RISE READY: WIN THE MORNING | WIN THE DAY
A good night’s sleep starts as soon as you wake up.
WHEN YOU WAKE UP
✓ Avoid checking your phone
✓ Seek natural light, open your blinds and curtains
✓ Drink a glass of lemon water
✓ Begin each day in gratitude with a postive mindset
✓ Increase circulation and bloodflow with light exercise
Remember: Gratitude releases positive chemicals in the brain.
DIAL DOWN: UNWIND | PREP FOR SLEEP
Get 10-12 hours of sleep per night.
90 MINUTES BEFORE BED
✓ Put on blue light blocking glasses. (You can find these on Amazon for about $20.)
60 MINUTES PRIOR
✓ Turn off all electronics
✓ Journal – write down what your grateful for each day
✓ Read or do breathing exercises (in with the good, out
with the bad)
