This interesting wikiHow page tells you how to wake up on time, but without an alarm clock. Waking up naturally allows your body to slowly adjust from deep sleep to a calm awakening.
The steps include getting into a rhythm by determining how much sleep you need, and then trying to go to bed and wake up at the same time each day until you begin to do so naturally.
The page also informs you how to aid the process by controlling the light, sound, temperature, and even smell of your environment.
Additional tips include:
- Being aware that time changes for daylight savings can interfere with your sleep-wake cycle
- Napping can also interfere with the circadian rhythms
- Stress can keep you awake
