Day 8: Waking Up Well

Waking up well lays a great foundation for the day. Use these simple tips to help feel refreshed and ready for the day.

Take your time or jump out of bed – whichever suits your biology better.

You don’t always have to feel 100% ready to go at full speed as soon as you wake up. In fact, this is an impossibility for many people simply due to their biology so get out of bed the way that feels best for you.

Keep a supportive temperature while you’re sleeping. 

If you have temperature control something between 18-21 degrees Celsius is ideal. If not, try to plug draughts and get as much bedding as you need to stay warm.  

Your environment matters!

If you need peace and calm try to keep your living areas peaceful in the mornings, if you need to feel energised listen to your favourite tunes, if you need to connect then get a share of connecting as soon as you’re up! 

We’re looking forward to seeing you today for our Week 2 LIVE Call on RESILIENCE at 12pm AEST!
