We’ve reported many a time on the downsides of?not getting enough sleep, and the adverse effect this can have on your physical and mental wellbeing. ?Unless you’re one of those lucky “morning” people, the rest of us struggle and grumpily wait for our caffeine to get us through the early hours. For all these reasons, we welcome this handy video of tips and tricks to make leaving your beloved bed in the AM easier.

Avoiding alcohol is also a good idea as this can lead to sleeplessness and make you super irritable come sunrise. If you’ve not done so already, incorporating these lifestyle changes may not turn you into a morning person, but at the very least,’might help the process. These tips are handy to follow also.?
