Get into a bedtime routine
We’re creatures of routine and that goes for our sleep patterns, too. Work out how much sleep you need (the recommended amount is around eight hours but some of us need a little more or less). If you’re falling asleep on your commute, take that as a sign that you need a bit more. Next, plan a bedtime routine.
Admittedly, life can get in the way, but try and get into the habit of going to bed at the same time each night. If it helps, set a reminder on your phone reminding you to start winding down. Likewise, try and get up at the same time each day – even at the weekend. Whilst it might be tempting to switch off that alarm on Sunday morning, it’s just going to confuse your internal body clock. Instead, use those extra hours at the weekend to catch up on Netflix or get that missed gym session in. Once your body is set in its new routine you shouldn’t need that lie in anyway (or so we hope, anyway…).
