Many people get stuck in a routine of dragging themselves out of bed to get to work. We barely allow enough time for breakfast.
Spice up your routine with our tips below and notice how much better you feel.
Bring The Light To You
“If you feel especially down on dark mornings, consider using a special light lamp alarm clock. The lamp gradually turns itself on (and gets brighter and brighter) to mimic natural dawn sunrise, to wake you up slowly before your alarm goes off. Research has shown people feel more positive and find it easier to get out of bed in the darker months after using this kind of device,” says Nutritionist, Cassandra Barns.

Preparation Is Key
To help you feel more rested , ready to hit the sheets and in turn more able to wake up in the morning. Nutritionist Cassandra Barns recommends taking magnesium. “Magnesium is also known as ‘nature’s tranquilliser’ so try where possible, to add magnesium rich foods to your diet.
These include buckwheat, sunflower seeds, fish and leafy green vegetables. I’d also recommend taking KalmAssure Magnesium Powder, by Natures Plus (£24.50, www.naturesplus.co.uk). This is a naturally chelated magnesium which is very easy to absorb and easily delivered to the tissues.”
