel grumpy upon waking up anymore. If you can do other things to improve sleep, you should do it.
