This lesson will focus on creating morning and bedtime routines.

I suggest waking up a little bit earlier each day. If you like your routine and sleep schedule as it is, then disregard. But a lot of us would like to wake up a bit earlier to journal, get some exercise or yoga in, meditate, or work on a project.

Slowly change your sleeping pattern. 

One of the keys to waking earlier is making sure you go to bed on time. If you need 6, 7, or 8 hours of sleep, the time you wake will determine the time to go to bed.

Start a bedtime routine. 

Yours could be a little different. Maybe you meditate or do a nighttime yoga. Do something that allows you to slowly wind down and that gets you ready for bed.

Don’t use screens in bed. I highly suggest not using any screens like a laptop or phone in bed, unless it’s a Kindle, which is dedicated reading. Make sure you ban yourself from using electronics in bed.

We want this to be a joyful change that we are excited about. That means going to bed on time and wake up with a joyful start to your day.

Experiment and see what works for you. Try it out and slowly adjust over the course of a month.
